There are a lot of different types of vacuum cleaner styles on the market today which can make shopping for a vacuum cleaner more difficult. There are at least six different styles for the homeowner to choose from. While you can use trial and error to find the best vacuum cleaner for your home, you may benefit from knowing that the best vacuum cleaner is the robot vacuum cleaner.
In the olden days there were no vacuum cleaners and the cleaning was usually done by women. They had two choices: use a broom to sweep the floors or use a cloth to wipe it down. Either way, cleaning the floors was time-consuming. With the invention of the electric vacuum cleaner in the last century, women’s chores became a lot easier. And soon men were also cleaning their homes because times had changed, and vacuuming a room was much simpler now.
Many people with larger homes will choose a built-in vacuuming system. This means they don’t have to pull a heavy vacuum around each room. All they have to do is plug in the hose to an outlet in the wall. The downside to this cleaning system is that it is costly.
The canister vacuum is long and rectangular, and has a long tube attached to a wand, with cleaning brushes at the end. In the past, these vacuum cleaners were large, bulky, and hard to pull around a room. Today, the canister-style vacuum is much lighter.
There is also the stick vacuum and the upright. They both look much the same, but the stick is a lot narrower and lighter. The stick vacuum is only used for cleaning floors, as there is no detachable wand that can be used to clean furniture.
There is also the handheld vacuum which is more suitable for fast cleanups. Many people will have one of these in their living rooms, particularly if they have young kids or pets.
The sixth type of vacuum cleaner is the robotic vacuum cleaner. These are usually square or round in shape, and look a lot like a disc. They can be preprogrammed and will vacuum an entire room for you. Many also have additional features such as the ability to return to their home unit for recharging, or to wash down floors.
Some robot vacuum cleaners have small debris canisters that actually collect the dirt inside. Some may have tanks that are filled with water and cleaning fluid for the dual purpose of vacuuming and washing the floors. Some robot vacuums have a soft microfibre cloth that you can attach to the bottom. This is where the debris will collect.
No matter which robotic vacuum cleaner you choose, it may be your best choice. If you’re like most families, your home needs to be vacuumed on a daily basis. If you have a robot vacuum cleaner, it will take this choice away from you. You’ll no longer have to dig your big bulky vacuum cleaner out of the closet, set it up, and then push it from room to room. Instead, the robot will move around on its own volition, cleaning the floor’s surfaces.
Some robotic vacuum cleaners only clean hardwood floors, while some will clean both carpets, rugs, and hardwood or hard surfaced floors. If you have carpet in your home it’s worth paying the extra cost for a robot vacuum cleaner that can clean all types of surfaces.
Many robot vacuum cleaners also have special room parameters built in. This means that you can program it to avoid the baby’s room, or the pet’s sleeping area. There may also be buttons that offer a quick room clean for those times when you are expecting company but don’t want your robot to spend an hour cleaning.
You can save a lot of time if you purchase a robot vacuum cleaner. The robot vacuum will give you more free time to do what you enjoy. You can read a book, do hobbies, play sports, or watch television, while you watch your robotic vacuum cleaner navigate the corners of your room and do all of your vacuuming for you.
