Let’s face it. No one can expect to be deemed a bona fide domestic god or goddess if they don’t know to use the vacuum cleaner. Just like the ironing board or the steam mop, a house isn’t a home if you don’t have it. Even a simple structure like a shop requires a good vacuum cleaner.
Therefore, as you open up your new bridal shop, you need to make sure that you invest in this machine that sweeps all the dirt, pet hair (in case brides and their families insist on trying the dress next to their furry companions) and also allergens within minutes.
However, in the modern world of fancy futuristic cordless spaceship-like machines and annoying Miele and Dyson ads, vacuum cleaners are a wee bit complex than back in the day. Therefore you need to have a clue as to the best pet hair vacuum for your shop.
Good thing you’ve got this comprehensive guide to walk you through it, right? Well, let’s dig into it.
Upright or Cylinder Vacuums
Upright vacuums are your bread and butter, or your PB & J, the staple of every home and shop. The vacuum model is as old-fashioned as watching a movie on a DVD. Still, until Dyson cylinder became the talk of the town, upright vacuums were the ultimate floor sucker choice for every cleaning enthusiast.
The vacuum cleaners are bulkier and have a more limited reach, but they offer you a more significant capacity that enables for fewer dust-caked runs to the bin. Some models also come with an electro brush on the floor head – a motorized brush bar that works excellently when it comes to picking up all shreds of pet fur and scattered hairs.
Cylinder vacuums, on the other hand, are the fancy-pants of the vacuum empire. They’re lightweight, have a more extended reach and are great at picking up dirt on staircases and the tough-to-reach nooks and crannies of your home. However, they can also be tricky to store away tidily due to the massive and long nozzle.
They’re also not very ideal when you want to get rid of the pet hair, so keep that in mind the next time Sheila’s pup decides to start malting on your exotic carpet collection.
Bagged or Bagless
Much like a beauty queen who drifts away with cucumber on their eyes or online shopping, several vacuum cleaners today are going bagless. Bagless vacuums suck at the dirt straight up to the canister and then the dirt is pulled out and dumped directly in the bin. As much as it saves you from losing your breath and savings running to the shop to buy a new bag, bagless vacuums are detrimental to allergy sufferers. Even a simple aversion to accidentally dropping the vacuum’s worth of dirt on the floor will attest to how problematic these hoovers can be.
Nonetheless, it’s not clear cut when it comes to selectin between the two. While the bagged vacuum cleaners are more comfortable to empty, cater to asthma and allergy suffers and offer you a bigger capacity, they do cost you more cash over time.
Cordless or Corded Vacuums
No, these aren’t the mini vacuum cleaners that were ‘the in-thing’ in the 90s and weren’t of much use to anyone, the modern cordless vacuums are of a more practical size and save you from having to unplug and re-plug your vacuum constantly. So, even if the power company decides to offer you a work-free day, you can use that time to do some cordless vacuuming.
The devices are slim-line in shape, thus making them nifty to store, but they also tend to take a lot of time charging – a factor that as long as you continue offering the power company it’s due, won’t be an issue for the corded option.
