German engineering is revered as the best in the world; so choose a German-made vacuum cleaner for the cleanest home in the world! They are built to last, look fantastic and, thanks to their ergonomic design ‘drive’ like a dream! SEBO offers some handy top tips on what to consider when purchasing a new vacuum cleaner. Upright or cylinder vacuum cleaner? Uprights are great for a large carpeted area as they are easy to manoeuvre whereas a cylinder could be considered for small areas with lots of furniture and hard floors. Many vacuum cleaners, however, can do both jobs as many houses have different floors. Also, take a look at the attachments and make sure your whole home is catered for (bear in mind you’ll be vacuuming furniture and curtains from time to time) and if you have pets or allergies, look at models designed to pull up more hair. What floorcoverings do you have in your home? It’s not just the difference between carpet or hard flooring; it’s the type of flooring too. For example, if you have a loop carpet, you’ll want a model where you can turn off the brush roller so it doesn’t get caught. Hard flooring can be uneven so look for something designed to cope with this, such as a combination head. Who will be using the vacuum cleaner? Remember to think about who is using the machine. If the user is frail or small-framed, a lighter, more nimble machine is the way to go. Bag or bagless? When first introduced, bagless machines were the must-have, no-fuss option but, these days, bag technology has come a long way and, if you suffer from allergies or simply want a clean emptying process, look for a machine with micro-fibre high filtration bags which keep all the dust and particles inside. Energy efficiency and performance rating EU rulings state that all vacuum cleaners sold in the UK need to be clearly labelled with their energy efficiency level and performance ratings. Be sure to ask an expert in a reputable store to make sure you are buying the right machine!
