Choose the Right Wet Dry Vacuum
Before you invest in a wet dry vacuum, determine your needs. Ask questions like:
- Where will you use it?
- What would be the average duration of use?
- What kind of things would you pick up with the wet dry vacuum?
Answer these basic questions to get a basic idea. Then, assess certain technical characteristics to compare the various models. Here are some of the parameters you must take into consideration.
The power performance is determined through these two main indicators:
- Water lift: represents the suction force and is measured in mmH2O, mbar, or kPa.
- Airflow: this expresses the air volume intake and is measured in m3/h or in l/s.
Wet dry vacuums come with different motor power. The power of the motor depends on the type and number of motors and is expressed in Watts, kW, or in HP. Choosing the motor power would depend on the application and the amount of material to be vacuumed.
Another important parameter that you must take into consideration is the noise level. Although this is not strictly linked to efficiency, a wet dry vacuum with a high noise level would take a toll on your comfort.
Wet dry vacuums come in different shapes and sizes - all with different benefits. Some offer great maneuverability, while others excel in power deliverability. Depending on your needs, choose the one that best fits the intended use.
Almost all the latest commercial vacuum cleaners are equipped with high-efficiency filters to ensure that collected dirt is not released into the environment.
Some of the most common accessories new wet dry vacuums come with are:
- Flat lance: helps to collect dirt from narrow grooves and hard-to-reach corners.
- Round brush: helps to vacuum delicate surfaces.
- Wet brush/Squeegee: helps to lift liquids.
- Double use/universal brush: helps clean hard floors, rugs, and carpets.
