Vacuum for CarpetsChoosing a vacuum that suits your flooring is almost an important a decision as picking the perfect new carpet in Carrollton. Selecting the right appliance can make a homeowner or renter’s life easier by getting carpet cleaner, all while saving time and money. For these reasons, there are several important things to consider before making the purchase. Some deciding factors when shopping for a new vacuum include:

Costs and Warranty

One of the first things many consumers consider before making a big purchase it the cost. A new upright vacuum can cost anywhere from $50 to $1,000. While there are several inexpensive, low-end vacuum cleaners on the market, this does not necessarily make them the best choice. By investing a little more money you can get an efficient and long-lasting vacuum that will keep your new flooring clean and some may even come with a warranty to fix or replace parts. Some of the best upright vacuums under $200 are:

  • Bissell CleanView with OnePass, 959 | $80
  • Oreck Commercial U2000R-1 | $175
  • Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional Upright | $199

Individualized Needs

There are some situations or unique needs that your family and your Carrollton flooring may have that should be considered before you start the shopping process. For example, the consumer that has indoor pets may need a vacuum equipped to handle the job. Come vacuums can easily get clogged up with pet hair, especially if it was not manufactured for pet-specific purposes. Consumers also need to consider the length and texture of their carpet. If the vacuum does not have adjustment settings for high and low carpet it could prove to be an issue.

Location of the Carpet

The location of the carpet can play a significant role in the type of vacuum needed as well. High traffic areas will often require a heavy duty piece of equipment to facilitate good cleaning. If you have hard to reach area in your carpeted room you may want to look for a vacuum cleaner that has the necessary attachments or is maneuverable enough to clean these difficult spots.

After getting new carpet installed in your home it is always wise to invest in a new vacuum that is equipped to keep your beautiful flooring in pristine condition.
