In the world of vacuum cleaners there many types of vacuums each having
its own specific task. Residential vacuums are usually inexpensively
priced and are light weight. Commercial vacuum cleaners come in two
common forms, the upright vacuum cleaner and the back pack vacuum
cleaner. Floor maintenance personal will usually utilize a wet dry
vacuum for removing old stripper and water from newly refinished floors.
Contactors and construction crews will usually use a commercial heavy
duty vacuum for construction cleanup and renovations.

Residential vacuum cleaners usually sell for under $400 dollars and can
have a life expectancy of up to 5 years. Residential vacuum cleaners
have a plastic body and one motor that drives both the brush and operates
the vacuum motor. The cord on a residential vacuum cleaner does not have
a ground fault plug and the overall unit is often smaller than commercial
vacuums. The most common brands of residential vacuum cleaners are
Hoover and Eureka each about 20 vacuum cleaners in its vacuum cleaner
line up. Residential vacuum cleaners come in both filter bag and non
filter bag cyclonic models and are made to be used occasionally up to 5
times a week over a 5 year period.

Commercial vacuum cleaners are made with either plastic or metal bodies
and are made to withstand more punishment than residential vacuum
cleaners. Most commercial vacuum cleaner cords are at least 50ft long
and contain a ground fault protector. An easy way to tell if a vacuum
has a ground fault protector is to make sure it has three prongs at the
end of the plug. Having a ground fault protector will help to ensure the
safety of the vacuum cleaner operator in case the cord is severed by
either the vacuum or a sharp object pressing against the cord.
Commercial vacuum cleaners usually have two motors one that runs the
brush and one that drives the vacuum.
Upright vacuum cleaners come in both residential and commercial models.
Upright vacuum cleaners usually have a base that contains the beater
brush and motors, and the bag or box enclosure that contains a filter bag
or canister for debris. Upright vacuum cleaners can include many
features such as front lights, brush height controls, on board hose and
attachments and different power modes. Upright vacuum cleaners are great
for flat open areas and small stairways.
Back pack vacuum cleaners are usually made up of a canister that is
attached to a harness and a wand with a long hose. On back pack vacuum
cleaners the canister is worn on the back and is usually made from light
weight material like plastic or resin compounds. The canister on the
vacuum cleaner usually contains a motor at one end and a filter bag at
the other. The hose is usually connected to the top end of the vacuum
and can be fitted with attachments for all types of cleaning jobs. Back
pack vacuum cleaners are great for cleaning hard to reach places and
large stairways. Because of the portability of these vacuum cleaners
they are used commonly in commercial cleaning environments.

Wet dry vacuum cleaners are great for residential and commercial use.
Disposable wet dry vacuum cleaners range from $20 to $500 dollars are are
usually fitted with under powered motors or seals that will degrade over
time. These vacuums usually have a life expectancy of about 3 years
depending on how they are used. Most disposable wet dry vacuum cleaners
have a plastic or resin tank and rigid plastic hose. Commercial wet dry
vacuum cleaners are made for heavy duty applications such as construction
cleanup and floor maintenance. Commercial wet dry vacuums come with
heavy duty motors and replaceable seals and can have a life expectancy up
to 10 years depending on how they are used. Commercial wet dry vacuum
cleaners usually have a metal or hard resin canister with a heavy duty
motor mounted on the top. Some commercial wet dry vacs can be fitted
with a front mount squeegee and are great for floor maintenance cleanups
or for cleaning up wet floors. When purchasing a wet dry vacuum make
sure it has a three pronged plug and has ground protection circuitry for
safety.

Wide area vacuum cleaners are wide vacuums which can measure up to 3 feet
wide. These types of vacuum cleaners are perfect for large open areas
such as conference centers, hotel hallways or banquet halls. Wide area
vacuums can cut vacuuming time in open areas up to 50% compared to
regular upright vacuum cleaners. Wide area vacuum cleaners have a beater
brush that runs the whole length of the vacuum and large commercial heavy
duty motors to create super powerful suction. The debris area within the
wide area vacuum is usually quite large and can go for hours without
empting. Wide area vacuum cleaners usually come in two types, walk
behind and ride on. Ride on wide area vacuum cleaners are similar to a
lawn tractor and contain a high power vacuum systems.
