Vacuum Cleaners-A Buyer’s Guide
A vacuum cleaner is one of the most important cleaning tools at home or work. Therefore, when buying a new vacuum cleaner, it is very important to make the right choice.
With an ever-growing selection of different models, types and styles of vacuum cleaners available today, choosing the right one for your needs can quickly get confusing.
Below is a breakdown of the main types of vacuum cleaners, which will make it a little easier to choose the right one.
Upright Vacuum Cleaner: This is the most popular type of vacuum cleaner in the United States. An upright vacuum cleaner provides more suction power than other types and is generally easier to use. Upright vacuums are ideal for cleaning large carpeted areas and rugs.
Canister Vacuum Cleaner – The Canister Vacuum Cleaner is great for clean floors as well as cleaning upholstery, curtains and blinds. Canister vacuum cleaners are lighter and more maneuverable, and are the best option if your home has a staircase.
Bagless Vacuum Cleaner: The bagless vacuum cleaner is bagless, so it is very handy when you need to empty the dust collector. Just take out the filter, pour it into the trash can and put it back in the vacuum cleaner. The suction power of the bagless vacuum cleaner is sufficient no matter how full the dust container is.
Robot Vacuum Cleaner – The Robot Vacuum Cleaner is set to automatically move around the room and runs on battery power. When cleaning is over, return to the charging base.
Central Vacuum Cleaner: It is installed in your home or work and has suction motor and bag located in a central location in the building. The vacuum inlets are located at various points throughout the building, so only a hose and accessories are needed to move from room to room. Central vacuums are usually more expensive and you will need to consider installation and design costs.
There are also portable vacuum cleaners that are commonly used for spot cleaning. They are small, lightweight, and generally cordless.
When choosing vacuum cleaners online, be sure to consider which surfaces it will clean. If you have to deal with pet hair, electric head brushes are best. Also consider the size of your home, the type of carpet, and whether you are cleaning stairs, curtains, upholstery, or cleaning under sofas. Taking the time to think about these things will help you make the best decision.
