Other things to look for while buying vacuum cleaners

After looking at vacuum cleaners, there are several factors to be considered.

  • Bag vs bagless vacuum cleaners

Bagged vacuum cleaners are equipped with dust bags to store the collected dust and dirt. The bagged bins provide better filtration, making it an efficient cleaning function. Bagged vacuum cleaners are best for asthma and dust allergic patients as it does not expose you to dust when removing the bag.

Bagless vacuum cleaners are equipped with plastic containers to store the collected dust. The vacuum cleaners collect dirt and dust and dispose of them in this container. Unlike bagged vacuum cleaners, it does not lose suction power when the container is full. We can use these containers many times. In addition, the desired suction level can be adjusted depending on the type of surface being cleaned.

  • Wet and dry vs dry vacuum cleaners

Wet and dry vacuum cleaners are versatile and flexible, designed to pick up dry and wet spills. Its dual aim of dusting and wet wash allows it to differ from regular vacuum cleaners. They equip it with a 1600WTTs motor that allows the removal of both solid and liquid articles with ease. The reusable dust bag provides 3 litres of capacity that helps collect dry dust. The blower function of the vacuum is easy to use and helps in blowing the dust easily and effortlessly. The blower power can also be adjusted depending on the type of surface being cleaned.

Dry cleaners can deep clean the area by picking up the lightest particles. It is to be selected when looking for dry cleaning surfaces. The 360° four swivel wheel allows you to conveniently take the unit anywhere you wish to clean. Moreover, they come with 5 to 6 Metres long power cords that are efficient and function for a longer time, unlike cordless vacuum cleaners.

A Rapid wet and dry vacuum cleaner with a blower can be a very good option to go for.

  • Suction and motor power

The performance of a vacuum cleaner mainly depends on the suction power. A vacuum cleaner with high suction power is more effective in getting rid of the dirt in carpets, corners, between furniture, etc.

Motor power consumption is also an important aspect to focus on when buying vacuum cleaners. Vacuum cleaner motors with high Watts are said to be powerful and suck better.
