An upright vacuum is a great appliance for keeping your floors and carpets clean.
The main cleaning head is the base of the vacuum cleaner, and because of its build, this type of vacuum can easily use the suction and motorized brush roll to clean hardwood floors, laminate, tile, carpets, and rugs.
But what about other areas and surfaces of your home?
If you’re going to invest in an expensive vacuum, you want to get the most out of it. You need a machine that can not only clean floors but above-floor areas too. Your stairs, furniture, drapes, baseboards, vents, and many such surfaces need vacuuming too. And an adaptable upright vacuum is up to the job!
Attachments are an important factor when deciding on an upright vacuum. Because uprights are bulky and quite heavy, you definitely need them to get that versatility you need to keep your whole home clean.
Some of these attachments may be included with the vacuum you buy, and others may be purchased separately as add-ons. When comparing different models against each other, make sure the vacuum you choose comes with a set that matches your needs.
Most upright vacuums come with at least two attachments: the crevice tool and a dusting brush. But if you own a pet that sheds, a motorized brush is a huge benefit. Or, if you want more reach, and the extension wand is a must.
In the end, it all comes down to your individual needs and which attachments you need to make the most of your upright vacuum and to keep every inch of your home clean.
