4 Tips for Buying the Best Vacuum Cleaner

I believe each family has a vacuum cleaner. To be honest, I have some bad experiences with those vacuum cleaners with poor performance before. So this guide is not the type of “a list of best vacuum cleaners”. However, I hope these simple but practical tips will be helpful for buying your best vacuum cleaner and save you some money and frustration.


1.       Determine your daily task and choose the right one.

Vacuum cleaners are capable of cleaning different places in your house including but not limited to bare floors, carpets, stairs, upholstery, draperies, etc. However, you should be aware that not a single vacuum cleaner can do all the tasks mentioned above. Therefore, you should consider your everyday need and major jobs, and then decide which vacuum cleaner to buy.


2.       Consider and decide the type.

Many people know that there are various vacuum cleaners divided by their structure and working mechanism. There vacuum cleaners with bags and without bags. There are canister vacuum and upright vacuum. There is no conclusion concerning which one is better, simply because each type does have its own features. You should look at their features and functions before you make your decision. Let me explain this to you in short. A vacuum cleaner with bag is normally easy to maintain—you just need to remove the bag and change a new one.However, the maintenance price will be higher than a bagless one due to the bag changing and there may appear an embarrassing situation that a certain type of bag is discontinued to produce. A bagless vacuum cleaner requires less maintenance cost, instead, it needs vacuum filter and moreover, it is difficult to remove all the debris completely and not mess up. A canister vacuum cleaner is generally more versatile than an upright vacuum cleaner. Both of them can deal with carpets, but canister vacuum is also great at cleaning bare floors, stairs and corners.


3.       Go as light weight as possible.

It is true that many models can be up to almost any tasks, but in the same time, they are too heavy to maneuver and move around.In addition, heavy vacuums often cause accelerated fatigues. Based on this fact, if possible, choose the lightest vacuum cleaner that fits your tasks.


4.       Check the serviceability, maintainability and warranty.

Checking the serviceability means you need to figure out if all the supplies of your vacuum cleaner are continue, including bags, belts, filters and other parts. Looking at maintainability means you should never consider a sophisticated vacuum cleaner because some models require a technician to do. Last but not least, the product you’re look at should have a warranty of at least one year for parts and labor, and you can add more years for extension.


Happy vacuuming!
