consider a shop vac. Rigid makes a compact 5 horse power which is suitable for residential work. A variety of attachments are available to handle any task you might be confronted with. I use only Rigid jumbo's in New Home Construction Cleaning. They save me a huge amount of time which translates into greater $$$

I'd recommend a dual motor upright vacuum - (1 motor is the vac motor, the other for the brushroll/beater bar). With a dual motor upright, you'll be sure to have the necessary suction and agitation. The only major drawback of course is the extra weight associated with the additional motor.

I can't believe nobody has recommend a ducted vac (central vacuum in US). We sell them at my site. They are reliable and last on average for 10-15 years. And when they do break you just need a new vacuum motor, or to replace the filters. A much cheaper option in the long run for your own home. Obviously, not possible if you're running a cleaning company. That said, imagine how much you could save a prospective company if they were installed and you weren't passing on the costs of buying a new portable every few months.

Firstly know that which type of vacuum cleaner you need and which is best and suitable according to your carpet. You have to notice following things before buying any vacuum cleaner:
How often do you vacuum?
How much power do you need?
Which style is best?
Any special features to look out for?
Which type of fiber used in your carpet?

My advice when it comes to buying vacuums is just to simply check reviews online for the vacuum that you are willing to buy, if you see the reviews as negative then there is a good chance that your investment on that new vacuum you are going to adquire is not going to be worthwhile.

Also, ask your friends and family what they think about their vacuums and whether or not it has given them problems, if the answer is positive then consider buying that brand, if it is negative keep searching
