What to look for in a barrel vacuum
Barrel and upright vacuum cleaners are still the most popular vacuum types, thanks to their ability to thoroughly clean floors and carpets.
But before you buy a barrel vacuum, here's some important factors to consider:
- Capacity: barrel vacuums generally have a dust tank capacity of between 2L and 5L. If you have a large home and don't want to empty the vacuum during use, a larger dust tank may work better for you.
- Bag vs bagless: these days, most barrel vacuums are bagless. While bagless models can be a bit messy to empty, the convenience and cost-effectiveness of not having to buy vacuum bags can be compelling.
- Cost: barrel vacuum prices can range from less than $100 to well over $2,000. The mid-range models tend to best combine value for money with performance.
What other vacuums are available at Harris Scarfe?
Stick vacuums are growing more popular, thanks to their sleek good looks and tiny footprint. They're perfect for small apartments, but you only get 20-30 minutes of battery life from most models, so they may not work as well for larger homes.
Handheld vacuums are ideal for those hard-to-reach corners, as well as sofas and car interiors. However, it may be worth considering a stick vacuum since you can convert most models into handheld units.
Wet and dry vacuums
Wet and dry vacuums are typically used for industrial cleaning, but they're also great for families who want to clean both dry and liquid messes.
While they likely won't clean carpets as well as a barrel vacuum would, robot vacuums are extremely convenient. Use them to keep dust and dirt to a minimum in between deep cleans with a more powerful vacuum cleaner.
Steam mops are great for killing germs and bacteria on your floors without using harsh chemicals. Better yet, you don't have to scrub because the steam does all the hard work for you!
