Can your vacuum damage your floors?


Our Guide to Buying the Best Vacuum Cleaner for Your Flooring 


How using the right vacuum cleaner can save your floors.


If you’re cleaning household items with your vacuum cleaner, you should read this. Are you using your vacuum to clean blinds, upholstery, pet hair, or kids messes? Is your current vacuum the right model to handle the items you clean without damaging them? If your answer is “I’m not sure” or “no,” you could actually be causing damage to the surfaces you’re vacuuming. For example, if you vacuum  hardwood floors with a carpeting head, or vacuum delicate area rugs  with an aggressive power head, you decrease the lifespan of your flooring.

Without the proper vacuum and attachments for your floor, you aren’t receiving the full benefits of what a vacuum should be doing for you. The right vacuum will exceed your needs, and clean surfaces without damaging them.

Gone are the days of being just satisfied with your vacuum. You can now purchase the best vacuum for your specific needs. Take our vacuum match quiz.

Vacuum Cleaners and Flooring Warranties


An important thing to note when buying a new vacuum cleaner is that some flooring companies will void your warranty if you use a certain type of vacuum. Many people don’t know this until it’s far too late. Make sure the vacuum you have, or want to buy, will comply with your flooring warranty. Research which kind of brush roll or attachment head is recommended for your flooring. Your warranty will also mention which vacuum attachments are not covered. Don’t be alarmed; most warranty concerns can be solved by changing your  vacuum head or attachment. 

If you have any questions, we can help walk you through your flooring warranty, and recommend the right vacuum for your needs.
