What is the difference between a canister and an upright vacuum?
The main difference between a canister and upright vacuums is the design of the appliance. Canister vacuums have a separate motor and dirt container, while an upright vacuum has an all-in-one design. Upright vacuums stand up on their own, while canister vacuums have multiple pats that do not stand on their own. Upright vacuums are much easier to use and store, while canister vacuums are usually quieter and lighter than upright vacuums. Canister and upright vacuum options can operate on multiple surface types. Within Canister Vacuums, the recommended surface types include Multisurface and Hardwood/Wood Laminate. Check out an option recommended for Multisurface, the 200 Series Bagged Canister Vacuum Cleaner.
