How To Choose A Vacuum Cleaner

Posted by John Gregory on Mon, May 30, 2011 @ 11:05 AM


Want to Make Sure You're Getting the Best Value?

Of course you do. Look - you'll be vacuuming your home for years to come. Shouldn't you get a vacuum that will last? Shouldn't you buy one that will save you money in the long run?

We think so. That's why we've assembled five tips for evaluating a vacuum purchase. 

1. How Well Does it Clean?

All vacuums are not created equal. Does yours really get the dirt and dust out? Make sure to ask your salesperson just how well it gets the dirt out of your carpet, and the grunge off your floor.

2. How Easy is it to Use?

The vacuum you buy should be tailored to your needs. It should be easy to use for every task you need to accomplish.

For example, do you need to clean multiple types of surfaces? Or maybe you need to clean cobwebs off the ceiling? If so, make sure you get something flexible enough to adapt to every surface.

It's all about making sure a vacuum does what you need it to do.

3. How Long Will it Last?

You'll be vacuuming for years to come. Why throw away your money on a vacuum you'll have to replace in 18 months? Shouldn't you have a vacuum that's covered by a great warranty? One that will clean well for years?

Make sure to ask your salesperson how well a vacuum will be cleaning in a few years. If he's not sure, maybe you're not shopping at the right place.

Ask about the warranty, too. Is one available? Does the vacuum need to be shipped somewhere just to get repaired?

If so, maybe you should reconsider your purchase. We offer a great warranty on all of our products. We keep every part you can think of right here on hand, and we service all of our vacuums on the premises. That means you have less downtime and less cost. We'll even loan you one of our own vacuums until we have yours repaired and working like new!

Try to get that kind of service from a department store.

4. Does it Make The Air in Your Home Cleaner or Dirtier?

Air quality is a major health concern, especially in homes with children or senior citizens. And your vacuum could be contributing to the problem.

Make sure to ask your salesperson - "Does the dirt stay in the machine?" Listen for an answer that includes HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arrest) filters. These filters must pass a test that certifies them to remove 99.97% of potentially hazardous particles from the air. Without HEPA filters, you can't be sure how much dust your vacuum is just blowing back out into the air you breathe.

If your salesperson doesn't talk about HEPA filters, maybe you should get a second opinion.

5. Where Should You Purchase It?

No vacuum is indestructible. Make sure to buy yours from a shop that can service it and supply it with the parts you need, even years down the road.

Upright Vacuum Cleaner or Canister Vacuum Cleaner

Posted by John Gregory on Wed, Feb 23, 2011 @ 20:02 PM

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.
