Post Vacuum Cleaners - Getting The Best Buy For Your Money
by: Chuck Lunsford

Without a doubt one of the most common housekeeping appliances is the ordinary vacuum cleaner. These range from light-duty models up to the 100 gallon shop models. What vacuum you choose depends largely on the demand you expect to place on it. In this article I'll offer a few tips on how to choose the right one for your needs.

Types Of Vacuums:

Vacuum cleaners come in variety of shapes, sizes, styles and features. There is the small; rechargeable handheld which is best suited for cleaning up specific spots that may be difficult to reach with other types of cleaners. Uprights and canisters are other types that are used for around the home or small office. The upright is lighter and more maneuverable but lacks the ability to handle tougher jobs, while the canister vacuum is perfect for harder jobs around the home but is more restricted in it's movement. If you live in a home with two or more floors the upright may be the way to go; just make sure you have obtain additional stair cleaning attachments. Another type of vacuum gaining popularity is the broom type which is great for apartment and condo dwellers that have smaller areas to keep clean.

Buying A Vacuum Cleaner:

Keep in mind the phrase "You get what you pay for" when making a vacuum purchase. Making the right buying decision should be made according to your specific needs, but don't scrimp on quality just to save a few bucks. All vacuums are not created equal.

Some things to consider:

Type - your *** DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK!!! *** choice in the type of vacuum cleaner to purchase depends on the surfaces you'll be cleaning, so be sure you keep this consideration in mind before buying.

Comfort - You wouldn't buy a car that was hard to drive, so why is a vacuum any different? Handling is an important feature in buying a vacuum cleaner. Check how well it handles, its weight, size and comfort of use.

Noise - This is where the higher price models really have it over the cheaper brands. If you are sensitive to noise, then you might want to consider buying a higher priced model with insulated materials around the motors.

Filtration - Check the efficiency of its filter, especially if you are prone to allergies. Research the HEPA rating of different models online before you go shopping. Vacuum cleaners with highly rated filtration systems usually come at a premium, but are more effective in filtering out particles. If price is your main consideration then choose a vacuum with an efficient dust collector. Typically these collectors consist of a bag or plastic container.

If you're not into replacing your vacuum every few years go with a metal framed unit. A longer cord is also a plus if your home has fewer electrical outlets or you simply don't want to stop cleaning every few minutes to change outlets.

If you decide to spend the extra money for a higher quality unit then seriously consider purchasing an extended warranty as well. Even a Mercedes has to go to the mechanic from time to time.

There is a lot to consider when buying a vacuum cleaner. To reiterate, it largely depends on your intended use and how much you are willing to spend. Take your time and test a few models before you purchase the one to suit your needs.
