Vacuum cleaner for deep carpets

Hi all,

We have just bought our first house, and we are putting the new carpets upstairs and on the staircase. My husband wanted the deepest, top of the range carpet as we have a small child and he thought it would be best for him. I don't mind that but I've never lived anywhere with carpets, only wooden floors, so I'm very inexperienced in cleaning them. I thought we could do with a new vacuum cleaner that would be good on those deep carpets, but have no idea which one to buy. We have no pets and are not planning on getting one anytime soon. In terms of budget I'm not sure I could justify spending £200-300 or even more on a vacuum cleaner, so was wondering if anyone could recommend a good one that costs in a region of £100-150 that works well on deep carpets. I don't mind whether it's upright or not, bagged or bagless, as long as its performance is excellent.

Many thanks

I've just purchased a Zanussi upright cleaner and it's fantastic on deep carpets.

Might be a bit out of your price range, but I have a Sebo, which is excellent. Upright with bags, but they take absolutely ages to fill up. Brilliant suction, and they go on forever.

Another vote for Sebo uprights. The only vacuum (other than my parents Kirby which was over £1000 new) that lifts the carpet up and gets deep into the carpet. Ours is over 20 years old now and has always cleaned well & never broken

Thank you all! Any other suggestions, just for comparison? smile

I had Dyson and now Sebo (sorry for not mentioning another brand!) and the Sebo can cope with any floor surface. Does deep pile brilliantly. Best vacuum I've had.

Ok, so after thinking long and hard about your recommendations, I decided to buy a Sebo. But which model? I'm lost again. I even called their customer service which politely asked me to google which model I like the most hmm (Very helpful. Not). So, any particular model which will suit my deep pile carpets? It's on the stairs as well so easy stairs cleaning feature is essential. Thanks again

X4 Extra! Brilliant on deep pile carpet. It has a built in computer and will automatically adjust to different carpets. It also comes with a full stair extension hose so you can leave the machine at the bottom of the stairs and clean all the way to the top without lifting it

Have a watch of this, it's a good demonstration

another vote for the Sebo upright, it's really good on thick carpets.

Mine developed the 'cutting out' fault that some of the reviews talk about. I wouldn't buy another.
