When you are responsible for the cleaning of large, high-footfall areas, you need to be sure that you are investing in not only the best tool for the job, but the one that will actually increase your efficiencies across the board.

When it comes to choosing a vacuum cleaner, there are two options: traditional, mains-powered corded, or the lighter, more flexible cordless alternative. It is fair to say that pretty much everyone is acquainted with the functionality of corded vacuums.

However, when it comes to the benefits of the cordless alternatives, you may not be aware of how useful and effective they are. Read on to find out the top 3 business benefits of using cordless vacuums to improve health & safety, increase flexibility and have a positive impact on your time and budget.

Decrease Risk

When using a heavy corded vacuum, cleaning teams may find they are unable to move quickly from one area to another without the need to plug and unplug. Traditional vacuum cleaners also raise the injury risk for cleaners having to pull them up stairways and lift them onto raised levels within auditoriums, cinemas and the like. Trailing cords are also a trip hazard for both the operative, and in 24 hour premises, for other staff and visitors too. This is not the case with a Makita cordless vacuum. Astonishingly light, and free from the restraints of being plugged into a wall, battery powered devices from Makita make short work of stairways and space restricted areas. Cleaning operatives are equipped to complete a thorough clean without unnecessary risk.

Increased Flexibility

Light and compact, Makita vacuums give cleaning operatives the ability to clean hard to reach spots, corners and behind furniture and/or appliances quickly and effectively. Additional flexibility comes from the choice of accessories, nozzles, brushes and telescopic pipes which are also available.

Eliminating the need to struggle to raise and balance a vacuum to a level where effective cleaning is possible, the Makita Back Pack Vacuum DVC 260 is light enough to be carried like a rucksack, making every space accessible. This means that operatives no longer have to compromise on service delivery because a) the cord won’t reach, or b) the vacuum is too heavy to lift and position.

If a handheld stick vacuum is better for the area you are trying to clean then the 18v DCL181 model with a range of accessories, excellent suction power and light, ergonomic design is ideal. Quiet to run too it is perfect for cleaning 24 hour offices.

Cost and time saving

You may assume that a battery powered vacuum will be spending a lot of time being charged when it could be in use. Your main investment when buying an item from Makita is in its batteries. With an unbeatable charge time, all Makita 18v Li-ion batteries are quick to charge and power the devices for an impressive amount of time to allow you more time to get on with the job. After the initial investment, your batteries will then charge around 200 different Makita devices.
