Choosing the best vacuum cleaner to suit your needs is easy with the following guide. Here we discuss the main points for you to consider. Doing so will ensure that when you enter your local store you will understand what you are looking for.
Upright or Cylinder.
The most popular type of vacuum cleaner bought in Ireland is cylinder vacuum cleaners. This is mainly due to their size which is smaller and easier to store. In saying that uprights are becoming more popular, especially Dysons. Both have advantages, below I outline a few points on each to consider.
Cylinder Vacuum Cleaners
- Great for smaller homes.
- Smaller and lighter.
- Great for cleaning on stairs and under furniture.
- Smaller for storage.
- Great for cleaning a wide range of surfaces
Upright Vacuum Cleaners
- Use brushes within the head, this makes for stronger cleaning.
- Easier to control.
- Great for cleaning larger areas.
- Ideal for carpets as the brush in the head gives a stronger clean.
- Brushes can help with the removal of dog hair.
- The larger head which can decrease the amount of time spent vacuuming.
- Can be difficult to move in smaller homes.
Bagged Vs Bagless
Bagless Vacuum cleaners are becoming very popular.
Bagless Vacuum Cleaners are cheaper to run as you do not have to purchase bags. In saying that, using a bag can be cleaner as less dirt will escape when it comes to emptying your vacuum cleaner. This can be beneficial for asthmatics who are allergic to dust. It is important to note that vacuum cleaners with bags can deteriorate over time as the bags become more full. Bagless vacuum cleaners are great for the endless suction power but the filters do require regular cleaning to maintain that suction power.
Cord Vs Cordless Vacuum Cleaners.
Like everything in life, there are positive and negatives to consider. Cordless vacuum cleaners are great and easy to manoeuvre around the house. While easier to maneouvre, we need to consider 2 very important factors about cordless Vacuum cleaners.
Runtime and Charge time. The runtime of a vacuum cleaner is how long it will run between charges. The charge time is important because if you run out of battery power you may have to wait until the unit is charged before you can complete the job.
Where you store your vacuum cleaner will need to have an electricity supply to ensure that your vacuum fully charged and ready to do the job at hand.
