To start of.. What is a vacuum cleaner?

A vacuum cleaner is a device that uses an air pump to create a partial vacuum to suck up dust and dirt, usually from floors, and optionally from other surfaces as well. The dirt is collected by either a dust-bag (bagged vacuum cleaners) or a cyclone (bagless vacuum cleaners) for later disposal.

Vacuum cleaners, which are used in homes as well as in industry, exist in a variety of sizes, types and models and are produced from many different brands. This article will guide you on purchasing a vacuum cleaner tips.

Vacuum Cleaner Purchase Tips

Looking for a few neat tips on your next vacuum cleaner purchase? Or you’re ready for the perfect vacuum cleaner for you and your home? Here’s a quick look at what you’re up for.

Like any other home maintenance task, vacuuming will not be a hassle when you have the right equipment for it. A powerful vacuum cleaner, built to last by a reliable maker can make all the difference to your clean-up routines.

The right vacuum cleaner will take the stress out of cleaning: it does its job so you can do yours at no extra effort. That’s the way it should be. Take a look at a few pointers for picking the perfect vacuum cleaner for a long and fruitful run with your home maintenance.

1. Your Cleaning Needs

You could start with thinking about your vacuuming needs. How often does your home need to be vacuumed? What sort of floors do you have? Do you have carpets and what kind? What about pets and fabric fibre? What other surfaces do you vacuum?

This should give you a good idea of how powerful you need your vacuum cleaner to be. Of course, the more powerful the machine, the better the cleaning but it could help you choose between a smart, functional and durable midrange model or invest in a solid powerhouse which will give you the cleaning your home needs.

If you vacuum frequently, say daily or every few days, you may not need a super-powerful model. Once a week runs could do with a more powerful model so you get a thorough clean without having to spend more time on it than you should. Base your purchase on your cleaning frequency and intensity to make sure you don’t settle for a lesser version of the product you really need.

2. Suction Power VS Budget!

Suction makes all the difference to the vacuuming experience so go for the model with the best capacity within your budget. Other performance keys are the model’s ability to dislodge and draw dirt into the machine: this is determined by both design and the power capacity.

Look for information on air watts- the higher this measure is, the more powerful its likely to be as a thorough and penetrative cleaning machine. Experts recommend an air watt measure of 200 and over to get great performance.

When you work out a budget for your purchase, take these features into account- if a vacuum cleaner is at the core of your cleaning routine, you need to be sure you’re putting money into a buy that will see you through.

3. Vacuum Cleaning Style

When you’re looking at all those models, take note of their cleaning style. Bagless models can be ideal when you don’t want to bother with keeping stock of bags and you want to avoid the messy cleaning and replacing that comes with it. With bagless models, you only need to empty the dirt straight into your bin by hitting the right button. Also, bags that get full can affect suction so you’ll have better suction with bagless types.

Also, do you prefer the cordless model? Even not all vacuum types come with cordless models, but certain cordless vacuums are still popular in the market. If you’re going to be cleaning large rooms or long corridors, you may want to look into cordless options- but make sure you get one with a decent run time, at least more than half an hour.

4. Vacuum Accessories and Replacement Costs

Look at what you’re getting by way of vacuum heads. See what they do for your cleaning needs- are there specific kinds of brush heads that you’re looking for in your next buy? Keep an eye out for design aspects that enhance the vacuuming process.

For example, canister vacuums often come with several on-board tools that can help you in the cleaning process. You also needs to consider where to get the replacement parts – is there can be easily found on both online and local stores.

5. Do Vacuum Brands Really Matter?

Needless to say, whatever your budget, stick with a trusted, reputed brand and make sure you don’t just spend on your next vacuum cleaner, you invest in it. If you are experience users, you will notice that Miele brand are high-end vacuum manufacturer while Dirt Devil and basically cheap.

Here are some of the popular vacuum cleaners manufacturers:

Canister vacuums – Miele, Panasonic, Dyson, Eureka, and Dirt Devil.
Upright Vacuums – Hoover, Shark, Dyson, Dirt Devil, and Bissell
