Buying a new vacuum can be a simple task when you know what to look for. In the first video of a 4 part series, David at Vacuum Sales explains the important things to consider as you search for the right fit for your home.
So…you’re on the hunt for a new vacuum. You have a lot to consider and everyone will have an opinion on what you should buy. Let me help you know what to look for so you can make an educated decision for yourself. Below are some questions that will help you get a vacuum that is customized to meet your needs.
– What are you vacuuming?
What your vacuuming is a basic and commonly overlooked question! If it is considered, most people just think hard floors and carpets. Hard floors and carpets are something we will cover a little later on, but vacuums can be used to clean many other things! Vacuums have a wide range of uses such as cleaning furniture, cars, window tracks, and appliances. They can also dust things like blinds, fireplaces, trim, and bookshelves. Vacuums are so versatile and are under used in cleaning other areas of the home! Look around your home or business and consider what you want your vacuum to do and look for that in your next vacuum.
– Are your floors carpet or hardwood?
Many vacuums will advertise that they can clean both carpet and hardwood. However, it is important to recognize that they may not always do as good of a job as they claim. Choosing the wrong vacuum can actually be damaging your floors. If a vacuum doesn’t have height adjustment and a stiff brush it can damage your carpet! The aggressive brush rubbing against carpet fibers can break down the carpet fibers prematurely. Some Dyson and Shark models are known to cause this problem, but I wouldn’t limit it just to those brands.
There are a lot of vacuum cleaners that also claim they clean hard floors. Some do, but they will also damage and scratch your hard floors in the process because the bottom of the vacuums are hard plastic. That will then cause the vacuum to drag dirt across your hard floors scratching them in the process. If you want to vacuum your hard floor be sure to choose a vacuum with a protective coating on the wheels and a soft bottom to prevent your vacuum from scratching your floors.
Your vacuum cleaner should be one of the most used tools in your home. Choosing a vacuum with the ability to clean various parts of your home will make cleaning easier and more efficient. Which will make it easier to clean those areas of your home that are often neglected.
