A Guide for Purchasing a Quality Vacuum Cleaner

 


Visitors: 105

There are thousands of types of vacuum cleaners and it can be confusing to know what type you should buy. Vacuums also vary greatly in price. Is it worth spending several hundred dollars on a vacuum or will a cheaper one suffice?

The first thing you must determine is what you are planning to do with your vacuum. Is it simply to vacuum the rugs in your apartment? Do you have a large home with a lot of carpeting? Do you want a vacuum that can operate on wood floors as well?

Vacuums can also be used in vehicles or in shops. It is important to determine what you want to do with your vacuum cleaner before you set out to purchase one.

Most vacuum cleaners are upright models now. However, there are still a few canister type models available. The better quality vacuums now come in the bagless variety. This means that all the dirt collected goes into a container which you simply remove from the vacuum and dump into the trash. Although vacuums with this feature typically cost more, you will save in the long run because you will not have to purchase vacuum bags. Also, it is a lot more convenient than realizing at the last minute that you are out of bags.

There are newer vacuum cleaners which don't use suction at all. Many people believe they work better than the suction type vacuums because they can not become clogged.

Hate to vacuum? Perhaps you should consider one of the robotic vacuum cleaners. They vacuum the floor on their own. They usually are round and have a hard time getting into corners so you might have to follow up with some spot cleaning every now and then.

If you want to purchase a nice vacuum don't forget about the extras. A quality vacuum will have an indicator that lets you know when the bag is full, if it is not bagless. A good vacuum should have headlights and be able to be adjusted depending on the height of your carpet or bare floor. The vacuum should also have accessories such as a curtain brush and a detachable crevice cleaner. It is even better if all these attach to the vacuum for easy storage.

Check to see what type of warranty the vacuum has. You will always need a vacuum cleaner and it is worth having one that is built to last and has a company who is willing to stand behind it.

Perhaps the most important factor in buying a quality vacuum cleaner is whether or not it is easy to find replacement vacuum cleaner parts and vacuum filters. It is easy to find Hoover parts for your vacuum but a lot more difficult to find store brand parts.

There are many vacuums to chose from. Vacuums even come in custom colors now! By taking into consideration these simple items, you are likely to find a vacuum that you are happy with for a long time.
