Upright Vacuum Cleaner

The upright vacuum is a cornerstone of commercial cleaning, known for their powerful suction and user-friendly design. These vacuums feature a vertical, self-contained unit that houses the motor, dust collection system, and cleaning head. With their robust construction and high-performance motors, upright vacuums excel at cleaning large carpeted areas efficiently. Whether you're tackling office spaces, retail stores, or hotel lobbies, upright vacuum cleaner provide the suction power and maneuverability needed to achieve pristine results.

If you're in search of a high-quality commercial-grade upright vacuum, our experts highly recommend the SEBO brand. SEBO vacuums are recognized for their stylish design, have won many awards, and are trusted by many users.

Canister Vacuum

The canister vacuum offers versatility and flexibility, with a separate canister unit housing the motor and dust collection system. These vacuums, connected to the cleaning head by a flexible hose, are great for cleaning tight spaces and various surfaces like carpets and hardwood floors. Canister vacuums are lightweight and easy to handle, making them perfect for businesses like restaurants, hospitals, and schools with different cleaning needs.

Our standard suggestion when it comes to canister vacuums is the Henry compact canister vacuum. Its' cordless feature makes it easy and convenient to carry around, great for both quick cleaning and deep cleaning. Plus, it's adorable! The Numatic vacuum brand is a safe choice because they're known for being versatile and reliable.

However, if you prefer an absolute monster that can handle heavy duty cleaning with no problem, here's a corded option which will give you a ton of suction power, the Miele complete C3 power plus canister vacuum. Now, the next tier would be the Johnny Vac JV58H that has a HEPA filter that is excellent for people with aeroallergens and asthma, typically used for hospitals, schools, and other institutions. 

Backpack Vacuum

The backpack vacuum changed cleaning by being hands-free, so users can clean big areas easily without pushing a heavy unit. Worn like a backpack, these vacuums provide unmatched mobility and agility, making them a favorite among janitorial staff and cleaning professionals. Backpack vacuums offer great convenience and efficiency for businesses of all types and sizes, from offices and kitchens to schools and airports.

In consideration of lightweight, compact, and budget friendliness, I would personally like to recommend to you the Karcher BV 7/1 (Vac Pac HEPA 6). Weighted at 10lb, this powerful backpack vacuum is capable of powerful suction, plus it uses a standard HEPA filter. 

Central Vacuum System

If you're in the restaurant industry, or any type of business that makes liquid or solid type of mess on a typical basis, trust me, you'll want to invest in a wet dry vacuum. One of our favourites, the Numatic George GVE370 is cute, reliable, gets the job done, what more do you want? Of course, if you want recommendations for much more serious wet dry vacuums, Johnny Vac JV59 is a more budget-friendly option compared to George.
