Backpack Vacuums—The Wave of the Future?

Have you ever lugged a suitcase around an airport for 20 minutes? Even worse, haul that thing up a flight of stairs? That is a good example of what it’s like pushing an upright vacuum around. Back pains and pulled muscles are not part of the job description but they seem to be the result with most upright vacuum cleaners.

It’s so much easier to vacuum the floor with a backpack vacuum, especially if you’re doing a lot of vacuuming. You don’t have to drag around a cord and you can get carpet and other places and one sweep. Save about a good half hour of cleanup. Backpack vacuums such as the ProTeam or the DustCare backpacks use a mountaineering style back plate and harness that positions the weight of the vacuum on the strongest part of the human body—the waist. The corresponding side-to-side motion of the wands minimizes the stress placed on the torso. Easy to reach accessory tools eliminate bending over and make detail work and reaching tall areas a breeze.

All this, plus studies about the increase in productivity with backpack vacuums can be up to 70%!!! And that’s WITHOUT adding staff.
