We are moving to a split level house in August and I would like to buy a new vacuum for the new house. The house will have natural wood floors and carpeting, I have a dog so we will have pet hair. I do not want a canister vacuum because there are stairs and I have trouble using the canister on steps. Would appreciate if anyone can suggest good upright, lightweight vacuums, either electric or battery operated. Don't need steamers or ones that wash as I already have a swifter.
