The Rubbermaid Commercial 9VPH12 12″ Power Height upright vacuum cleaner has a self-adjusting brush roll for vacuuming carpets and hard surfaces, a 12-inch cleaning path, a removable nozzle for cleaning and service, and two rear wheels for maneuverability. Upright vacuums are better suited for cleaning carpets than typical canister vacuums and take up less space for storage. The vacuum’s 1.8-horsepower dual motor helps clean the floor in a single pass to reduce vacuuming time. During operation, the brush roll raises and lowers automatically to adjust to different surfaces; the brush roll motor shuts off when the handle is in the upright position to help keep the machine from running unnecessarily. The handle can be lowered to a flat position with a foot pedal at the base of the unit to vacuum under tables, beds, and chairs. The power button is located on the top of the handle. The vacuum cleaner includes a crevice tool and an upholstery tool stored onboard for use in different cleaning tasks.
This vacuum has an onboard diagnostic system of red and green electronic indicator lights that illuminate in seven different patterns to alert to and help identify common issues such as a blocked hose, a full bag, and a jammed brush roll. It has a wrap-around bumper to help prevent damage to walls and furniture, a carry handle for transport, and a cord-wrap that holds the cord for storage. The 40-foot power cord enables the vacuum to cover a larger area without changing outlets than vacuums with shorter cords, and has a grounded plug to help protect against electric shock.
This vacuum collects debris in an included 5.63-quart disposable paper bag, which has an elastic collar that connects tightly to the dirt-tube to help keep debris inside the bag. This product is CRI Green Label certified for low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions to help improve indoor air quality, and it also has a CRI Seal of Approval for soil removal and indoor air quality. It can help earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Existing Building (EB) credits for cleaning equipment. The vacuum requires simple tools-free assembly; instructions included.

A vacuum cleaner is a machine that uses an air pump to create a partial vacuum in order to suck up dust, dirt, and debris from floors and other surfaces. The dirt is collected in a disposable bag, a cyclone, or another chamber for disposal. Intake and exhaust air is usually filtered through a cloth, polyethylene, or paper membrane to keep dust particles from clogging the motor or being released back into the air. HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) and ULPA (Ultra Low Penetration Air) filters are used for applications that require the filtration of very fine particles. Vacuum cleaners are available in a variety of styles, including upright vacuums, canister vacuums, backpack vacuums, and wet and dry vacuums. Vacuum cleaners may have residential, commercial, or industrial applications. Commercial and residential vacuums often include attachments like a hard floor nozzle, a crevice tool, an upholstery nozzle, and a dust brush for different cleaning tasks. Commercial vacuums are designed to clean large, heavily-trafficked areas like office buildings and retail spaces, and so are typically more powerful and durable that vacuum cleaners designed for home use. Industrial vacuum cleaners are large stationary or truck-mounted machines used in a range of industries such as abrasive blast recovery, roof rock removal, asbestos and hazardous waste removal, steel mills, and shipyards.
Rubbermaid manufactures cleaning, organizing, and material handling products for commercial, medical, and industrial applications. The company, founded in 1933, is headquartered in Huntersville, NC.
