While there are many types of vacuum cleaners available, only some may be suited to for your living situation. The factors most likely to influence your purchasing decision are the size of your home and the type of flooring you have. If you have allergies or pets who shed, you will want a powerful upright or barrel vacuum. Which type of filter/s you choose, and whether you opt for a model with a bag or a bin mostly come down to personal preference.
