Which Type of Vacuum Do You Need?

Cleaning is a science—literally. Chemistry dictates the exact ratio of cleaning solutions to use, the perfect chemical makeup of hand soaps, what types of material work well for cleaning gloves, and more. One area you might not expect to be important is the choice of vacuum for your home or business.

However, choosing the right equipment is a huge part of providing the best possible clean. After all, equipment manufacturers use science to create their products, constantly trying to “up the ante” with better solutions for consumers. Here’s what you need to know when selecting the right vacuum for your needs.

Bagged Vacuums

Upright vacuums with large bags are a traditional, old-school product. But that doesn’t mean they’re out of date. If durability is one of your top considerations, there’s no better choice than a bagged vacuum. Bags also help air quality, as they filter out particulate matter.

A good example of a bagged vacuum that’s perfect for modern businesses is the TRADITION QuietClean. It runs at the equivalent decibel level of human conversation, has a dual-speed motor for easy use, and comes with an extended life motor.

Bagless Uprights

On the other hand, some upright vacuums are bagless. Without the use of bags, these vacuums tend to be better for environmentally conscious consumers who want to cut down on waste. The use of a washable plastic container also means less money spent on bag refills.

Unfortunately, bagless vacuums aren’t as good at filtering particulates out of the air. This can make them less than ideal for areas with poor air quality.

Canister Vacuums

Canister vacuums are among the most efficient on the market, and they usually have the best suction. One example is the EXTEND Top-Hat. It comes with a range of tools to use in order to reach those difficult areas, has a large capacity canister to reduce downtime, and is perfect for multi-surface cleaning.

If there’s a downside to canister vacuums, it’s that they are far less transportable than their counterparts. If your business or home has several flights of stairs and no elevator, for example, lugging these hulking machines around can be difficult. There is a trade-off to consider here, between easy transportability and suction power.
