Best Vacuum for this Low Price !
February 16, 2016
If you don't like choking on poofs of dust when you turn on your vacuum, have sensitive ears, and like clean floors. . . this vaccum is for you. I use it on the lowest power setting most of the time, which is very powerful and extremely quiet, and guests can even hear the television! Plus, this vacuum is very stylish (if that counts for you), and I got the blue one. I have a Miele at my other residence, and can say that I like this Prolux just as well and it costs about 1/8 of the price of a Miele. I like that this Prolux has a great filtration system and dust stays confined. I have a very sensitive sinus area, and can tell if even one speck of dust poofs out of a vacuum. In the old days, when I used a Hoover upright, I always choked when I turned the vacuum and saw dust coming out of the bag. Obviously, the supposedly very efficient brands with no bags and canisters that you empty when full, would never work for someone with allergies. If you have dust allergies, this Prolux if a good choice. I would recommend buying the option that has the motorized vacuum head if you have lots of carpet, but the regular head that comes with it works great on hard wood floors. I bought an after market 10" wide brush attachment for this Prolux to use on my hard wood floors and it works great. As a note, the barrel of this Prolux seems to be a little wider than 1 1/4", so if you purchase an additional after market brush, look for 1 1/2" attachments. I didn't see many 1 1/2" attachments on Amazon to purchase, so I had to purchase an adapter. On AMAZON, I purchased "Hardwood Floor Brush 1 1/4" with soft bristles vacuum cleaner attachment 10" wide" and "Mr. Nozzle Part #17 Vacuum Hose Adapter".
