Canisters work way better on bare floors than uprights, because they are able to get under and around everything with ease. The Miele S4 Sirius has a great floor brush which is made for wood floors and it does a great job cleaning up. The parquet floorbrush is specially designed for hard surfaces as it features... More

Electrolux vitesse £60-£70, very lightweight,sucks the dust on laminate floor instead of blowing it,unlike the overpriced, heavy cumbersome Dyson.

Any canister type vacuum, or even a shop vac. You don't want to use anything with a beater bar,it will scratch your floor...:)

Don't know if its the 'best' but I recently brought the "Morphy Richards-orb" from NEXT and its doing a good job so far. You do know how Manufacturers try to suck (pardon the pun) us up into the 'new best thing'. Most will get the job done. Good luck with the housekeeping

Orex only weighs 7 lbs light easy to use and goes from floor to floor pricey but will last a lifetime

Vax........... Brush attachment protects your floor. I wouldn't buy anything else. A Vax is so versatile.

Forget the vacuum cleaner - it will eventually scratch your floor to bits. Secure a dampened wascloth to your broom instead (by means of a hair bobble or rubber band) sweep over the floor and collect all the dust and hair without blowing it everywhere. I found this to be a much easier method and more thorough too. Try... More

Use a broom.It wont scratch the surface,way cheaper than a vacuum,save on your power bill and look after the environment at the same time.Win Win situation.Or if you really want a vacuum get a Dyson,they are a bit exxx$$ but there worth it.

I feel that any vacuum cleaner is okay, as long as you use the floor brush for bare floor cleaning. The floor brush would not scratch the flooring. Happy cleaning.

I agree on the Dyson, as it changes it's brush head automatically

I would recommend a good canister with a good bare floor tool. Go to a few local vacuum shops (avoid all major retailers and the junk they usually sell) and tell them what your needs are, and they will be able to show you something good. I personally use a Miele canister on my bare floors and it worsk excellently... More
