Commercial Upright Vacuum

Commercial Upright Vacuums are made a little differently than a residential upright vacuum. In order to choose the correct commercial upright for your business, you must first know a bit about how exactly to choose the ideal vacuum for your needs.

Commercial upright vacuums tend to be heavier duty than residential vacuums. Commercial vacuum cleaners will get used much more often and will tend to clean more square footage than your household vacuum. There are many upsides to a commercial vacuum cleaner such as a longer power cord, strong wheels that can effortlessly pass over uneven terrain, and less maintenance overall. Because of these reasons commercial vacuums will have a higher price tag but what you get in the end will definitely be worth it in terms of quality, durability, suction strength, power, and convenience over their residential counterparts.

Before choosing which type of commercial upright vacuum that you would like, think about what you will be using it for. A wider head will cover much more floor space than one with a smaller head so this means a large room will be cleaned in less time since more floor space will be covered with each sweep. This saves on time and labor costs. Decide if a standard upright will suffice or if cleaning tools onboard the upright will be needed for tight spaces around furniture, in corners, or on stairs. Choosing bagged or bagless vacuum cleaners is a big consideration for many vacuum consumers these days. Bagged vacuums seem to be able to hold more dirt than bagless ones. Emptying the dirt from bagless vacuums releases a good amount of dust into the air. This might not be the best choice for allergy sufferers. On the upside, you will save on having to purchase vacuum bags and never have to worry about running out of them. On the other hand, bagged vacuums will oftentimes have a convenient indicator to let you know when to change the bag and when you do remove the full bag significantly less dust is dispersed into the air making for a much cleaner removal and a popular choice for those with asthma and allergies. Both types have their own positives and negatives. Will dust and other airborne contaminants be a factor? If cleaning nursing homes, medical facilities or other areas that require unpolluted air, then you might want to consider an upright with a HEPA filter that will capture and contain fine dust particles. These HEPA filtration systems will require frequent bag changes and filter cleaning.

What are the differences between upright commercial vacuums and others?

There are three basic types of full service commercial vacuums: the upright, canister and backpack. The upright vacuum is one standing unit that has the suction nozzle at the base of the unit. These are the most popular. Uprights are usually heavier but they also are considered to have the most power, the strongest suction, and have a higher capacity to hold more dust and dirt than both the canister and backpack vacuum cleaners.

The residential canister vacuum differs from the commercial canister. The residential canister vacuum has the cleaning nozzle at the end of a wand which is linked to the vacuum unit through a hose. This is a very versatile type of vacuum since it tends to include on-board hardware to clean various surfaces or materials. The unit has wheels in order to be dragged by the user. The commercial canister vacuum also comes in two parts: the hose for suction and the body unit. Instead of dragging the unit around on wheels, the user has a shoulder strap or hold the unit in hand. These vacuums are good for stairs and other small, tight areas.

The backpack vacuum is similar to commercial canister vacuums where it has two parts: hose and unit. Rather than the single shoulder strap the user carries around the backpack vacuum like a backpack across the back on both shoulders. This type of vacuum also works well on stairs and other small, tight spaces. Each type of vacuum has either bagged or bagless options.
