Best Vacuums for Hardwood Floors
Here at Bob’s Original Sweeper Shop, we suggest that our customers sweep using the best vacuum for hardwood floors. Finding the best hard floor vacuum can help you preserve the finish and beauty of your hardwood floors.
When it comes to everyday cleaning, sweeping can be harder on your hardwood floors than you think. Brooms can leave micro-scratches in the finish. And the wrong vacuum can also cause surface damage. Preserve your beautiful flooring surfaces. Look for these features as you shop the best vacuums for hardwood floors:
Soft Rubber Wheels
You want to make sure that when you are pushing and pulling your vacuum across your hardwood floors, there is no scuffing or scratching. Canister type vacuums should have swivel castors with rubber coated wheels. A good hard surface upright vacuum will have small wheels in the front of the nozzle tray to prevent it from scratching your wood.
Brushroll On/Off Switch
When vacuuming your hardwood floor, a spinning brushroll will scatter dirt around the room. That’s why a vacuum without a brushroll or with an on/off switch is best. The Riccar R40 Premium Series or Riccar Prima Canister Vacuum are both great examples of a vacuum with this feature!
Natural Bristle Floor Tool
A floor attachment tool with soft, natural made bristles is best. These bristles prevent scratching as they glide across your floor.
Be sure that your vacuum has a height adjustment option for bare floors or can be manually turned to a very low profile.
