Wet and Dry Vacuums

Wet and Dry Vacuums

A wet and dry vacuum gives you the best of both worlds because you can mop and vacuum at the same time. This means you only have to whip around the house once, rather than doing it first with a vacuum and then with a mop and bucket. A wet vac is a very versatile machine with more powerful suction than standard vacuums, making it the ideal cleaning machine for both small and large households as well as businesses.

How do wet and dry vacuums work?

Many of our customers ask us how wet and dry vacuums work, so here’s a quick explanation. Just like standard vacuums, the design of a wet and dry vacuum cleaner is very simple. Instead of using a collection bag or canister for dust and debris, a wet and dry vacuum has two collection chambers to keep the clean and dirty water separate. The motor is usually located on top of the collection chambers. When the vacuum is in use, the dust, debris and spills are sucked into these chambers for collection while the air passes through the system and out via an external port.

There are two features that are very important when you’re selecting a wet and dry vacuum: the power of the motor and the capacity of the collection chambers. The higher the wattage of the motor and the greater the capacity of the chamber, the better your machine will be at cleaning a large area. A wet vac with a small motor and capacity is ideal for small to medium households and businesses, while models with bigger motors and greater capacities are ideal for larger households and businesses.
