Is the Technology for Wet/Dry Vacuums the same? 

The emergence of vacuum cleaning has given us the finest touches of technology with back to back additions to their acumen. If sucking up dirt and debris was one problem that was eradicated, suction of wet messes followed up as another problem. Scrambling for solutions, the technology arrived with an answer in the face of the face of the problem. Now, even sucking up wet messes is possible with considerate enhancements in the design and functioning of regular vacuum cleaners.

To answer the title question, we will elaborate our answer in the upcoming discussion. We will look at the differences between the two technologies while immediately comparing it with the other. So, let us see what we have. 

The requirements within: 

Electricity and water are two stern enemies of each other. What a regular vacuum cleaner has is direct interaction with the suction motor. Sucking up wet messes with this machine can prove destructive to your vacuum cleaner. The dry and wet vacuum cleaner is, on the other hand, equipped with proper insulation inside the chamber. Insulation prevents potential threats to the motor due to wet messes. Contrary to what it may seem, the wet and dry vacuum cleaners do not need much maintenance. However, you may need to change the filter at regular intervals in case you plan on using it extensively. For your information, your dry and wet vacuum cleaner can actually perform a bunch of tasks outside home too. 

The changes in the design: 

A conventional vacuum cleaner uses bags for the accumulation of garbage. On the other hand, a dry and wet vacuum cleaner uses a mechanism that involves two different buckets – one storing dry wastes and the other storing liquids. The nozzle sucks the dirt and mire, into the buckets, over which the air flow is decreased allowing the liquids to fall away from the solid waste bucket. The air flow is separated from the dust and then flows tout through exhaust port, after passing through a fan. This also ensures that the air flowing inside is cleaner than a regular vacuum cleaner. 

The utilities of dry and wet vacuum cleaners: 

These vacuum cleaners also come with a blower. This is especially useful when you need to gather the garbage in piles before picking it up with any other method. 

The features on offer: 

There are several attachments that come with your wet and dry vacuum cleaners. From hoses covering every corner of the house to a buffer attachment tool, this cleaner has it all covered; the tool being particularly helpful in cleaning hardwood floors. The dry and wet vacuum cleaning technology allows you to leverage attachments such as the spinner scrub and certain brushes which allow cleaning of floor tiles. 

To conclude, the dry and wet vacuum cleaner technology is pretty much different from an ordinary vacuum cleaner technology. These changes, in their turn, increase the utility of the cleaner in many ways. We recommend that you buy one of these cleaners for yourself. Happy vacuuming! 

Black & Decker Handheld Vacuums – Best Brand? 

Handheld vacuums have been a revolution in the cleaning industry. They have brought to us the best of technology combined with cleanliness in a single package. With the emergence of handheld vacuuming, many brands have come up with the technology and offer a variety of features that set them apart from the other. One such brand is Black & Decker. Black & Decker has emerged as a promising brand and has been prevalent in the market for pretty long now. While many people go for it without much doubt, it is pertinent to know what this brand is all about. So, this guide is here. It would not be wrong to say that products speak for a brand, so we are going to view Black & Decker with emphasis on its product, Dustbuster. Dustbuster can be termed as a signature product. Here we go. 

About Black & Decker’s support: 

The brand seems to have not touched upon much on the aspect of feedback to its customers. The support section on their website does not seem to be supportive enough. They do have on offer a service helpline but you literally have to scramble for it on the website. The FAQs section is well organized though. Also, the company offer a warranty period of 2 years which looks promising. 

The irritating noise levels: 

The product we are emphasizing on in this write-up, Dustbuster, has staggering volume levels at 91.7 deciBels. However, this noise does not produce enough vibration to disturb you while you work with it.  

The utility: 

Black & Decker has provided the Dustbuster with an indicator that informs you when you should be emptying the bag. This feature comes in handy and it is pretty convenient to remove the bag and then to fit it back; there is hardly any hassle involved. Moreover, the model boasts of a cyclonic motor which prevents lump formation. 

Battery is a concern: 

On a full charge, it is able to go on for about 19 minutes. In comparison to its adversaries, it is a lot of backup, probably one of the best. The disappointment is that it takes 24 hours to charge fully which is annoying at best. 

The design is somewhat weird: 

Black & Decker’s Dustbuster has a design different from many in the market. It has a significantly longer nozzle which implies that suction lacks strength. This is evident when the Dustbuster is used on hard surfaces. 

But the design is fitting in some places: 

The flattened nozzle on this Black & Decker has the capability of reaching some very difficult places. 

What’s good: 

This Black & Decker is powerful and light on weight. Also, the motor’s cyclonic action does not strain the filter much. Dustbuster is effective on large debris. 

Well, there are aspects that make Black & Decker stand apart from the rest of the lot. But then there are other aspects that also showcase the shortcomings in the product, as we build on the above discussion. The verdict remains highly subjective. Happy vacuuming!
