Frequently Asked Questions
Is an expensive vacuum worth it?
Not all expensive vacuums are built and designed to be worth their price. However, most expensive vacuums tend to be built with quality parts and features that allow you to deeply clean a variety of surfaces.
On the other hand, some inexpensive vacuums work better than others that cost more. We recommend reading in-depth reviews on the types of cleaners you are looking to buy before you make the final transaction. This will ensure you know the good and the bad of each cleaner and if it matches your wants and needs.
What should I look for when buying a vacuum cleaner?
When buying a vacuum cleaner, you should look for these 3 things:
- Features: Does the cleaner work well for deep carpet cleaning? Or does it work better for hard floors?
- What others say: Before purchasing a cleaner, make sure it can accomplish what you need to do (clean carpets, remove stains). Well-known cleaners will usually have many positive and negative reviews, but we recommend using an unbiased and reliable source.
- Price: Sometimes, vacuum cleaners can be priced at a higher amount than what they’re actually worth. This is easy to notice if a cleaner doesn’t have great ratings while being priced way over your budget. However, for the most part, vacuums are priced fairly based on their quality, design, and features.
Should you buy a used vacuum?
Used vacuums usually mean they’re not new. They tend to either have missing pieces or not work as well as they should. However, some can already be lightly used and still clean just as well as a brand new vacuum. It’s your choice if you would be fine with using a used vacuum, but just beware of the risks.
Are pet vacuums worth it?
Yes, pet vacuums are worth it. They usually have special features that help remove pet hair, dust, and allergens from carpets and floors. Most pet vacuums thoroughly clean and reduce allergens with their HEPA filtration system.
Which is better upright or canister vacuum?
Canister vacuums tend to be more powerful than upright vacuums because they don’t have a limitation to their engine size. Usually, they have better suction while being much easier to carry and hold to clean high areas. Upright vacuums also have their benefits, but if you’re looking to buy a very lightweight and easy to carry vacuum, then the canister will be your best bet.
