How to choose a wet cleaning technique?

To select a reliable, multi-functional and high-quality unit for wet cleaning, it is necessary to take into account some features of the technique and also focus on your needs.

Criterion # 1 - water tank capacity

For wet cleaning in washing units, special water tanks, cleaning and liquid collection agents have been installed. If your apartment has 1-2 rooms, then you can safely buy a vacuum cleaner with a small tank volume - up to 2-3 liters.

Robotic type wet cleaning unit
You can also pay attention to robotic models, although you can pour up to 1 liter of water into their tanks. They do a good job cleaning floors.

For large apartments and houses you will need a device with a 3-8-liter tank. Thanks to its capabilities, you can carry out cleaning in one cycle without changing the water.

Criterion # 2 - dimensions and power

Using conventional units, you can wash windows, cars, carpets, upholstered furniture. The suction power of the dust masses determines how efficiently and quickly the cleaning will be done. The higher this indicator, the better the unit will clean the surface of dust, wool, dirt.

And here washing robots - compact and maneuverable, but they perform only superficial wet cleaning with microfiber cloths. Only a few models are used for cleaning sofas and carpets. The rest serve as a polisher.

Standard view of the washing device
Standard wire washing devices are bulky and heavy due to filling them with water and various means. They are difficult to move, but in terms of functionality they are more practical

Criterion # 3 - type of device and equipment

Before buying, decide which type of device is best suited for cleaning surfaces. If the apartment is dominated by hard flooring, it is worth paying attention to robots. They do all the work on their own, with minimal user involvement.

Wet Carpet Cleaning
If your goal is to clean carpets, paths and furniture from dirt and dust, then it is better to purchase standard type products

A set of wired devices includes several nozzles that are designed for a specific type of cleaning. It is worth choosing a model with the maximum number of brushes, for example, for cleaning furniture, collecting liquids, polishing.

    For a very long time I wanted a washing vacuum cleaner. Six months ago, I still bought and was disappointed. I took Thomas an aquafilter with heating water to 50 degrees. And now I am glad that I finally fused it with friends. Not only is it not cheap, it’s not yet agile, everything is wet from it, and the filters must be constantly changed. Now I mop the floors with the usual mop and am absolutely happy.
