Canister Vacuum Cleaner

A canister vacuum cleaner places the motor and the bag in a canister unit that connects to the vacuum via a hose. Nearly all canister vacuum cleaners are on wheels for easy movement and multiple attachments for cleaning furniture and other areas. While upright vacuum cleaners are actually more effective than canister vacuum cleaners, the canister models are very popular because they are lighter, can be more easily maneuvered through a room, and have different attachments. In fact, some canister vacuum cleaners have a power head attachment that contains the same type of mechanical beaters as upright vacuum cleaners, making them almost as effective as the upright versions.

Many people may wonder if they should buy an upright vacuum cleaner or a canister vacuum cleaner. The main factor is the maneuverability and weight. If you have difficulty lifting heavy objects or need a vacuum you can more easily move around large objects and such, you will want a canister vacuum cleaner. Once you’ve made that decision, it’s time to decide which type of canister vacuum cleaner.

The biggest factor in determining what kind of canister vacuum cleaner you need is what type of floor you’ll be cleaning most often. There are three different styles of canister vacuum cleaners. The first type features a hard plastic brush with soft bristles. This brush is used to clean hardwood or bare floods. It works best on smooth surfaces with no carpet, rugs, or other variable surfaces. If you’ll be cleaning rooms with many rugs or carpet, this type of canister vacuum cleaner is not what you want.

The second type of canister vacuum cleaner features a turbo brush. This brush ahs a spinning drum roller that rolls across the floor and picks up dust and dirt with bristles. Turbo brushes work well in areas that have rugs scattered around or feature carpeting. It doesn’t do quite as well in rooms that have wall to wall deep carpeting, however.

The final type of canister vacuum cleaner features a power head brush. It has a turbo brush that is powered by its own motor, giving it more power and efficiency. The power head canister vacuum cleaner can clean wall to wall carpets and is great for floors that accumulate a lot of dust or pet hair. This is the most powerful type of canister vacuum cleaner, but, as you might expect, it’s also the most expensive.

The turbo and power head brush both feature spinning rollers with bristles just like those on an upright vacuum cleaner. The power head vacuum is more powerful since its drum is driven by a separate motor. The great thing about these two types of canister vacuum cleaners is that they both come with a brush that can be used to vacuum bare floors so you don’t have to invest in a separate dust mop or hardwood floor cleaner.

All three types of canister vacuum cleaners are similar in size and have tool devices used for upholstery, dusting, and cleaning crevices, so those are not concerns when selecting a canister vacuum. There are a few other things to consider, though, including price, the cost of bags and filters, and other features like reduced noise, an adjustable wand, and a bag change indicator. Overall, however, the main deciding factor should be the type of floor you’re vacuuming most often. If you need to regularly clean carpets, you’ll want to go with the power head brush, but if you don’t need that powerful of a canister vacuum cleaner, you may not want to spend the extra money for one. All in all, check out what each type of canister vacuum can do before selecting one.
