Considerations when choosing a vacuum cleaner
Buying the best vacuum cleaner for the sort of work rate required - and the range of floors, carpets and other areas you need to keep clean - involves consideration of a few key factors. The most important of these will be deciding what basic type of vacuum cleaner is most suitable for your needs:
- Upright vacuum cleaners tend to be the most powerful, but are often heavier and less easily transported from area to area than other model types. Theyre less versatile for use in a range of small, tight spaces, and better suited to deep-cleaning in especially busy open areas.
- Cannister or cylinder vacuum cleaners are smaller and easier to move around/store away than uprights but can be slightly less powerful. Theyre highly versatile and often come with a range of handy accessories and add-ons specifically designed to make it easier to clean hard floors, staircases, upholstery, curtains, or under furniture.
- Handheld vacuum cleaners are usually powered by a rechargeable battery and contain a small collection bag or dust box that needs emptying regularly. Theyre especially well-suited to use in small areas for quick clean-ups, but are less suitable for large expanses of carpet or flooring.
- Wet and dry vacuums are considered multi-floor cleaning appliances, and have the ability to suck up both solid and liquid dirt. This makes them ideal for use in industrial environments, workshops and production facilities, where they can handle both dust/dirt and spilt liquids with equal efficiency.
