Here in our Vacuum Cleaners subcategory of Appliances classifieds we are going to go over different kind of vacuums and their subsequent pros and cons. That way, you can make an informed decision about what kind of used vacuum cleaner for sale is best for you.
According to Consumer Reports - who tested vacuums using more than 16 miles of carpets and floors - some of the more expensive models deliver "less than their price tag suggests." Therefore, know that you do not need the priciest vacuum cleaner for sale with all the bells and whistles. Consider your individual vacuuming needs, and how often you vacuum, to let that lead you in the right direction.
Regardless of what type of vacuum you go with, it is recommended to "try it out." You can either ask the seller if you can try the machine out before purchasing, or you can go to a store and try the same model that you're going to be looking at.
Upright vacuums for sale are probably the most common. These vacuums do best on carpets and allow for simple storage ľ the hose, power brush, etc, is all together in one unit. The downside to these machines is that they can be quiet heavy and noisy.
Canister vacuums are ideal for stairs, and for maneuvering in tight spaces, such as under furniture; they also are excellent for vacuuming drapes or curtains. Canister vacuums for sale are quieter than upright, and typically contain several attachments.
Bagless vacuums can be upright vacuums or canisters. They have become more popular in recent years because you save money without buying bags. However, you do still need the filters that need to be cleaned regularly and replaced on occasion. Bagless vacuums are not recommended for people with asthma or similar lung problems, because they emit a lot of dust and dirt when you're changing or cleaning the filter.
Central vacuums are great, but more expensive and involved than other types. These basically involve an internal cleaning system in your home wherein the main unit is located in a central spot with "suction ports" placed throughout your home. A long cleaning hose then attaches to these ports. Central vacuums are quiet, and eliminate the need to drag a large machine around the house.
Stick vacuums for sale, also called handheld vacuums, are often battery powered, dismissing the need for an electrical cord. These vacuums do not perform as well on carpets and tend to be noisy. The upside is that they are lightweight.
Robot vacuums have come out in recent years as ideal vacuums because they essentially do the work for you. However, they tend to be more expensive, they can miss corners and other spots, and overall they're juts not as practical. If you own a robotic vacuum you may want to have a "regular" vacuum in addition to it.
Small or mini vacuums are another type of used vacuum for sale wherein you probably want to own a primary vacuum in addition. Small vacuums are portable, easy to store, and are great for a quick clean, like if you spilled something. They are of course less powerful than the bigger models, however.
Steam cleaners can be quite expensive, but for good reason, because they are awesome at deep cleaning, upholstery, furniture, etc. Some people choose to rent them instead of buy them, but if you do decide to buy you will certainly get use out of it.
