Recently my vacuum cleaner lost its wand – a long pipe attached to the hose. There is a funny story about how I lost it, but the point is I had to look for an attachment that will do by size and functionality to my device. The choice wasn’t that easy as one may think. That is why I decided to create a review of the best carpet cleaning wands – to make sure my audience will save money, time and nerves and won’t repeat my mistakes. So, at first, let’s clarify the major types of these wands.
Major types of carpet cleaning wands
A vacuum cleaner wand can be assembled in two parts or has a telescopic design with a certain length adjustment. The latter option is easier to use, so I would recommend buying the telescoping wands. To make sure a vacuum cleaner is shunting during cleaning, choose aluminum wand – it’s lighter than a metal one. Also, you may want to opt for a vertical design because such wands are easier to fit in a small garage or storage room.
How to choose a telescoping carpet-cleaning wand?
Aluminum and steel attachments have proven reliability and convenience of use. Even the lower price of plastic attachments makes it impossible to ignore such a point as the durability of metallic wands. Look for the wands that have 1.5” or 3.2-3.5 cm in tubing diameter, being round. This is a standard size that fits practically old and new models of vacuum cleaners.
Top 3 carpet cleaning wands I recommend to buy:
- American Extractors offers an attachment that is 60” long and 12” wide, it has a splash guard option and will fit any vacuum cleaners with 1.5” diameter tubing;
- American Extractors is another attachment with the same tubing parameter, though it is much shorter. It has a 1200 PSI rated brass valve;
- Cecame Cleaning Tools offers a wand for portable extractors, with splash guard option and the standard tubing – 1.5” diameter;
