Why Kerstar Vacuum Cleaners Are So Popular

Kerstar vacuum cleaners can do more than just clean carpets. If you regularly undertake industrial cleaning jobs, then you can’t be emptying it out every two minutes. That’s why Kerstar vacuum cleaners are designed to hold between 9-100 litres, as opposed to the 2-3 litres of a standard vacuum.

All that extra space might seem shocking, but being shocked is something you won’t need to worry about when using Kerstar vacuums, as most types come with anti-static hoses.

You’re less likely to receive a static shock while using an anti-static hose, but you’re also less likely to suffer from dust build up. Over time, tiny pieces of fine dust can cling to the inside of standard hoses, will likely result in them needing to be cleaned more regularly.

The dust can’t cling to the inside of an anti-static hose, as no static exists; This makes cleaning much less of a chore.

There’s a couple of Kerstar vacuums that stand out for their unique features, which we’ll take a brief look at before moving into the history of Kerstar as a company.
