Vacuum Cleaners

A guide to purchasing the perfect vacuum cleaner

If you’re looking to purchase a new vacuum cleaner then you have a variety of options:

Firstly you need to establish which style of vacuum cleaner you need – this is largely defined by it’s intended purpose.  For vacuuming your house, you’ll be interested in either a cylinder or upright vacuum.  However for your car or caravan, then a handheld or rechargeable vacuum cleaner will be more suited.  It’s also worth bearing in mind where you wish to store your vacuum cleaner – unlike a microwave or kitchen appliance, you’ll probably not wish to have your vacuum cleaner permanently on display, and would instead have it stored under your stairs or in a cupboard – so it’s worth making sure it fits into your storage prior to purchasing.

The manufacturer and the guarantee that subsequently comes with the vacuum cleaner is also worth looking into – ideally choose a manufacturer who has a good reputation for both creating reliable appliances, as well as providing a decent level of customer care should any issues arise.

If you have pets or particularly deep or fluffy carpets then you may need a higher powered vacuum cleaner than usual – the higher the wattage of the vacuum cleaner, then more suction it should provide, and as a result it should be able to remove more dirt and hair from your flooring.

If you’re on a tight budget, then it can be worth your while looking for refurbished or second hand models – or if you can find a sale on vacuum cleaners then you may well be able to find a bargain.  Looking at multiple retailers is advised here, as vacuum cleaners prices can vary drastically from shop to shop.

Vacuum Cleaner reviews

As a final note, it is advised that you read actual customer reviews of vacuum cleaners – this will enable you to find any common issues, or indeed praise.  Often the most expensive model may not offer the best performance, and by reading vacuum cleaner reviews you may discover a cheaper and more effective vacuum that saves you time and money in the long run.
