A necessary device
Vacuum cleaners are a necessary purchase if you happen to have carpeting in your home. Even hard-surface floors need vacuuming though, so don’t forgo the purchase of a vacuum cleaner if you don’t have carpeting. Many people assume that all vacuum cleaners are the same, but this is not true! Gaining more knowledge about the different features and types of vacuum cleaners available can allow you to find the right one for your home and your lifestyle. What kinds of vacuum cleaners are available?
There are two main types of vacuums available. The first is a canister vacuum that consists of two pieces that are connected by a hose. The canister holds the motor and the area where the dirt and debris are collected and the hose leads to the vacuum part that you run back and forth over the carpet or other flooring surface.
The second type of vacuum cleaner is an upright vacuum. It is a one-piece vacuum that contains the motor, reservoir for the dirt, the vacuuming apparatus and the beater head. There are several different choices even in these two categories and this is what overwhelms many consumers when they visit the store to purchase a vacuum cleaner. It is the most convenient way of removing dust and debris from every corner of your house.
The motor size between vacums can mean a big difference in the suction power and the durability of your machine. Buying the cheapest vacuum, you find may only give you an average vacuum that lasts for just a few years, and doesn’t clean your floors well. If you want a vacuum cleaner that will last for several years, choose one with a quality motor and superior suction power.
The suction of the vacuum cleaner is important. If your suction is not strong enough, you will be continuously leaving dirt and debris in your carpet that wears into the padding, and all that dirt cuts the carpet fibers and ultimately ruins your carpeting. The measure of suction is known as the CFM (cubic feet of air per minute). In most vacuums, their CFM is around 40 which isn’t enough to do a thorough job on your carpeting. Locating a vacuum cleaner that is around 100 CFM can get even sand out of your carpet, so that your carpet will last longer and it will be cleaner. There are different shapes and sizes of brush that are available for vacuum cleaner. For a particular corner, a particular type of brush can be used. This helps in cleaning the dust which is otherwise not accessible.
Another question is to HEPA or not? If you or a family member suffers from allergies, then a HEPA vacuum cleaner is probably calling your name. This type of vacuum has a specially designed filter that helps to filter many of the allergens. It can really be helpful in a home with allergy sufferers, because it can filter out dust, pollen, and other allergens. It sucks away all the dust and does not allow the dust particles to travel back in the air. It provides a healthy surrounding for you which reduces allergy or any other health issues.
Take care of your vacuum cleaner. Look at the vacuum and see how easy it is to change the vacuum bag, belt, etc. Some vacuums make it very difficult to do these simple little things yourself and this can end up costing you more money. Watch out for items left on the floor you don’t want to run over with the vacuum that can cause damage to your machine. Being able to find the belts and bags at your local store is very important, too. You don’t want to have to visit a special store to keep your vacuum running efficiently.
Gaining knowledge about any purchase that you are going to make is very important. You want to be sure that you are going to be completely satisfied with your purchase for many years. By learning more about the item that you are going to purchase, you will be better able to make a decision that you will be happy with for many years to come. It is important to know about the pros and cons of the product that you are going to purchase. Read the instructions carefully for an easy handling of the vacuum cleaner. This will make your work smoother and faster.
