WHICH VACCUM CLEANER IS THE BEST ACCORDING TO OUR CLEANERS?

by Julie Kempson, Jul 2020

As the saying goes, a bad workman always blames his tools – so it stands to reason that to get a decent job done of vacuuming your carpet, you need to have the right tools! With so many different vacuum cleaners on the market, we decided to quiz our cleaners to find out which vacuum cleaner is the best in their opinion. We have now come up with our top three favourites which we are going to share with you today. But before we do that, let’s look at a couple of things to bear in mind.

First up – bag or bagless, that is the question!

BAG VACUUMS

A bag vacuum has a dust-bag inside the main compartment in which to store the dust, dirt, hair, and everything else that might get picked up as your cleaner uses it.

The advantage of this is that these bags can either be emptied and put back in place, or disposed of entirely and replaced with another bag. The airtight bag in which the dust and dirt is stored makes them a more hygienic choice coupled with the fact that the bags are easy to dispose of – avoiding spillages over your freshly vacuumed carpet!

Disadvantages with this type of vacuum is that the purchasing of new replacement bags on a frequent basis can prove costly and our cleaners have also said that as the bags fill up the suction power of the vacuum decreases and only increases once the bag has been changed.

BAGLESS VACUUMS

A bagless vacuum operate either by having a filter within the dust canister to trap any dust, hair and dirt or by using what is known as a “cyclonic action” to seperate the dust from the air and trap it inside the canister.

The obvious advantage to a bagless vacuum is that you don’t need to buy any bags for it! In addition, our cleaners can easily see when the canister is full and needs emptying along with being able keep an eye on exactly what is being sucked up!

Among the disadvantages of a bagless vacuum is that they can be costly to repair should the filter break or get damaged and they are very messy when it comes to emptying out the canister.

Secondly, let’s look at upright and cyclinder vacuums.

UPRIGHT VACUUMS

These seem to be the most popular choice as they are are easy to use and take up less storage space. However they do tend to be heavier to carry and are often more expensive to buy.

CYLINDER VACUUMS

Cylinder vacuums are cheaper to buy and much lighter making them far more easier to handle for jobs such as cleaning stairs and up holstery.

The final thing to think about when trying to work out which vacuum cleaner is best is the never ended debate between cordless and non cordless vacuums

CORDLESS VACUUMS

Our cleaners love the versatility of the cordless vacuum as there are no restrictions as to how far it will reach and they don’t have to constantly be searching the clients house for plug sockets.

However the main disadvantage is that they never have enough charge! Even if the client has charged the vacuum overnight, it will often run out of charge before the job is completed and the cleaner often does not have time to hang around waiting for it to charge up again.

NON CORDLESS VACUUMS

Less versatile than the cordless – however has the advantage of never running out of charge, allowing our cleaners to complete all of the vacuuming in their allocated time. The main disadvantage is the constant search for plug sockets and the restriction of the length of the cord.
