Choosing a new vacuum cleaner can be a little confusing. With so many brands on the market claiming theirs is the best, how do you know which one to choose? Most times buyers will choose a vacuum cleaner based on the way it looks, the cost or popularity. When you need to purchase a new vacuum cleaner thee are factors you need to look at to make the best decision.
What to Look for When Buying a Vacuum Cleaner
1. What will be vacuumed? Does your home have carpet, hardwood, tile or all three? You will need to choose your new vacuum cleaner based on what needs to be vacuumed. Higher piled carpet needs a vacuum that can be adjusted. Some will do it automatically and some allow you to turn the beater bar off so you don’t ruin your flooring.
2. Versatility. If you’re vacuuming more than just carpet, you will need to look for a vacuum cleaner that will work for you. You might want to vacuum furniture, vehicles, blinds, baseboards, stairs, etc. This means you’ll need to choose a vacuum cleaner with the right attachments. No one want to vacuum stairs with an upright vacuum that doesn’t have any attachments. Not only is it hard, it can be dangerous! Large homes will be easier to vacuum with a long cord, so you might want to consider going cordless. Just make sure you look at the battery life. Consider the weight of the vacuum cleaner too.
3. Allergies. Having allergy sufferers in your home requires a vacuum cleaner that will clean better. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, bags, and extra levels of filtration will make life easier for allergy sufferers, so consider purchasing a vacuum cleaner with these features. If you choose a vacuum cleaner that doesn’t use bags, you’ll need to be careful when you empty it otherwise you’ll be sending all the pet dander, dust particles, and everything else flying back into the air!
4. Cleaning the Vacuum. Vacuum cleaners need to be cleaned regularly and most people don’t do it. So bagless vacuums are easier, plus they’re cheaper to use because you don’t have to buy bags. Think about all the stuff your vacuum cleaner picks up. You will need to sanitize and clean all the parts of your vacuum cleaner, so think about that when choosing a vacuum cleaner.
