Types of vacuum cleaners

Modern vacuum cleaners can be divided into three groups:

  • vacuum cleaners for dry cleaning;
  • vacuum cleaners for wet cleaning (cleaning);
  • Robotic vacuum cleaners.

Traditional vacuum cleaners for dry cleaning - the most famous and the most simple. Models of this type of vacuum cleaners are compact and inexpensive. They save energy and are ideal for smaller spaces. Vacuum cleaners for dry cleaning clean floors without coatings, carpets and carpeting, upholstery and outerwear. These are irreplaceable vacuum cleaners for cleaning areas in the home where moisture is contraindicated (parquet, natural rugs, computer processor, the inside of the piano and so on.).

Cleaning Vacuum Cleaners have one important advantage. They can be carried out both dry and wet cleaning. Models capable of cleaning a vacuum cleaner and suck moisture and spray. They can be used to collect spilled liquid from the floor, wash the carpet and clean the furniture.

Power rating from 300 to 450 watts - a model for heavily soiled areas. If you have pets, carpets with high pile, you should opt for a more powerful model. Also, they typically have a power switch, allowing to select the desired operating mode and switch to a lower power.

Dust collector - reservoir, which is going to the bulk of the dust and debris. From the dust collecting device depends largely on the effectiveness of cleaning and ease of cleaning of the vacuum cleaner.

In modern models of vacuum cleaners as the dust bag often used plastic container. There under the influence of a strong air flow dust slips into a tight ball, which can then easily be removed and discarded. Container equipped with a cyclone dust collector vacuums. Their drawback - the high level of noise.

Another kind of vacuum - special bags, which can be paper or cloth. Paper bags are short-lived (they are called one-time), but they are well collect fine dust. More durable fabric dust collectors may miss small speck of dust. Therefore, these dust collectors must be supplemented by special filters. Well, in an ideal - vacuum cleaner, combined with dust collectors, which in turn can use paper and fabric bags for dust.


The filter for retaining the dust and bacteria in the vacuum cleaner, and more precisely to the dust collector. It is known that the vacuum cleaner sucks dust and dirt together with air and then air is discharged again to the outside. So the task of the filter - to filter out of the air coming out all dust particles.

Filters in modern vacuum cleaners are the following:

  • paper;
  • cloth;
  • water;
  • coal;
  • synthetic.

Filtering methods are also different. The most popular of them - cyclone. In this method, filtering dirt and dust accumulate in the dust container under the influence of a plastic spiral swirling airflow. With this method does not require replacement bags, and the container - is transparent, allowing you to control the degree of its fullness.

What's really important to know about the filter, so it's just - it is washable and replaceable. All current models of vacuum cleaners are equipped with washable filters. Aquafiltering good that humidified air and do not require dust bags. Less of the filter drain the dirty water after cleaning and filling the net - before the new harvest.

There are also models with an additional filtration system. They usually act as carbon filters or N.E.R.A. These models are ideal for cleaning the house, where there are small children or people with allergies. These porous filters are able to delay the finest dust particles, and, accordingly, harmful substances contained in it.

They are light, they are easy to store, and mini vacuum cleaners are relatively cheap. Of course, low-powered compact vacuum cleaners, but after cleaning the area and not great. The full-size vacuum cleaners have a high capacity, usually equipped with container dust collectors can have a water filter.

Another characteristic of compactness - Parking (storage method). The most convenient way - vertical parking, in which the vacuum cleaner is stored standing up, and on top of it - the fixed tube. An important indicator of compactness - length of cord. The most optimal length - six meters. In addition, when you buy, make sure the function avtosmatyvaniya cord (this is important too), the presence of a rubber bumper to protect furniture from bumps, dust bag full indicator and automatic thermal shutdown.

Another additional feature of some models of modern vacuum cleaners - steam. This function allows you to disinfect the premises by means of hot steam. They can handle any surface to get rid of mold and allergens.


The way a vacuum cleaner equipped with optional accessories depends largely on the quality and the complexity of cleaning and ease of use by the vacuum cleaner. For example, the telescopic tube (retractable, like a telescope) allow you to select and set the desired length depending on the growth of man. Metal pipes are more stable and durable than plastic. Yet, for example, it is very convenient when the switch is on the handle tube or integrated into the lever of the foot switch.

A set of nozzles should include brushes for carpets and smooth surfaces, the nozzle for collecting dust in narrow spaces (crevice tool). And if you are among the lucky owners of pets, it's good to complete nozzles present turbo brush. This nozzle with rotating roller, which is perfectly collects lint and hair from all surfaces.

As you can see, to understand how to choose a vacuum cleaner for an apartment or a suburban housing, not so difficult.
