Choosing the best vacuum for your situation

First I want to know what kind of floor surface you have. If you have hardwood or tile floors, oriental carpets, wool or shag carpeting, etc.  I want to be able to direct you to the best vacuum to meet your needs.

Another issue is strength, a heavy vacuum like a Kirby or other larger upright might do a great job, but if it’s a challenge to get it out of the closet and up and down stairs you won’t use it. Many cleaning services prefer backpack vacuums. Personal preference matters; some people like uprights and some like canister vacuums and some insist on a central vacuum.

I also want to know what kind of vacuum you have now. Why did you choose your present vacuum? What do you like about it and what would you like to improve?

Sometimes the solution isn’t a new vacuum. Sometimes all you need is a turbo vacuum head or specialized cleaning tools. Vacuums perform better if they are cleaned and serviced occasionally. Maybe your vacuum is clogged with dirt, dust and allergens and all it needs is a good cleaning and servicing.

There are some very reasonably priced vacuums that provide good cleaning results and some high-priced vacuums that clean even the deepest dirt and allergens out of the carpet.  Working within your budget is important. More important is finding a vacuum that cleans to your satisfaction in your price range.

No matter what your preference is, we can help you to find the right vacuum to fit your needs.

  1. My current vacuum cleaner is a Dyson, the animal series. It has a great suction and personally I quite like it. It’s light enough that I can use it everyday without a problem and It actually do a pretty good job, considering I have two kids and a dog running around the house. The only downside probably is the price.

      Hi Jane, I am so glad you are happy with your vacuum. You are so fortunate that your family doesn’t suffer from allergies! It seems like 75% of my customers have allergies. Your bagless machine should be fine for you, just make sure to get your bagless machine serviced regularly to clean out those germ-trapping little fingers in the machine. You will know when it is overdue, because there will be a distinctive odor when you vacuum. At minimum get it serviced once a year. If you leave it go too long; the pet odors work their way into the motor and then it is near impossible to get the machine completely clean. I hope you have many happy and allergy free years with your vacuum!
