About the Author


My name is Robert Kay, I'm the founder and owner of homevacuumzone.com and I've been researching, writing and editing articles for the site since launching it in 2015.

When I'm not reviewing vacuums I enjoy spending time with my family and playing golf.

I also have a full-time job working as a Project Manager in the construction industry. I have a BA Honors Degree in Construction Project Management.

Why did I start a site about vacuum cleaners?

Old Vacuum Cleaner Retail Store

I developed a keen interest in home electrical appliances from a young age. I spent many years working part-time at my Dad’s electrical shop in my hometown of St. Annes, Lancashire, United Kingdom during the 1990s whilst I was still at school.

The photo image that you see above is our old retail and repair shop, which was my Dad’s business premises for around 20 years. We used to sell and repair all types of electrical appliances including washing machines, dishwashers and of course, vacuum cleaners.

During my time working on weekends and after school I learnt a lot about the engineering, components and features of the modern day vacuum cleaner. I learnt how to test vacuum cleaners and how to service and repair them. I still enjoy researching and learning about new electrical appliance technology to this day. So when I decided to start a website and was looking for topics, a site about vacuum cleaners was a natural fit.
