Which vacuums are there?
Nơadays, there are many different vacuum cleaners on the market. The main models are:
- Steel Vacuum / 2-in-1 (stem) vacuum cleaners
- Boiler model
- Robot vacuum cleaner
- Canister vacuum cleaner
- Upright vacuum cleaners
Cylinder vacuum cleaner
This is the most well-known type. This model is easy to put behind you and is low to the ground. In a
vacuum cleaner, you can opt for a permanent dust container or bag. Besides the usual vacuum cleaner,
there is also the water vacuum. This is specially designed for the extraction of large quantities of water
and can suck up dust.
Upright vacuum cleaners
A cleaner is an elongated model and the dust container is situated on the stem. Former upright vacuums
were very heavy and had a fabric collection bag to the stem. Some brands such as AEG-Electrolux and
Miele combine two devices in their upright vacuums. The handheld vacuum cleaner is for small surfaces
and for the floor.
These models are often 2-in-1 (stem). The integrated pilferer is removed with a click system of the
Robot vacuum cleaner
This model vacuum cleaner is equipped with a sensor. A robot vacuum cleaner can be programmed to
clean your house dust and debris while you go do something else. Robot cleaners are rechargeable via a
charging station. This way they can easily clean the room without cord.
Cordless vacuum cleaners
There are also different types of vacuum cleaners that can be used cordless after charging. A cordless
vacuum cleaner is especially useful for vacuuming places where no power outlet is available.
Everything about suction and power
The power of the motor (motor wattage) has a large effect on the
suction force, but is not the same as suction. The suction is namely the force with which the machine
sucks air. The engine power is the wattage consumed by the engine to supply the suction.
Range and cord length of a vacuum cleaner
The maximum length between the outlet and the nozzle is called range and should not be confused with
the cord length. Therefore, the radius is always greater than the cord length.
Bagless vacuum cleaner or vacuum cleaner with bag?
When buying a vacuum cleaner you can choose from two types of dust collecting. The well-known is
vacuum cleaner with bag or dust container. In the majority of vacuum cleaners dust is collected in a
A dust container is removable, so you can empty it at any time. This type of dust collection can rinse
with soapy water. This causes less unpleasant odors.
Power control of vacuum cleaner
The suction force can be controlled in various ways. Automatic, electronic or mechanical. Do you have
smooth flooring such as laminate, sail or tiling plus carpet? It is convenient if you buy a vacuum cleaner
with electronic power control. You apply the suction then easily by means of a slider or knob on the
vacuum cleaner. A vacuum cleaner with a mechanical suction power control only in with a slider in the
Telescopic tube or other tube system?
A telescopic tube is height adjustable and thus easy to adjust to your height. A two-part suction pipe has
a fixed length, and is thus not adjustable. A two-piece telescoping suction tube is adjustable in length,
and a three-part telescopic tube is also adjustable in length as well as extra long. With the S-shaped
suction tube can, without bending, suck easily under low furniture.
H.E.P.A. filter, or more simply HEPA filter, stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air. This is one of the
best filters which is available. The HEPA filter filters out microscopic particles from the air that cause
respiratory allergies and captures this. The fabric tape may cause nuisance odors when vacuuming. A
layer of active carbon in the filter cassette can prevent this. By such a film be completely absorbed all
