There are many different types of vacuum cleaners, and knowing what one to choose can be a bit of a headache.
Of course there are obvious reasons for buying certain types of cleaners. For example, a handheld cleaner is great for cars and getting into the nooks of furniture.
But what about a stand-up vacuum cleaner, and when should one of this style be bought over a more traditional “turtle” vacuum cleaner (I made up that term, only because I didn’t know what to call a traditional low spherical vacuum cleaner!)
This guide will take you through the decision making process when considering what type of vacuum cleaner to purchase.
Do you have stairs?
Do you have pets?
Do you prefer bagged or bag less vacuum cleaners?
Choosing between a bagged or bag less vacuum cleaner is a confusing decision on its own! I’ve written a guide here already which you can explore for more discussion on this topic. The general consensus is that a bagged vacuum cleaner is the best choice for most people.
