While in the market for a vacuum cleaner, you may find yourself overwhelmed by all the different brands and types out there. Naturally, eVacuumStore has heard and answered a lot of questions after being in business for over 15 years. By far, the most frequently asked question is, “which vacuum cleaner is best for my carpet?”
Warm and inviting, plush carpet is designed using a soft yet durable weave with a pile height of 1/4 to 1/2 inches. Commonly placed in living rooms and dens, a plush carpet has a natural cushioning effect perfect for playing a game on the floor or giving your pampered pooch a tummy rub. Plush carpeting can outlive many other carpet types, provided it’s properly maintained.
Our newest Miele canister vacuum, the Miele Complete C3 SoftCarpet, features a special SoftCarpet setting ideal for cleaning plush carpets. Using just the right amount of airflow, the Miele SEB228 SoftCarpet Electrobrush effortlessly glides across without unattractive tracks being left behind. Wider than a ruler, its 14 inch cleaning path cuts cleaning time in half without sacrificing accuracy. If you sense the power nozzle going too fast or too slow, simply adjust the height with the tap of your foot!
Wool Berber Carpet
Woven from sheep fur, wool berber carpet is a non-toxic, hypoallergenic carpet seen more often in stores as opposed to family homes. It’s soft to the touch and has a cushioned feel under your feet. Our office lobby is lined with wool berber carpet and it still looks good as new after many years of vacuuming!
Most often, we find ourselves fetching a Miele to clean everything from small pickups to wide scale messes. Our favorite, the Miele Dynamic U1 Twist, features a rotary dial with four settings to match all types of surfaces. Since our wool berber carpet has a pile height of less than 1/4 inches, we turn the rotary dial to low-pile when it’s time to vacuum. Our bathroom, which obviously isn’t carpeted, is lined with durable white ceramic tile. For this, we turn off the brushroll using the rocker switch on the ergonomic handle so we don’t scratch or scratch the floors.
With twice the fibers per strand than ordinary carpet, softspring carpet is a durable yet soft medium to high-pile carpet type commonly purchased from Home Depot. Made out of nylon or triexta, this carpeting is eco-friendly, easy to clean, and less likely to become matted as time marches on.
Given its medium to high-pile height, we recommend the MayTag M1200 upright vacuum for your home. Boasting two motors, the Maytag 1200 is a powerful yet quiet vacuum that features a lifetime Kevlar belt and six settings of manual height adjustment. Assembled in the USA, you can rest easy knowing you’re going to receive a high-quality product that’s going to last many years.
Founded in 1878, Mohawk is the world’s largest flooring company that sells everything from luxury vinyl to soft carpet. Their carpets are soft, easy to clean, and come in a variety of shapes and designs. Made in the USA, we are not shocked to hear that many of our customers own a carpet by Mohawk.
A high-quality carpet and high-quality vacuum cleaner naturally go together. With that said, we recommend the Miele Complete C3 Brilliant for all your cleaning needs. Digital controls are found right on the ergonomic handle and there is even an automatic suction setting that adjusts the airflow to any surface without you having to think about it. Its power nozzle, the SEB236 Electro Premium Powerhead, comes equipped with an LED headlight that illuminates your path while cleaning underneath beds and couches.
Tigressa carpet is a soft, durable carpet style with more filaments per fiber bundle to increase resistance to stains and wear. Shaped like human hair, its unique structure gives this carpet type a smooth appearance that is soft to the touch. Made exclusively using nylon, tigressa carpet is an eco-friendly choice found in many of our customer’s homes.
To adequately take care of it, we recommend purchasing the Miele Complete C3 Kona. This canister vacuum cleaner features six levels of digital suction control that can be adjusted with a tap of the +/- buttons on the face of the vacuum. Its generous 36 ft power cord provides you with a wide cleaning radius that eliminates the need to insert and remove your plug multiple times while vacuuming. Together with the included Miele SEB228 Power Nozzle that boasts a 14 inch cleaning path, this vacuum strongly communicates the message: ‘get your cleaning done faster without sacrificing accuracy’.
One of the largest manufacturers of wall to wall carpet in North America, Beaulieu sells all kinds of residential and commercial flooring. Beaulieu carpeting can be patterned, looped or twisted and is constructed out of nylon, polyester or polypropylene fibers.
To keep it in tip-top condition, we recommend purchasing the Miele Dynamic U1 Jazz. This upright vacuum features four suction settings and a bright LED headlight for cleaning underneath couches and beds. Thanks to a large 5.45 quart bag capacity, you can clean every room of your home multiple times over and still have plenty of space to vacuum some more!
When you think about it, a vacuum and a carpet really ought to be married to one another. After all, a vacuum would not exist if there weren’t floor surfaces to clean, and carpeting would grow dirty and grimy rather quickly if no vacuum was there to clean it. If you need help purchasing the first component of this ‘marriage’, please don’t hesitate to check out eVacuumStore or dial 1-866-972-8227 to speak with a trained vacuum specialist.
