Turbo brush for vacuum cleaner
It is difficult to imagine life without the most necessary representative of household appliances – a vacuum cleaner. There are few houses where this assistant is not used.
But if suddenly you want to change the old, or purchase a new device: how to make the right choice among the existing variety of models?
Consumers give preference to devices that come with a turbo brush. How is this brush different from others?
The turbo nozzle does a better job of cleaning horizontal surfaces, especially if they are carpeted. The bristle roller rotates at high speed, which helps to get rid of fur or hair much better.
It is indispensable for cleaning carpets with long pile, and is also suitable for those who have animals in the house. This tool is harmless to the surface being cleaned and does not spoil it in any way.
The appearance of the turbo nozzle is a roller with spiral bristles. This nozzle works thanks to the motor and the electric turbine.
This tool is designed to get rid of dirt that is difficult to clean when using conventional nozzles: animal hair, hair, large amounts of dust and other difficult cleaning.
The speed of the roller does not require adjustment, the device independently copes with this task, depending on the surface to be cleaned. If the surface is hard, such as parquet, laminate, tile or linoleum, the roller speed will be slow.
If the surface is carpeted or carpeted, the torque increases. The mechanism of the tool is quite powerful, so the high efficiency of cleaning any surface is guaranteed.
You should also not forget that, like other nozzles, “turbocharged” needs care and cleaning. Otherwise, the debris that accumulates in it will reduce the cleaning efficiency. This is especially true of threads, hair, animal hair that get stuck inside the brush.
Therefore, it is necessary to carry out regular cleaning of the tool in order not to slow down the speed of work and not reduce the quality of cleaning. Serious contamination of the brush can damage the performance of the entire turbo nozzle.
Types of turbo brushes for a vacuum cleaner
There are two types of turbobrush drive, the configuration of which directly depends on the manufacturer.
Mechanical turbo brushes for vacuum cleaner
In this case, the performance of the brush depends directly on what the vacuum cleaner itself is capable of. The performance of the brush is driven by the air that enters it.
In this case, the nozzle is attached to the pipe, and the further operation of such a nozzle is no different from using other interchangeable tools.
Since the speed of rotation of the roller is directly dependent on the power of the device, in order to obtain high-quality cleaning results, it is necessary that the device meets high power requirements.
If the housing is dominated by hard surfaces, then the best option would be a vertical-type vacuum cleaner with an aquafilter.
If soft surfaces are preferred in the house, then it is better to choose a device with a garbage bag.
Electric turbo brushes for vacuum cleaner
The name itself already indicates that the drive is built into the brush and requires a separate power supply. In this version, the auxiliary tool is powered by electricity independently of the device itself.
The speed of rotation of the roller in such types is autonomous and the only thing it depends on is the technical capabilities of the brush itself. And it is worth preparing for the fact that the cost of such a brush will be quite high and in some cases can reach the cost of new household appliances.
Types of vacuum cleaners
For dry cleaning
This is a “classic” option, models with this type of cleaning are the most popular. Such household devices are intended for cleaning parquet floors, carpets, carpets, cabinet and upholstered furniture, and other surfaces that do not tolerate moisture well.
Balloon – More popular than everyone else. They are distinguished by the fact that their price is much lower than other models in this segment.
And they are divided into:
- Manual – differ in that they are much lighter. Best suited for apartments with a small area.
- Compact – by weight, like manual ones, but the dimensions are average. Easy to carry and quite comfortable to use.
- full size – differ in the presence of volumetric dust collectors and versatility. The kit includes many different nozzles. Accordingly, the price of such units is much higher.
- vertical – designed for cleaning in offices and other non-residential premises. Such vacuum cleaners are much better at removing dust and dirt. These devices differ in size, they are multifunctional, incomparably comfortable in operation, indispensable in the fight against allergens, the air filtration mode is multi-level.
- Combined – types of machines that have collected a complete configuration. They are designed for cleaning flat surfaces and large areas. It is not advisable to use such devices at home.
For wet cleaning
Washing machines with a turbo brush – can operate in dry and wet cleaning modes. Washing of surfaces is carried out by spraying the liquid and its subsequent suction.
They handle liquids with ease, which can help eliminate the use of floor cloths.
- mechanical – power is regulated by means of a rotor located on the body of the device.
- Electronic – rheostat type regulator smoothly changes the power level. Such a regulator is placed either on the body or on the tube of the vacuum cleaner. Some manufacturers have equipped their models with a display showing the power value, along with other parameters.
How to choose a turbo brush for a vacuum cleaner
Manufacturers offer many options, from mechanical to electric, which differ only in appearance, but are similar in performance.
The main thing to do is to choose the nozzle that will provide productive and high-quality cleaning. When choosing a brush, do not forget that it should be easy to clean, assemble and disassemble.
It is best to choose such models that are made of transparent plastic. It is easy to look into such a design, determine the degree of contamination and carry out cleaning in time.
Some manufacturers sell brushes with a set of adapters that allow you to use the nozzle on other models of vacuum cleaners, making the tool universal.
If the requirements for power and quality of surface cleaning are high, then you should pay attention to nozzles that are equipped with stiff bristles on the roller. Such bristles will allow you to get rid of wool, dirt and other contaminants, even from dense long pile carpets.
Some manufacturers produce turbo brushes equipped with a special indicator on the body that shows the level of contamination of the nozzle. This way it will be easy to determine when it is time to clean the instrument.
Manufacturers also made sure that the service life lasted as long as possible, and in the event of a breakdown, some parts can be replaced. Therefore, when choosing a turbocharger, especially with an electric drive, it is worth clarifying the availability of a guarantee and the possibility of replacing parts.
When choosing, you should not forget that devices with a bag are much more durable, and those equipped with an aqua filter are more environmentally friendly. Remember that whichever machine you choose for cleaning, it is better to choose a turbo brush of the same model as it.
What you need to pay attention to when choosing:
- A variety of dust collectors and filters.
- Type of cleaning – dry or wet.
- Working power and cleaning efficiency.
- Exhaust air filtration system.
- Noise level depending on operating modes.
- Nozzles and accessories.
- Secondary functions.
This is the main criterion that will determine the quality of cleaning. It is better to choose models with higher power – cleaning work will be of better quality and will take less time.
Please note that suction power and consumption are two different concepts that are practically unrelated. Consumption figures are usually indicated on the body of the device and are measured in thousands of watts.
Suction power may not be indicated on the device itself or indicated in small print. But these data must be indicated in the technical data sheet of the device.
Unfortunately, today there are no standards for vacuum cleaners, as for washing classes for washing machines. Therefore, manufacturers tend to inform the consumer about the suction power of their models, each in its own way.
For example, the unit of measurement for such power, for some brands, is the aerowatt, others are less original and use watts in the notation.
As a rule, the indicators of this characteristic should be indicated in two values: maximum and nominal. This makes it easier to make the right choice. Do not forget that the peak value is reached only in the first minutes of operation of the device. After 5-10 minutes of the working process, the nominal value is reached, because the dust container fills up and it becomes more difficult for air to pass through it.
Therefore, when choosing, it is worth paying attention to the fact that these values do not differ from each other by more than 16%. So, if the indicators are limiting 300-350 watts, then the device can easily cope with coatings: tiles, linoleum, carpet with a short pile. If the limits are 350-500 watts, they will suit those who have animals or long pile carpets in the house.
The highest class of vacuum cleaner models is the most successful – they have lower power consumption and higher suction. But these types of equipment are relatively expensive.
Therefore, when choosing a turbo brush for a vacuum cleaner, first of all, you should think about where exactly you will use it, what requirements will be put forward?
To date, most of the powerful models are equipped with an indispensable, compared to others, nozzle for cleaning – a turbo brush. It can come as standard with the vacuum cleaner or you need to purchase it separately.
