Buying a Vacuum?

When our vacuum broke a few years back I was convinced that I should purchase a Dyson. In the midst of researching which Dyson would work best for our home - a combination of wood floors and carpet used and abused by children and pets, I received a call from a vacuum rep promoting filter queen

Normally I say no to such calls but, as I was in the market for a vacuum, I scheduled an appointment.

Why I chose Filter Queen

The Filter Queen is different from most vacuums in that its USP (unique selling proposition) is filter not suction. The Filter Queen works as a filter and sucks up dirt and grime without spreading it to other areas. The unique filter system also ensures that the dirt captured remains within the container.

Surfaces that appear clean once vacuumed with a traditional vacuum, that work on suction, such as stair carpets and chairs harbour hidden fur and dirt that is below the surface. The Filter Queen appears to be able to deep clean these areas.

Recently our Filter Queen became clogged up with a plastic cat toy - which I didn't realize - and whilst waiting for a friend to come over and figure out what was wrong I borrowed my neighbours vacuum. Based on Dyson technology I spent forever cleaning floors and surfaces that the Filter Queen manages to cover and clean in way less time.

I can also use the attachments for cleaning blinds, soft furnishings and hard to reach places. The weight is manageable and, I find, is more easily transportable up and down stairs than an upright with attachments.


Comparing vacuum efficiency with price is subjective to your personal circumstances. I had not intended to spend as much on a vacuum as I paid for the filter Queen, however, balancing the time savings and efficiency I think, overall, I have saved money.

      Good luck Teaches12345. I think you can also find reconditioned Filter Queens for a reasonable cost.

      I had a Dyson and found it lacked flexibility. I am looking for new vacuum and will check this out. Thanks for this advice.
