Vacuum experts needed!!
I am now in a house with primarily harwood and tile, but have some area rugs. After much research on this web site and looking at stores, I purchased a Meile Neptune and absolutely love it for the hard surfaces--best vacuum I've ever owned, but it doesn't do a good job on the area rugs and knew that when I bought it.
I'm now in the market for something great for the area rugs. I'm thinking I probably need an upright, but would love to hear any suggestions. Liz
