4 Types of Commercial Vacuum Cleaners
One simply cannot provide the best quality cleaning service without having vacuum cleaners in one’s arsenal. In addition, vacuum cleaners are like wrenches, as one needs more than just one type of vacuum cleaner to get a good job done. The following is a look at a few of the most important types of vacuum cleaners, including high reach vacuum cleaners, and how they were specially designed to do difficult cleaning tasks:
4 Important Types of Commercial Vacuum Cleaners
- Backpack and shoulder vacuums. These style of vacuum cleaners aptly earned their name by being designed to be worn on the person’s back like a backpack (the preferred kind, as it reduces stress on shoulders and the upper back) or along the shoulder like a purse (less preferred in a commercial setting). These style vacuum cleaners are the best for adding high reach vacuum cleaning tools and adjustments, as they easily allow the user to use their arm’s reach and an extension component to get into places like ceiling corners and around overhead lighting.
- SpaceVac. This vacuum is revolutionary for its ability to reach extremely high places. SpaceVac can reach heights of up to 35 feet without the assistance of a ladder, ensuring safety for those who use it. It also comes with an attached camera, so there is no worry about missing spots while you are reaching heights from floor level. This vacuum’s industrial power assures that cleanup is as efficient as possible.
- Carpet extractor and floor scrubbers. These style vacuums are high-power cleaners, utilizing a special mix of hot water and detergent to scrub carpet, tiles, and other style floorings via a scrub brush and strong suction. These machines are also commonly referred to as steam cleaners, carpet shampooers, and commercial scrubbers — and there are some unique differences between each style. Most of this type of vacuum cleaner won’t come with many hand attachments, at least not for commercial types, and aren’t built to reach in higher places.
- Standard upright vacuum cleaners. These are the most common type of vacuum cleaners and the style most people will have and use in their home, such as a Dyson upright vacuum cleaner. In this type of vacuum cleaner, the motor and suction are built together and the vacuum will work well on most any type of carpet, tile, or hardwood flooring. Most don’t do well with liquids and they won’t actually clean the flooring, built instead solely to suction up dirt, dust, and other debris into either a vacuum bag or a canister that will require emptying. In the commercial setting, upright vacuum cleaners are best utilized in smaller areas that don’t require moving a lot of furniture, such as a personal office or conference room. Like the backpack and shoulder vacuum, it’s possible to add extensions to get into higher locations.
