Here’s a question you’ve definitely asked yourself in the past month. It’s never an easy decision. What might work with one contract, might not with another.

There are so many choices! Backpack, tub, or upright, battery or mains, and wet or dry. So, you aren't short of options. But the more options - the harder the decision is to make.

This is an easy guide that tells you which vacuum is best for your contract.

For your average commercial contract, your vacuumable spaces here would most likely be hard flooring in reception areas and hallways and low pile carpets in the actual office areas with either of the same floor types for the stairs.

I give you backpack vacuums...

Clean Anywhere. No wires, less sound, wear it.

Is it open-planned? A collection of smaller rooms and offices? Stairs, steps and slopes? No access to mains supply? Do you need quieter machines so occupants are not disturbed?

I give you backpack vacuums...

Quieter.

The quietest backpack vacuum is Numatic's RSB 150NX. Even on high power, it's only 63 dB(A)! Other features include a fully adjustable backpack harness with integrated tool storage on the belt, handheld power control and battery level and up to 80mins run-time.

At 64 dB(A), the Battery Pacvac Superpro 700 is a very close second. Some of its features include; a 300W motor, ergonomic harness, 4-stage HEPA-rated filtration and up to 40mins of run-time.


Powerful.

The Pacvac Superpro 700 is the most popular in their range. Not battery-powered, its mains-powered 900W motor, 18m power cord and a 4-stage HEPA-rated filtration is a practical option for many.


Smaller. Lighter.

The Pacvac Velo is a battery-powered vacuum; the smallest and lightest in their range – only 4.6kg for 50mins run-time per set of batteries!


Faster.

Our bluebird floor tool makes cleaning around table and chair legs and switching between hard and carpeted floors a breeze. The Bluebird is a high-performance, free-running, lightweight floor tool that cleans up to 33% faster than vacuuming with a standard floor tool. You’ll only need to use one hand on the wand due to its four-wheeled design offering exceptional manoeuvrability – freeing up your other hand for moving obstacles and opening doors.

Good for carpets.

A soft, dense, or shaggy carpet or rug - usually a pain to clean. They quickly collect dirt between the fibres, but only expose it when it's long overdue for a cleaning. The Sebo XP 10 is the ideal vacuum for avoiding situations like this. It's an upright vacuum with auto-height adjustment, an easy-to-clean cassette brush, and an integrated wand and hose for longer reach into edges and corners.

Eco-friendly.

Do you want to show your clients how eco-friendly you are? The Numatic ERP 180 is made with up to 75% recycled plastic parts and has a 30% reduction in energy use.

The floors are generally the same type as you would find in commercial and office contracts, but the layout you have to clean around and the type of dirt are often vastly different.

There's large rooms separated by wide hallways, tables and chair legs to get around, slopes and steps. The dirt ranges from paper cuttings, hair and glitter in classrooms, to chewing gum in the hallways and squashed food in the food hall.

Powerful. Practical. Manouevrable.

A powerful vacuum that can switch between different floor types easily, cover large areas and is easily manoeuvrable is what you need. The Numatic PBT 230 NX is a battery-powered trolley tub vacuum that features large back wheels, making it more stable and easier to move than the standard 4-castor wheel design. The trolley feature also means cleaning supplies and spare batteries can be transported to different areas without the need for constant trips back to the cleaning cupboard to refill or recharge.

Good for stairs.

Where you have stairs, the Battery Pacvac Superpro 700 boasts of a powerful 300W motor, ready to clean cordlessly – without the need to plug it in on multiple levels.

Aside from the fact that Student Accommodations are stereotypically a lot dirtier to clean, there isn’t that much difference from cleaning apartment blocks. Due to there being a lot more stairs and an obstacle-course vacuum clean, you’ll want a vacuum with a wand and bluebird floor tool to be sure you can clean around and under the obstacles seamlessly.

Small. Cordless. Practical.

To keep it practical with the stairs you’ll want to use the Battery Pacvac Superpro 700. That way you won't be hindered by a short length or any other hazards or accidents a cable could create around the area.

Hopping on and off the transport to clean it? You don’t want anything too heavy or bulky. In fact, you won't want anything that’s going to be pulled or pushed around because it’s likely to get in the way of passengers, the flooring is often uneven, there are small, hard-to-reach areas to get to and there won't be any access to power for mains-powered machinery.

Smaller. Lighter.

The Pacvac Velo is the smallest and lightest battery-powered vacuum, weighing only 4.6kg and keeping out of the way of passengers and obstructions. All this with a run-time of 50 minutes per pair of batteries!

The hospitality sector is very vast – covering retail, events, lodging, food and beverage and leisure.

Cordless. Wearable.

The Battery Pacvac Superpro 700 helps ensure you won't have find find and use any external power supply or unintentionally move any furniture.

Just like hospitality, many areas fit in the ‘high hygiene’ category. They all require strict, mandatory high levels of hygiene. These typically include; Hospitals, Care Sectors, Food Preparation & Catering.

Cleaner. Robust. Lightweight.

Certified to 99.9984% HEPA filtration rate (8 times higher than healthcare standards), the Victor V-9 is a lightweight, easy-to-use, powerful and robust commercial tub vacuum. Great for vacuuming across all floor types and area sizes, it won't topple on any ridges or slopes with its 5-castor design.
