You need a new vacuum cleaner but with all of the options you can’t decide which is best for you and your family. Every home has is different vacuum and for that reason not every vacuum cleaner is right for you. In order to decide which is best for you and your family consider all of the options.

Do I Need A HEPA Filter?

If someone in your family suffers from allergies, asthma or any breathing problems you should consider a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter doesn’t allow the dust to return to the air a HEPA filter traps most of the airborne particles that can cause a person to have an allergy or asthma attack. There are still a few models of vacuum cleaners that don’t use a HEPA filter so make sure to ask your dealer or salesperson about this feature.

Do I Need All The Accessories?

Most prefer to keep the cost of their vacuum cleaner low but if you do a great deal of heavy cleaning or if you have a large family that will track mud, dirt and whatever else they can find you might want to consider a vacuum cleaner that does more than just pick up dirt off of the carpet.

There are a few brands out there that offer accessories to help buff your hardwood floors, shampoo carpets and clean your tiling. If you are considering buying something to do these jobs it would be a good idea to check into some of the more deluxe vacuum cleaners and find one that has all of those machines in one place. This will reduce your cost and storage space.

To Bag Or Not To Bag

Many vacuum cleaners now come without the need for a bag. Those that don’t require a bag generally fill up fairly quickly and need to be emptied often. This also puts the user in direct contact with the dust and dirt. A vacuum cleaner that uses a bag reduces much of that contact with the dirt and they hold a good deal more than a bagless. The downside to a bag is you must make sure you always have them on hand, as running without one will damage your equipment and simply toss dust and dirt back into the air.

When shopping for a vacuum cleaner consider your price range, your families needs and your cleaning habits. Take the time to shop around and compare products both in store and online. If you take your time and choose one that fits your needs you will have a product that will last you a long time. Make sure to always check the warranty on any product you choose to buy and ask about extended service warranties as well.
