Maintaining a clean home can be a daunting task. Add kids, pets and spouses to the mix, and it seems insurmountable. Choosing the right vacuum cleaner will ensure cleaning takes the minimal amount of time and is relatively painless, allowing you to clean more frequently, but spend much less time doing it.
People tend to dread cleaning and put it off for months. This results in an entire day or weekend spent cleaning every couple of months, with your house looking like a mess in between the infrequent cleans. What if you had the perfect vacuum with the right accessories, and you could clean your house in an hour or two each week and have a clean home all the time? Would that motivate you to clean more frequently?
First, you need to find a vacuum that is easy to move. If the vacuum is heavy and clunky, you will spend half of your time trying to move it around the house. If your apartment or house has multiple levels, you must have a vacuum that you can carry up and down the stairs with minimal effort. It is often good to either go to a store to see and feel the vacuum, read reviews online or use a friend’s vacuum — what friend would pass up the opportunity to have you come over and vacuum her house? When reading reviews, pay attention to comments on the maneuverability of the vacuum and ease of use. Additionally, make sure the cord for the vacuum is long enough to reach the electrical plugs in your house Best vacuum for Stairs.
Accessories are extremely important. Walk around your house and take an inventory of the toughest places to vacuum and or clean. Is it the ceiling fan, the blinds on your upstairs windows, underneath the couch? I recommend writing all these challenging cleaning places in your house down on a piece of paper, and then looking at the accessories that come with each vacuum. If you feel the accessories of a particular vacuum will reach those hard to get to places, then you are more than half way to owning the perfect vacuum for your house!
Finally, after you have found three to five vacuums that are easy to haul around your house and have the proper accessories, read reviews on how well they clean and their durability. Major brand name vacuums should all clean reasonably well, but some vacuums will undoubtedly clean better. Pay attention to how well they clean on different surfaces such as wood floors versus carpets and factor that into your decision. A vacuum that gets glowing reviews for cleaning the wood floor isn’t relevant to you if you only have carpet.
Finding the perfect vacuum is a subjective endeavor and depends on what you are trying to clean. By narrowing down your vacuum choices to a vacuum that is easy to carry around the house and has the proper accessories, you are eighty percent of the way to finding the perfect vacuum for you.
