Looking for the right vacuum cleaner?
There are so many to choose from but hopefully we can help you to narrow down those choices by comparing types, prices and brands. Above you will see links to reviews of the various types.
Todays competitive market is driving new design and technical features as vacuum cleaners become more and more high tech. However comprehensive tests have shown that high priced, feature laden machines do not necessarily clean better.
HEPA filters are often used in vacuum cleaners and can trap pollen and other allergens, making them ideal for allergy sufferers. However the cleaner chamber needs to be sealed and do not allow air bypass the filter.
Uprights are better for large clear areas of carpet and for removing pet hair but not so good if you have bare floors or stairs to clean. They can be noisier (high wattage can mean more noise) and are usually heavier.
Cylinder vacuum cleaners are usually lighter, more reliable, and generally quieter running.Good for cleaning hard floors,under furniture and of course, stairs, but not so good at removing pet hair, though there are attachments which can deal with this.The long hose gives more flexibility when cleaning walls,ceilings,cupboards,curtains and soft furnishings. Storage of cylinder vacuum cleaners is usually easier too.
There is no difference in efficiency between bagged or bagless models. The benefits of the bagged vacuum cleaner are less dust escaping when emptying the machine, an obvious asset to allergy sufferers but, of course there is the added expensive of purchasing the bags. Remember that your machine will always work more efficiently when the bag or dust container is empty
Cyclonic technology is found in bagless types of vacuum cleaner. By creating a vortex of air the heavier particles fall and are collected for disposal. With the addition of extra filters even microscopic dust particles can be trapped,making thema better choice for allergy sufferers.
For heavy-duty cleaning jobs,wet and dry vacuum cleaners can pick up liquids as well as solids. On its way through the vacuum cleaner the air stream passes through a wider area where the suction is less strong. A bucket collects the droplets and heavier dirt particles. When you have finished you simply empty the bucket.
Not as powerful or versatile as a standard upright or cylinder vacuum and often more expensive, these robovacs can be very useful to those who are disabled or for use in areas which can only be cleaned at certain times eg office or warehouse.They do operate well on wooden or tiled floors, and most will automatically return to their charging base.
