Hardwood Or Carpet?

When it's time to buy a new vacuum cleaner, there are a few key things to keep in mind. Do you have mostly hardwood floors? If your home is mostly hardwood, you will want to look at hardwood floor vacuums. A vacuum for hardwood floors specializes in this floor type. If you have mostly rugs you'll want carpet cleaners with good bristles and suction power for deep cleaning. Vacuums for carpet cleaning are the most powerful, generally speaking. A vacuum for hardwoods is powerful but gentler.

Robotic Vacuums

If you are looking at a robotic vacuum cleaner for your smart home, consider how long the battery lasts on a single charge, as running times vary. Choose one that has enough battery life to clean your home. The larger the home, the more your robot vacuum cleaner will be running.

Consider how many floors you need to be cleaned as some robot vacuums can hold floor plans for multi floor use.

Handhelds

Battery life is also important when considering a cordless handheld vacuum. Cordless handhelds are convenient for cleaning up small messes quickly. They make great car vacuums.

Filters

Choosing a vacuum with the proper filter is especially important if you have allergies or other respiratory ailments. If that is the case, HEPA filters are the best since they filter out the largest amount of allergens and other particles. These are helpful for everyone, but especially those with an animal allergy. They are considered to be the best filtration system. Chances are that your air purifier uses one too.

Pet Hair

If you have pets a pet hair vacuum is a must.  If it specializes in pet hair, your vacuum cleaning is going to be much more productive. A vacuum for pet hair just makes life easier for animal lovers.

Ease Of Use

When choosing a vacuum cleaner, make sure that it is comfortable to use and easy to maneuver around your home. It should also be light enough to use easily. Lightweight vacuums make floor cleaning faster and less strenuous.

Bags or Canisters?

Whether you want a vacuum that uses bags or a container model where you have to empty the canister will depend on your lifestyle. Bagless upright vacuums are less wasteful, but those with bags have to be emptied less often. The happy medium for many users is to use a bagged canister vacuum.

Prices Of Vacuums

A good vacuum can range in price from as low as $30 to as high as thousands, so how do you know what is a good price? The price that you pay should be based on performance, features, and ease of use.  Most consumers can get a top pick vacuum for between $100 and $1000. Remember, with a cheap vacuum, you get what you pay for.
