    The Essential Vacuum Cleaner

    The vacuum cleaner is a truly amazing piece of
    equipment, as it would be very hard to cope without
    one.  There are many people out there who prefer
    domestic vacuum cleaners for carpeted floors in
    their home.

    No matter how you look at it, the vacuum cleaner is
    an ingenious piece of equipment.  It has an air
    pump that creates a partial vacuum to suck up the
    dust and dirt, which it collects by a filtering
    system or a cyclone to dispose of later.

    Vacuum cleaner types
    Based on their configurations, there are many types
    of vacuum cleans.  The following are some of the
    most known types of vacuum cleaners.

    Bagless vacuum cleaners, as the name implies, don't
    use bags.  They collect the dust in a compartment
    which you can quickly and easily empty.  This will
    save you from the headache of dealing with messy
    and frustrating vacuum bags.

    Upright vacuum cleaners have the pump mounted
    directly above the suction intake, with the bag
    mounted on the handle that will normally rise to
    waist height.  The designs of upright vacuum cleaners
    will normally employ mechanical beaters, which
    are often rotating brushes, to help dust that has
    yet to settle be vacuumed up.  An attached belt to
    the vacuum motor will drive these beaters.

    Canister types
    Canister vacuum cleaners have the motor and the
    bag in a separate cylinder unit that is connected
    to the vacuum head by a long flexible hose. Even
    though the upright units have been tested as being
    more effective, the lighter and more maneuverable
    heads of the canister are also popular.  There are
    some canister models on the market that feature
    power heads which contain the same type of beaters
    as found with upright units, even though those
    types of beaters are driven by a seperate electric

    Backpack vacuums are a great tool for commercial
    type cleaning.  Backpack vacuums will allow you to
    move around rapidly in a large area.  It is
    basically a canister vacuum cleaner, except for the
    fact that the straps are used to carry the canister
    unit on your back.

    Central vacuum
    A central or built in vacuum cleaner has the suction
    motor and bag based in a central location of the
    building, providing vacuum inlets at strategic
    places throughout the building.  This way, you only
    need to carry the hose and pickup head from room
    to room.  The hose is normally 25 foot long,
    allowing a large range of movement without having
    to change vacuum inlets.

    A plastic pipe will connect the vacuum outlets to
    the central unit.  The head of the vacuum may
    either by un-powered or have beaters that are operated
    by an air driven or electric motor.  The dirt bags
    in central systems are so big that you only need
    to change or empty them once or twice a year.

    Robot type vacuum cleaners will move around your
    home, cleaning as they wish.  They are compact and
    powered by batteries.

    Hand held
    Hand held vacuum cleaners are very small and powered
    by either batteries or electricity, and very popular
    with cleaning up small spills.

    Wet or dry vacs
    Wet or dry vacuum systems can be used to clean up
    both wet and dry spills and dirt.

    Vacuums are very helpful with protecting yourself
    and your family from dust particles.  They are also
    helpful for those who suffer from allergies that
    result from dirt and dust.  Before you buy a vacuum
    cleaner, you should always read some reviews and
    find out other information to ensure that the vacuum
    cleaner you buy will meet your needs.
