Important parameters

Sací výkon

Suction power

Suction power is considered one of the most important parameters when choosing a vacuum cleaner. However, it is not always given by the manufacturer as there is no uniform system for its measurement; therefore, data from individual manufacturers cannot be clearly compared. Nevertheless, suction power typically corresponds to 1/3 to 1/5 of the vacuums power.


Bag / container volume

The ideal volume of a vacuum cleaner bag depends on the size of the area you will clean.

Vacuuming area

Bag volume

Up to 50 m22-2.5 litres
50-150 m23-4 l
Above 150 m24 l + 


Vacuum cleaners that produce 61-70 db noise are considered very quiet, whereas anything exceeding 80 dB is considered noisy.

Délka kabelu

Cable length and operating radius

The cable length determines the reach of the vacuum cleaner. Accordingly, if you plan to clean large areas, it's definitely worth choosing a model with a longer cable length.

Instead of cable length, some manufacturers state the operating radius. This indicates the overall reach of a vacuum cleaner, i.e. the sum of the cable length, body length and the vacuum nozzle length.



Attachments are available for carpets, hard floors, crevices, etc. Turbo brushes are suitable for the removal of animal hair or hair from carpets.

Glossary - Vacuum cleaners

HEPA filter

HEPA filters (High Efficiency Particular Air) are among the most powerful filtration systems available, capturing up to 99.9% of impurities. The degree of efficiency is indicated by the numbers 10 to 14, where the number 10 indicates 85% filtration efficiency and 14 represents 99% filtration efficiency. The HEPA filter is located behind the vacuum motor, where it captures dust and debris. If you have a family history of allergies, it is recommended to choose a vacuum cleaner with this type of filtration.

Turbo brush

Turbo brushes are designed for cleaning carpets. They are ideal for removing animal or human hair, but they are also effective at removing ingrained dirt. Turbo brushes contain one or more rotating cylinders with fixed bristles. They can be powered either by air intake or by a motor. Turbo brushes with their own motor offer increased performance, but at the cost of higher power consumption.
