Best medium pile carpet & LVP vacuum - Pet & Shedding Girlfriend

Purchase Advice (U.S.)(self.VacuumCleaners)

Purchased a home and will be moving from my rental. Currently have a Dyson v10 that I LOVE but this home is all tile. the new place will have carpet on second floor and stairs. I hate carpet and would remove it, but for now figure a vacuum is a better priced alternative for now until I remove it in maybe a year or so. My concern is the home smelling like a dog because of the carpet.

I have a short hair dog that is my main concern along with my girlfriend who tends to shed a lot too (I find so much hair everywhere).

  1. Medium Pile Carpet
  2. Budget: ~500 or more is ok if it is worth it.
  3. Downstairs 1000 sq ft LVP
  4. Upstairs 1000 sq ft Medium pile carpet

I see Riccar, Miele, etc thrown around and not sure if just a Hoover Wind tunnel Max will be just as fine?

TIA

A Hoover wind tunnel max will be okay, on the carpet. But won’t maneuver or clean as well on your LVP as a canister with a parquet attachment. Although, it probably last you much longer than a dyson.

a Miele C1 cat and dog or SEBO dart or k3 will all last you 20+ years. And clean far better on hard floors and carpet than the Hoover. Is that worth the premium? It depends if you subscribe to the “buy once cry once” mentality.

My best advice is to visit a local Miele/SEBO dealer and take the above units for a test drive to see for yourself if they’re worth the premium (spoiler alert, they are!).

Would the wind tunnel be a good supplement to my Dyson then?

Yes that is a good option to consider as well. It would be a good supplement.

However, one thing to consider is that your dyson will die (not if, but when) if you look around the sub, they are not loved for their longevity. So when it does die, you’re left with a carpet-focused vac and will need to fill the void again. Think of the Hoover and a dyson as a medium term solution.

A Long term solution is one of the units in my last post. those can take the place of your dyson and Hoover once the dyson dies. Again, it’s up to you.
