Recommendation for Good Upright Vacuum
I just found your website and it’s fantastic!
My fiancé has
Geographic psoriasis (or Psoriasis Vulgaris) over 85% of his body (so he
spreads himself around a lot :-). We’ve
got hardwood/vinyl floors over most of the house and have discovered the
Dirt Devil 12-amp Breeze Canister vacuum is fabulous for it’s ability to
vacuum our bed then — presto
change-o — it becomes a handy floor vacuum.
What I’d like
to find, however, are good recommendations for upright vacuums that would
be really good for the carpets in the house.
I’m currently using a Eureka World Vac which is fine, but I can
see that’s it’s not getting up all the dust/skin.
Any help you
can give would be appreciated. Sincerely,
Response: Good question,
Sharon. I’ve found no
particularly dazzling upright vacuums in my price range.
I’m stuck with an older model Dirt Devil bag’n’canister
upright (about 11 amps, I think) that just refuses to die.
I have a son-in-law who sells Rainbow vacuum cleaners (patented
suck-through-water technology) that, for $1,500, would ... wait, stop
I told him
making me part with my daughter was one thing — but parting me from
$1,500 is quite another. (Just
I’ve pretty much decided that my approach to control dander dust and
flake build up is going to have to be more
dust mites. I’m looking
for a biology lab supply company now that will sell me a few million of
those buggers without requiring me to have a research institution purchase
order number. This might be
difficult in today’s condition of heightened security.
If anybody is particularly fond of a good carpet vacuum, please send me an email. We need to take care of this before Sharon wears out her bed vacuum on her floors! (Thanks, Sharon. <wink>) -Ed
