Think about how much vacuuming you do to determine whether you need a machine with an extra-large capacity.
- Cylinder- Compact and easy to manoeuvre. They rely on suction power and work well on hard floors.
- Upright- Ideal for use on carpets as a rotating brush combs the pile to help loosen dirt and dust before sucking it up.
- Cordless- Sometimes referred to as stick vacuum cleaners, these tend to be slimline and lightweight, making them a good choice in homes where storage is an issue.
- Handheld- Convenient for quickly clearing everyday dirt and crumbs. They tend to be cordless and rechargeable and are also handy for cleaning car interiors.
