How to Choose a Great Vacuum Cleaner

One of the main tools for cleaning carpets and other flooring in your home is to use a vacuum cleaner.  In years gone by, homeowners had to use a broom and a dustpan to collect dirt and throw it away.  Vacuum cleaners have made the job much less hard work, and are more efficient at picking up dust and dirt.

A good vacuum cleaner will be powerful enough to suck up all the grime on your floors.  If you have pets which shed pet hair all over, you’ll need to look for a cleaner which advertises as being good for pet hair.  This is important for those with hair allergies – the vacuum cleaner can help reduce symptoms.

Another feature to look out for is the number of attachments it has.  It is useful to have a crevice tool to help you get into narrow spaces, an extending hose and upholstery attachments.  These will help you keep your whole house clean and dust free.

If you have stairs in your house, it might be worth looking for a ligherweight vacuum cleaner so it is easier to get up and down the stairs with it.  Some upright cleaners are difficult to manoever on the stairs, so look for a more compact cleaner.
