When it comes to carpet cleaning, the vacuum of choice is a very important aspect of the whole service. In this case, providers and contractors can choose between upright, canister and backpack vacuums. But which one of these is the best choice? Let’s see! Overall, when considering which vacuum is the best, there are a few things that we have to be aware of – the size of the carpet that has to be cleaned and how often it will be cleaned are the main ones.

Upright vacuums are is a simple unit that is consisting of a handle that is attached to the vacuum mechanism. These are very easy to use and control because you can guide it by moving the handle and the wheels on the bottom of the unit will move. As you can see, a simple and light option that is great for bigger areas that need to be covered entirely. Canister vacuums, on the other hand, sit entirely on wheels and to control and guide them you have to roll them around the area, while the hose is moved. These are another lightweight and easy to work with an option, often more durable, stable and portable than the upright vacuums and because of that are often preferred for bigger office and industrial areas. Canister vacuums are also a number one choice for stairs and hard-to-reach areas too.

Backpack vacuums look entirely different, but they have the same function. This type of vacuums are mounted to the back of the user and there is no rolling part, neither attached hose, because of that there is no chance for tangling in office furniture and you are way more mobile when using the backpack vacuum. In fact, when a backpack vacuum is used, the final result is very smooth and even carpet, without any lines or so. Backpack vacuums tend to be one of the most highly preferred by customers and clients, because of the “uniform” look with no lines left.

The compact nature of backpack vacuums makes them very convenient for hard-to-reach areas such as ceiling corners, stair corners, around light fixtures and so on. However, these are not the most powerful option and while backpack vacuums are great on a daily basis, a stronger vacuum is recommended at least twice a month.
