~Buyers Guide


Deep cleaning vacuums

The typical features with these types of vacuums 

include rotating brushes that agitate the carpet 

pile and loosen the dirt for better clean.  There

are some models that offer a handy automatic tool

conversion button or switch that you can push or 

flip as you move from carpet to hardwood floor.

Hand held vacuums

Hand held vacuums are light weight, can be corded

or cordless, and you can even mount most of them

on the wall if you prefer.  The performance of the

cordless models will depend on the charge of the

battery, as the battery power drops, so will the

suction power.

The two types of hand held vacuums include straight

suction and suction with a power brush.  If you

are considering a hand held vacuum cleaner, you

should consider its primary purpose, if you plan

to use it on a regular basis or occasionally on

smaller jobs.

Broom vacuums

Stick or broom vacuums are great for smaller type

apartments, quick clean ups in the kitchen, or

a family room.  The benefit of a broom vacuum is

the light weight.  If you have trouble pushing

your heavier upright around, the broom vacuum

may come as a relief.  You'll also have the option

of getting your vacuum corded or cordless.

They usually weight 2 - 7 lbs. and allow you to

easily store them in the closet, as they take up a

minimum amount of space.  For quick disposal of

the dirt and debris, most models are also bagless 

as well.

Wet or Dry vacuums

The wet/dry vacuum combination may very well be the

most versatile vacuum cleaner on the market today,

with numerous attachments and functions it is a 

very handy machine to have around your home.  The

canister types can vary from the smaller 6 gallon

sizes to the larger 22 gallon sizes.

The HP ranges as well, from 2 to 10 HP.  You should

always try to match the size of the unit to the 

size of the job and frequency of use.  

Upright vacuums

One of the most popular features of an upright

vacuum cleaner is the bagless system.  In addition

to the increased performance, there is no need 

to purchase any bags.  Emptying the canister can

be a little dusty, although it's still better than

messing with bags.

Most upright models come with a standard set of

attachments that may even include an upholstery

tool, a crevice tool, and even an extension wand.

A retractable cord and manual or automatic pile

adjustments are other common features.  A HEPA

filter is another common and popular feature found

with most upright vacuums.

Canister vacuums

Canister vacuum cleaners normally include retractable

cords.  Considering the fact that most cords are

around 25 foot in length, this feature will prevent

you from having to drag the cord around and 

possibly damage furniture.  A push of a button or

a slight tug on the cord will retract it into the

canister of the vacuum.

The nozzle can be one of two types, nozzle or 

power nozzle.  To get your carpet as clean as 

possible, it is recommended that you use the power

nozzle, which will agitate the carpet and loosen 

up the dirt for deeper cleaning.  

Another feature worth looking for is a suction

control switch, as this allows you to adjust the

flow of air for cleaning delicate material such

as upholstery and drapery.  

When choosing your vacuum cleaner, you should always

choose the one you like best.  The best vacuum for

the job is the one you should choose, as things

will work out much better that way.
