Vacuum cleaners have gone a long way since the days when mum’s upright vacuum with its huge bag reigned supreme. An appealing range of designs and brands are available, which allow you to pick the best vacuum for your lifestyle.Handhelds
Handheld vacuum cleaners are versatile, portable, and can reach high places. Many have replaceable heads for particular surfaces like carpets or ceiling corners. Newer handheld designs do away with the gigantic bag in favor of canisters, while others ditch the power cord for batteries that allow for excellent portability. Ones like the Dyson V6 are cordless, lightweight, and versatile, making it a modern homeowner’s buddy. These also fit in the broom closet nicely because of their slim, portable designs.Robotic Vacuums
Robots are taking over our homes one step at a time, and in terms of cleaning, the advent of the iRobot Roomba paved the way for robotic home domination. These robotic vacuums have a dock they always come home to for a charge. Some models have collision and edge detection, while others use laser distance sensors. Pet owners appreciate this automation technology since it saves them from constantly cleaning out pet hair from the floor or carpet.Heavy Duty Vacuums
Housekeeping is easy for portable vacuums or robotic ones, but cleaning up after a long day in the garage or workshop is much too heavy for them. Models from Shop-Vac offer a heavy-duty lineup of powerful vacuum cleaners that will make quick work of sawdust, spills, and other heavy, small solid objects. Many of these have sturdy wheels that easily roll on the garage or workshop floor and always feature a sturdy carry handle for moving it easily around the house. Capacity ranges from 4 to 20 gallons, so there’s always a heavy-duty vacuum that meets a greasemonkey or woodworker’s cleaning needs.Go Mini
Between handheld and robotic vacuums is the mini rechargeable vacuum cleaner. Ideal for studio apartments, small hotel rooms, or as a personal vacuum cleaner just for your room, it’s got portability and power to meet the cleaning needs of a small space.
