With most people, a vacuum cleaner isn’t really an

inspiring machine. If you don’t care about how it

works, then you probably don’t want to vacuum to start

with. At the same time, no one wants to live in a

pig sty or dirty home even.

These days however, things have began to change for

the better, and people’s attitudes are changing as

well. Vacuum cleaners are becoming interesting and

it’s all thanks to James Dyson, the inventor of the

Dyson vacuum cleaner.

All thanks to Dyson, vacuum cleaners have taken on

a personality and life of their own. These very

same tactics are even employed by the likes of

Apple to successfully ploy their iMacs and iPods to

the masses have now been used with tremendous

results with vacuum cleaners.

Now, let’s take a look at the decision that faces

you when buying a flashy vacuum cleaner. First of

all, you have the choice between the upright or

canister versions. The upright style of vacuum

cleaners will require you to use them in the

traditional push and pull fashion, although the

latest vacuum from Tyson, the DC15, has even turned

this technology on its head with “Ball Technology”

that will let you glide around your home with the

greatest of ease – in any direction you please.

Canister vacuum cleaners on the other hand come

with a hose attachment for great control and

flexibility, as you can quickly and easily get

to all of the hard to reach places. There isn’t

really a lot of difference between the two, and

it’s mainly down to your personal preference,

even though the upright vacuum is best suited to

larger carpets.

You should also consider the power of the motor

and efficiency of the filtration system as well.

Those that suffer from allergies will want to

pay close attention to the filtration. Dyson for

one has been very successful by marketing the

benefits of its patented “Cyclone” technology,

which doesn’t use a bag nor does it ever get

clogged up.

If you feeling really daring and adventurous and

want to stay ahead of the curve, you could go

for one of the very popular robotic vacuum cleaners

such as the ZA01 from Electrolux or the cheaper

iRobot from Roomba. While you amuse yourself or

do other things, the robot will move around your

home on it’s own will, vacuuming your entire

home until it is spotless. The robot even has

the technology and intelligence to return to the

base when it is running low on battery power and

recharge itself.

If you want to be different and unique, a flashy

vacuum cleaner is the way to go. There are many

different models and types to choose from, from

cheap vacuums to those that cost hundreds of

dollars. All you have to do is meet your creative

side halfway and let the fun begin!
