Hello, My wife has asked me to try and find a new vacuum for us but we have a unique situation. We live in a 2 story house with a laminate wood floor in our living room with tile in our kitchen and dining room. The stairs leading up to our second floor and hallway are carpet and the 3 bedrooms upstairs are carpet now but we are going to be putting wood down shortly. On top of that we have birds that make a mess. Which vacuum would you suggest would be best for us to clean up the mess from the birds along with being able to clean the carpet in the hallway and stairs? Thanks, Glenn

The SEBO Felix is a great upright machine. It not only is very easy to carry up and down stairs thanks to its long side handle (where the hose is stored), but it also is great on hardwood and bare floors. It comes with a great parquet brush which does a fantastic job on your hardwood. Also the neck of the machine is great, it rotates 180 degrees, giving you a lot of flexibility to get under beds, couches, tables, etc. As most upright models do these days, it has an instant use suction hose as well as a nice light that will illuminate when your brush roller isn't at an optimum height to clean your floors. The brush roller can also be turned off to clean your moor delicate floors. It is fairly lightweight and is also pretty sleek looking and doesn't take up much space. I highly recommend the SEBO Felix models as far as upright vacuums are concerned.

Buy the Riccar vacuum, it is made in America for American homes. 97% of vacuums are made overseas for foreign homes. Our way of living is totally different than say for example european homes. You need a vacuum that will create a mini earthquake infront of the vacuum. Suction only clean or remove loosened dirt, embeded dirt require a v acuum capable of loosining the embeded dirt, only than the suction can tranfer the dirt from point A to Point B. Definitly a canister based on the flooring you have.
