  1. Bag the best with SEBO

    A recent survey by SEBO shows that 83% of us change our vacuum bags monthly; while 4% change them weekly.* Make sure you are getting the best from your SEBO vacuum cleaner though by using SEBO’s own bags; don’t go for copycat imitations. SEBO bags fit perfectly with no hassle or mess. They are specially designed to maximise the performance, longevity and reliability of your machine; and your guarantee is not valid if you use others. SEBO bags use the latest technology, multi-layer, micro-fibre construction which harnesses electro-static attraction to combine high filtration and fade-free performance. The high filtration design enables longer life for filters, preventing fine dust and other contaminants from entering the machine and causing unseen damage to bearings and other components. An integrated sealing lid makes SEBO bags more hygienic to handle and, most importantly, they are the correct size for the machine. And on the same subject, don’t be tempted by bagless machines; the d

  2. Vacuum cleaners with a clean conscience

    There's more to being environmentally aware than just looking at energy consumption of products. A true friend of the environment will ensure a new vacuum cleaner is responsibly manufactured too. This is the message for retailers from SEBO, a pioneer in this responsible manufacturing. The consumer knows to look for efficiency when it comes to buying new appliances for the home but SEBO has discovered that few look at the amount of energy consumed in their production and distribution. Sometimes this can far outweigh the energy used during the entire lifespan of a product. According to research by the Commission on Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE), WWF, and Halifax, 87% of consumers would like their home to be more environmentally friendly. To achieve this, we, the manufacturers, need to consider the environmental impact of the products we buy right from their very inception, not just once they enter our homes. Manufactured in Germany, using locally-sourced materials

  3. Vacuum cleaner guidance offers added value for flooring retailers

    As any good retailer will know, looking after the long term interests of customers and the products they have bought can reap huge ongoing benefits, not only by reducing the number of call-backs and complaints but by building customer satisfaction and gaining repeat sales. In the case of carpets and other flooring, providing advice on care is an important part of the sales process and should include guidance on which vacuum cleaner is best suited to the floor covering that has been purchased. Matching a floor with the right vacuum cleaner is not something to leave to chance. The vast range of flooring types available means that it is vital that the customer is given sufficient information to choose the most appropriate maintenance regime and vacuum cleaner. A carefully selected, good quality, high performance machine of the right type will, without doubt, help ensure a floor not only looks good but lasts. An example of the kind of problem that can occur if the wrong machine is used

  4. Polishing up for a shinier floor

    There are many vacuum cleaners that can perform maintenance and cleaning. Those with a speed of up to 200 rpm perform a scrubbing task, and those between 200 and 400 rpm both scrub and polish. These models are full head-weight machines, meaning that the weight lies directly on the cleaning pad. The main disadvantage of these options, however, is the need for operative training. The ultra high-speed (UHS) models operate from 500 rpm upwards and these differ in design, being wheels-down in operation with the weight on the wheels. Ranging in size from 11 to 21 inches, these machines require no operative training. The colour of the cleaning pad is the key to the performance levels – the darker the pad, the more aggressive the cleaning power. The question of which polish to use is subjective and every manufacturer of cleaning chemicals has its own version of floor maintenance products, or floor maintainers. These range in price and quality and can be used in a variety of different ways t
