Finding the right vacuum cleaner can be overwhelming with all the different vacuums in the cleaning industry. To find the right one for you, there are many things you have to take into consideration. Austin Professional Cleaning Services has compiled a list of tips on buying a vacuum cleaner that can help you decide on one.

Usage

Vacuum cleaners can clean different types of surface like carpets, hardwood floors, upholstery and draperies, and stairs. There are some vacuums that have special filters which can help eliminate dust mites, pet dander, and odors. The best thing to find the vacuum you need is to read the features the vacuums offer which can help you decide depending on what you are looking for.

Weight of the Vacuum Cleaner

Do you vacuum your carpet often? If you do then the light-weight stick model is recommended. If you wait longer than a week to vacuum then you should go with a larger upright or canister model which has a more powerful motor. Another factor to take into consideration is how big your home is and how much carpet you have. If you have a large home with large carpets you should pick a bigger and more powerful vacuum.

Bag-less vs. Bags

Vacuum cleaners without bags are cheaper to maintain. The problem they have is that when you empty the dirt collected, it can be messy and the dirt can fall again where you just cleaned. The bag-less vacuums also need a filter which can be more expensive to replace than the bags. The vacuums with bags are easy to maintain since you just have to throw away the bag the problem is that buying the bags can be expensive and sometimes the bags get discontinued. We recommend the new vacuums without bags since the vacuums with bags loss suction when they are full.

Upright vs. Canister

Both of the vacuums have their advantages. The upright vacuums have a carpet height adjustment which can help you clean all the different types of carpets you have. The upright vacuum are also handy to store and quick to take out. The Canister vacuums are lighter than the upright which make them easier to move around and are better for the hard to reach places. They are also smaller and easier to store than the upright. Picking between these two depend on your personal preference.

    It was amazing to read that the Canister vacuums are lighter than the upright which makes them easier to move around. Our vacuum exploded last week and left a heavy cloud of smoke that set off our fire alarm. We will be sure to keep in mind that information when we talk to a salesman about buying a new one!
