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.

  • 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!

    My first experience with Advanced Carpet Care was in my own home. To say I was impressed with their quality of service would be an understatement. Their technicians far exceeded expectations. It was more than evident that every piece of furniture was moved to ensure a thorough cleaning of every inch of carpet in my home. When it became necessary to clean the carpets in one of our large facilities, I was thrilled to learn that Advanced Carpet Care had been awarded the job. Once again, they knocked the ball out of the park. They completed the job in a single night and were able to remove all the soiled spots in the building. Their customer service team demonstrated a high level of professionalism and friendliness and has become one of our preferred vendors. Great work Advanced Carpet Care!

  • Don't have them do your grout. They didn't go against the wall or any edge. While they were here I was going over spots that they missed.

    Gary and his cleaning partner did an outstanding job deep cleaning our entire house. They were prompt, wore masks inside our home and worked very quickly and efficiently for almost 2 hours. Both gentlemen were engaging, polite and very professional. Our carpets look brand new! My husband and I are very pleased with the job that Advanced Carpet Care did and would highly recommend this service to anyone that needs their carpets cleaned!
