Commercial Vacuums Cleaner Tips
The commmerical vacuum cleaners we reference are for use in offices and homes. If you are a professional cleaning business owner or you have a commercial location like an office or video store, you have a lot of choices as far as commercial vacuum cleaners go. But what makes a vacuum designated for commercial use?
If you are looking for a commercial vacuum, environment is everything. Is it going to stay onsite or does it need to travel from job site to job site? What are you vacuuming? Is there a lot of debris on the floor that can cause a problem with your vacuum if it picks it up while cleaning? Is the surface are being vacuumed extremely large.
A cleaning business that specializes in cleaning banks and office needs a commercial vacuum that is lightweight and durable. A Hoover Platinum, Oreck, Riccar Supralite, Sanitaire (metal models with cloth outer bag) or a Simplicity Freedom would all be excellent choices. None of these choices offers attachments, so a cheap and light compact canister would need to be brought along as well. If you aren't cleaning your own home, you could probably get away with a couple of cheap vacuums. If a couple of cheap vacuums is good enough, we recommend bagged over bagless. This is based on our experience with how consumers maintain a vacuum (not well). People tend to ignore changing filters and bags for as long as possible. Odds are you will notice a full vacuum bag before a caked up chamber filter. Go with vacuum bags.
For a video store or a site where the vacuum will reside, Sebo makes commercial quality vacuums like the Sebo Automatic X and the Essential G. The also have variations of each of these models that have a wider cleaning head to cover more square footage while cleaning. Sebo also makes a commercial vacuum that is very similar in design to the two previously mentioned. Any of the 3 vacuums will serve you extremely well on carpet and they can be taken apart without the use of tools if you clog it up.
Pay attention to what is being vacuumed up. Most vacuum shops sell magnets that can be mounted to the front of a vacuum cleaner. The magnet should pick up debris like paper clips and staples before the rollers brushes them into the vacuum. A magnet can be attached to most vacuums and they only cost 15 to 25 bucks. A magnet can help miminize repair expenses on a commercial vacuum cleaner.
Commercial vacuums need to be reliable. Make sure you don't go to cheap and that there is always a small inventory of belts, bags and filters for to keep you out of a bind.
