Both upright and canister offer choices to pick from. Practically, the decision of which model to pick will lie on consumer priority and preferences. However still many of them look for a buying guide to help them in buying decision making process. We have developed this buying guide to help those potential buyers arrive at a quick purchasing decision.

Product features vary by models and one particular model may not offer all the benefits buyers are looking for in a vacuum. It means as a buyer you need to prioritize to make a smart purchase. Each potential buyer may have his or her special requirements but in general they need to consider a few important factors before they make a purchasing decision. You may find the following considerations useful when purchasing a vacuum.


Things to consider

• How much is the price at the time of purchase?
• Are the replaceable parts available? If available, are replacements way too expensive?

Height, weight and comfortability:
• Is the weight of the model falls within the maximum limit that you can handle?
• Does it suit your ability to carry and offers a comfortable grip?
• Does it have the ideal height to suit you or is the height adjustable?

Does it offer a warranty? Is it fragile [Try to find out from user reviews if the device is fragile]

Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology:
In case you are allergic to dust, does it have Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology combined with superior HEPA filtration to capture and hold over 99.9% of dust and allergens inside the vacuum to protect users from breathing in air full of dust and dirt?

Corded or cordless:
If you need to re-plug your vacuum cleaner as you move around from rooms to stairs to driveway of your big house, then it is surely a hassle carrying a heavy vacuum anytime you want to clean certain areas around the home. In such conditions, a cordless vacuum will offer portability and flexibility.

However, for a cordless hand vacuum, there is often a loss of suction power over the period in which the vacuum is being used.

So check whether the model uses a high voltage Lithium Ion battery to hold a better charge and give a longer and more consistent suction power performance.

Suction power:
One of the most important factors you must consider when choosing a vacuum is the suction power of the device. Does it give more suction power to translate to a greater cleaning ability? Check it out.

If you are looking for an all purpose model, then you need to look out for the one that gently cares for all flooring type. Does the model you are considering allow you to clean from smooth, solid surfaces like tiles and hardwoods to plush rugs and deep-pile carpeting?

Is it easy to maneuver under and around furniture?

If you have a huge floor, is the cord long enough to cover a wider area or you need to frequently re-plug?

Convenience of storage:
Many consumers have a small house and do not have enough space to store. Is the model you are considering to purchase compact and slim enough to be stored easily?
