As one of the essentials fixture of any home, vacuum cleaners are part of any family’s cleaning routine. It’s no wonder then that they have evolved to become an incredibly convenient and powerful tool. Each home has different needs, so finding the perfect vacuum – at a discount nonetheless! - for your house requires some knowledge about the different features a vacuum can contain.
Power versus Maneuverability
For homes with thick, heavily carpeted areas, the priority should be to dig entrenched dirt out of the deep crevices of the carpet. Rather than vacuuming again and again, powerful new or refurbished vacuum cleaners can do the job in a single sweep. An upright vacuum with a bag tends to be the most powerful. For those homes that have fewer thick carpets but several twists and turns that are hard to reach, emphasize maneuverability. Switch to a canister vacuum so you can stretch into each corner.
Differing Floor Types
Many homes have rooms that transition from carpet to hardwood or tile with no break. In those cases, look for a new or refurbished vacuum cleaner that can make the transition with you. Some vacuums are able to slide seamlessly from one floor type to another, and others can do so with only the touch of a button.
Bag or Bag-less
While bagged vacuums tend to have a little more power than bag-less, there are additional factors to consider in your choice. Bag-less vacuums save you the cost of bags, but do require filter changes regularly. They can also emit dust and allergens into the air during cleaning, so can be a hassle for users with allergies.
