Every iteration of the Dyson DC65 upright vacuum cleaner
is versatile, powerful and has features that allow you to clean your entire home, floor to ceiling. As you can see in the picture to the left, the DC65's extendable hose and attachment wand will allow you to reach and clean even the top step with ease. You can practically use this upright like a canister vacuum. With its instant high-reach wand, extendable vacuum hose and 35 foot cord, you'll experience an incredible 51.7 foot cleaning radius.
Aside from being both powerful and versatile , the DC65 and every Dyson upright vacuum
are bagless machines that do not require frequent replacement of dust dust bags. Their vacuums are a great option for homeowners looking to try something different from traditional upright vacuums that use disposable bags.
The Sebo Automatic X4 upright vacuum
combines ultimate power with awesome versatility. This vacuum is great for stairs thanks to its flexible hose and extension wand. It also works well for other raised surfaces, such as counter tops and family room mantles. Additionally, you can use the optional Sebo 9'2"extension hose
and handheld turbo brush to help you remove pesky pet hair from carpeted staircases.
This upright vacuum uses a high-capacity filter bag that will last quite a while before it needs to be replaced. Additionally, Automatic X4 owners can use any one of the wide-array of Sebo vacuum attachments
we offer to help get the most out of their vacuum, such as the flat upholstery nozzle and aforementioned handheld turbo brush.
The Eureka Easy Clean 71B hand vacuum
is a quality handheld vacuum
that is great for cleaning stairs. This particular handheld vacuum is very useful because of its motorized brushroll, which is designed to kick up dirt and debris. It'll help you remove pet hair and other deep-seated dander.
Additionally, the Easy Clean 71B utilizes a 20-foot powercord that gives you all the reach you'll need to clean a full set of stairs. Also, unlike battery operated hand vacs, the aforementioned powercord offers you unlimited vacuum time, so you'll never run out of power halfway up the staircase. Additionally, it uses a permanent dust cup, which is convenient and easy to empty, and an effective, disposable filter.
A good cordless stick vacuum
is another great choice for cleaning stairs. Their lightweight nature makes them easy to carry up and down staircases. Many of them also feature a motorized brushroll, which is a must for carpeted staircases, especially if you are a pet owner.
Shown here is the Electrolux Ergorapido stick vacuum EL1014A
, and it is only one of many Electrolux models we offer. What's great about this model is that it is a 2-in-1 device that houses a detachable hand vacuum. The removable hand vac is great for cleaning step corners that you cannot reach with the main vacuum head. A fully charged Ergorapido should provide you enough battery power to clean an entire staircase top to bottom. The small, compact design of most stick vacuums also allows you to store them conveniently and quickly.
Existing owners of a canister vacuum
can upgrade their machine's stair cleaning ability by ordering an auxiliary hand power/turbo brush. Most major brands like Electrolux, Miele and Sebo offer an optional motorized or air-driven handheld attachment that is designed for cleaning upholstery and stairs.
The Electrolux Hand Power Brush EL8AS
, in particular, is an excellent attachment. Its motorized brushroll works great at removing pet hair and other stubborn dirt and debris from a carpeted staircase. It is practically a miniature power nozzle. Combined with a hose and telescopic wand, you'll be able to clean every single step effectively and thoroughly. If you happen to own an older Electrolux plastic or metal canister that uses metal wands, we also offer the Electrolux Sidekick I, which is an effective stair cleaning attachment. It'll connect directly into an electric hose handle, which makes it easy to use with precision.
