People say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but what about her trusty vacuum. Recently I decided to buy a new vacuum cleaner, and it’s crazy the amount of options that exist. You have regular upright vacuums, canister, robotic, and different types and styles depending on the floor. I decided to go with a canister for the added benefits of HEPA filters and the versatility they have. I found the best canister vacuums from the website https://www.canistervacuumexperts.com/ and determined that really the only things that differ are the suction power and cost. This website was great in that it outlines the 5 best based on cost and the various additional features added. A couple of the brands I was definitely more confident with like Hoover and Bissell, but I never heard of Electrolux or Miele before.
The Vacuum for Me
So I decided to end up buying the Electrolux that was detailed on Canister Vacuum Experts. They had awesome reviews by previous buyers on Amazon and it seemed like the perfect vacuum for me. The Electrolux is actually designed to be multi-surface and I have several different surfaces in my house that need to be cleaned. We have tile, carpet, as well as wood, all of which need different settings to effectively clean. The brush roll also can clean itself which is something I’ve never seen before. I usually have to take out a pair of scissors every couple of months and cut any hairs that might have grown. I can also safely clean delicate surfaces like my curtains and tablecloth. The vacuum also comes with a HEPA filter which essentially gets rid of any dust and allergens that can be a problem in the home.
Future Proofing Yourself
I’m not sure how many people know this but future proofing yourself with technology is necessary. It seems every year technology grows and grows, even for things like vacuums. Most likely in the future people won’t even have to vacuum their floors and do any sort of manual labor for that matter but for now, buying a vacuum that will last you a couple of years is more than worth it. I expect this Electrolux to last at least another 3-5 years. A lot of people are turned off by the pricing that vacuums can incur but I look at it with the perspective above. I’d rather splurge and spend $300-$1500 on a vacuum and know that it will last. Rather than buy a low-end vacuum that may cause problems down the line and not work as effectively as you hope. There is nothing worse than having dirty floors or a dirty house in general. Taking your vacuum to a repair shop could also cost more than it saves you. Do yourself a favor, buy the higher end option and save your money elsewhere.
Being a mom in a house full of boys can be difficult. Buying a vacuum cleaner that was up to par with the heavy duty lifestyle was important to my success.
