Particularly effective on hard floors and hard-to-reach carpeted areas, many canister vacuum cleaners are capable of cleaning your entire home from floor to ceiling. These low-profile vacuums feature rolling dirt collection tanks, flexible suction hoses, and wide nozzles with rotating bristles. Along with a powerful motor, these components remove dirt and allergens from multiple surfaces, including carpets, tile floors, hardwood floors, upholstery, and rugs. Typically, canister vacuums are lighter in weight and easier to push than upright models.
Most models feature an attached tool caddy that holds a number of included cleaning accessories, such as dusting brushes, crevice tools, and stair-cleaning turbo heads. Look for other features like HEPA filtration for allergen elimination, dirt sensors, bagged or bagless options, and suction adjustment to help make your cleaning routine more convenient and effective.
