An Upright vacuum refers to a kind of vacuum that is perfect for large, carpeted areas of the house. Uprights use a motor-driven beater brush that loosens and removes dirt through suction.

Most come with onboard attachments which make cleaning hard-to-reach areas a breeze. Some capture dust and debris in bags, while others are bagless. Some uprights even feature adjustments, allowing users to clean thick pile carpet or hardwood floors with the flick of a switch.
