Top Vacuum

https://maidsinamericanow.comTo not complete reprise a previous cleaning blog post I wrote about how vacuums work I’ll summarize what really counts in a vacuum:

  • CFM – Cubic Feet Per Minute is ultimately the most important factor in how well a vacuum picks up dirt/debris
  • Clog Resistance – Important but unfortunately most vacuums compromise this with small hoses and too many twists/turns to move debris into vacuum chamber
  • Durability – This is subjective but based on our experience there are several brands we will never consider

It’s impossible to give one vacuum the “top vacuum” award as one is a great all purpose and the other, not as flexible, is a non-clogging workhorse but not as suitable for multiple tasks such as attachment based vacuuming.

Best pure performer:

Sanitaire EUKSC9180B DuraLux Upright

This vacuum has a fantastic CFM and is very hard to clog.  It’s great for commercial cleaning or home cleaning for heavy applications.

Best all-around performer:

Shark Apex Self Cleaning

This vacuum is very flexible with a great pet hair brush roll and low price.  It’s best suited for medium duty and can clog so be ready to take it apart as needed.

Top Sprayer

Everybody that cleans needs something to spray cleaning chemicals that have to be mixed up / diluted vs already mixed.   We really don’t mess with squirt bottles anymore as a cleaning company and strongly suggest you ditch the junky bottles and go straight to a pump sprayer.

There are several pump sprayers out there but for the purpose of this article I’m going to rate the most durable for the price with good gallon per minute flow when trying to actually squirt it.  The GPM becomes very important when cleaning larger areas that require more flushing like hard floors.


Best pure performer:

B&G Industrial Sprayer

This amazing and durable pump sprayer cranks out 55 GPM of fluid so you’ll never need to worry about not getting enough saturation for any job.  It’s stainless steel and will last a long time.
