A dust buster vacuum is one of the most versatile cleaning tools that you can have in your home. These smaller, hand-held vacuums are perfect for spot cleaning and cleaning small spaces, such as your closet floor or your car. If you're in the market to buy one of these great little tools, you'll want to learn about them before you go shopping.

  • Check the voltage. The voltage is related to the suction power the vacuum has. Look for a unit with at least 9 volts, for maximum suction.

  • Pay attention to the attachments. Think about what you'll be using the vacuum for, and the attachments that you'll need to accomplish those tasks. For example, some vacuums have extra small attachments that make it easy to clean in very hard-to-reach places.

  • Buy a brand name you trust. There are several well-known vacuum cleaner brands that have proven themselves over time. If you've never heard of the brand, and it's really inexpensive, chances are it won't perform well.

  • Check how long the battery life is. Choose a unit that has as long a battery life as possible. There is nothing more annoying than getting half-way through a project and then having to plug your vacuum back in to rechargeit so you can finish the job.

  • Read customer reviews and consumer reports. Reading reviews written by people that have actually used the vacuum is one of the best ways to get an idea of how well it will work for you. It's also wise to check out reviews and reports by impartial organizations, to see how the machine you're interested in rates.

  • Check the return policy and warranty information. While dust buster vacuums are not that expensive, it's important to make sure you can return it if doesn't perform as you expect. Many come with at least a 1-year warranty.
