BUYING GUIDE

How to choose a wall mounted vacuum

Since not every garage vacuum can be the best wall mounted garage vacuum, here are a few aspects to look out for to ensure you get something worth the investment.

Suction

This cannot be overstressed, a good garage vacuum needs to have enough suction to deal with the common waste you would find in a garage or car. Dust, mud, food crumbs, sawdust, and screws are some of the things you will deal with often so the vacuum needs to be able to suck them up without having to go over the same area over and over again.

Filters

Since you are dealing with dust quite often, it is important that the vacuum has filters that can handle the kind of dust. HEPA filters are the best, but there are other kinds that can also handle fine dust to a certain percentage. The filter also protects the motor. You also need to consider how you will care for the filter, how long it will last before it needs replacement, as well as how easy and affordable it is to get replacements

Hose length

Since the vacuum is going to be stationed on the wall, it is important that the hose can reach the places you would want to vacuum. A long hose is ideal but at the same time consider if the vacuum has a provision for storing the hose, since a long hose may become a burden if there is nowhere to wrap it when you are not using it.

Stability

It is best to consider your safety when buying a wall mount vacuum. The mount needs to be stable and safe so that it will not fall under the weight of the waste in it. Also, you need to ensure that as you remove it to empty the tank, it will not end up on your foot or just falling and creating a new mess for you to clean up.

Versatility

some vacuums can only perform a few tasks, but the best ones can do a number of things like blowing, act as a handheld vacuums and some a very feature rich with functions many others may not have. Think of what you intend to use the vacuum for and see if it has the functions you will need.
