Upright Vacuum Cleaner or Canister Vacuum Cleaner

  
  

One of the most common questions we are asked at our Vacuum Store is "should I get an upright or a canister vacuum cleaner?" or "which one cleans better an upright or canister vacuum cleaner?" The second question is easy to answer. They both clean pretty much the same. Depending on which make and models you are comparing, either one will get out the same amount of dirt.

The first question is not quite as easy to answer.  It really is a matter of preference. The difference between Upright and Canister vacuum really depends on how you want to use your vacuum cleaner,  what are your cleaning habits, what is your house like or what are you looking to clean with your vacuum.

Some people use the vacuum cleaner just for the carpet and flooring and usually an upright vacuum will work okay for that individual.

Others use the vacuum as a tool to clean the entire home. In addition to the flooring (carpets, hardwoods, tile etc..), they use the vacuum for cleaning above the floor also.  A canister is a better choice for this kind of cleaning.  It is easier to to use a canister vacuum for cleaning the stairs, cleaning the furniture, dusting the walls, cleaning the car ect..

There are a lot of real good vacuum cleaners available today. There actually has never been a better time than right now to purchase a new vacum cleaner. 

The best vacuum cleaners are available at your local vacuum store. To be sure you're getting the right vacuum cleaner for your individual needs, you need to visit your local vacuum store. The vacuum store is the ONLY place to shop for a vacuum.

Central Vacuums - The Ultimate in Convenience

  
  
Central Vacuums are the ultimate in power and convenience. Central vacuums can be installed in both new and existing homes and offer a number of great benefits:
  • Excellent filtration - 100% of the dirt picked up is removed from your living area

A central vacuum with a complete set of attachments lets you clean the whole house. It's powerful enough to clean every corner of the floor, and lightweight enough to clean every corner of the ceiling!

Easy Steps To A Clean Carpet

  
  

Has the Carpet been neglected?

Four Easy Steps to a Clean Carpet

1) Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum - Vacuum the carpet often with a GOOD Vacuum. Vacuuming removes the granular dirt that will cause premature wear.

2) Have The Carpets PROFESSIONALLY Cleaned - Professional cleaning by an IICRC Certified Firm should be done every 6 to 18 months depending on the traffic.

3) Remove Spots Immediately - Spots that are not immediately removed can turn into permanent ugly stains.

4) Apply Carpet Protection - To keep your carpet cleaner longer, have protector reapplied each time you have your carpet professionally cleaned.

Our Carpet Cleaning customers say it best

  
  

"On time as promised. The gentleman was polite and left no mess. Went out of his way to help."

- Rosemary E.


 

"John, it's always been a pleasure doing business with you. I've been bringing my vacuum cleaners to you for repairs for years now, and you always return them in perfect working order, and for very reasonable charges. I also appreciate that fact that you never attempt to sell me a new vacuum if my current one is repairable. I also hired your establishment to deep-clean my carpets throughout my house, and I was very happy with those results, also. And again, the price was very reasonable. I am also appreciative of the fact that you will take old vacuum cleaners and repair them to donate to worthwhile causes. I think this is very admirable."

- Martha C., Albany, NY

"Mike was one of the nicest [people] I've ever had come to my home. He was courteous [and] clean. We were well satisfied with everything."
