Turning on your vacuum only to have it do nothing or worse, blow out dusty air means one thing: it's time for you to buy a new one. But with so many different types of vacuums out there you may not know which one is right for you, your house, and your needs.
1. Cordless Vacuum
If you have a large house with a lot of different rooms in it, then the last thing you will want to do is have to unplug your vacuum every time you enter in a new room or about every ten feet. When you have a cordless vacuum, however, you can carry it with you all around your house so that you don't have to worry about any of that. With a cordless vacuum, you simply charge your vacuum on a wall charge in between every use. Depending on the type of battery, you have it will determine just how long it lasts for.
2. Handheld Vacuum
If you feel like one of your main concerns is having to pick up crumbs off of your furniture or stairs then getting a handheld vacuum may be your go-to option. A handheld vacuum is a small vacuum that is extremely lightweight and that you can hold just with one hand. Depending on the type of handheld vacuum that you get, it may or may not be cordless. If you can, try to find one that's cordless because it will save you a lot of time and hassle.
3. Pet Vacuum
If you have a pet (specifically a dog), then chances are that you are always trying to vacuum up all of the pet fur and hair that's everywhere. The tricky thing about using a regular vacuum for this is that it can be hard to suction everything up and get it off of your furniture and your rugs. When you get a pet vacuum, however, it's designed to scoop up dog fur from virtually every part of your house including your rugs, carpets, couch, and other pieces of furniture. Plus, they typically have more bristles to really get everything as clean as possible.
You shouldn't have to buy a new vacuum for several years (if not longer). To ensure that you get a vacuum that meets all of your needs, make sure that you keep all of these options in mind. To learn more, reach out to vacuum stores like Albert Lee Appliance.
