The Importance Vacuum Attachments
You may have bought a super powerful vacuum cleaner with great filtration efficiency, but without the right vacuum attachment, it will simply not reach its maximum potential.
The same goes for cheaper cleaners with lower air speed; the right attachment will lead its performance to a much higher level.
Either way, it would be great if you could just pick up a top rated machine and use one attachment for miraculous results, but there is more to it than that. You just need a little bit of extra knowledge in order to really create those amazing cleaning effects.
The Essential Cleaning Accessories
The first thing you need to think about when it comes to vacuum attachments is what type of cleaning to you need to do, so there is not one ideal set – it all depends on the requirements of your home.
For example, if you have a pet, upholstery, curtains or stairs in your house, you should adjust your cleaner with the proper accessory that is suited for those specific cleaning demands.
In this sense, here are some attachments that can either come in a standard kit with your cleaner or, if not and you have the furniture that requires them, you should definitely purchase them additionally:
The Upholstery Brush – Ideal for working soap into furniture or shampooing carpets.
- The Vacuum Brush – If you have pets or need to clean any kind of hair out of furniture that is covered in some kind of fabric.
- The Extension Wand – great for cleaning underneath or between objects such as refrigerator or sofa, while it can also provide extended reach to other vacuum attachments
- Hard Floor Tool – optimal for cleaning hard floors with bristles that prevent scratching.
Beyond Basics And Exactly What You Need
What I personally really appreciate when it comes to these added cleaning elements, are those “non-traditional” attachments, meaning those that are really specific in their purpose and fulfill that very purpose to a great extent.
I was so happy to discover that there were attachments made for cleaning the very objects, which for me were most difficult and demanding, such as the ceiling fan. I never knew there was even such a thing as “the ceiling fan attachment”!
I used to think it was the most miserable thing ever when I had to clean the blinds, for example, while the whole time there was an extension out there made just for that task and there are even separate attachments for vertical and mini blinds!
Bringing Ease Into Your Cleaning Experience
When you buy a vacuum, you are only about half way to setting up the perfect cleaning machine for your house or apartment.
What is great is that most extensions fit all cleaners, at least if they are made by the same company.
Think about your environment and, maybe even more importantly, think about the objects that you hate cleaning because they are hard to reach. These never appear to be spotless – I am sure there is an accessory made just for them that will make your life so much easier.
