Upright Vacuum Cleaner

There are some areas in the house that cannot be cleaned by simply using a broom and a mop. Therefore, it is essential that you get a vacuum cleaner that would help you maintain a dust-free house. But what kind of vacuum cleaner should you use? If you would only use it on small areas like countertop or carpet stains, handheld vacuum cleaners may do the trick. However, if you would use it to clean the rest of the house, then an upright vacuum cleaner is a must have.

Getting the perfect upright vacuum cleaner is not an easy decision to make. There are several things that you must consider including the needs of the area, your needs as a user, and your budget of course. There are now hundreds of vacuums that are currently out in the market. Each has its own options features as well as advantages. Sometimes it can be very confusing and daunting just to find the right vacuum that you would use.

Many manufacturers of upright vacuum cleaners claim that their product has the same benefits like that of the popular cleaners in the market. This includes powerful suction tools, auto clean air exhaust, useful attachments, convenient features, and a lot more. Because of this, it can be difficult to determine which is just a gimmick and which product would give you the real functionality and convenience of an upright vacuum cleaner. As a matter of fact, most homeowners said that it is more difficult to choose an upright vacuum cleaner than choosing the right shoe for a special occasion.

So what are the things that you need to know before you head to the nearest appliance store and get an upright vacuum cleaner for your home? First of all you must determine the areas where you would usually use the upright vacuum cleaner. Although this is one of the most obvious factors that one must consider, you must still spend some time looking around the house so you could prioritize and determine the features that would look for in an upright vacuum cleaner. Think if you need an upholstery attachment, a floor attachment, or main bristles.

Here are some of the questions that you must ask yourself:

  • Do you have a carpeted home or only a few rooms in your home have carpets?
  • Would you use the upright vacuum cleaner for hardwood floors?
  • Do you need to use it on other parts of the house other than the floor?

There are some upright vacuum cleaners that can do two purposes. One is to take the dust from the floor and the other one is to clean the windowsills and ceiling fans as well.

If in case you or your family has special needs, like someone is allergic to dusts or fur, you must get the upright vacuum cleaner that has any of the following:

  • HEPA filter
  • Clean air exhaust
  • Attachments to remove pet hair

More often than not, when vacuum cleaners are purchased, they already have one year warranties included. However, there are some manufacturers offering as much as two year warranty for their upright vacuum cleaner.

This kind of home appliance can be really quite expensive. Start saving at least $100 up to $500 for a unit of upright vacuum cleaner. The cheapest upright vacuum cleaners would usually offer you the basic features of a vacuum cleaner. If this is the only budget you have, expect the vacuum to perform only the basic and light cleaning. However, if you would use it for all the area inside your house, you must save more and buy the more expensive upright vacuum cleaners that would give you more convenient features.
