The Eureka AirExcel Compact No Loss of Suction Canister Vacuum, 990A has a powerful multi-cyclonic system, ensuring that all dust and debris is effectively removed from surfaces. It will clean both carpets and rugs, and floors that are made with tiles, linoleum, hardwood, or laminate.
Since it has a removable debris canister, it will never lose suction power like vacuum cleaners that have bags will. Its powerful suction power will quickly and easily clean your home. The Eureka AirExcel Compact 990A is built with a powerful 9 amp motor.
There is an adjustable floor nozzle brush lever so you can easily switch between hard floors or carpet. To adjust, you simply press the lever down with your foot to extend the brushes. If you’re vacuuming carpets, you pull the level back up to retract the brushes. There is no motorized brush roll, so it will work better on shorter piled carpets or flat surfaces.
The Eureka is a compact and lightweight vacuum cleaner that is perfect for cleaning smaller homes and apartments. It’s also suitable for seniors and people who may have difficulty pulling heavier vacuum cleaners around the room. The Eureka AirExcel Compact weighs only eight pounds, making it considerably lighter than even stick style or upright vacuum cleaners.
The wand is detachable from the hose so it can be used for vacuuming in the upper corners of a room, tops of shelves, or tops of draperies. You will be able to get into every inch of the room between its brush roll and the removable wand with attachable brushes. The brush roll will clean in a wide path of eleven inches.
The Eureka utilizes HEPA H6 filtration technology, making this vacuum cleaner suitable for people who have allergies. This internal HEPA filter will capture about 99% of all dust, allergens, and particulates that can make people sniffle and sneeze. It also has the added benefit of making a room much cleaner than if a non-HEPA filtration vacuum cleaner were used.
There is an easy empty dust cup. It can be quickly detached from the main unit and emptied into a trash bin. It’s also fully washable, so you can keep your vacuum cleaner looking good.
The flexible hose is a long six feet. The Eureka also has an automatic cord rewind, so you never have to worry about tripping over it when it’s not in use, or making a mess of your closet. The cord measures 16.5 inches long, so you’ll be able to vacuum almost the entire floor of your home without needing to unplug it and plug it into a new outlet. To rewind the cord all you have to do is press the rewind button and it pulls it in automatically.
The additional brushes in the box will help to clean every inch of every surface in your home. There are three included: the crevice tool, the dusting brush, and the telescoping wand. These easily attach to the end of the vacuum cleaner’s wand, after the tubing has been pulled from the brush roll section. There is no compartment to attach the brushes, nor an attachment to help connect them to the unit. You may have to devise your own plan on how not to loose them in the closet, or perhaps attach with velcro to the vacuum.
The Eureka AirExcel 990A costs around $200. It comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty. The entire vacuum cleaner measures 13” x 12” x 18.9 inches. The Eureka AirExcel Compact is made in China.

its got the powerful suction and compactness that is desired in a vacuum cleaner.
While the Eureka AirExcel Compact 990A can vacuum rugs and carpets, there is no motorized brush roll, so people who have pets that shed a lot of fur or hair may not find it suitable. It’s best suited for homes that have mostly hard floors, with the occasional throw rug. There is also no motorized pet brush roll, so it may be more difficult to remove embedded pet hair in your couch.
In order to extend the life of your vacuum cleaner it’s recommended that you empty the debris cup at least once per week, and clean the HEPA filter once per month. Taking care of your Eureka will extend the life.
The price of this vacuum cleaner is rather steep, considering it doesn’t come with a motorized brush roll or more than 3 brushes. But for people who don’t mind paying a bit more for the Eureka brand and its distinctive lime green look, plus for the great HEPA filtration technology, they’ll still find that its got the powerful suction and compactness that is desired in a vacuum cleaner.
