Sebo vacuum cleaners are EXCELLENT as Helo says, we have commercial ones to clean our house. I am a carpet cleaner and use them in the trade and as you can see practice what I preach!!
Sebo machines out perform any other brand available today. They are the only machines to remove deeply embedded grit from a carpet thus extending the carpets life some what considerably! Also filtration is good, S-class hospital standard.
They not only filter the allergens but pick them up also.
They way out perform the cheap plasticy Dysons, and work how a vacuum should, also computer controlled height adjustment on domestic models and computer guided on commercial models.
Highly recommended, people often ask me what cleans a carpet the best and ALWAYS recommend Sebo, often get asked about Dysons but people do not like to hear the truth about them, piles of junk all round!! (Sorry Mr Dyson but they just don't work, and I bet you know it).
PS. I bought my Mum two Sebos (JohnsonDiversey Ensign 360 Contract and JohnsonDiversey Ensign SM1) after having Dysons for years, the Sebo filled a bag with grit and other fine dust the Dysons had failled to remove, the carpets look a million times cleaner, there is about 90% less dust on the furniture in a week as it is all removed from the carpets properly. She is extremely pleased with the machines, and thats saying something.
