According to If you’ve looked at the range and variety of vacuum cleaners available right now, you may find it a little intimidating. How do you know, out of thousands of models, which is best? To give you a hand we’ve put together a list of tips and things to consider when buying a vacuum cleaner.

Invest in the Best

The best you can afford, that is. Before you even start looking, you need to figure out what your budget is. Is there any wiggle room with it? Whatever it is, stick to it. After that, the best thing to do is to buy a vacuum cleaner that is the best one to fall within that budget.

Get the Features and Functionality You Need

There are lots of different styles of vacuum cleaners out there and many have a stunning array of features and functions. Tat doesn’t necessarily mean they will be right for you. If you’re not careful you could be spending a fortune on a piece of equipment that you will only use half the features and functions. So, figure out the things you need your vacuum cleaner to do and find the best match within your budget.

Read Customer Reviews

One of the best ways to sort the wheat from the chaff, so to speak, when choosing a vacuum cleaner is to look to reviews. Customer vacuum reviews are ideal, especially if you have a shortlist of models you are especially interested in buying. Look at the good points and bad points that have been raised, to get the clearest and fullest picture.

Consider Going Cordless

The choice of whether you should buy a cordless or corded vacuum cleaner comes down to personal preference and the size and layout of your home. If you have a small property, for instance, with only a couple of very small rooms, a cordless vacuum cleaner may have just the right amount of power per charge for you to clean all the flooring. However, if you have a larger property, you need think about how much you may be able to clean per charge. Sometimes a long cord is a better option, unless you like doing half the cleaning at one point in the day and the other half later or on a different day entirely.

Choose a Hoover With a HEPA Filter

High Efficiency Particulate Aire filters are the best way to keep the air in your home clean when you are hoovering from particles of dust, dirt and allergens being sent back into your home.
