Vacuum Cleaner Attachments and Cleaning Tools
Vacuum cleaner attachments help one clean various dirt and debris from various surfaces.
For example, it is not the same to clean dust and other dirt from tile flooring and long pet hair from carpeted stairs.
But such cleaning can be done using the same vacuum cleaner, but different cleaning attachments.
Especially are upright vacuums with hoses suitable for all around cleaning - a good cleaning head has motorized roller brushes which can be turned on/off according the surface, while adjustment is adjustable too, allowing cleaning of hard floors and carpeted areas. And for cleaning smaller and varied surfaces, there is a flexible hose, with attachments suitable for cleaning upholstery, stairs, sofas, cushions, corners, edges etc.
If your vacuum didn't come with required attachments, no need to worry, since cleaning attachments and tools can be ordered when required.
