The Challenger…Canister Vacuums – Buying a Vacuum Cleaner Guide – Part 4

Only since a few years ago, upright vacuums were the recommended option for carpet, rugs and bare floors. Both upright and canister vacuums are now trying to bridge the gap. The upright vacuum is coming out with with small hoses and canister vacuums are geared up with mechanized brush accessories. Which one is better?

Where Upright Vacuums Excel

Getting an upright vacuum might be the best choice if your house has mainly surfaces of carpet or rugs, specifically thick ones. The turning brushes of the upright vacuum are much better at removing the dirt from thick rugs than canister vacuums.

Average Housing

For average housing, the cylinder vacuum has a clear advantage over the upright vacuum cleaner. Much more powerful, quiet, and less complicated to deal with, a cylinder vacuum cleans up faster and also with less annoyances.

Bare Floors?

If your home has mainly bare floors (ceramic tiles or wood), a mix of bare flooring as well as of carpet, or if you have a two-story residence, a canister vacuum would certainly be a better financial investment.

Ultimately, it is a matter of personal preference: some individuals are a lot more comfortable pushing an upright in front of them, others favor the ability to move a light weight wand.

  • We are so pleased with the service that we received from Advanced Carpet Cleaning. Our carpets look amazing and the gentlemen providing the service were very kind and professional. They were able to remove all stains and carefully moved furniture when needed. Their level of customer service was outstanding!

    Very pleased with the work done by Gary and his team! We had the carpet in our new home cleaned prior to move in. They were able to come out the same day I called, and they did a wonderful job on our carpet. Since the previous owners had pets, we wanted to be sure there were no lingering issues or odors before moving in with our own pets. They were so courteous and the carpets look so much better! The impressions from furniture are barely visible any longer, and they pulled a lot of pet hair out of the carpet with the cleaning that remained despite my vacuuming. We would not hesitate to use this company again for any cleaning services they offer.

    Very professional, thorough, and courteous. This is the ONLY company we utilize when we have any flooring or furniture cleaning needs. They do an exceptional job and are very cautious while doing their work to take care of and be cautious of the surroundings while doing so. Not just rush in and out and throw a bill at you. Highly recommended.
