Why Lighter Vacuums are Better
For anyone suffering from back pains, one of the first things you want to reassess is how you're going about your daily tasks. Back pain sufferers need to be that much more cautious about excess weight they might be pushing and lugging around during the day. One way you can eliminate this excess weight is by investing a powerful lightweight vacuum cleaner. The same holds true fro anyone who suffers from arm pain, joint pain, or carpel tunnel syndrome.
There are also some vacuuming tips you can keep in mind to help ease your pain. Instead of short back and forth strokes with the vacuum cleaner, walk with the vacuum across the floor and then when you reach a wall, walk around with it and walk back to the other wall. This prevents back muscles from aching with the back and forth movement and weight of the vacuum cleaner.
