Purchasing a vacuum cleaner can almost be said to be an investment in your health and safety as well as the cleanliness of your environment. Most people buy a vacuum cleaner with the intention to use it for a good few years before replacement. Hence, it is important to shop around for the right one instead of purchasing the first vacuum out there.

In this article, we list out some questions to ask yourself when purchasing a vacuum.  

Do you need an industrial or residential vacuum?

Are you purchasing the vacuum for industrial or residential use? If you work in an industry that is constantly exposed to dangerous dust particles and fumes, an industrial vacuum would be a better choice. However, if you are simply looking for a vacuum to keep your shopfront looking clean and presentable, a residential vacuum may do the job. If you are unsure, you may want to do some research into the different features of these models before making up your mind. 

Are allergies a concern?

If someone in your family or work team has allergies, you will want to get a vacuum that removes allergens from the air instead of recirculating them. To this end, bagged vacuums are better at trapping dust and fumes when compared to the containers of bagless vacuums. Always make sure that the vacuum has an airtight design and is fitted with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter. Bagged vacuums are excellent choices for cleaning the environment and getting rid of harmful, allergy-causing dust and fumes simultaneously. 

Do you constantly have to clean up wet spills? 

If you are constantly having to clean up wet spills either at home or work, a wet/dry vacuum is your best bet. Most vacuums are only designed to work on dry surfaces, but a wet/dry vacuum comes with high suction power suitable for cleaning up liquid spills. Working just like normal vacuums when it comes to dust and fumes, a wet/dry vacuum is a must-have if you find yourself constantly dealing with wet surfaces.

Do you need a skid mounted vacuum or trailer mounted vacuum?

Industrial customers usually choose between one or the other options. Skid mounted vacuums are made to be practical and depending on the application and facility you want to use it in, they can be lightweight and portable. Coming with the option of either diesel/gas or electric vacuums, these devices are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of certain industries. 

Trailer mounted vacuums are portable machines designed to clean up both liquid and solid spills in a variety of conditions. From above-ground to underground workspaces, these vacuums can do the job efficiently when it comes to cleaning up unwanted debris.
