by Divya Geryani | Last Updated


Are you fed up of cleaning your house daily and yet not getting satisfaction?

Well yes, we understand. Dry dust and wet stains are hard to remove together, especially when we are short of time.

Thanks to technology for presenting us with wet and dry vacuum cleaners!

What is a wet and dry vacuum cleaner?

A wet and dry vacuum cleaner is basically a regular vacuum cleaner but with the ability to clean both dry dust and wet spills.

Instead of a vacuum bag, it comes with a two bucket system that separates the solids from the liquids.

There two separate compartments to make sure the safe working of the cleaner with no risk of damage or electric shock.

It has a foam filter for the liquid spills and paper cartridge filter for dry items, which will require replacing occasionally.

This is an important appliance if you have kids in your house or if you are a party-host for most times.

Why buy a wet & dry vacuum?

The first reason is clear that they clean both wet and dry spills. Other than that, there are many reasons why a wet and dry vacuum cleaner is a good buy for you.

They have long power cords and are equipped with a number of brushes for different tasks such as cleaning car seats and mats as well as cleaning out grout on tiling.

It makes them suitable for industrial cleaning as well as home cleaning.

Some other uses include:

  • Clearing debris and wood shavings or leftovers with a blower function after renovations.

  • Cleaning up all type of spills, from a burst pipe to a bath overflow. It can also clean a simple stain of wine too.

  • Removing water from a blocked sink. This is again done with the help of a blower function.

  • Handling hardwood floors and other kinds of material too, including curtains with additional attachments.

  • Emptying water mattresses, where most cleaners stop automatically when the tank is full.

What size cleaner is best for you?

The size of the cleaner you should buy depends upon the size of the mess you usually clean.

As the dust and mess go directly in the tank, the tank’s size, hose and filter size should be considered.

For instance, if you need to clean up large sized debris like food and other things, you should go for a cleaner having large tank capacity.

However, for small sized debris, a small tank would be fine.

  • Large sized cleaner: they are heavier and bulkier and work better for the industrial wet and dry jobs.

  • Medium sized cleaner: comes in moderate size and performance is fairly good. The machine is compact and works in a variety of cleaning situations.

  • Small sized cleaner: they are the lightest of them, in weight, quality, and performance.

The suction hoses also come in three variants.

For cleaning large debris, a 2.5m hose is required at least.

For small sized debris, a hose size between 1.25 – 1.5m is fine, but for something in between them, a 1.5 to 2.5m hose should suffice, depending on your cleaning needs.

A wet and dry vacuum cleaner is not a luxury appliance to have in your home. It has become a necessity.
