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 recently contacted Gary at Advanced Carpet Cleaning to get my living room and hallway cleaned before putting the house up for sale. Gary was excellent to deal with and the crew that came to my house was very respectful professional. The carpets look great and I was very impressed with the level of professionalism by the company. Appointment time was made with ease and the communication before and after was great. I received a follow-up phone call from Gary on a Saturday checking to see how the service was. I will definitely be using this service in the future and recommend them to anyone looking for service!!

    I can't recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 workers, which really speeds things up. They also helped move all my furniture out of the way so they could clean as much carpet as possible. I typically see carpet cleaners just go around obstacles, but these guys actually move stuff so they can be very thorough. After they left, the carpet looked like new and smelled fresh. We've been putting off a carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys can use non-toxic solutions and still leave you with really clean carpet. If you need a little more cleaning power, they can use a mild detergent that is still very earth-friendly. Lastly, they are a local business, and I prefer giving my money to the smaller, service-minded businesses over a huge corporation.

    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!
