I need to make 2 purchases:

A vacuum cleaner with HEPA filter that is not too heavy.


A steam cleaner for carpet that I can do myself and gets hot enough to make real steam and has good exctraction.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

RE: HEPA vacuum and steam cleaner for carpet

I'm very happy with my dyson and it isn't heavy at all. Most complaints people have are people who don't ever change the post motor filter on a dyson, it's cheap change it once a year, less if it's not dirty and wash the reuseable one.

For a steam cleaner I use a hoover but it is not hot enough to create steam, but I didn't want one that could. Hot water i enough to clean carpets, the minute you bring steam in you risk setting a stain. If you really want one that will steam, I'm not sure.
