Quick tips for home vacuum clean buyers

Recommend this page to Google

There is such a large variety of vacuum cleaners that choosing the right one can be a challenge. The following tips would help you narrow down to a few candidates which would fulfill most of your requirements.

  1. If you are going to be vacuuming mostly carpet, upright vacuums are better. Canister vacuums are more suitable for floor vacuuming. Also note that canister vacuums are easier to use around stairs and tight spots.
  2. Vacuum cleaners with bags are better at trapping dust and tiny bugs than bagless vacuum cleaners. Bagless technology is fairly new and is getting better but at the time of this writing, bag vacuums tend to be better in their ability to capture dust and bugs from air exhaust.
  3. Pet hair requires more suction power. If you have a serious pet hair problem, consider buying a pet vacuum. Pet vacuums are specifically designed households with furry pets.
  4. Vacuums cleaners exhaust air back into your house. The exhaust contains fine dust particles. HEPA filters remove these particles from the air. However, they are expensive and have to be replace regularly. If you have small kids or someone with Asthma or dust related allergies, you should consider buying a HEPA filter vacuum.

Once you have decided what kind of vacuum you will be needing, you will be left with a few vacuums to choose from. To pick the most suitable one among these, consider the following features:

  1. What filters are used? How easy is it to clean the filter? How often do you have to change it and how much do they cost?
  2. Is it using a power bar or a revolving brush. Revolving brushes (metal rod is better than plastic) provide deep suction.
  3. Does the weight, structure, cable length or hose type suit your needs?
  4. Is there manufacturer's warranty? If yes, how easy or difficult is it to use the warranty?
  5. Does it have nice perks like a headlight or bag full indicator?
