While a stick or lightweight vacuum is easier to move around while cleaning, choose a canister vacuum when 50 percent or more of the home's surface is wood or other hard surface flooring. A hard surface vacuum is also likely to come with many other cleaning features to help tidy up hard wood floors, such as wand attachments and crevice tools. These will allow for cleaning around the perimeter of a room and the ability to fit easily behind TV cabinets where dust likes to congregate.
