A Quick Guide To Vacuum Pumpsvacmaster
Vacuum pumps come in a range of sizes and functionalities and are used in a wide range of commercial, industrial and personal applications. They are one of the most vital components in your vacuum and different styles are better suited to different jobs. Below are a list and explanation of some of the common vacuums which use different styles of pump.
Upright vacuums are without a doubt the most common style of vacuums found in most homes today. They typically come with a foot lever that you can press to adjust the angle of the machine and are a great option if you don’t want to (or can’t) bend over while vacuuming.
Canister models are also quite popular and provide some additional manoeuvrability with the separate canister that you can lift up and take around the house with you. They are the best option for working on stairs because of their mobility and extendable wand. They are lighter than uprights, but still generally weigh around 8 pounds.
These vacuums may seem like a novelty, but they actually do quite a good job of keeping floors and carpets clean. They are battery powered, with a docking station for recharging, they are sensor-controlled and cordless so they are actually quite inconspicuous while they are cleaning. They typically weigh under 10 pounds and are a great way to supplement manual vacuuming in between regular, more through cleans with an upright or a canister vacuum.
The mini-vacuums are great for smaller jobs or when you need to get at an area that is hard to reach with a bigger, more cumbersome canister or upright vacuum. Many of them are cordless and come with recharging stations. They are portable and a favourite for people with Recreational Vehicles or home workshops.
The stick vacuum is very similar to the upright but without any of the attachments or accessories. It’s the most minimalist vacuum design on the market and therefore the easiest to store and weighs much less. They are often cordless or battery powered and are capable of effectively transferring from carpet to hardwood.
Different vacuums work better for different jobs. Sometimes you need something that is capable of an intense power clean with a more powerful pump and larger storage space for debris that you pick up. Other times something smaller and more portable is desirable for quicker cleanups or, in the case of robotic vacuums, cleanups that you don’t have to actively take part in.
If you have a job and you don’t know which vacuum best suits your purposes, consider the above five options and make the most informed choice possible.
