An upright vacuum cleaner is a good choice if you’ve got large areas of carpet to clean. Upright cleaners use suction together with  the beating action of the rotating, motorised brush to loosen and remove dirt. The beater gives finish and helps to lift the carpet pile. They are usually heavier  than cylinders but glide over the floor so can be just as easy to use and often have larger dust bags so don’t need emptying so often. Many models have tools/attachments for special tasks/awkward corners.

Most of the models we stock have variable power control, on-board tool storage, adjustable height settings, bag-full indicator, easy to replace dust bags and permanent/washable filters.  Reliable and efficient makes  include AEG and Sebo.
