Backpack vacuums are lightweight machines that strap to your back during use. They are very portable in design offering many advantages over larger upright and canister style cleaners. You typically get enough attachments for all floor types, as well as tools for cleaning any ‘above the floor’ surface you would encounter in a typical home (or office building). Most people are not aware that you can actually get the indoor environment just as clean as with more typical full sized canisters but in a much different way. The only surface it will struggle with is thick, high pile carpets so if your home contains them you will need another cleaner to at least supplement this one.
The first generation backpack vacuum was quite basic in design, without much in the way of filtration or power. It was a good choice for quick cleaning of office buildings where you weren’t necessarily worried about getting every little dust particle up. However, many things have changed since then and a lot of technology is built into the current generation. Now you can find these vacuums outfitted with a HEPA filter, quick sealing dust bags, and long electric cords so you are getting the best performance you need for even the largest of spaces.
