How to choose a vacuum cleaner (types and types)

In order to prevent allergies and diseases, it’s imperative that we keep our homes clean. But is it really that clean after sweeping and mopping every day?

In an Indian Household Dust Study conducted by Dyson and FRAC, dust mites, pollens, and other harmful allergens were found in homes that were cleaned using traditional methods. Despite their invisibility, these particles can cause allergies and other respiratory ailments.

The point is not to scrub every nook and cranny every day like Monica Geller. Cleaning your home regularly with a vacuum cleaner and traditional methods is the best way to keep it clean and dust-free. Uninitiated users may be confused by today’s abundance of vacuum cleaners. In any case, we’re here to help you understand the different types of machines and find the one that’s right for you.

Vacuum Cleaner Types

Each vacuum cleaner comes with its own set of pros and cons, and there are broadly six types available on the market today.

1. An airtight container

This type of vacuum features a variety of attachments, and is quite similar to an ‘all-purpose’ cleaner. However, because these machines are bulky, they need to be dragged wherever they are needed. Eureka Forbes – Quick Clean DX 1200W and Philips PowerPro FC9352/01 are among the products in this category.

2. A handheld device

You may want to choose these if you prefer something more portable. Their portability makes them ideal for cleaning hard-to-reach corners or car interiors, and they are relatively inexpensive. Newer models have batteries built-in instead of cords attached to the older models. This category includes products such as the Eureka Forbes Easy Clean Plus Hand-held Vacuum Cleaner and Black+Decker VH802 800-Watt vacuum cleaner.

3. Standing upright 

There has been a recent increase in the popularity of this type of vacuum cleaner in Indian homes. As they are designed to ensure maximum cleaning with minimal effort, they are best suited for houses with large floors or carpet areas. However, they aren’t very portable and do not work well under furniture or on sofas. This category includes brands such as Bissell 1047 N Air Ram.

4. An all-purpose tool 

The vacuum cleaner can be used for both wet and dry cleaning around the house or in the office. The vacuum cleaner is heavy and needs to be carried around, but the powerful suction compensates for this. Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaners, such as the Eureka Forbes DX1150-Watt and the Inalsa Micro WD10, are available in this category.

5. Make a stick

They look great, are highly portable and easy to use, and are one of the hottest trends today. Unlike bulky dust collectors, these have a motor and dust collector built into the wand itself. Various extensions are available for different cleaning purposes, and these machines can be operated with one hand. Because they are mostly powered by batteries, there are no tangled cables to deal with. The V11 Absolute Pro, V10 Absolute Pro, and the V8 Absolute+ are among Dyson’s high-end vacuum cleaners in this category.

6. The robot 

People who don’t enjoy vacuuming but still want a machine to clean their homes fall into the last category. A mobile app can instruct these machines to work automatically. Sensors are everywhere on these machines to help them move across rooms. After the preprogrammed cleaning is complete, the vacuum cleaner returns to its dock to charge before the next session. The Milagrow RoboCop 2.0, the iRobot Roomba i7+, and the Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P Black are all included in this category.
