Filtration: When a vacuum sucks up dirt some particles are expelled out the exhaust of the vacuum. The type of filter determines the size and number of particles that are expelled. There are now three types of filters on offer. Standard filtration is now usually found in only low cost vacuum cleaners. If you buy a vacuum cleaner with standard filtration, make sure you look for one with more than one filtration level. S-class and HEPA filters greatly reduce the number and size of particles that are emitted back into the air. These types of filter retain up to 99.97% of dust, down to 0.3 microns (microscopic in size). Allergy sufferers should only consider using HEPA filters. There are now many top rated HEPA vacuum cleaners, the Eureka 3684D canister vacuum being one of the best.
Power: A vacuum cleaner with powerful suction can depend on many things but the wattage of the motor is a very good indicator of its power. The more Watts a vacuum has, the more powerful it is. A good figure for a cylinder cleaner is around 1400 Watts, and 1300 for an upright.
Steam vacuum cleaners use steam to lift out dirt from carpets. These are very effective in getting out ground in dirt. They are not that difficult to use and a good quality steam vacuum like the Hoover SteamVac should leave the carpet dry to the touch after use. Finally, Wet and Dry vacuum cleaners are versatile units. They can be used in dry mode exactly like their more common counterparts. But they can also be used to clean your carpet with water and carpet shampoo, leaving your carpet clean and sweet smelling. The Eureka InstaRinse Cleaning System is an excellent wet to dry vacuum.
Bag or Bagless: This seems to be the latest, and most confusing, feature on many vacuum cleaners. Until recently, all vacuum cleaners collected dirt in a bag. However, this changed when Dyson vacuum cleaners came on to the market. The main disadvantage with vacuums that use bags is loss of suction as the bag fills up. A bagless vacuum like the Dyson DC07 upright vacuum cleaner does not use dust bags but induces suction by means of centrifugal force. Vacuums that don`t use bags don`t loose suction power. Bagless vacuum cleaners tend to be more expensive that ones that use bags. Another disadvantage of bagless vacuum cleaners is empty the dust cup. Bagged models can be more hygienic because the dirt and dust is collected in a sealed bag. If you or anyone in your house is asthmatic then it is better to go for a bagged cleaner.
