So What Does this Actually Mean?

 

When shopping for a vacuum, you should make sure:

 

1. The vacuum you purchase is the ideal machine for your unique flooring needs.

 

2. It’s Reliable. Investing in a vacuum is just that: An investment. Unless you want to purchase a new vacuum every few years, it’s worth researching and reading reviews on performance and reliability. 

  • Non-biased/ Non Affiliate sites such as Consumer Reports or blog sites are the best to read for accurate, non-skewed information.

3. The Seller: We suggest you note the source you are purchasing a vacuum from. Who you purchase from will act as your warranty station for replacement parts or if the item breaks while under warranty. If the seller has been in the business for a long time and is easy to get a hold of/ responsive to it’s customers, this is worth noting.

4. Customer Reviews: What are people saying about this machine?

5. User Ability: Is this machine user-friendly? 

6. Weight: Make sure you research how heavy the machine is before you purchase.

7. Size: Where will you store this machine? Will it fit in that space? 

 

 

Purchasing a vacuum should be a fun, hassle-free experience. If you have any Questions, Comments, or Feedback, We Would Love To Hear From You!
