What You Need to Know Before Buying a Vacuum Cleaner


Shopping for a vacuum cleaner doesn’t seem like much at first, but because there are many different types of vacuums available in your local appliance store, there’s also a lot more to keep in mind to make sure that you get the best one that suits exactly what you need.

Here are the things that you need to know about before you decide to buy a vacuum cleaner for your HDB flat or condo in Singapore:

  1. Budget

While you do need to invest in a high-quality appliance that works well and will last you a long time, there’s no need to go all-out unless you want to. There are many vacuum cleaners you can get that are cheap, but will still last you a long time when given proper care and maintenance.

  • Features

You should especially consider the features that every type of vacuum cleaner brings when looking for the right one to clean your home with, especially since modern models can come in all kinds of designs, shapes, and colors, but may not necessarily have the cleaning capacity you need.

For instance, if you need to clean tapestries, curtains, or carpets, you might be better off investing in models with an adjustable suction control. Motorized brushes are also a must if you want one that protects the finish of bare floors while at the same time avoiding debris.

  • Allergies

Is anyone at home suffering from asthma or allergies? If the answer is yes, you will need a vacuum cleaner more than ever. More specifically, you will need a model that’s specifically safe to handle for those whose allergies or asthma can easily be triggered by the spread of dust.

The best go-to model for this situation would be one that comes with a bag, since it has a higher capacity while also being safer in terms of maintenance and dust disposal.

  • Type of Cleaning

The vacuum cleaner’s capacity should also fit the type of cleaning that you need to do for your condo or HDB flat.

For instance, if you’re looking to clean a place with carpeted floors or a lot of rugs, then a vacuum cleaner with a bag is your best choice. Meanwhile, harder surfaces such as tiled floors are easier to clean with bag-less models (they use canisters instead of bags for easier maneuverability).

  • Ease of Maintenance

Taking care of your appliances ensures that they will last you for a long time. However, not all types of vacuum cleaners can be so easily maintained, so if you don’t have enough time to do this, be sure to get one that you can clean out without too much hassle.
