Incredibly, the vacuum cleaner was invented before electric power supplies for homes by using bellows-, cranks- and manual vacuum cleaners completing the task since the 1860s. Vacuum cleaners equipped with electric motors came to market as the first domestic electricity supply and production around the middle during the late 19th century. They weren’t remarkably inexpensive, portable, or even effective in sucking dirt.
Many inventions during the 20th century claimed to ease cleaning; however, none took off. Then, in 1907, a cleaner from a department store named James Spangler created an electric vacuum cleaner bag to serve as the blueprint for the rest of the century. Without the money to build and market the invention, the inventor sold his story to Hoover.
It was so popular that “Hoover” became the British word for vacuum cleaner.
We live in a society where every home is equipped with at minimum one vacuum cleaner and in every office, too. There’s never been a better. When it is the commercial vacuuming and cleaning, there are a lot of questions posed to us by prospective clients and our staff, who want to do the very best job they can do.
Let’s look into the vacuum cleaners available for commercial cleaning. What is the best commercial-grade vacuum?
Is there a “best” commercial vacuum cleaner?
There’s indeed no perfect device for every task in the real world. A household vacuum can be used in the event of a need. However, commercial vacuum cleaners typically come with characteristics that make them better suitable for long hours of cleaning than shorter bursts of household cleaning. Some dry and wet cleaners can clean up spills and not get stuck in. There are many options; it’s challenging to choose the right one in the present.
You may have noticed a particular vacuum cleaner that appears to be present in every store and office you’ve visited…
Numatic NRV 240-11 (a.k.a. Henry)
We’ve all seen Henry, the cheerful little red vacuum cleaner found in nearly every office or shop you’ve ever seen an appliance for vacuuming in. Why is this small machine, which has stayed the same since its introduction in 1981, so adored by commercial cleaning?
The answer is straightforward. It’s inexpensive, essential in appearance, and powerful – and holds up to 9 milliliters of dust before emptying. It can be carried in one hand and put in an empty cupboard after you’ve finished. It will continue functioning. If it’s not working, fixing it is simple and affordable. It’s easy to clean; it’s silent – it does everything you want it to do.
It’s not able to perform wet and dry vacuuming. Some models do; however, it’s fine in most office cleaning jobs.
Naturally, Henry certainly isn’t one of the sole commercial vacuums around the globe. There are many options. However, Henry offers a variety of features commercial cleaners want at a fair cost. The word “Henry” has become synonymous with “commercial vacuum cleaner” – similar to the Hoover brand in cleaning homes.
Henry vacuum cleaners come with a cord with a 10m spooled power cable. What is the harm in that?
Are you cordless, or do you have a cord?
Commercial vacuum cleaners tend to be corded, even though it makes moving harder and may pose dangers to trips. There are many reasons why this is the case that makes corded vacuum cleaners more durable, enables more robust designs, and has weight, cost, and time benefits over battery-powered models.
If, for instance, you’re traveling with a lot of commercial cleaning work throughout the day, you won’t be able to recharge your cordless vacuum during breaks between tasks, even if you could most likely complete an entire area in an office. The extra weight of batteries could negate any maneuverability benefit and require you to sacrifice battery life, power, and dust capacity.
Sure, a cord will get in the way, but the ability to plug in the vacuum cleaner and move it out is an enormous benefit. If you’re careful, the risk of slipping and falling is reduced.
Who is the one who provides the vacuum cleaner? The cleaner or the customer?
Professional commercial cleaners are more than content to supply their cleaner, particularly for frequent and particular tasks. However, the reality is that most shops and offices have a vacuum cleaner on their premises, regardless to manage spills between scheduled cleanings.
The answer is that if the client does not have one, you should bring the vacuum. If they have one, then you can make use of it. Please ensure they’re satisfied with it before the start of the contract, and then agree on whose equipment is used before your commercial clean contract starts.
There will be occasions when a basic vacuum cleaner cannot do the job; for instance, when carpets are filthy and more thorough cleaning is required.
This is when a specialized carpet cleaning system is needed. Of course, the customer doesn’t have to supply this equipment!
We are the Abbey Cleaning Service; we’ve invested in the most up-to-date high-end commercial carpet deep cleaning technology that employs the method of hot water extraction. Carpets will be left with an intense, fresh clean that removes obvious dirt, concealed bacteria, and germs.
If we offer our vacuum cleaner, we’ll deliver the purchaser an annual PAT test of the vacuum cleaner. This is necessary for safety and health reasons.
