Canister Vacuum Reviews

Function wise, canister vacuums cleaners offer more flexibility when compared with their upright counterparts because they are capable of cleaning carpets as efficiently as bare floors. The basic design is a two-part i.e. a long, flexible hose and a cylinder shaped ‘canister’ which houses the motor.

As a result, the long handled wand allows for greater reach and therefore more versatility when different attachments like dusting brush, upholstery brush or crevice tool is connected to it. Similarly, the canister unit houses not just the motor but also the bag (in bag type) or bin (bag-less) along with other filtration systems.

Things To Consider When Purchasing Canister Vacuums

An important point of delineation in canister vacuums today is whether the model utilizes disposable bags for storing the dirt and debris collected from the floor, or does it employ a bin for the purpose. The latter termed as ‘bag-less’ variants use a filter to separate the finer dust particles from the air flowing into the vacuum unit.

In regular models, the ‘canister’ sits on wheels and a long retractable power cord, both of which make it easy to pull the unit from one room to the other without disconnecting it from the power outlet. However, for extended vacuuming applications such as such as cleaning liquid spills on the floor, you will need to one with wet/dry capability. Similarly, for those with higher portability needs can go for backpack models.

Canister vacuums come with a large group of attachments, each suited to a specific cleaning requirement. For instance, crevice tools make it easy to suck dirt and debris out of tight spaces and narrow corners, whereas upholstery tools are specifically designed for picking up dirt from drapes, curtains, sofas and other furniture.
