• Choosing The Right Vacuum Cleaner

    Choosing The Right Vacuum Cleaner

    As history indicates, the first model vacuum cleaner
    wasn't even a vacuum cleaner at all, more of a carpet
    sweeper.  This was invented by a man named Daniel
    Hess, who in 1860 patented a machine that featured
    rotating brushes on the bottom and bellows that
    helped to create suction.

    However, there is no evidence that this very machine
    was ever produced. Some 40 years or so later, in
    1908, James Spangler of Canton, Ohio received a
    patent for the very first portable electric vacuum
    cleaner.  It was in fact his cousin in law, William
    Hoover, who lent his name to the legendary company
    that produces quality vacuum cleaners even today.

    For more than 150 years, the vacuum cleaner has
    been improved upon greatly.  From doing your weekly
    vacuuming of your home, doing a spring cleaning,
    or simply leaving the vacuuming up to the robot,
    there is a vacuum out there suited to your needs.
    With upright, canister, HEPA filtered, bagged and
    bagless, there is always a vacuum cleaner for your
    needs on the market.

    There are actually 2 ways in which a vacuum cleaner
    cleans.  The first, and the way we rate a vacuum
    on most is how debris and dirt is picked up off
    of a carpet and the floor.  When you are searching
    for a vacuum, keep in mind the power of the
    suction motor, as this is very important for getting
    good performance.

    The second reason, one that isn't often thought
    about, is how well the vacuum filters the air and
    puts it back into the home.  Those with allergy
    problems will find a HEPA vacuum to be the best
    choice.  There are some models of HEPA vacuums
    that can filter out 99% of pollens, dust, and
    other common household allergens.

    There is also the choice of canister or upright
    vacuum, as this is more or less based on personal
    preference.  Both vacuum types have their pros and
    cons.  The heads of canister vacuums are able to
    reach under your furniture, also making it easier
    to vacuum the stairs as well.

    Canister vacuums on the other hand have a retractable
    electric cord, which is much more convenient than
    wrapping the cord back around the neck of the
    vacuum.  It is often times easier to push the light
    weight canister vacuum head as opposed to pushing
    a canister style vacuum.

    When you choose your vacuum cleaner, keep in mind
    what you plan to vacuum.  There are several designs
    and types intended for different uses.  If you have
    hardwood floors, you obviously wouldn't want to
    use a carpet vacuum.

    The little things such as this will be a huge factor
    in selecting your vacuum cleaner.  If you play
    your cards right, you'll have the perfect vacuum
    cleaner for your home - and other areas as well.
