Vacuum Cleaner Recommendation Needed ASAP Please
We have lots of stairs, lots of hardwood floor everywhere & a few area rugs.
I need a good vacuum which can easily handle all those things - sweep stairs, sweep floor, etc. . We have no pets and I do not anticipate any.
Do you love your vacuum? Hate your vacuum and think I should avoid it?
I am assuming something not too heavy would be the way to go with all those stairs. I hear cannisters are better if you have lots of stairs. True? We have lots of stairs but other wood floor square footage more than stairs. There are no runner/rugs on the stairs.
Model numbers needed, as that is more helpful than "I love my Miele cannister", as there are 50 different Miele cannisters.
I don't want to overbuy a ton of parts I won't use, but think something to handle the hardwood without stripping off my finish (new floors), something which will really clean the rugs but not destroy them and something soft - maybe or the baseboard trim are good ideas.
Please bring on the info and advice. Please tell me anything you know about brands, types, styles - anything to help with my selection.
I want to know the good & the bad.
