There are two schools of thought about buying a vacuum cleaner. Buy a cheap one and replace it every couple of years or invest in a vacuum cleaner that will last for many years to come. At Meissner, we don’t think the first idea makes much sense. The price difference between a low- and high-quality machine isn’t great enough and repeatedly buying lower quality machines quickly becomes more expensive than even a top-of-the-line vacuum cleaner. And the difference in performance is significant—a high-quality vacuum cleaner can add years to the life of your carpets and flooring.
