Best Commercial Vacuum Cleaners 2017

As you probably know, commercial vacuum cleaners have increasingly become popular in the vacuum market. Why does this happen? Simply, more and more consumers understand that compared with traditional upright or canister models, commercial vacuum cleaners are much easier to use for cleaning purposes. Best commercial vacuum cleaners will definitely assure these features: good suction, maneuverability, and affordability. My post today will provide you with such outstanding vacuums. And I believe that you will be satisfied with at least one of them whether your house has many stairs, awkward corners or other hard-to-reach areas.

Typical features of best commercial vacuum

First of all, when you decide to buy a commercial vacuum, there are a lot of options for you such as upright, canister and backpack. You can rely on your needs and your budget to pick the best commercial vacuum for yourself. Commercial vacuums also have attachments and tools to meet various requirements of users. What’s more, suction and power are remarkable characteristics that users usually look at before determine to purchase the vacuum or not.

Not surprisingly, a fundamental feature of commercial vacuums is ease of usability. Producers pay much attention to this factor by designing a variety of tools for their vacuums such as dust brushes, crevice tools, upholstery tools, additional wands, specialty floor tools, etc. All of those attachments are equipped for more effective cleaning in difficult-to-reach areas as well as different types of floors, for example, hard floors or carpets.

In the following parts, I will give you more details of 5 best commercial vacuum cleaners I have already discovered.

5 Best Commercial Vacuum 2017

I have also received a great number of positive feedbacks from customers saying that the vacuum does a very good job in office buildings. Firstly, its weight is only 8 pounds so that users can use little effort to carry and maneuver.
Secondly, this model is designed with Endurolife Permanent Belt, so you will never have to change it. Also, I extremely love the two Speed QuickSwitch function because low-speed is good for tile/wood floor cleaning and high-speed helps me vacuum rugs a lot. However, the downside is that no light on the front of the vacuum makes it challenging to see and clean at dark corners. Read more Oreck Commercial U2000RB2L-1 LEED-Compliant Upright Vacuum review.

Among a variety of commercial vacuums in the vacuum cleaner market, this Sanitaire SC889A Commercial Quiet Upright 2 Speed is a very impressing representative. In terms of good points, the suction is tremendous, and the beater bar does a great job on carpets. Additionally, the machine has a good noise level which is much quieter than other commercial vacuums. What I like most about this vacuum is that parts and attachments of this vacuum are inexpensive to replace. I don’t mean that they will easily break, but I want to emphasize the convenience when you are in unlucky situations.

With the Hoover C2401 Shoulder Vac commercial backpack vacuum cleaner, you will definitely vacuum in comfort without any pain. Many customers have shown their great satisfaction with this model due to the benefits it brings about. First, the vacuum is very powerful. Obviously, it isn’t a high-priced commercial vacuum but I’m quite confident that if you buy it, you will have the same power and effectiveness as more pricey ones. Nevertheless, there are still bad points that you should be aware of. Although having a great suction power, the vacuum doesn’t really work well on carpets or rugs. Therefore, I just recommend that you should use it on wood or tile floors. You can see more Hoover Commercial C2401 Shoulder Vac Pro Backpack Vacuum review.

I’m sure that after owning it, you will be happy because of its amazing suction and maneuverability. Specifically, the outstanding feature of this vac is the ability to clean a large area quickly. It can deal with chairs, table legs, etc., easily, helping you clean the entire floor of your house perfectly. Unfortunately, users still have some complaints about this model. Notably, it is too heavy and bulky for you to use at home. As a result, I highly recommend you to employ it at your office buildings with hardwood floor only.
