  • The wet-dry vacuum cleaners, perfect for cleaning places where there may be humidity, such as garages, porches, etc.

Choosing the best type of Vacuum Cleaner

When choosing a vacuum cleaner, the first thing to be clear about is what kind of device is best for you. If you don’t have a vacuum cleaner, you should opt for a model that allows you to thoroughly clean all types of surfaces. In this case, sledge vacuums (including those with a water filter) would be your first choice. They are the most complete, offer good power and a multitude of accessories, so that they clean all types of floors, corners, upholstery, etc. well. Other types of vacuum cleaners perform more specific purposes, so it all depends on your need. You should also put into consideration the need to have a vacuum cleaner with easily accessible accessories, like the shark hoover battery, in your locality in case of repair and maintenance needs.

How Big Is Your House?

Size matters and you should take that into account when choosing a vacuum cleaner. If you have a very spacious home, sledge-type vacuum cleaners will suit you well, since they do not depend on a battery, although you must take into account their radius of action, which depends mainly on the length of the cable. The radii of action usually go from 8 to 11 meters (vacuum cleaners like the Nilfisk Performer Superior reach an extraordinary 13 meters). If you are thinking of choosing a broom-type vacuum cleaner, you should take into account the capacity of the tank and its autonomy (how many minutes the battery lasts). Keep in mind, also, that the autonomy of the battery declared by the manufacturer is a function of the power to which you aspire. That is, if you use the maximum power, it will last much less.

How Often Do You Clean?

To keep the house clean every day, the best choices are robot vacuum cleaners (which take care of the task themselves) or broom vacuum cleaners, which allow you to clean quickly and comfortably. For deep cleaning (the classic weekly cleaning), the best alternative is the sledge-type vacuum cleaners, which combine good power with a wide variety of accessories.


Power is one of the most sought after and valued features from many users of vacuum cleaners. The first thing to keep in mind is that the nominal power (the watts that this vacuum has) is not the same as its suction power (the force with which it absorbs through the tube). Although in principle, they have a certain relationship, it is not direct. That is, there may be vacuum cleaners with fewer watts (which implies a lower consumption of electricity) that have a greater suction capacity (which suck better). In short, that higher power in watts does not ensure a better suction power.
