Benefits of Owning a Backpack Vacuum

Those who have small homes or who prefer something lighter will definitely find both the canister type and the upright type vacuum cleaners quite impractical to buy. Thankfully, there is one other type of vacuum cleaner that will quite perfectly fit the bill: a backpack vacuum.

Backpack Portability: While both the canister and the upright type vacuum cleaners need to be hauled around, the backpack type can simply be carried like a backpack. And since it is designed exactly for this purpose, it is not heavy nor is it difficult to manage like a canister or an upright vacuum. Just imagine yourself walking around the house or even your office with a backpack, with the sole difference that your backpack comes with a cleaning brush.

Due to this, the backpack vacuum is considered as one of the most practical appliances you can use at home or at the office and also as one of the most ingenious cleaning appliances on the market.

Backpack vacuums users maintain a more neutral posture compared to extreme arm and leg extensions using an upright.

Ergonomic advantage of Backpacks: Aside from its portability, a backpack vacuum cleaner is also healthier to use. Since you don’t have to bend down, you won’t suffer from any neck or back strain while using it. Just walk normally in the proper posture and clean away.

Backpack Versatility: Aside from its ease of use, a backpack vacuum is also very flexible. Since it is easier to carry around, there are more things you can clean with it. And if you buy from a brand with a good selection of tools and attachments that can expand the uses of your vacuum cleaner, you will be able to do even more with just one appliance. As long as you use the right tools, you can safely and conveniently clean vents, blinds, ceiling fans, cabinets, shelves, curtains, tables, and even hard-to-reach nooks and crevices. If you’re using another kind of vacuum cleaner, these spots and areas can really be a challenge to clean.

While it is true that there are some limits as to the power capacity of such small vacuum cleaners, you’ll be surprised to know that, with the help of technology, many backpack vacuum cleaners in the market are actually designed for commercial use. By using materials that are durable, heavy duty, yet are lightweight, a backpack vacuum can actually clean deeply and thoroughly despite their limited size.

Keep in mind, however, that not all backpack vacuum cleaners are created equal. Thus, it is true that some may not be that powerful. It all boils down, therefore, to choosing the correct product or at least one that matches your needs. While shopping, always check the capacity of the motor. To be sure, look for one with a motor capacity of 7 amps or higher and preferably with a minimum static lift of 75 inches. Anything lower than these specifications will already point to a weaker cleaning capability. Other factors that you should also consider include the airflow (CFM rating), the length of the hose (which determines the overall flexibility you will get out of the vacuum cleaner), and the availability and variety of tools and attachments.

Tackle allergens: Most of the top models including the Dustcare backpack vacuum cleaners come with double filtration technology or HEPA filtration technology. HEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air and HEPA filters have the ability to remove 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 micrometers (µm) in diameter. This type of filter is composed of fiberglass that varies in diameter from 0.5 to 2 micron. This fiberglass filter acts as a sieve and catches even the smallest of particulate matters. The result is that you will have an allergy free and healthy environment at office and home.
