I much prefer a bagless vacuum. Its easy to empty, and I dont have to buy bags. If I hired someone to clean my own home, I would hope that this person didnt bring a vacuum in that already has a half full bag of someone elses dirt! YUCK!

When I first got into house cleaning, I bought an upright Oreck. Its an excellent vacuum, but it has several drawbacks. One - it is heavy and hard for a 100 lb woman like me to lift. Two - it requires bags and they are NOT cheap. Three: it doesnt maneuver into tight spaces like my wand-style Sharks do.

In the average home, an upright may not be the best choice. They are great on wall to wall carpeting, but simply are too bulky to fit into tight spaces. And even if you have carpeting, NO vacuum will truly get the far edges of each carpet, and over time, you will see a grayish line forming along each wall. This is just dust which has settled in. When THAT happens, its time to call a professional carpet cleaner.
I would guess that for a cleaning company, having several types of vacuums would be of help. Upright AND wand. See, the wand types offer a lot more attachments, to help with specific jobs, where most uprights dont have this at all. Some of Sharks uprights do have attachments, but they STILL cannot get into really small spaces, like between furniture. I own all these types, and some jobs require one, others another. That is just the way it is, because I care about doing things well.

I cannot believe how many trollers are answering your question. Really makes this web site less than useful. For a vacuum cleaner you are going to be running it constantly so you want to get a commercial vac if you want it to last. Second thing is that you want an upright vac. Canister vacs are just too slow and cumbersome for commercial operations. Stay away from backpack vacs also as you will create ergonomic problems for your workers as well. There are a number of good brands. I would just shop them for the best deal and warranty.

Yes, they do still sell shag type area rugs AND wall to wall. Never thought THAT would happen, but I didnt think Bell bottom jeans would come back, and they did! I have not found a single vacuum cleaner that will clean a shag-type rug. Either they "eat" the rug, or you just cannot MOVE the vacuum cleaner through the "jungle." Shag rugs should be banned! LOL!

Cool

Some of the commercial vacs have fabric bags as well as the paper disposables.

I always kept a fabric bag in my van just in case I ran low on paper bags or just forgot to pick more up.

It's a great backup because you always have it,it can be washed plus you can use it as many times as you want.

It's worth the money to buy.

I used Windsor Sensor commercial vacs. They have metal fan blades.

Most hotels have shallow pile carpets so the backpack would work well. Some hotels have both types of carpets so you may need one of each.

Hope this helps.
I agree...

Shark Rotator is a good option. It will help you get rid of pet hairs too. I use it on a daily basis to clean my living room. It works well on couches, carpet, and hardwood flooring. So I think it is a good bet if you don't have a favorite vacuum brand already in your mind. You might want to look at these shark vacuum reviews to make a better decision.

A Dyson vacuum cleaner has many great features that making cleaning floor surfaces easy. They promote the fact that the Dyson vacuum cleaners do not lose suction power and from all reports this may be true. In addition they have some unique features that save time and increase cleaning efficiency.

The handle on the Dyson easily removes and becomes an extended cleaning tool that can reach up to 17 feet from the vacuum base. Best of all it features a unique handle that makes this tool easy to use. Additional tool heads attached to handle to make this a very versatile tool to reach up the stairs, ceiling corners, under furniture or appliances.

I would strongly suggest you buy a vacuum with a bright headlight. Before I used one I was sure I was getting everything. But when I got a new vac with a headlight, I was horrified to see how much I had missed. Using it on the job has helped me improve my results greatly, bec ause I now SEE so much more.
