There’s nothing like using the right tool for the right job! In order for us to make a recommendation to you, we need to know what your cleaning needs are.

We’ve put together several floor types which are found in most homes, taking into account customers different vacuum styles (yes… we’re not kidding… people have different styles when it comes to vacuuming). We have also included our recommendations to you. If you are not able to find a scenario which fits what you have at home, please give us a call at 831-917-9441 and we can spend time discussing your needs and give you advice on what we believe will work best for you. Or if you prefer, take a few moments to fill out our HMD (Help me decide) form and we will contact you within 12 hours with a recommendation. We want to be sure you purchase what’s right for you!
