Recommend a Vacuum Cleaner?
Would an upright or canister vacuum work better for me
And anyone have any recommendations?

and mops just piss me off. And those swiffer things... I got many rooms to clean.. I can't be changing pads every time I sweep/mop.
This is a house.. not a condo or apartment.
But if vacuums aren't ideal for my situation.. that I may just have to put up with mopping.
Thanks for the recommendation and taking the time to answer.

especially for stairs they are easier to deal with.
also since you don't have carpets you don't need the beater bars that are standard on upright vacuums.
So i would suggest a canister with a good smooth floor head. Miele vacuums are great, last a long time and have great filtration system.

are you serious? uprights have wheels too since all the weight of the upright rest on the head they use support wheels.InfinitSilver wrote: ↑I have the same issue. All my first floor is hardwood. Why do you recommend canister vacuum and not upright one? I cannot imagine dragging canister vacuum all over hardwood floor, it may scratch or something and create so much noise. Why upright vacuum does not work for this purpose???

This so called "buying guide" from Canadian Tire: http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/Research ... acuumGuide
says a canister vacuum would fit my needs.
The only thing I'm afraid of, similar to the previous post is that the wheels might scratch the floors. I'm probably just paranoid.
Any specific Miele model you guys use and recommend? I should probably visit a local vacuum store to get more info.

Thanks. That was very informative.The_Madz wrote: ↑
and as i mentioned before, canisters tend to be easier to deal with for stairs and you can get a head for the vacuum just for hardwoods instead of dealing with a hybrid beater bar head you find on uprights which you can not change out.
any of the Miele vacuums will do you.
S2's are their entry level vacuums sold at places like the bay and futureshop
S4's are lightweight vacuums sold only at Miele vacuum centers geared towards hardwood and smooth floors.
S5's have electric connections suitable if you ever get carpets.
there is also an S700 at costco, it's assembled in china compared to the others which are made in germany.
personally for your needs i would probably either go with a base S2 or an S4. the S4 special edition midnight purple is a nice one and normally retails around the $499 mark.

But, if you have a lot of hardwood floor (as I do), don't use a vacuum, nor a mop with a lot of water. I would suggest a dry static mop, or try the Swiffer Vac, which will pick up the dust, but doesn't scratch the floor the way a vacuum rolling back and forth will.
