Wet/Dry Vacs Make Kitchen Cleanups Quick & Easy
Just what is that spill on your kitchen floor? Who knows? What we do know is that a wet/dry vacuum is perfect for handling just about any kitchen mess. Instead of going through an entire roll of paper towels or ruining your favorite dish linens, grab your Shop-Vac to get your kitchen back in order.
Handle Kitchen Messes with Your Shop-Vac Wet/Dry Vac
Between coffee grinds, dirt, spilled liquids, and dropped foods, kitchen floors and surfaces require frequent cleaning. Fortunately, your wet/dry vac can handle all those everyday messes. Remember: any time you use a wet/dry vac to pick up smelly messes, you have to thoroughly clean and rinse off exposed vac parts. This maintains performance and extends the lifespan of your equipment.
All you need to do is insert the hose, choose the appropriate attachment for the type of mess you’re cleaning up, and turn the vacuum on. Attachments include:
- Brushes – designed to remove fine dust and debris
- Crevice Tools – removes messes from grout joints
- Nozzles – ideal for pickup over large surface areas like floors and countertops
- Wands – useful for spills in hard-to-reach places, like under the refrigerator
With the right accessories, debris is lifted away instantly, and you can follow through with sanitation products as needed.
Beyond Kitchen Messes
Your Shop-Vac can handle more than everyday kitchen messes. For example, most people have dropped something down the drain, whether you were rinsing off a small kitchen gadget or a ring slipped off while doing dishes.
If you stopped running the water immediately, there is a good chance the item is sitting in the P-trap and could be close enough to retrieve it with your wet/dry vac. Simply seal your vac hose to the drain with the P-trap and, if applicable, seal the drain of adjoining sinks. Then, turn the vac on. You could find your missing item in the collection drum.
Which Wet/Dry Vac is Best for Kitchen Cleanup?
The type of Shop-Vac you choose for your kitchen depends on numerous factors, like available space and kinds of messes. From our smallest 1-gallon micro vac all the way up to vacs that hold 25 gallons, you’re guaranteed to find the size perfect for your kitchen. Looking to keep your home kitchen tidy? A smaller Shop-Vac can do the job. If you’re handling clean ups in an industrial-sized kitchen, you’ll likely want a larger drum for less frequent emptying.
No matter which model you choose, know that every Shop-Vac product is built to handle the toughest challenges around the house. To make sure your vac is equipped with everything you need, take a look at our accessories, so you everything you need on hand for your next cleanup mission.
No matter your cleaning routine, unexpected kitchen messes happen. Tackle those messes quickly with your Shop-Vac wet/dry vac and get back to cooking your favorite meals and sharing them with your family.
