Top 4 Upright Vacuum Cleaners We Recommend For Carpets and Hard Floors


– Shark Lift-Away Upright Pet Vacuum NV612UKT

First on our list is Shark Lift-Away Upright Pet Vacuum NV612UKT – and this machine is indeed a great vacuum for pet owners. It is powerful, comes with a special pet hair attachment suitable for carpets and upholstery, and is even lightweight.

If you want, you can transform this vacuum into a cylinder very easy since the canister is detachable. We do love this vacuum cleaner because it is versatile and can almost be used as a cordless one but it still has the suction power of an upright vacuum.

It does have a light on the head so you can see hidden dust and impurities.

Another benefit of purchasing this machine is that it is bagless and easy to empty – and for the price of £189, you don’t have to think twice about buying it, just do it!


– Dyson Ball Animal 2 Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Of course, we can’t make a list of the best vacuum cleaners and not include Dyson, right? Their Dyson Ball Animal 2 Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner is very impressive and is priced at £330 which considering how amazing the machine is, the cost is reasonable.

Many people including our team of professional cleaners, swear by this machine and would even call it as one of the best upright vacuum cleaners on the market.

This model is great at removing dust, impurities, and even pet hairs due to its strong suction.

It comes with a motorized floorhead for cleaning carpets, a pet attachment for pet hair, a slimmer attachment for reaching under furniture, and even a telescopic extension.


– SEBO Felix White Art Upright Vacuum Cleaner

The most expensive vacuum cleaner on our list today is the SEBO Felix White Art Upright Vacuum Cleaner – £339. It’s so great that even professional cleaners use it even though it is marketed for domestic cleaning.

We have indeed been using this machine for a few months now and we can agree that it is the best – and even though it is pricey, it’s worth it.

If your home is big then we recommend you consider getting this vacuum due to its large capacity. It’s suitable for any floor including carpets.

The suction is excellent, the floorhead has a special L shape so you can reach and clean even corners of skirting boards.


– VAX Mach Air™ Revive Upright Vacuum Cleaner

And last on our list is the VAX Mach Air™ Revive Upright Vacuum Cleaner – a cheaper option in comparison to the rest on our list, however, it’s still an excellent choice. This vacuum cleaner is priced at around £89.

It is very simple, bagless, lightweight, and has a quiet motor. You do have to adjust the suction manually depending on how dirty the floor is and what it is made from but considering the price, this is normal.

We love that it comes with two attachments – one being a 3-in-1 brush that can act as an upholstery attachment, a dusting brush, and a crevice tool.

So if you don’t want a fancy vacuum cleaner and would prefer a more basic one that still gets the job done – we recommend this model!
