Upright Vacuum Glossary of Terms
Wide Area Cleaning Path Uprights = A vacuum with a wider cleaning head is ideal for those vacuuming large areas at a time. This can be a timesaver as you need less passes on the carpet. The widest cleaning path vacuum we cover is 28 inches (these are referred to as wide area vacuums).

12-inch Vs 15-inch Powerhead = 12-inch is the standard for regular vacuums. An 15-inch vacuum can cover 25% more carpeted area in one pass than a standard vacuum.

12-inch Vs 18-inch Powerhead = 12-inch is the standard for regular vacuums. An 18-inch vacuum can cover a whopping 50% more carpeted area in one pass than a standard vacuum. This is a timesaver.

12-inch Vs 28-inch Powerhead = The Advance CarpeTriever 28 has a huge 28-inch wide area cleaning path, which is 133% larger than a standard vacuum. This type of vacuum in commercial settings, can be a huge timesaver, with vacuuming in less than 1/2 the time of a standard 12-inch vacuum.

Power Cord Length = If you have larger and longer areas to cover, a longer cord is essential. All vacuums on this page have a long cord length of at least 40 feet.

Bagged Vacuum = A bagged vacuum stores all the dirt and dust in a disposable bag. Many are self sealing, so that dust does not go everywhere when you remove the bag. Bagged vacuums usually have a larger capacity to store dirt and dust than Bagless Vacuums. Part of the filtration system is built-in to the bag.

Bagless Vacuum = A bagless vacuum stores dirt and dust in its onboard dust bin which is detachable so you can take the dust bin to your trash can, to empty it. You do not need to purchase bags. Most you will have to clean the filter from time to time.

Shake out Bag = This is a reusable bag, that you literally shake out after use.

Self Sealing Bag = Some bagged vacuums have dust bags that seal shut when you remove them from the vacuum. This prevents dust from getting in the air when you are changing bags. All Miele vacuums have self sealing bags.

HEPA Filter = A HEPA filter is the best type of dirt filtration on a vacuum. This will remove the smallest particles of dirt, dust, and pet hair so that you don’t breathe in what you are vacuuming. This is especially important for those with allergies.

Stretch Hose & Tools = This means there is a hose attachment port for an optional hose and accessories for tighter areas, and off-floor cleaning.

Motor By-Pass = All debris goes directly into the bag, bypassing the motor and fan. If you pick up a screw or metal object, it will not damage the motor.
