Vacuum Cleaners

Vacuums are appliances which are designed to clean flooring and other materials such as hard floors, carpet and upholstery using suction. They sucks up and lift away dust, dirt and other small particles. They are often referred to as a Hoover, a name of a brand that had a popular line of vacuums in the 20th century.

What types of vacuum cleaners are there?
Upright vacuum cleaners usually have a bigger head covering a larger surface area, making them ideal for large carpeted floors. Their size offers a larger capacity so you don’t have to empty them as often. Upright vacuums are better for long term use as they do not require you to bend over, which could affect your back in the long term.

Cylinder vacuum cleaners are suitable for cleaning smaller and areas that are harder to reach. This is due to their handle providing a longer reach. However, sometimes they are not as powerful as uprights. Cylinder ones are great for at home, their small size means they are also easy to store away.

Wet/Dry vacuum cleaners have the ability to suck up both wet and dry debris. These are most popular in industrial environments where you may be required to clean duoclean both liquid spillages and dust/dirt. This types of vacuum is considered a multifloor cleaner.

Cordless vacuum cleaners can vary in size and power. Because they are cordless they are often battery powered and rechargeable. A cordless vacuum is great for portability as you do not have to keep moving the plug to different sockets as you move. These are often come in the application of a cordless handheld vacuum.

Handheld vacuums are often much smaller than others. They are usually battery powered and contain a small bag or dust box. They are ideal for use in small areas for quick clean-ups.

Are bagless vacuum cleaners better than bagged?
Vacuum cleaners will be either bagged or bagless. Bagged means that the debris lifted away by the vacuum is stored inside a separate bag, attached to the vacuum. This bag is replaceable and must be changed once full.
Bagless cleaners store the debris inside a cup or chamber. This is then emptied straight from the vacuum cleaner. The benefit is that you do not have to buy additional bags. However, there are more parts to the bagless vacuums, for example filters.
