There are a huge range of tools and attachments to help you with the vacuuming, including everything from specialist tools for cleaning those hard-to-reach areas to innovative attachments for tackling stairs and pet hair. You can buy vacuum cleaner tools at BuySpares.
The types of tools and attachments available:
Extension Tube: this attachment gives you extra reach and is ideal for non-floor cleaning. You can use an extension tube with another attachment for cleaning items like ceiling fans, wall corners and curtains.
Dusting Brush: this tool can be used to dust furniture, blinds, skirting board tops, light fittings and much more.
Upholstery Brush: The clue is in the name for this one. You can use the upholstery tool for all kinds of fabrics including curtains, cushions and sofas.
Crevice Tool: The crevice tool is for cleaning narrow, hard-to-reach spaces like along skirting boards, door frames, heating vents and behind and between appliances.
Floor Tool: This is the most commonly used attachment and will often have setting for switching from carpeted floors to hard floors.
Depending on the brand of vacuum cleaner you own, the size of the vacuum tube or wand that your new tool needs to attach to will vary. There are a number of different diameters available, but the most common sizes are 30.5, 32, 35 and 37mm attachments. It is therefore important that you measure the tube before buying a new tool or alternatively you could opt for an adjustable tool.
Save money by choosing universal
There are usually two options when it comes to purchasing a new or replacement tool for your vacuum cleaner. You can opt for a genuine spare part from the manufacturer of the vacuum or a universal fit tool.
While a genuine part will match the styling and aesthetics of your vacuum, they can be expensive. In contrast, most universal tools are basic in appearance but are usually available at a fraction of the cost.
