what vacuum do you use?

Okay so I'm just starting out on my own. I finally have clients calling but there is one weird thing that I'm most worried about. I have an upright vacuum. It works great, but I've noticed most companies have fancy canister vacuums which I can't afford yet. Do you think this will be an issue with the customer?

Upright vacuum cleaners is more than enough if you cannot afford a canister vacuum. The only difference is that upright cleaners are mainly used for cleaning carpets while canister vacuums are used to clean harder surfaces. Canister vacuums make less noise and because of this feature, it's expensive. Nowadays, both types of vacuum cleaners complement each others features. There won't be any big issue with the customer. You can carry on with upright vacuum cleaner, as of now

I have been using my Shark Professional Lift-Away for about 3 years now. It works super great and is lightweight. The canister lifts away to use on steps and has a special attachment for carpeted stairs or for hard to reach places. They have a newer version that may be a little more expensive but Im pretty sure you can fine the older version. I got mine at Walmart for about $225 but I think the price has come down.
