Vacuum cleaners play an important role when it comes to cleaning your house. Cleaning couches, carpets, curtains, sofas, etc, are nearly impossible without a vacuum cleaner. To get that satisfying cleaning, you need to find a powerful vacuum cleaner that is also packed with several necessary features that make cleaning convenient.
Vacuum cleaners come in several different types and with different features. You have to choose the one according to your preferences and what suits your cleaning style. There are several types of vacuum cleaners designed for specific jobs such as hand vacuums, wet/dry vacuums, car vacuums. However, in this article I will only focus on primary vacuum cleaners for your home.
Types of Vacuum Cleaners:
There are two types of vacuum cleaners; uprights and canisters.
Upright Vacuum Cleaners:
Upright vacuum cleaner is the most popular and preferred type of vacuum cleaner around the world. It is installed with a revolving brush roll that provides agitation and a motor for suction and turning the agitator brush. Some vacuum cleaners have two motors, one for suction and the other for the brush.
Upright vacuum cleaner is best for cleaning synthetic carpeting such as olefin, nylon or polyester. Some uprights have the ability to turn off the revolving brush for cleaning smooth surfaces like floors and table tops. Integrated extension hoses and on-board attachments have made uprights much more versatile.
Canister Vacuum Cleaners:
Canister Vacuum Cleaners are the most versatile vacuum cleaners. They are perfect at cleaning carpets and smooth floors. They come with cleaning tools to clean above-the-floor surfaces. They are also more maneuverable than uprights making it easier to get under tight spaces and furniture.
Canisters further have three types of vacuum cleaners based on the variety of the floor tools. There is a straight suction canister vacuum cleaner. It has a simple, non revolving brush for cleaning flat carpets and hard floors. Another type of canister uses a turbine or turbo floor tool. It features a revolving brush powered by the airflow created by the suction motor. The third type of canister has a power brush floor tool just like an upright vacuum cleaner. The revolving brush roll is driven by a separate electric motor. All the canister vacuum cleaners are used with a hose, floor tools, wands and tool attachments.
Bag or Bagless Vacuum Cleaner:
Choosing between a vacuum cleaner with a dustbag or a bagless one is a matter of personal preference. However, if someone in your family has asthma or allergies, or if you don’t want to spoil the quality of air inside the house, a vacuum with a dustbag is a good choice.
Though bagless vacuum cleaners do an excellent job in cleaning, it releases a cloud of dust when you remove the dust container and dump it into the dumpster. Also, many bagless vacuums come with filters that need brushing and washing to remove trapped particles.
