Choosing the right machine for your home can be a trying all day event with all the options available on the market. Some vacuums offer more than others and then there is a choice of canister or upright.
What does determine a vacuums effectiveness? Is it the motor or how about the type suction the vacuum offers? As with any other product we buy, of course, the design says it all when it comes to cleaning pet hair.
What makes that one so unique?
When shopping for a vacuum, it is important that you keep a few important things in mind before making your decision. What one may consider a machine to be “the best” may not be best for you.
For example, you are in need of a vacuum due to pet hair, so it would only make sense that you stick to shopping the vacuums designed for cleaning pet hair.
With this being said, you will want to keep these two words in mind, upright and canister. Once you cross this bridge, the rest is pretty simple.
Canister or Upright?
This design is typically more flexible than the upright, making it easier to move around. However, the cleaning performance runs equally amongst the two designs.
Making the decision between the two designs should be the one that fits your needs the best. Think about your living space and dynamics when deciding between the two.
Keep in mind, hair gets in even the smallest of areas. If you only have access to an upright, you may be leaving behind several fur balls.
When cleaning hair, you will need a vacuum that can move around and get under and around all those hard to reach areas. Consider this when shopping.
To be Bagless or Not?
Just another complication added to the mix. Do I want a bag or bagless vacuum? Well, if you buy one with a bag this means all the dust and yuck will go into a bag that you will need to purchase separately from the machine.
By going bagless, you save money along with the fact that all you have to do is empty the cup that fills with dirt and grime and start over. Pretty simple process when you consider, as the bag begins to fill, the vacuum will begin to have poor suction as well as blowing dust particles back into the air when too full.
The conclusion leaves the competition in the dust
All in all, the type of machine does have an effect on its ability to clean. Each model provides a potential owner with a variety of positive additions as well as useless qualities the owner may never use.
Depending on what it is, you, as a homeowner requires and to what level of hair invasion we are talking here. If you have multiple pets, then the wise choice would be a more powerful suction.
If you have one kitten then, you may want to consider a handheld to start off with in the beginning. Bottom line, go with what fits your home requirements and not what has the label, “The best”.
