Miele Dynamic U1 Twist



Miele S7210 ReviewThe Miele U1 Twist upright vacuum cleaner provides the ideal machine for cleaning both bare surfaces and carpet with ease.  As the name suggests, this Miele vacuum cleaner has a swivel neck allowing it to twist, and move in every direction with a simple turn of the wrist.  For added convenience when cleaning those hard to reach spots, the Miele U1 Twist  features the flat-to-the-floor function so that dust does not remain elusive underneath the furniture throughout your home.  With its powerful, 1200 Watt Miele Vortex motor and dual filtration system, along with the option of a HEPA filter, the Miele twist vacuum is the ideal choice for any home, regardless of the dominant surface.

SEBO Automatic X4

 


SEBI X4 ReviewThe SEBO Automatic X4 upright vacuum provides unmatched motor power when compared to other machines of a similar style.  The 1300 Watt motor, in conjunction with the hospital grade filtration, makes this SEBO vacuum cleaner the ideal choice for residential homes, apartments and condominiums.  Upon being tested, the Automatic X4 was found to do a very substantial job on bare floors, and an even more outstanding job on carpets.  As an added bonus, the X4 SEBO vacuum has a 5 1/2 inch profile when utilizing its flat-to-the-floor function, making it a snap to clean underneath the beds, couches and chairs around your home.

Eureka SmartVac 4870



Eureka 4870 ReviewsThe Eureka 4870 Boss SmartVac upright  vacuum offers HEPA filtration and a deluxe, 15 inch power head in order to provide the widest cleaning path when vacuuming.  This has proven to make the 4870 Eureka vacuum cleaner formidable on hard surfaces, but noticeably better on carpets and rugs.  For every other surface in your home, the on-board tools, which include a crevice tool and a dusting/upholstery tool, provide unmatched convenience and quality.  In fact, the Eureka Pet Power Paw turbo attachment provides a deep cleaning of upholstery and stair treads, and is especially useful for pet owners.  For the low price tag attached, the 4870 Eureka SmartVac lives up to its name, and is definitely a smart purchase to consider.

Kirby Sentria



Kirby Sentria ReviewsAlthough the Kirby Sentria may at first not seem "in the cards" due to its heavyweight nature, it certainly adds to its longevity.  This particular Kirby vacuum, as with its predecessors, is steel constructed, making it one of the most durable machines on the market.  As a result, these vacuum cleaners are projected to last users upwards of 30 years in some cases.  The HEPA vacuum bags and available attachments make the Kirby Sentria an amazing companion in the battles against pet hair as well.  This Kirby vacuum glides effortlessly over carpets and rugs by agitating deep-seated dirt, and rendering the surface like new.  It is also an ideal machine for use on hard surface floors, but needs to be converted to a canister vacuum in order to obtain the full effect; this is the only reason for its initial "fair" rating in the bare floor category.

7. 

Panasonic MC-UG327



Panasonic MC-UG327 ReviewThe Panasonic MC-UG327 upright vacuum cleaner is one of the more excellent machines for users with pets that tend to shed more than the desired amount.  The wide 13 inch cleaning path allows for large areas to be cleaned more efficiently, while the on-board, turbine pet hair tool helps to quickly remove pet hair from stair treads and upholstery.  With its HEPA filtration and optiflow technology, the MC-UG327 optimizes both bag and filter usage, which are ideal features for a pet vacuum.  Although the MC-UG327 Panasonic upright vacuum is capable of cleaning hard surface floors, it is much more effective for use on carpeted areas.  

8. 

Riccar Vibrance VIBDL.2



Riccar Vibrance ReviewsThe Riccar Vibrance upright vacuum, model VIBDL.2, is a top choice for homes that consist of both bare floors and carpeting.  In tests it was found that this Riccar vacuum fared better than other uprights on hard surface floors, thanks to its bare floor setting and metal brush roller; it also glides over carpets effortlessly.  In addition to the success found cleaning various floor types, the on board tools made cleaning any remaining surfaces a cinch.  These on board tools, the metal brush roller and overall performance power will be enough to convince any cleaning advocate of its quality.  If not, then maybe the HEPA filtration, and usefulness as a pet vacuum will!

9. 

Eureka AirSpeed AS1051A



Eureka AirSpeed ReviewsThe Eureka AirSpeed AS1051A upright vacuum has been found to be a great machine for a predominantly carpeted home.  It is more than capable of maintaining bare floors as well, but is noticeably more effective on carpets and rugs.  The pet power paw turbo brush and charcoal HEPA filtration also make this Eureka vacuum a great choice for pet owners.  The filter helps to absorb any bothersome odors, while the pet power paw removes any deep seated pet hair or dander from upholstery and stair treads.  If you're in search of a pet vacuum within a lower price range, the AS1051A Eureka AirSpeed vacuum cleaner is a superb machine to consider.

10. 

Cirrus CR79



Cirrus Vacuum ReviewsUpon testing, it was found that the CR79 Cirrus upright vacuum cleaner is efficient at cleaning bare floors, but noticeably better at maintaining the cleanliness of carpets and rugs.  The "Touch N' Go" feature of this machine makes it easier than ever for an upright vacuum to transition from carpeting to bare floors.  Although this Cirrus model is on the heavier side, the sturdy ABS material it is made from only adds to its durability.  For added convenience, the Cirrus CR79 vacuum cleaner has the option of a HEPA filter and even has on board attachments to reduce the hassle of searching for them throughout your home.
