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.

  • I have been using Gary and the guys at Advanced Carpet Cleaning for over 20 years now and just wanted to say Thanks so much for a fantastic job once again! I had a couple of spills this time that I never thought would come out. Of course, Gary got them out and the carpets look great! Gary and his team are friendly, efficient and always do a wonderful job! I would highly recommend them!

    GREAT job your men did on cleaning our carpet last week! This was the first time I tried your company and I was thoroughly impressed. Your men came in and asked if there were any stains that they needed to pre-treat. They gave special attention to those areas, getting them to look just like new!I had a very positive customer experience with Advanced Carpet Care. I found them to be customer friendly and enjoyable to work with. They were flexible and accommodating to my schedule and willing to move most items to clean under furniture.Thank you!

    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.

    My wife and I bought a house that smelled like dog, the previous owner had 3 dogs that must have spent all of their time in the living room. I was worried that we'd have to replace the carpet but Advanced Carpet Care was able to get the dog smell out 100%. We couldn't be more happy, very pleased.
