Choosing the right type of commercial vacuum cleaners can be daunting. With a wide range of different makes, models and styles to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? In order to make the right choice, it is important to base your selection on your requirements. Where will you be using it? How many hours a day will it be used? What will it suck up?


After answering these questions, you will have a better idea of the type of commercial vacuum cleaners you need. Other factors such as motor HP/Watts/Amps, suction power, dB level, collection method and filtration should also be considered.


The following are the main criteria to look for.


- Motor HP.

The power of the motor may be measured in horsepower, amps or watts. Depending on the type of motor and the number of motors in the vacuum cleaner will determine if it is suitable for your particular application.


- Suction power.

The suction power of a vacuum cleaner is indicated by two main factors. Water lift and airflow. Water lift represents the suction power it can produce to vacuum liquids or heavy substances. Airflow represents the amount of air produced by the vacuum cleaner, etc.

- Decibel level.

The noise generated by the vacuum is expressed in dB (decibels). The amount of noise produced by a vacuum cleaner is independent of its efficiency, but the environment in which you intend to use it may make it unsuitable. For example, you do not want to use a noisy vacuum cleaner in a hospital or library.


- Collection methods.

Depending on your preferences and how much dust and debris you will be vacuuming, you can choose between bagless or bagged collection. A vacuum cleaner with a large collection bag needs to be emptied less frequently than a bagless hoover with a small collection bag.


- Filtration.

Every vacuum cleaner has some sort of filtration function built in. Whether it's just the dust collection bag or a series of individual filters, the filtration system in the vacuum should be able to handle everything you might encounter. If you are working in a commercial environment, it is wise to choose a vacuum cleaner with at least one HEPA filter.


All in all, choose the most efficient, powerful and robust commercial vacuum cleaners that not only does the job it is intended to do, but has a good reputation for being long-lasting and durable, even if it has to do some punishing work.
