Improve Your Property's Sanitation System

Hello, my name is Terry. Welcome to my blog. This blog is about a subject which isn't very popular - sanitation. However, while alot of people don't like to talk about toilet waste, it is a fact of life. I recently moved into a new home by the ocean on the western coast of Australia. It is a lovely property in a fantastic spot. There was one problem which soon made itself known when I arrived. The toilets did not work properly. When waste was flushed down them, it didn't seem to go anywhere. I called in a sanitation expert who inspected the system and gave me plenty of advice. In the end, I installed a new septic tank. I learnt a lot during the process so I decided to start this blog.

What to Look For In a New Residential Vacuum Cleaner

Your residential vacuum cleaner is very important, as properly vacuuming up dust, dirt, pet hair and dander, and other debris actually keeps the air in your home clean. This also helps to preserve carpet fibres and the finish of laminate and other flooring surfaces. You can also use a vacuum for cleaning drapery and heating vents, and this will also contribute to a cleaner home environment. When you're ready for a new vacuum for your home, note a few features to look for so you know you get the right one for your needs:


The most common types of vacuums for home use are upright, canister and stick models. Upright models are one piece; the bag or canister is attached to a stick or stand, and this model will have a large, wide brush at the front. These are good for larger homes, as their wide brush will clean a larger area at once, and attachments will allow you to clean drapery, furniture and other such surfaces.

A canister vacuum will have a canister that is separated from the handle by a hose. These are more lightweight than an upright vacuum, so they're good for cleaning stairs. They also fit more easily under furniture.

A stick vacuum is like an upright vacuum but is much smaller. It's lighter weight can also make it convenient for cleaning stairs, but it's smaller size means it will take longer to vacuum a large surface. Consider this option carefully, as a stick vacuum may not be the best choice for most residential homes.


Note that amps and watts don't tell you the actual suction of a vacuum; these measurements only refer to how much electrical power the piece needs to operate. Instead, note how much suction the piece generates, as well as the stiffness of the beater bar or brush that rotates under the head. These are better indicators of how well the piece will actually clean floors.

Bagged versus bagless

Don't assume that either a bagged or bagless model is better for your vacuum; as said, it's the suction of the piece that dictates how much cleaning power it offers. Both models can work equally well, and both should have filters that help to clean the air as they operate. A bagless model may be a bit cheaper over time, as you don't need to replace so many bags, but emptying a vacuum canister can be very dusty and dirty and bothersome to those with allergies and sensitivities.
