Vacuum Cleaners for Carpeting

Upright Vacuums
Canister

What makes a good vacuum cleaner for carpets?

If you have carpet in your home what you need is a vacuum that has a spinning brush roll on the bottom. This allows the bristles on the brush roll to remove debris from the fibers in your carpet. This also allows the vacuum to be pushed and maneuvered easier. Vacuums that use only suction do not perform well on medium or high pile carpeting and are much harder to push on these surfaces.

 

Upright Vacuums for Carpeting

Upright vacuums are ideal for users with mostly carpeted surfaces. Upright vacuums provide a lot of power and suction ability. This gives a deep-down to the base of the carpeting clean- what suction only vacuums are not capable of doing. Most upright vacuums come with separate attachments allowing users to clean specialty areas as well.

Canister Vacuums for Carpeting

Canister Vacuums are the most versatile way of cleaning flooring as you can choose the height of the carpeting head. There are 2 types of canisters: Canisters with electric power heads and canisters with air driven, suction only carpeting heads. Canisters with electric driven power heads are the ideal and recommended method for cleaning all pile carpeting. Canister vacuums are usually ligher in weight and can sometimes be more versatile for cleaning stairs and other hard to reach areas.

Are all vacuums with a brush roll the same?

The main difference between vacuums is filtration, accessories and quality. Most vacuums with a brush roll will clean carpeting good, but you need to choose one that fits your needs and budget. Some vacuums boast HEPA filtration while others come with specialty tools for different cleaning needs. The rule of thumb here is you truly get what you pay for. More expensive vacuums typically last longer and clean your homes flooring and air better.

Canister or upright vacuum: What’s best vacuum for carpeting?

Canister vacuums perform better on carpets with a higher pile, this is because the power head pushes lighter on the tall carpet fibers. Customers who require a bit more versatility usually enjoy canister vacuums, this is because flooring tools and attachments can easily be switched out for specialty cleaning needs.

Upright vacuums perform great in homes with wall to wall carpeting. Typically they have aggressive brush rolls that remove dirt and grime from fibers. Most upright vacuums also come with extra tools so users can support their specialty cleaning needs.

There is no correct answer here. You just need to make the choice that best suits your cleaning needs.

Our suggested canister and upright vacuums for carpets

We have selected some vacuums we like for both canister and upright vacuum styles. Each vacuum varies in price and function but we trust you will be happy with the quality of all the vacuums listed below…

Vacuums for households with lots of hair

Having done repairs for many years we see many vacuums and the problems that arise. One major problem is hair causing brush roll malfunctions. The hair gets wrapped around the brush roll and then melts, causing the roll to seize up and stop turning. To combat this we recommend a vacuum that has a metal brush roll. Plastic and wooden brush rolls tend to fall victim to this problem more often. The exception to this rule lies in Miele brand vacuums. In our years of experience we find the plastic Miele brush rolls have little to no problems with hair causing brush roll seizure.

Some carpets void warranty for certain vacuum brands

When choosing the right vacuum for your carpet please consider the following. Some carpet brands will only value their warranties if a certain brand or type of vacuum is used. Using the wrong brand can void the warranty and damage your carpet fibers. This is usually caused by the brush roll’s bristles and the firmness they posses. Be sure to research your carpet’s warranty before purchasing a vacuum.

Our suggested favorites for carpeting and why

We have elected to feature Miele vacuums as our favorites because of the positive customer feedback and our personal use experience. Miele vacuums offer industry leading 7-10 yr warranties (depending on model) and are put through rigorous tests ensuring extended durability and function.

Miele S7 upright vacuums are our favorite for customers looking for the highest quality upright vacuums. Swivel neck technology makes the upright vacuums maneuver around your furniture with ease. From the top level filtration, to their outstanding warranty and lifespan, there is no question you will love your Miele S7 vacuum.

For the canister style machine we recommend any Miele that has a SEB 228 or SEB 236 power head. Both these power nozzles offer superior carpet cleaning function. The power heads have separate motors that run the brush rolls and have five different height adjustments for all piles of carpet. The light weight of the power nozzles make for great cleaning and pushing ease on higher pile carpets.
