Portable vacuum cleaners are highly useful due to their convenience of use and portability. However, some are quite expensive and not as powerful as traditional vacuum cleaners. Nonetheless, portable vacuum cleaners mean less back bending when cleaning and taking less time to clean as well.
Here are some of the different types of portable vacuum cleaners and their uses:
Vacuums for Cleaning Wet Spills
Generally known as handheld vacuums with the ability to make wet surfaces dry, they operate as one of the most sophisticated models with respect to cleaning liquid spillage. These handhelds can clean a majority of surfaces ranging from hard shiny surfaces to carpets. They use their working mechanism to be strong enough to suck in moisture from fabric as well.
Specifically designed to function as a cleanup tool for automotive and vehicle parts such as seats and other items covered with upholstery. Handheld car vacuums are small, light in weight, and most of them come equipped with a 12-volt charger which comes in handy when the car is running, allowing them to recharge their batteries when connected. These portable vacuums can also be used within the house in situations concerning the cleaning of upholstery and stairs.
Handheld versions of vacuums with filtration capabilities are all the hype. With technologies incorporated in them such as a HEPA filter can make them ideal for vacuuming allergens and other contaminants from carpets and other objects within the room. Common filters used in these types of vacuums can range from HEPA to electrostatic. Electrostatic filters with a portable vacuum allow for trapping fine dust particles through electrostatic charges.
Many such vacuums often trade high suction power for battery life. In order to make the area clean from larger debris like broken glass material or ceramics, they might deploy 15 to 18 volt machinery. Some models of a portable vacuum come with customizable speeds to save up on battery life. Since they use a lot of battery at an extremely fast rate, they are often operable only for short period of times before they need to be charged again.
Stick Styled Cleaners
A new introduction to the market are the portable upright vacuum cleaners representing a similar look to the standard vacuum cleaner but having a built in battery and being cordless all the same. An example is the Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner. These brand new additions are as strong as 3-times any other portable vacuums. Some of them also deploy the use of activated-carbon filters to add on the cleaning aspect of the device.
Many portable portable vacuums are now specially designed to feature for cleaning your pets only. Pet dander and fur can cause considerable damage for those living with loved ones having an allergy or sickness. Therefore, keeping in mind this dire need, many manufacturers are now producing units that are specifically designed to handle similar task to keep the homes virtually clean from dander from our lovable and adorable animal companions.
