Believe it or not. The choice of vacuum cleaner is one of the most important purchases with regards to cleaning your home. You see, not all vacuum cleaners are equal, so you need to purchase the one that will best get the job done and the one that is ultimately good for you and your carpets.
There are so many vacuum cleaners to choose from ranging from cheap to extremely expensive. What you need is the one that best fits needs over flashy features that you don’t really need. The most popular types are canister and upright vacuum cleaners. They’re making a massive come-back since they fell out of fashion in the 80’s and 90’s.
The upright ones fell out of popularity because it was a struggle to clean the stairs since they were so bulky and hard to maneuver. However, if you look at the vast majority of new upright vacuum cleaners on the market, they now come with stair attachments (making it easier to clean your stairs).
It’s also a good idea to look at the wattage of vacuum cleaner. This will dictate just how much power and force your vacuum cleaner has and how long the suction will last as it starts to fill up with dirt, dust and debris.
Try and get hold of a vacuum that is bagless and has a filtration system. Not only are these powerful, they are cheaper to use since you won’t need to continually buy bags for them. It also ensures that dirt and dust aren’t blown back into the atmosphere.
If you or a family member suffers from allergies, then buying one of these particular vacuums is a must!
Last but not least. Ensure your vacuum cleaner has a rotating brush. This will enable extract a lot more dirt and dust from each carpet fiber in your carpet (surely that’s good thing?).
