Different Types of Backpack Vacuums
Today many things have been produced that can make cleaning jobs much easier. A backpack style vacuum helps when you have a large area of things such as stairs or corners where you may need to lift the vacuum. Floor style models make this very awkward and difficult.
The backpack style you wear on your back just like you would a backpack and the hose extends around to reach the areas that you need to reach. There are different types, but all have the same basic use and construction. Heavy duty models are intended for commercial use with stronger motors and more powerful suction. In addition they have larger canisters so that you do not have to empty them as often as you would with a home model.
When considering this style of vacuum you will want to take into consideration the weight of the machine. Because the unit is carried on your back, those with back problems will need a lightweight model so as to not aggravate an injury. Additionally you want to ensure the hose is long enough for the purpose intended. For example, if you are planning to use it to reach into high corners, the hose needs to have an extension that will remain stiff when extended from your hand so it is able to get into those high corners. Additionally these models are useful in areas where there are multiple levels. For example, if you are cleaning a school that has two or three levels, you would need to lift and carry a standard vacuum up the stairs. With a backpack style you just walk up the stairs.
