This review will look at two uprights carpet vacuums, a high end vacuum and a lower end vacuum that can hold up to most of the important features of its high end competitor. The Institute of Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC) recommends vacuuming your carpet once a week to as much as once a day, depending on how much use it gets.
So you need a new upright vacuum and you are overwhelmed with the choices you have. So here are some tips on getting the most bang for your buck.
When buying a new upright vacuum for your carpet, the most expensive is not always worth it. There are some basic things to look for that can determine how well the vacuum will work for you. The first thing to look for is how powerful the vacuum suction will be. A good way to determine this, is the amount of amps that the motor has. The higher the amps, the stronger the motor, thus the better the pulling power it will have. Most vacuums will range from 6.5 amps to as many as 12 amps. The next feature is the weight. A heavy upright vacuum is not much fun to use and will discourage its use. The third thing we looked at, was the width of its path.
