5 Reasons Commercial Cleaners Use Backpack Vacuums


Most commercial cleaning companies offer a variety of services, including dusting, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming and trash removal. To stay in business, though, cleaning companies must be able to perform those services in such a way as to turn a profit. This means that they must learn to control their costs while still being able to provide the commercial cleaning service their customers demand. One of the ways to do that is by using commercial backpack vacuums. There are several advantages to using vacuums of that type. Here are five of them:

1. Greater Reach

Backpack vacuums have a greater reach than other vacuum types, such as uprights and canisters. Because they are worn on the back of staff members, it is easier for staff to reach high points, such as ceilings, upper door facings and heating and air-conditioning vents. Backpack vacuums are also good for reaching into tight spaces, such as closets and pantries. This prevents staff members from having to switch to handheld units to get into those same tight spaces. Additionally, backpack vacuums are great for office cleaning due to the number of waist-high surfaces like desks, countertops and sinks.

2. More Productive

Office cleaning is more productive with backpack vacuums because the vacuum goes wherever the staff member goes. A good example of this is a staircase. Staff members do not have to drag a vacuum cleaner along with them as they navigate the stairs. They simply carry the vacuum on their back. They can even clean the railing and each stair step as they go. This is also true when staff has to stand on a step stool to reach a surface to be cleaned. Another advantage to backpack vacuums is that the cord remains behind the person using the vacuum. This is much more efficient than trying to keep an upright or canister cord out of the way.
