Which Vacuum Cleaner is best for me?

The most used vacuum cleaners these days are the upright and canister types.

So if you are trying to choose the best vacuum cleaner among them, you need to keep a few things in mind.

  • Budget: Don’t get lured into something that you can not afford.


  • Brand: Try and look out for brands that are trustworthy and reliable. After sales services is one of the best ways of judging which brand is actually good to buy.


  • Usage: How and where you plan to use your vacuum cleaner also helps you decide what kind is best for you. If you have a large carpeted area you may want to go for an upright vacuum cleaner and if you have a hard surface flooring and stairs to clean then a canister may be a better choice.


  • Ask people you know: It is a great idea to consult your friends before buying a vacuum cleaner. They might be able to give you the great tips on getting the best vacuum cleaner. Try and learn from their experience.


  • Conduct a survey: Before actually buying a model try and look around and see what suits your needs the most. It is a good idea to take a ‘test drive’ before buying one. Check the specifications personally. See if the height adjusts according to your comfort. You can also use the internet to compare prices and check their ratings before actually going to a shop. Try out assembling the attachments before you buy them.
