Read the full Shark Navigator Lift-Away NV352 Vacuum review. Here is a vacuum cleaner that doesn't limit your cleaning abilities.
Today’s technology has revolutionized almost every aspect of our lives. From how we communicate, how we work, how we prepare food, how we entertain, and even how we earn. Technology keeps reminding us everyday that it’s here and it’s making our lives more convenient and one great thing about it is it’s also helping us not everyone enjoys doing – household chores.
Admit it, not many people enjoy cleaning your own space or room, much less the whole house. But what if cleaning the house isn’t as tedious as it was before? Thanks to technology alright, you can definitely save time and energy with today’s cleaning devices. And one of our beloved cleaning machines is of course the vacuum cleaner. Not only does it suck up all the dirt and dust and help clean those hard-to-reach areas, you won’t ever have to worry about your back breaking or body aches for a week.
Now, let’s discuss the two most common types of vacuum cleaners and their differences – Upright vacuum cleaners or Canister vacuum cleaners. Which do you think would best fit your needs?
Upright Vacuum Cleaner Vs. Canister Vacuum Cleaner
An upright Vacuum Cleaner’s motor and suction head are both placed in the same unit which you need to push. On the other hand, the cleaning nozzle of the Canister Vacuum Cleaner is placed at the end of a wand which is then linked to the vacuum unit through a hose. The unit comprises of a filter, engine and dust bags. It also has wheels so you can drag it around.
What’s great about the traditional upright vacuum cleaner is that first and foremost, it is cheaper compared to the canister type. It is also more efficient when cleaning thick rugs and carpets since it uses a motorized brush. When you want to transition between a bare floor and a carpet, you can easily control it with your feet.
Another good thing about an upright vacuum cleaner is that you won’t have to bend your back (unless of course if you use a hose attachment) and the storage is more convenient as you don’t have to worry about any accessory to put away. Yes, you can easily operate this type of vacuum cleaner without long preparations. Additionally, upright vacuum cleaners have wider cleaning paths as well.
On the other hand, Canister Vacuum Cleaners are considered to be more powerful as they have better suction and flow-rate which results to faster cleaning especially on bare floors. These cleaning machines are easier to maneuver and are more practical when cleaning the stairs and hard-to-reach areas such as above the ground or under or behind furniture due to its hose. It’s also easy to operate as you only need to move its wand, not the vacuum cleaner itself. Additionally, you can add more helpful tools to it such as upholstery brush, crevice nozzle and even a brush best suited for cleaning carpets. You can conveniently change the nozzle to whichever fits your cleaning needs.
Now that we have established the two types of vacuum cleaners and their differences, let’s now review one of the most popular upright vacuum cleaners that can be converted into a canister-type available today, Shark Navigator Lift-Away NV352 Vacuum Cleaner.
