Upright Vacuum Reviews

In terms of basic design, upright vacuum cleaners haven’t changed that much over the years, in that ever upright model till date features a vertical frame with the handle at the top; a dust accumulation component (bin, bag, HEPA filtration etc) at the center; and a dust gathering system at the base.

Therefore, given their basic design, upright vacuums can cover more floor space in less time. They also have higher capacity of dust intake and are best suited for cleaning carpet spreads and uncluttered floor spaces. On the downside, these vacuum cleaner configurations tend to noisy and their weightiness can prove to be stumbling block especially when trying to carry them up and down the stairs.

Things To Consider With Upright Vacuums:

A vacuum cleaner (bagged type) uses a throwaway bag for accumulating dust, which disposed off once full and replaced with a new one. But it also accounts to extra cost of purchasing additional bags. These downsides aren’t faced with bag-less variants. But, you’d need to consider replacement cost of the filter every once a year, especially if the vacuum cleaner uses a non-washable type.

This is a must for people who are allergic to dust, pollen, etc. Otherwise known as HEPA filtration systems, they are generally part of a multi-stage filtration process arresting harmful allergens within the appliance.

Vacuum brands today offer specialized attachments along with certain upright models, which can be used for a variety of needs. These could include specialized surfaces like upholstery or sucking out the dirt from corners and crevices for that matter. But, if you want to achieve all this without sacrificing on the usual advantages of an upright vacuum cleaner, then consider one with extra attachment heads.
