Upright Vacuum Cleaners: Spotless Suction

Whether your home is covered in carpet or you're trying to take care of a double-pile rug, there are upright vacuum cleaners designed specifically for your living space. Pet hair, food crumbs, dirt, and dust can hide all over your home, from the spaces between hardwood floor planks to awkward edges between furniture. Keep debris at bay with the help of these upright vacuums. Ensure your broom and the mop are close by, too—while all of these devices help to keep your floor clean, they serve different functions. So, why use a machine if a broom can push debris away? Well, for a number of reasons. One, brooms are only effective on hard flooring, and two, brooms can spread impurities around, though they're better for cleaning on stone and ceramic. Meanwhile, mops are designed to give hardwood and tile that extra shine, but only after you vacuum.

Convenience and Power

Upright vacuum cleaners bring some of the best floor care into your home in a convenient all-in-one package. Unlike the classic canister vacuum version, these tall cleaners pack a lot of power in an easy to maneuver device. Plug it in and turn on for a device that can sweep nearly any type of flooring. Keep in mind that some models are not designed for hard floor surfaces, and can actually damage both the machine and the rug. Make sure you read up on your machine before turning it on. Upright vacuum cleaners perform best on carpets and rugs, using their own weight to push down into the structure of the fabric for extra muscle. It's important to be careful of the power factor with more delicate rugs, though. Sometimes, a tough beater and too much suction can damage the fabric and patterns. Look for models with suction control to help moderate just how much power your new machine is pounding into the floor.

What to Look For in Multitasker Upright Vacuum Cleaners

By far, the upright vacuum's best attribute is its versatility. With many brands and models, it's easy to switch out the attachments on the hose to serve new purposes. Clean draperies, upholstery, stairs, and more with specialized attachments. Chasing a furry friend around? Look for a product that's designed to tackle shedding and pet dander to keep your home as pristine as possible. While robot vacuums have been popular from their inception, their automated program just isn't as precise as cleaning with an upright vacuum cleaner. Tuck around corners, access hard-to-reach places, and ensure your home looks just the way you want it to. Looking to keep allergens to the absolute minimum? Opt for a model with a HEPA filter to help keep airborne dust, dander, and allergens away. These filters trap small particles and keep them out of your carpet and home. Some filters need to be changed regularly, while others need to be removed, cleaned, and replaced.
