Lightweight upright vacuum cleaners are more popular then ever. Advances in technologies and designs means you can now get a lightweight upright vacuum cleaner with many of the features you'd expect from a larger model.
The following reasons explain why these vacuum cleaners are the preferred choice for many
Although many people aren't aware, upright and cylinder vacuum cleaners were originally designed for different purposes. Upright vacuum cleaners were designed for vacuuming carpeted floors in cooler climates (such as the UK) while cylinder vacuum cleaners were designed for vacuuming hard floors in hotter climates (such as Spain). As a result, not all cylinder vacuum cleaners come with powerful rotating brushes.
If you have a large house to vacuum, or would like to vacuum the stairs in one go, make sure your new vacuum has enough hose and lead length. It's rather frustrating when your vacuum won't quite reach into the corner and you have to go back to the power point and replug into another one.
