We’re here to take the hassle out of your choice and it’s not always about the price, which is important, but not the only part of investing in your new vacuum cleaner. By answering these few simple questions we can point you in the right direction.

What type of floors will you be vacuuming?  carpet, hardwood, tiles, rugs or upholstery?

There are vacuum cleaners designed for carpets, or others that work better on tiles or wooden floorboards.  Vacuums are also designed to clean combination floors.

Do you have pets that shed hair?

Vacuum cleaners often don’t pick up all the fur and hair your pets leave behind, so its very important to have the right suction power. Many vacuums claim to get rid of pet hair, there are a few vacuums that completely remove pet hair.

Do you have allergies?

Dust allergies are the number one type of allergic reaction caused by vacuum cleaners. Your vacuum needs to completely remove rather than spread dust from its outlet.

How will you store the vacuum cleaner?

The size and bulk of some vacuums can be a deal breaker. Many vacuum cleaning options are bulky and require large spaces or have extra parts, this is important to consider if you live in a condo or apartment and have limited space available to store your new vacuum cleaner.
