Carpet and Floor Cleaners Can Help Keep Allergies in Check
Choosing the right cleaning equipment goes a long way toward keeping a home's floors in the best possible condition. A good vacuum cleaner can remove pet dander, dirt and other debris from carpets, hard floors and upholstery. When carpet is stained, steam cleaners can go a little deeper and pull out the substances a vacuum can't reach. With wet/dry floor cleaners, such as steam mops, homeowners can remove dirt from floors, disinfect them and dry them all with the same appliance. Whatever carpet and floor cleaner you need, Sears has you covered.
For daily and weekly cleaning of your carpets, vacuums come in a wide array of models including upright vacuums, central vacuums and handhelds. Lightweight options are available for those who want to make easy work of housecleaning.
Upright Vacuums. These appliances are self-contained, which means that the power supply, canister or bag, hose and motor are all in one location. Some upright vacuums can be used on both bare floors and carpet. For smaller jobs, lightweight models are also available.
Central Vacuums. A central vacuum is an internal cleaning system installed as a semi-permanent fixture in the home. These vacuums remove dust, debris and allergens from the home using suction ports placed in strategic locations throughout the structure. Central vacuums eliminate the need to lug a heavy machine around, and they require less frequent emptying than upright models.
Get the most bang for your buck by investing in a model that does double duty; cleaning surface debris as well as those stains that go deep.
Steam Cleaners. These cleaning tools use carpet shampoos to remove spots and stains. After shampooing, the appliance removes dirty water from the floor using high velocity suction. Premium models often include more brushes for effective shampooing, as well as internal heaters to raise the temperature of the cleaning solution. Some models can be used on both carpeted floors and hard surfaces.
Steam Mops. Steam mops are smaller cleaning appliances that disinfect floors without the use of chemicals. Though most models are intended for use on hard floors, some steam mops are also suitable for use on carpet and upholstery. Some models are also capable of dry cleaning, and a few models allow users to switch between steam cleaning and cleaning with a chemical solution.
Hard Floor Buffers. Hard floor buffers allow homeowners to polish, buff and wax hard surfaces. Some models can also be used to clean hard floors before buffing or polishing. Hard floor buffers are ideal for homes with hard flooring in most rooms.
High quality cleaning equipment keeps homes free from dust, dirt and allergens. Good floor cleaners can also remove stains and keep the home's floors looking new. Some homeowners may benefit from purchasing more than one appliance. Cleaners that are ideal for hard floors are not always effective on carpet, and vice versa. To choose the best cleaning tools, a homeowner should consider the types of flooring in the home, the frequency of stains and the home's square footage. Homeowners should also consider other factors, such as the noise level of the machine and whether it requires frequent emptying or maintenance.
