  Excellent and worth it
Reviewed by: Karen from Central Mass

We needed a high quality hepa filter due to my husband's allergies, plus a new dog. We selected this over the Miele due to the comfort of handle, the swivel at the wrist and floor and ease to move around. My girls 10 and 9 liked how light it was and it was more comfortable than the Miele to operate. My husband noticed the difference immediately! Great purchase!
  Awesome Vacuum
Reviewed by: Sick of buying junk from Pompano Beach, FL

Bought this instead of a Miele because my friend had one. It's the best vacuum I've ever had. It's got the Miele quality at a lower price.The Miele would have cost me over $1000. Easy to vacuum because of the power nozzle glides nicely. Check the reviews, Sebo is the best rated vacuum in Germany, not a Miele.

Customer Q & A

Q1: How many HEPA filters are on the C3.1
A: Technically, out of the box, a new unit wouldn't have any true HEPA filters. It comes standard with an S Class filter. This is very similar to a HEPA filter. HEPA = 99.97% filtration of particles 0.3 microns or larger. S Class = 99.9% of the same size particles. There is an optional HEPA filter for that vac. If you already have the unit, the next time you purchase dust bags, you can pick up the SEBO C series HEPA Box. This box will have replacement dust bags, a replacement micro/exhaust filter, and a HEPA filter to fit where the S Class filter goes. Hope that helps!

SEBO Canister Vacuum Cleaner Reviews

SEBO C3.1 Canister Vacuum Cleaner

SEBO kicks off its line of canister vacuum cleaners with the C2.1 canister, but offers you a few significant upgrades with the C3.1 canister vacuum cleaner. This model has the same basic features as the C2.1, with the largest difference being that instead of being suited simply for smooth flooring the standard white SEBO 3.1 offers excellent performance on carpet. Overall, the cleaning features are similar with the SEBO C3.1 being the best-suited for carpeted areas.

What I like about the SEBO C3.1

While you do step up in price from the C2.1, the SEBO C3.1 makes up for it by offering dual capability of cleaning carpets and all types of smooth flooring. This unit comes equipped with a parquet tool to clean tile, linoleum, hardwoods and laminate. Each powerhead is electrically driven, and offer varying cleaning paths with the ET-H coming equipped with 2 edging brushes. The ET-1 and ET-2 offer manual brushroll control and height adjustment. Regardless of whether it is cleaning deep pile carpeting or extracting hair left by any furry critters you may have in the home, the C3.1's electrically driven powerhead provides excellent cleaning results.

As with all SEBO vacuum cleaners, the C3.1 canister offers hospital grade particle filtration that ensures the air leaving your vacuum is cleaner than that of non-HEPA canister vacuums. 3 stage filtration and a sealed system, with the option of including a HEPA filter, make this SEBO canister vacuum one of the best for allergy or asthma sufferers.

SEBO vacuums are durable units constructed to exacting standards. The brand has a long reputation of being one of the very best in the world, and SEBO vacuum cleaners have long been the choice of cleaning professionals the world over.

What I do not like about the SEBO C3.1

The dust bags for these units are not self-sealing. This is important for those who suffer from allergy or asthma. Keeping allergens effectively contained is important, so extra care must be taken when changing the bag.

The price can be somewhat prohibitive for some customers, but as we often say, you get what you pay for. And in this case, you get a quality made vacuum cleaner with a 5 year warranty and the knowledge that the SEBO brand is one of the largest suppliers of vacuum cleaners for both commercial and professional users.

Overall, the SEBO C3.1 Canister is a decided step up from the introductory C2.1 model. With more options, a powerhead, and slider power control the C3.1 is well suited for allergy and asthma sufferers in nearly all settings.
