Canister Vacuum Cleaners
Canister-Style Vacuum Cleaners
Canister vacuums are a versatile choice among the different floor-care options and typically include a rolling or handheld canister with a long hose attached. The cleaning head or nozzle is usually smaller than that of an upright vacuum, which provides an added convenience when tackling dust bunnies in those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies. They can easily fit under tables, couches and chairs—featuring a wide array of on-board tools and attachments that make any household chore a breeze.
Whether it’s for carpet, hardwood, linoleum or tile, today’s selection of canister vacuum cleaners are well-equipped to treat your home’s specific type of flooring.
Canisters Off Many Benefits
For people who have limited strength or mobility, a canister vacuum could be just the solution. Standard, upright vacuums can be heavy and difficult to maneuver for people with physical limitations, while canister-style units are comparatively lightweight. Depending on the application, many canister models can remain stationary; combined with wand attachments and lengthy power cords, these vacuums offer and extended reach for cleaning much—if not all—of your home.
Trying to clean hard surfaces with an upright vacuum is near impossible. The spinning bristles on upright vacuums can be prone to shooting dust and dirt out from the back of the machine, which only causes more of a mess. Canister vacuums, on the other hand, are designed to eliminate this issue. These portable dustbusters can move from hard surfaces to carpet with ease, making them ideal choices for stairwells, kitchens and bathrooms—any space with multiple types of flooring.
One the most popular benefits of a canister machine is the lower noise level. For households with young children or those with noise sensitivities, a canister vacuum is an optimal choice. Thanks to their innovative design—all components, including the motor, are housed within the insulated canister to reduce overall noises. Also, pets that get riled or upset when a vacuum is running might find the volume of a canister machine less objectionable, which is more restful for everyone involved.
Compact Machine, Maximum Versatility
For people who need maximum efficiency in a lightweight machine, canister vacuums are the obvious choice. They offer unparalleled versatility for cleaning any aspect of your home, and are especially hand for two-story homes, where the vacuum can be easily moved from downstairs to upstairs. Their lightweight maneuverability is much simpler to take up tight stairwells without banging into walls or shins; the hose and wand on canister vacuums is unrivaled when cleaning under the coffee table and around dining room chairs. Anyone who is constantly moving and rearranging furniture to ensure each space is neat and tidy would benefit from a canister vacuum.
The style of vacuum also is handy when it comes to the onboard tools. Users can quickly transition from a full-size cleaning head to crevice tools or other accessories. Again, the lightweight design of the canister is ideal when cleaning drapes or dusting furniture, and many come with specific tools for those chores.
