Don’t purchase a Vacuum Cleaner before you read this

Cleaning dirt and tiny particles from some surfaces may be quite hectic due to their nature. When such difficulties arise, vacuum cleaners come into the picture. However, you have to know how to use the cleaner like any other equipment. This article focuses on enlightening you about the product. 

A vacuum cleaner is a device that people use to remove dust and tiny particles from surfaces through suction. The dust is collected in a dust bag, and the user disposes of it later.

The vacuum cleaners are available in many models ranging from battery-operated ones to huge ones that can handle several hundred liters of dust before emptying. 

The performance of a vacuum cleaner can be evaluated using parameters such as suction, input power, output power, and peak horsepower.


Suction refers to the maximum pressure difference the cleaner can create. The higher the suction power, the more effective the cleaner. A vacuum cleaner can make a pressure difference of 20kPa which means it can lower the pressure inside the horse from the normal atmospheric pressure to 20 kilos Pascal’s.

Input power

Input power refers to the power consumption rate of the cleaner. The rating is usually indicated in watts. The more the input power, the more suction the cleaner should create.

Output power

Output power refers to the airflow that results when the cleaner converts the input power to air. Output power is measured in air watts; the word philosophy clarifies that output power is not input power. The more the output power, the better the performance.

Peak Horsepower

Peak horsepower is the maximum output power that a motor can produce. Therefore, you cannot directly measure the peak horsepower of a vacuum cleaner. You have to remove the fans and calculate horsepower using the necessary parameters.

 Initial price

Like any other commodity, the initial price matters significantly. Vacuum cleaner price in Kenya may vary slightly from one vendor to another. The variation may be based on type, size, or both.


There are extra tools that come together with a vacuum cleaner. The knowledge of using these tools is equally important.

The attachments include a crevice tool, dusting tool, ceiling fan tool, mattress tool, pet grooming tool, turbo brush, extension wand, and upholstery tool.

The crevice tool cleans tight spots like vents, corners, baseboards, and sofa cushions. 

The dusting tool has long and soft bristles and whisks, lampshades, blinds, bookcases, framed art, and windowsills.

The upholstery tool is comprehensive and has a fabric strip for coaxing dust particles from chairs, mattresses, and sofa cushions.

You might be asking yourself whether the horse pipe can reach the hard-to-reach areas such as the ceiling of your house. The vacuum cleaner comes with an extension wand that you can use to extend your horse pipe to reach the places. 

In summary, dust and tiny particles should not be a problem anymore. The vacuum cleaner cleans all dust: leaving the surfaces very clean. You should be able to identify the cleaner that best meets your needs. Source:
