The best cleaning tool available today is the vacuum cleaner. There are so many kinds of vacuum cleaners that you would be spoiling for choice. While some clean bigger spaces in a short time, others clean narrow spaces easily. Some can store dirt in on cleaning and others can store and carry around dirt. Wet and dry vacuum cleaners can clean dry hard floors sucking up the dirt off even the deepest carpeting and at the same time they are designed to clean liquid spills. Technically the way to operate a wet and dry vacuum cleaner is the same as operating a regular one. The function is the same with just one difference. In this kind of cleaner, the dirt collected is dissolved in the water inside the machine; hence, the dirt does not come flying out. The main point of buying such a cleaner is that, it a versatile cleaning tool. You don't have to go rushing for a rag everytime some liquid is spilled. You can also retrieve items that have gone down the drain and the wet and dry vacuum cleaner can also be used to unclog a pipe. On the other hand, we have the heavy duty vacuum cleaners. Though they are priced highly, they are still worth the investment. They have a longer life. These come with a plastic and a metal body too. They clean the floor and carpets equally well in just one go. They have a powerful motor and are heavy. If you live on the second or the third floor, carrying a heavy duty vacuum cleaner all the way up is a daunting task. In this way, the light weight vacuum cleaners are better. A comparison of the two kinds of cleaners leads to the discovery that both have their pros and cons. It all finally boils down to your convenience. While the light ones are good for people who cannot carry heavy weights, the heavy ones are more efficient and are generally used by construction people rather than for residential purposes. Before buying that all effective cleaning tool, remember to take a look at the effectiveness, power, weight, price, cost of the bag replacement and the warranty. It is better to pay once rather than again and again and court trouble. Author Bio: Vac Master offers wet and dry vacuum cleaners, heavy duty vacuum cleaners and more vacuum cleaners on best prices.
