It's spammers googling vacuum cleaners and pasting links to their websites into replies. Those accounts should really be deleted.

Some considerations:

~ $150 roof
~ bagless preferred
~ good carpet cleaning is most important; hardwood cleaning not so much
~ must be good at picking up pet hair

The bestsellers in this category are the Hoover Wind Tunnel, Eureka Airspeed, and Bissel CleanView. But I have had several friends and coworkers rave to me about their Shark Navigator.

Any feedback on these? Other models you'd recommend checking out?


I use a Dyson DC25 for all those things. Its not perfect for use in cars, but it is good enough for picking up pet hair. Dysons are more expensive than other brands, but they are last longer. I've had mine for 8 years now and its still going strong.
I brought it from: httр://bestvacuumfortilefloors.com/dyson-vacuum/dyson-cordles-vacuums-compare-top-rated-cordless-vacuums
Hey,
I have the Dyson ball for about 2 years and its really good! Before Dyson I had one from Miele, which was not bad, but the filter bags were too expensive in the long run. I have 2 birds as pets, there comes a lot of dirt together, say 2-3 bags in a month, that is expensive to see year. That's the main reason why the purchase of a Dyson pays off for me.
As for its actual vacuuming performance, it's realy good, light AND powerful. I have to admit that I was a little concerned when I bought it but I I have to say my concerns were unfounded because this is an amazing vacuum cleaner and I love how light it is to carry around. I have not regretted the purchase.
You can read more about vacuum cleaners here: https://wisepick.org/best-bagged-vacuum/. On that site you will find a lot of tests and reviews from various brands. That may help you with the purchase decision.

I have antique hardwood floors, large staircase and a few area rugs. I’ve been using an electric broom that sometimes refuses to suck up the smallest piece of dirt. I’m concerned about scratching up my floors. What would you recommend?
