Start by finding out the right vacuum for the sort of cleaning you are doing. If you have a wall-to-wall carpet or loads of rugs, the best option is for uprights – particularly those with a pack. Although if you have more steps, canisters can be harder to navigate, so they appear to perform better on hard-faced surfaces, from hardwood to tile. Stick vacs and portable versions are useful for lighter activities that require immediate treatment, such as spilled rice. If you want to set it and forget it, a robotic vacuum can appeal — although you’ll need to remember to regularly empty the dust bin.
If you’re tempted to buy a model with the highest amps, horsepower or watts, you might want to think again. These numbers are simply measurements of the electrical current used by the motor. A vacuum cleaner’s performance depends on airflow, the amount of suction it produces, and other factors including the overall design and attachments. You can use motorized control nozzle when vacuuming pile carpets and rugs. Yet it’s safer to use the wall / floor brush while you’re brushing flat floors and walls. Seek the crevice device to remove dust from drawers, heating and air-conditioning pipes, and from beneath bigger appliances. The upholstery device is used for mattresses, upholstered sheets, curtains, and vehicle interiors. And the dusting tool is used to clear dust from blinds, lampshades, and moldings.
In an ideal world, an area that has heavy traffic should be vacuumed every day. But once or twice a week is more realistic with today’s busy lifestyles and certainly enough for areas that aren’t often used. For best results, slowly move the vacuum over the carpet several times, going back and forth and side to side in parallel rows.

Many of the leaves are flattened and pushed onto the rug field in our entrance owing to the heavy foot traffic. The vacuum did an outstanding job by extracting all the dirt and clutter from the rug — and with only one move, it swept up much of the dust.

Hoover Windtunnel Max Capacity Upright Vacuum Cleaner with HEPA Media Filtration, UH71100, Red
Hoover started in the early 1900’s in the USA. While popular in the US, the vacuums were even more popular in the UK and Ireland – so much so that in the UK a vacuum cleaner is still known colloquially as a Hoover. Hoover manufacture a wide array of home cleaning machine including both bagged and bagless uprights and canisters, as well as stick vacs, handhelds, carpet cleaners and hard floor cleaners. There are a huge number of different machines and models and costs tend to be about average.
This is a fairly priced upright bagless vacuum cleaner, and it is efficient enough. Pet owners say cleaning up all kinds of pet fur on all carpet and polished flooring doing a fantastic job. It comes with a handheld pet turbo device which works well, too. The UH74110 is, on the other side, big, compact and not quick to control – it really doesn’t move very well. It’s also a little rough and it’s hard to extend the hose, which reduces cleaning distance.
Consumers say it has enormous suction and it cleans well the bare floors and the fabric. It even excels in digging up pet fur out of tapestry and fabric. Additionally, because of a long power cord and stretch hose it has an incredibly long cleaning distance. However, the vacuum is heavy, hard to maneuver, and can be difficult to push or pull on carpet. It also includes a host of tools and the swivel nozzle is remarkably maneuverable. However it is a hefty machine and quite a few owners report having issues with the vacuum weight. The Air Lift canister itself is also on the heavy side but it is a great feature for cleaning stairs and getting into hard to reach areas. However, suction by many accounts, is mediocre and the vacuum has no high power mode for dealing with tougher cleaning jobs. It also has two power modes, three tools, and easily accessible controls. However, it is a little on the loud side and some owners report that it feels a bit top heavy. In addition, it is best for light cleaning and is not really designed for heavy duty work. This modern looking Hoover upright is very maneuverable and lightweight. It is also bagless and has cleanable filters.
