Broom vacuums for Berber carpets have been hitting hard for a few years. This development has benefited especially from battery improvements, driven by the spectacular development in the mobile phone market, and the hopeful advance of electric cars.
Thus, they have been able to manufacture light, powerful, and very handy models, which delight those who seek comfort.
ADVANTAGES OF BROOM VACUUMS FOR BERBER CARPETS
In recent years, we have evolved from sweeper-type devices, which basically consisted of a roller that was rotating, so that the dust stayed attached to it, to true vacuum cleaners, which in addition to having a system similar to the one described above, they also suck.
Next, we will see in detail the advantages that can make us opt for a model of this type:
Broom vacuums for Berber carpets are, on average, significantly lighter than their sled counterparts. Its weight can be between 2 and 3 kilograms, compared to 5-6 for classic vacuum cleaners.
In general, they are easy to handle devices, both due to their weight and design. Its handle is usually long enough for us to maintain a proper posture when vacuuming.
They also have good maneuverability, as they have a good working angle, both vertically and horizontally. They are quite comfortable for vacuuming under beds and are easily moved with one hand.
In addition, most of these devices are battery-operated, so we will not have problems with the cable.
With a device of this type, we can move comfortably when vacuuming, even if there are some obstacles, while with a sled-type vacuum cleaner it becomes more complicated.
However, from MiAspiradora we recommend that you clear the areas where you are going to vacuum as much as possible, to avoid blows that could damage our cleaning tool.
In addition, it is easier to store, since they take up very little space, and most have a parking function that makes it possible to leave them standing.
Today, some of these devices have enough power to do a good cleaning. In addition, some have various accessories and have the possibility of disassembling a part to use them as a hand vacuum cleaner, which is very interesting for some jobs (for example, for cleaning the car).
As a compendium of all the previous characteristics, it can be noted that broom vacuums for Berber carpets cleaners are comfortable since they allow us to clean various surfaces in a short time.
Therefore, they are a highly appreciated alternative by people who want to clean their homes daily.
DISADVANTAGES OF BROOM VACUUMS FOR BERBER CARPETS
All these advantages are highly valued by some people, who will opt for broom vacuums for Berber carpets. But not everything is positive, perhaps you should consider these inconveniences, before deciding.
Today there are models with remarkable power. Some are even advertised as having the equivalent power of a sled vacuum cleaner of the same brand.
However, some people may find that the strength provided by these devices is not sufficient to meet their needs.
Households with many rugs and / or carpets, with pets that shed hair … should opt for a more powerful model, or consider purchasing a sled vacuum cleaner.
This is one of its advantages, as it provides great maneuverability and makes it very comfortable.
However, it is also a handicap, since, to use it, we need to have it charged (if it is not sufficiently charged, its effectiveness will decrease).
Modern lithium batteries offer great performance and no memory effect. However, performance may decrease over time.
Also, battery life is usually not too long. Some models advertise a duration of around 1 hour (more than enough to clean an average home, even more than once).
In practice, the battery usually lasts less, since, in part, we will use it in maximum power mode, which consumes much more.
On the other hand, some models require very long charging times, greater than 10 hours.
- Dust trapping capacity
Its capacity is, on average, less than that of sled-type vacuum cleaners, although it depends a lot on the model (I said, there is everything) and the type of dirt that you want to vacuum.
By having the rotating brush, dirt such as dust or hair is usually collected well. However, other elements, such as pieces of paper, crumbs, breadcrumbs, or talcum powder, for example, can be problematic for some appliances.
The ability to trap dust not only depends on its power or the design of the rotating brush but what matters to us is also that it stays inside.
For this reason, some models like Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead, the best example of a broom vacuum for Berber carpet already incorporate HEPA filters, capable of filtering particles smaller than one micron. To give you an idea, the thickness of an adult human hair is about 100 microns.
The efficiency of these filters is measured based on how many particles of this size they let out into the air (the scale of HEPA filters goes from H10 to H14, from less to more efficient).
