4 Tips to choosing the right vacuum cleaner

For those of you who are like me and like to vacuum the house as quick as possible , then the right vacuum is essential for you.

Here are a few questions I asked myself prior to going out and purchasing a vacuum cleaner.

  1. Canister vs Upright?
  2. Am I cleaning mostly carpet or hard flooring?
  3. What about a stick , robotic or handheld?
  4. What is my budget?

I have tried a fair few vacuum cleaners except for a robotic. I do not know if I will ever purchase a robotic because for some reason my brain has been programmed that I think I need to hold the product to do the work.

So the reason I am writing this blog about vacuum cleaners is because my trusted Dyson vacuum no longer works and now I need to go and buy myself a brand new one. I have owned 3 different Dyson vacuum cleaners which I have loved using but this time round I did not know if I wanted to spend the money for another one.

My decision was to buy a low budget vacuum and see how good it is and how long it will last me.

The vacuum I chose to test out was the Electrolux Ease C3 origin Vacuum Cleaner. I purchased the vacuum for $199 and I was so excited to start vacuuming.

The first time I vacuum wit the Electrolux I could not below the suction on it. It was so powerful and cleaned all my rugs really well. I thought this was amazing at how fast and easy it was too clean. I also loved that the vacuum was light weight and easy to carry up and down the stairs.

After about a month, I started to dislike the vacuum as I had to keep on cleaning the filter after 2 or more times I had used the vacuum cleaner. I think I spent more time cleaning the vacuum rather than actually vacuuming.

What I did next was I contacted Electrolux enquiring if this were was a fault with the vacuum that I purchased or it is normal to be cleaning my filter nearly every 2 time I used the vacuum. They asked if I wanted a refund and I accepted the offer. I know the vacuum was not an expensive one but I still expected the vacuum to clean alot more than I needed to clean it.

Now I was back to online shopping for take 2 for a vacuum.

My second choice was to go even cheaper and purchase the Kmart 2000W bagless vacuum for $47.00.
