How to Choose the Right Shop Vac for Your Heavy Duty Cleaning

While traditional vacuum cleaners are designed to do basic cleaning jobs, Shop Vacs, also known as Wet Dry Vacs are the cleaning process to a whole new level. You can use a vac to clean your car, for your business, for your garage, or to clean the mess at work. Each vacuum cleaner is designed with a specific purpose in mind.

1. Shop-Vac Capacity

If your daily projects are causing big problems and messes or if you have a wood business in your garage, a large capacity tank is better suited to your needs. The smaller portable vacuum cleaners are easy to stow away and are perfect for living in limited storage spaces.
