Making a choice can be very difficult when you want to buy a vacuum cleaner. The fact is, there are just hundreds of models out there. There is a vacuum to suit every need, taste and budget. There are a few points you might want to consider before buying a vacuum cleaner, such as the type of surfaces you have in your home, what kind of machine would be most comfortable for you to use around the house, and if it has all the attachments you need.

Choosing a Vacuum Cleaner

If you have a home with large carpeted areas, an upright vacuum cleaner is a good choice for big spaces. It might be a little heavier than other types and harder to move around, but uprights are used mostly to clean carpets because that's what they're most efficient at. The cylinder or canister vacuum cleaner is not as strong as an upright vacuum, but it's great to use in small spaces like apartments. Handheld vacuum cleaners are the best for hard to reach spots or for cleaning up small messes. They are battery operated or rechargeable.

Many upright vacuum cleaners have headlights on them, though this is not an issue unless you live in a very dark place. Make sure your vacuum cleaner has a long cord to make it easier to move about. A vacuum cleaner should ideally have a caddy to hold all attachments and parts tidily.

The dust collector is something else to think about. Buying dust bags for your vacuum cleaner can be a hassle sometimes; if you can stock up at once, then it is recommended that you do so. Vacuum cleaners can be made out of metal or plastic. Metal can is more durable, while plastic is lighter to move around.
