Corded canister vacuums plug into an electrical outlet and use a cleaning wand to remove dirt and dust from carpeting, bare floors, and other surfaces. They eliminate the battery-recharging downtime associated with cordless units. Their lightweight cleaning wand is easier to maneuver than an upright-vacuum head, and their canister has wheels or handles for moving it from place to place. The wand can be fitted with attachments for specific cleaning jobs, such as vacuuming floors, curtains, or elevated surfaces. These vacuums are commonly used to clean hotel rooms, hallways, stairs, upholstered furniture, and auto interiors.
