Video Transcript: How to Choose the Right Floor Tools for Your Vacuum Cleaner

IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPLACING A PART IN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT THE APPLIANCE IS FIRST UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS.

There are four main types of vacuum cleaner floor tool available, all made for different jobs, and these are as follows:

I) The crevice nozzle helps you get into small areas and tight corners, as well as cleaning around skirting boards.

II) The dusting brush is small and soft enough to remove dust from items like computer keyboards and the tops of TVs and skirting boards.

III) The upholstery tool, or all-purpose tool, is designed for use on your furniture and curtains, and is also great for doing the stairs or car seats.

IV) The main floor tool is what you'd use for vacuuming your main floor areas. It has two settings, extended brushes for hard floors, and retracted brushes for carpeted floors.

You can either buy the genuine floor tools for your brand of vacuum, or alternatively the more affordable universal tools, which are made to fit a range of different vacuums.

Vacuum tubes can vary in size. To find out the size of your vacuum's tube, measure its diameter from the outer edges.

We recommend to buy a fixed connection tool, which will fit onto the inside or the outside of the tube like this.

If you can't find the size to fit your vacuum tube, there are also adjustable tools, which can be altered to fit any size of tube by unscrewing it to make it looser, and screwing back on when the tube is in place.
