The most suitable vacuum cleaner for sofa, curtains and upholstery is a canister vacuum cleaner but there are a few exceptions. For example, Kent has made a vacuum cleaner specially designed to clean upholstery and mattresses. It uses UV radiations and other fancy-sounding stuff to not only remove the dust but also kill those bed mites sleeping with you (It’s on our list too).

Coming back to the point, we now have a fair idea about the basic difference in the structure of the vacuum cleaner. So let’s dig just-a-little deeper to understand our cleaning buddy better.

Add-On cleaning tools

In general, all canister vacuum cleaners come with multiple attachments suiting to various household cleaning jobs.  A narrow tool for crevices, an upholstery brush, and a round brush for dusting are the typical ones. Now, as we are focussing on cleaning sofa and curtains, the ‘upholstery brush’ plays much importance. A Vacuum cleaner for sofa, curtains & upholstery should have an attachments with thick bristles as they clean the sofas thoroughly. Some VCs also have multiple upholstery attachments i.e one for the surface, one for corner etc etc. But don’t be dazzled by them, one useful attachment is always better than three average ones.

Suction Power

(I know it’s a little tricky, but stay with me. )
Suction power is the power of the motor in the vacuum cleaner with which it can pull the dust particles. So, more the suction power, more dust can be pulled out from deep within. But in most cases, with increasing power, the weight and size of the motor also increase thereby, making it noisier and heavier.

Useful features to keep an eye for:

  • Auto cord rewind: Press a button and the job is done.
  • Dust Container Full indicator: You don’t have to open the diaper and check for poo every time. When it happens, you’ll get to know.
  • Capacity: The higher the capacity, the less time you spend changing the bag or emptying the drum.
  • Filters: OCD about dust? Check the filters. A microfiber filter would mostly serve the purpose. But in case you suffer from allergies or asthma, you might consider a HEPA filter which can trap 99.97 percent of dust particles.

About Tavishi Gutgutia

A graduate of NIFT New Delhi, Tavishi is socially awkward and emotionally constipated. But she doesn't shy away from challenges, as long as that challenge is not to diet.



  2. I am still confused which one to purchase, Canister or Stick. I will mostly use for Carpet, Sofa & Curtains.
    So, please advise me at the earliest, so that I can buy it during the offer period.

    • I think a Canister type will be better. You can check if any deals are available online on these vacuum cleaners as a lot of online discount festivals are going on.

  3. Clean India mission is the proof that how much important cleaning is. It not only creates an hygienic environment to live in but also keeps one away from harmful bacteria. If you think that cleaning is a task that will require enough time then you can chill because there are machines and products that will do cleaning within your comfort level.

  4. Thank you very much for the valuable information. Atleast came to know something about the vacuum cleaners.
