With most people, a vacuum cleaner isn`t really an inspiring machine. If you don`t care about how it works, then you probably don`t want to vacuum to start with. At the same time, no one wants to live in a pigsty or dirty home even.
These days, however, things have begun to change for the better, and people`s attitudes are changing as well. Vacuum cleaners are becoming interesting and it`s all thanks to James Dyson, the inventor of the Dyson vacuum cleaner.
All thanks to Dyson, vacuum cleaners have taken on a personality and life of their own. These very same tactics are even employed by the likes of Apple to successfully ploy their iMacs and iPods to the masses have now been used with tremendous results with vacuum cleaners.
Now, let`s take a look at the decision that faces you when buying a flashy vacuum cleaner. First of all, you have the choice between the upright or canister versions. The upright style of vacuum cleaners will require you to use them in the traditional push and pull fashion, although the latest vacuum from Dyson, the DC15, has even turned this technology on its head with “Ball Technology” that will let you glide around your home with the greatest of ease – in any direction you please.
Canister vacuum cleaners, on the other hand, come with a hose attachment for great control and flexibility, as you can quickly and easily get to all of the hard to reach places. There isn`t really a lot of difference between the two, and it`s mainly down to your personal preference, even though the upright vacuum is best suited to larger carpets.
You should also consider the power of the motor and efficiency of the filtration system as well. Those that suffer from allergies will want to pay close attention to the filtration. Dyson for one has been very successful by marketing the benefits of its patented “Cyclone” technology, which doesn`t use a bag nor does it ever get clogged up.
If you feeling really daring and adventurous and want to stay ahead of the curve, you could go for one of the very popular robotic vacuum cleaners such as the ZA01 from Electrolux or the cheaper iRobot from Roomba. While you amuse yourself or do other things, the robot will move around your home on its own will, vacuuming your entire home until it is spotless. The robot even has the technology and intelligence to return to the base when it is running low on battery power and recharge itself.
If you want to be different and unique, a flashy vacuum cleaner is a way to go. There are many different models and types to choose from, from cheap vacuums to those that cost hundreds of dollars. All you have to do is meet your creative side halfway and let the fun begin!
