By Nadj Villaver | Vigorbuddy.com

Shifting to vacuum cleaners from traditional sweeping is a good decision for your home. However, before buying a vacuum cleaner for your home or office, you must consider its efficiency. Before swiping your credit card or getting bills from your wallet, ask yourself these three questions to make the most value out of your money.

  • What are my cleaning requirements?

There are several common types of vacuum cleaners such as upright, canister, stick, handheld and robotic. Ask yourself first: What are your cleaning requirements? Where will you use it? Each type of vacuum cleaner has its own expertise depending on the cleaning requirement.

If you will be lifting dirt out of carpets, upright vacuums are suitable because it have wide cleaning paths and motorized, rotating brush. If you will be cleaning the stairs and reaching underneath furniture, canister vacuum works best. For minor concerns like cleaning up dry spills on a countertop, pet hair on upholstery, dust on blinds or dirt on vehicle floor mats, you can use handheld vacuum cleaners.

  • How does it filter dirt?

Vacuums have either a bin or a bag to collect the dust. Both feature have its advantage and disadvantage. Bins are messier and harder to empty while bags are more user-friendly. However, you must consider that when you empty the bags and other normal filters, dirty air may be pumped back into the home.

  • Aside from its features, are there additional attachments?

It’s given that vacuum cleaners have its individual features – from airflow, amount of suction it produces, and overall design. However, you shouldn’t set aside the attachments. For example, when you’re vacuuming pile carpets and rugs, motorized power nozzle will help. When it comes to cleaning bare floors and walls, it’s best to use the wall/floor brush.

One of the vacuum cleaners that’s out in the market is the Rainbow Cleaning System. It uses the world’s most advanced filtration system that maintains constant airflow. Unlike typical vacuum cleaners, Rainbow delivers the same powerful cleaning performance each and every time you use it with its 3-step filter process. Moreover, it is the only vacuum cleaner certified as an air purifier by the American Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) making it a proven air cleaner and asthma & allergy friendly appliance.
