What is the best vacuum to use on hardwood floors?

I can't use my carpet sweeper on the hardwood.

I wouldn't use any type of vacuum. Even if there are some vacuums designed to use on hardwood floors you still might get scratches from the wheels. Instead, use a dust mop. A dust mop will prevent any type of scratches on your hardwood floors. Also, the clothe-like mop will pick-up more dust and lint and leave a great shine.

Although some vacuums offer a setting for bare floors, you may not be happy with the job it does. Try using a high-power cannister vacuum, such as a Shop Vac. It works well for those hard to reach corners and edges around baseboards that a regular carpet vacuum cannot reach.

The best type of vacuum cleaners to use on hardwood floors are the HEPA types. One highly recommended make and model of cleaner s the Eureka Sanitaire Commercial SC5845 Bagless. With its capacity to function as a commercial type of appliance, it contains a large dirt collector cup that can stretch up to ten feet.
