If you are considering buying a Bosch vacuum, you will have eight different cylinder cleaners to choose from. All eight can be used to vacuum both hard flooring and carpets, as well as upholstery and curtains. However, the cleaners differ, so it is important to take a number of factors into consideration when deciding which to buy.
Cleaning with a Bosch vacuum
Floor cleaning All eight Bosch vacuum cleaners are efficient floor cleaners. They are equipped with a floor cleaning head which can be used on both carpets and hard surfaces. A foot operated lever lowers a brush for hard floors and raises it again for carpets and rugs. However, several models are also equipped with a turbo brush designed to ease the task of removing pet hair and other ingrained dirt from carpeting. These are: - "Home Professional" - "Power Pet Hair and Carpet" - "Pet Hair and Carpet". Cleaning radius Two of Bosch's vacuum cleaners - The "Pro Energy BSGL3126G" and the "All Rounder" - offer a cleaning radius of 10 metres. "Power" and "Power Pet and Carpets" have a cleaning radius of 11 metres. The "Pro Energy BSGL5126GB" has a 13 metre cleaning radius as does the "Home Professional" and the "BSGL5225GB Pet Hair & Carpet" vacuum cleaner. Above floor cleaning All Bosch vacuums are equipped with a crevice nozzle and an upholstery nozzle. Both are used to clean living room suites, stairs, curtains and other soft furnishings. Only the "BSG8PRO1GB Home Professional" is equipped with a furniture dusting brush. However, these can be purchased in vacuum supply shops. You can also purchase an adaptor which allows you to use tools from your old cleaner with your new Bosch vacuum.
Dust capacity The "BSG8PRO1GB Home Professional" holds six litres of dust. The "BSGL5PROGB Home Professional"; the "BSGL5225GB Pet, Hair and Carpet" and "BSGL5126GB Pro Energy" hold 4.5 litres of dust. The "All Rounder" and the "BSGL3126GB Pro Energy" hold four litres of dust. The "Power" and "Power Pet Hair and Carpet" vacuums are bagless vacuums and hold three litres of dust. Bags and filters Bosch bags are self sealing. When you remove them from the cleaner, the bag entrance is covered, preventing dust escaping. Bosch vacuums use a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter system. Conclusion The best Bosch vacuum for your home appears to be governed by two main factors: 1. The size of your home This will decide how large a cleaning radius and how big a dust capacity you need 2. Type of flooring If you have a lot of carpet, a Bosch vacuum with a turbo brush may be best; bagged or bagless - the decision is up to you.
