Dream cleaning – SEBO offers some top vacuuming tips

seboTake care of your vacuum so that it lasts longer. Check filters and bags regularly – at least once every six weeks – and keep the brush roller free from hair.

Always ensure the lead is fully extended before turning the vacuum on, never pull a vacuum by its lead and always unplug before winding the cable.

Vacuuming slowly is twice as effective as whizzing round!  By taking it easy, you will do a much better job in less time.

Don’t use liquid shampoos on your carpets. The agent collects in the pile and builds up to attract more dirt and grime. Instead, use carpet cleaning powder which will absorb stains.

Make sure you use the right attachment for the job, especially on delicate flooring such as wool loop carpet.

It’s not just the floor that can be cleaned with a vacuum – use it to free curtains, lampshades, throws and sofas from dust.

SEBO vacuum cleaners are easy-to-use, provide an outstanding performance and are ideal for all floor types.

SEBO – the ultimate in professional vacuum cleaners

Dart smallSEBO, stand R1400, Facilities Show, 17-19 June 2014, ExCeL, London.

At Facilities Show, SEBO will be showcasing a collection of professional vacuum cleaners which have been designed for commercial environments.  The range which will be on display includes the SEBO DART, BS 36 and BS 46 Comfort, Professional D8 cylinder and UHS polisher.

The SEBO DART upright vacuum cleaner is easy to use and maintain, offers brilliant performance and is ideal for cleaning around furniture and other obstacles. With exceptional suction and powerful brush action, it offers a thorough, professional quality one pass pick-up.

The DART features S-Class filtration, an on-board hose, a crevice nozzle, 4-level height adjustment and auto shut-off.  Available in two brush widths – 31cm and 37cm – the DART weighs in at just 6.7kg and 6.9kg respectively.  The machine’s “Flex” neck not only gives superb manoeuvrability, its flat-to-floor design enables the DART to clean under hard-to-reach places.  What is more, when detached from the power head, the DART body is transformed into a lightweight, powerful suction machine.

SEBO’s UHS polisher is an essential add-on to the Dart vacuum cleaner; this can restore and keep hard floors looking super sleek.  The polisher is embedded with micro-diamonds in the pads.  This polishes out imperfections in the floor creating a smooth gloss finish.

Another option is the SEBO BS 36 and BS 46 Comfort upright vacuum cleaners. The flat-to-the-floor design and telescopic tube system add to the overall cleaning flexibility while the electronic guidance system advises the correct brush height, will warn when the brush strip is worn out and will switch off the brush motor in the case of an obstruction to the brush; the motor also turns off when the machines are upright.

Finally, the Professional D8 cylinder machine has been superbly engineered and offers exceptional performance combined with an ergonomic design, large capacity and quiet, economic operation.  The SEBO kombi multi-floor cleaning head has a double-jointed neck for easy movement while the AirBelt bumper protects walls and furniture from marking and damage.

Which? recognises SEBO as the best

PR 36027 Felix Pet low-resThe Which? reliability survey has recognised SEBO as the best overall brand for upright vacuum cleaners.  The Which? experts explained that the “machines will leave your floors spotlessly clean.  Not only are they outstanding at removing dust from carpets and hard floors, they also excel at banishing pet hair.”

The 37 year old German company is the world’s leading manufacturer of professional upright vacuum cleaners so it’s no surprise that SEBO scored a reliability score of 92% for the Felix and X Series upright vacuum cleaners.

The Felix boasts a flexible flat-to-floor cleaning head which makes it easy to clean under and around furniture.  Each model boasts an adjustable telescopic handle and integrated hose and you can select variable power settings; choose from 300 watts which is great for vacuuming delicate items with the hose, to 1300 watts for true force. The machines feature brush-height control too; you can choose between gentle to deep brushing as desired.

With unique on-board computer technology and a user-friendly design, every X series model provides the ultimate in effective and intelligent floor cleaning.  This computer-control system measures brush action on the floor and, in conjunction with a servo motor, moves the brush to the appropriate height for optimum cleaning.

Both ranges feature the super-efficient S-Class filtration system which meets the demanding requirements of asthma and allergy sufferers with ease, as the fine dust particles are firmly retained inside the machines and not released into the air.  The vacuum cleaners also boast the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval.

SEBO – smart vacuum cleaners, built to stand the test of time

SEBO_AUTOMATIC_X2 - low resEver considered how you’d get your home looking its best without your trusted vacuum cleaner to hand? Luckily the days of hanging rugs over a line to beat out the dirt are long gone and keeping the floors in your home looking fabulous is easier than ever before with the right vacuum cleaner.

Since the first motorised design was created by British engineer, Hubert Cecil Booth in 1901, vacuum cleaner technology has come a long way. Booth’s first petrol-powered, horse-drawn cleaner used air drawn by a piston pump through a cloth filter with impressive pioneering results and, once he gained the Royal seal of approval, his designs were even used to clean the carpets of Westminster Abbey prior to Edward VII‘s coronation in 1901. The vacuum cleaner has never looked back as technology has developed tenfold over the last 100 years with handheld, cylinder and upright designs taking centre stage for their ergonomic, intuitive and time saving practicalities.

SEBO, the expert in floorcare, has played an important part in this evolution of vacuum cleaner technology and today its revolutionary designs are some of the world’s best-selling machines. Founded in 1977 in Germany, SEBO is credited as producing the first commercial upright vacuum cleaner, for example, and today is the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial upright designs in over 20 countries.

Many features that are now second nature in many vacuum designs seen across the market were first introduced by SEBO, including the upright integrated hose and the electrostatic micro filters that provide efficient and fuss-free cleaning. With these reassuring facts to mind, it’s good to know that when you buy a SEBO you are buying a quality vacuum cleaner you can trust.

Justin Binks, Director of SEBO UK was quoted in yesterday’s Sunday Times on his views of the new EU vacuum cleaner ruling.  Click here to read the story in full – http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/eu/10423431/EU-energy-saving-rules-cut-power-of-vacuum-cleaners.html
