Difficult to find the best vacuum cleaner for your needs? This guide will help you choose the optimal vacuum cleaner for your home.

Vacuum once a week? Vacuum every now and then?

Hoovering the entire home once or twice a week is a conventional way of cleaning. For this, a regular vacuum cleaners are perfect – they offer plenty of cleaning power thanks to powerful suction, efficient nozzles and high-capacity dust canister. You can check on Electrolux vacuum cleaner EC41-6CR which can store up to 1.8 liters, so you can get more vacuuming done while emptying it less frequently.

A smart way to keep the home tidy is “instant cleaning” – to vacuum whenever it is needed and in any place where it is needed. For this purpose, cordless vacuum cleaners are the perfect choice. They are made with a neat design to always be at hand so you can carry them with ease. The Electrolux ErgoRapido vacuum cleaner is a stunning design icon that is perfect for this role and it can elegantly blend in your interior that you don’t have to hide it away in the storage anymore.

Vacuum once a week, vacuum every now and then
So, you have to consider the frequency of hoovering if it is once a week with a regular vacuum cleaner or whenever needed to pick some relevant options at first. But why not both of them? Many people choose the type of vacuum cleaner that fits both frequent styles, what about you?

If you have a large house

A large living space is a dream of many people. It can give you some benefits like wide cleaning spaces or that you don’t have to worry about the storage place for your vacuum cleaner. However, it requires more effort and time to clean the whole house.

Some Electrolux vacuum cleaners have an extra-long cord, so you don’t have to stop and change socket as often – handy if you have a large home. If the size of your home demands a lot of vacuuming, choose a vacuum cleaner with good dust pick-up – that makes vacuuming more efficient and easier.

Also, if you vacuum a lot, it’s extra important to choose a vacuum that’s easy to manoeuvre and has ergonomic features. An ergonomic handle combined with a manoeuvrable nozzle, for example, ease the strain on your wrist.

In addition, when possessing a house with a large floor area, you should consider equipping a robotic vacuum cleaner. It can reduce your cleaning time and you then only need to care for other areas that it is not able to reach like desktops, shelves, windowsills…

Electrolux has an adequate range of vacuum cleaners that are ergonomic, easy to manoeuvre, having a long cord or cordless, or robotic models for you to choose.

Different types of floors

Getting the best cleaning performance on different types of floors is all down to the nozzle. If you have carpeted areas, a motorized nozzle with a 180° rotating brush is best, as it agitates the carpet pile and helps loosen dust and dirt. Hard floor nozzles with soft brushes are ideal for wooden and tiled floors, it’s efficient yet easy on the floor to prevent scuff marks.

Choose a vacuum cleaner with a nozzle that suits the types of floors in your home. If needed, combine with another nozzle.

If you have pets

Hair from pets can be extremely hard to get rid of, especially from fabrics like carpets and upholstery. A vacuum cleaner with a motorized nozzle is the best choice for picking up embedded hair and is also ideal for deep down carpet cleaning and grooming.
