Choosing the right vacuum cleaner for you. Should I buy a canister, upright or central vacuum? A look at the Montreal market and living space. Part 2 the canister vacuum
Canister: This is the second most popular style of vacuum cleaner after the upright model, but it is quickly gaining market share for many reasons. First I would like to state that my personal preference towards the Upright or Canister style vacuum clearly lands in with the canister machine. This being said there are certain customers I have that have tried the canister style machine and quickly return back to their beloved upright. However, the versatility of a canister machine along with the strong suction (our guardian platinum model offers 535 air watts which is similar to a central vacuum on wheels) makes the canister style my preferred cleaning tool for homes in the 21st century.
-Very versatile unit with attachments on board the machine (from carpet to floor with a quick change of attachment)
-Picks up well on carpets and hard surfaces (offers more suction power than upright)
-Lightweight on the hand as you are only holding a hose.
-Fits perfectly on the stairs.
-Takes up more storage space than a Upright.
-More likely to have repairs to the body of the unit as the machine follows you.
- Any type of home or condo with different surfaces (carpets, granite, marble, tile, linoleum to name a few).
- Homes with several floors as the machine is lightweight and is perfect for stairs.
- People who want the best suction power and best cleaning results.
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR
- I would personally recommend the canister vacuum cleaner for all home types (Condos, apartments, cottages, ranch style split level and even commercial use) we sell canister models too many leading hotel chains including the Fairmount, Sheraton, Hilton and Holiday Inn hotel groups in the Montreal area.
As I stated earlier when it comes to what I think is the better vacuum cleaner for your home the canister model is the clear winner. Yes I must say they do tend to break a little more often than the upright models, but due to the versatility and how much more suction power there is in a canister I have a hard time advising my clients to go with a upright over a canister. Considering that Electrolux or Aerus as we are now known has been manufacturing a American made canister vacuum cleaner for over 90 years there is no wonder why I think the canister is the best bang for your buck. If you are in the market for a new canister vacuum cleaner you owe it to yourself to see what all the different options are.
