What to look for when buying a new vacuum cleaner
If you're looking to buy a new vacuum cleaner the good news is you've never have more choice than you do right now. Vacuums have come a long way in terms of technology, design and functionality in the last decade or so. Experts say you should vacuum at least 1-2 times a week and that number increases depending on the the number of occupants in the household, whether the floors are hard floors like tiles or timber flooring or if you have carpet and whether there are pets and children in the home.
With this in mind there a few things you should consider when purchasing the right vacuum for you and your situation. For example we would only recommend a hand held vacuum for smaller households or homes that are primarily hard floors. Battery life aside, handheld vacuums are handy but are yet be counted on to do any heavy lifting in the vacuum arena.
The most important thing for a vacuum cleaner is to have good suction power so you can spend as little of your precious time vacuuming as possible. A good rule of thumb here is if the vacuum bag or canister is not at least half full after a full house vacuum, the suction power really doesn't cut the mustard.
If you've found a vacuum with adequate suction power, make sure it's easy to use and not bulky or cumbersome otherwise you won't want to use it. Another thing you should check out is the cost of replacement bags or accessories. Sometimes the vacuum itself will be cheap enough but then you have to fork out for the special vacuum bags or accessories.
Having a vacuum cleaner that is easy to use and does a great job is what you want and will encourage you to vacuum as regularly as you should. Regardless of how good your vacuum cleaner is, nothing is is a replacement for annual steam cleaning by a professional carpet cleaning company to draw out all those pollutants and soils that have worked down to the base of the carpet pile. Steam cleaning will also remove dust mites and bacteria that is lurking in your carpet fibers. Call Results Home Services now on 3823 2500 for a quick quote!
