There are a lot of upright vacuum cleaners available today, but there is only one brand that uses sonic technology to loosen
deep down dirt and then applies powerful suction to remove and retain it - Soniclean. With their patented sonic bar, the Soniclean VT Plus
upright deep cleans with powerful sonic vibrations that loosen dirt and debris. Similar to the technology found in toothbrushes, the VT
Plus vacuum offers a unique way to clean throughout your home.

struggle for you to use. No matter what type of carpet you have, the VT Plus is a perfect fit for you cleaning job! Exclusive to
AchooAllergy.com, you get a free Soniclean handheld vacuum with each purchase of a VT Plus. The handheld vacuum broadens your
cleaning range and provides a compact, portable way to dust, and vacuum those hard to reach places in your home.

I'd read the reviews pros & cons. It's very easy to push for me. Picks up cat hair beautifully picks up dust & dirt better than any other vac. 3 in the last two years. It feels like it's self propelled which makes it so easy for me. The hand held vac works great easy to use and carry on the stairs and motor home. I don't have alot of strength any more. Are there small bags for the hand held vac? [Editor's Note: Yes, there are small, replacement vacuum bags available for the handheld.]

An excellent upright vacuum that has terrific suction power on all my large oriental rugs - and yet works fairly well on the bare marble floors for a quick pick up. Great bags and filtration - no pet smell at all. This is great for someone who wants clean but needs ease of use. The long cord is such a pleasure.
Love this vacuum

This sweeper was a very good deal with the value pays. I had been wanting a new sweeper and when I saw this on AchooAllergy.com I knew I just had to have it! It did not disappoint! I tested it out by running my old sweeper first and then ran my new one. You should have heard all of the sand and grit that my new sweeper swept up! I had no idea. You can see the things on the carpet vibrating and coming towards the sweeper before it ever gets to them. I love, love, love it!
Customer Q & A
Q1: The bags and filters are they readily available? Where can they be purchased? What is the cost?
A: Right now, there are a variety of online retailers offering these, from independent dealers like us to a handful of larger chain/big box stores. The bags retail for $24.99, and that's for a box of 8 filterbags. This model uses only the HEPA filterbag, no filter required.
Q2: I have oak wood floors, tile floors, and very thick carpet. In fact I had to buy a new vacuum when I got the new Karistan carpet, which is very thick. Does the vacuum have a lever to raise or lower the cleaning mechanism to accomadate deeper carpets. Also is it self driven as I have trouble vacuuming the thick carpets..........
A: It's IS powerful enough that it does nearly pull you along as you vacuum. So like a Miele upright it's almost "assisted" cleaning, feels nearly self-propelled. In terms of height adjustment though, it lacks this feature. The Miele, Dyson, and SEBO X-series upright have self adjusting heads both based on spring-based mechanisms built into their heads/bases. Soniclean has NO adjust for height. Some of the SEBO uprights Felix Premium models have a manual height adjustment dial, but only the models with powerhead electrically powered, which is what you'd be looking for anyways air driven heads are not very good on carpet. Additionally, any Miele canister with SEB 236 or SEB 228 powerheads also has height adjustment, and most of the Miele canisters that come with either of these two carpet tools ALSO come with a smooth floor tool like the UniQ, Marin, Kona, and Cat & Dog models.
Q3: Are you an authorized dealer? The warranty is only valid for machines purchases at an authorized Soniclean dealer or agent.
A: Yes! We have been an Authorized Soniclean Dealer very early Spring of 2013.

Soniclean VT Plus Vacuum Cleaner
As the introductory Soniclean upright model, the VT Plus offers straightforward carpet cleaning in one economical
vacuum cleaner. Similar to the Galaxy upright, the VT Plus has most of the same features but a couple additional
benefits. With both the VT Plus and the included Soniclean Handheld, I set about giving our office a thorough cleaning. Here
are the results.
What I like about the Soniclean VT Plus
Across carpeted surfaces, the VT Plus performed well, picking up dirt, pet hair, and soil with ease. With the Sonic bar engaged, you can
literally see dirt and soil bouncing loose on the carpet before the powerful suction lifts then filters it through the H13 HEPA
filterbag. Though less wattage than many other uprights, the design of the motor means the suction of this vacuum is as good as or
better than most others we've tested. This helps to make this model ideal for even thick carpet.
The Soniclean VT Plus is ultra-light upright. Weighing in at just 10.5 lbs., this upright is light enough to carry from room to
room or from floor to floor inside a multi-story home. The lightweight also makes it easy to use. At one point I had this model locked
in the upright position. With sonic bar engaged and the vacuum running, you could see it actually start to creep forward. The design of
the motor has given this upright more than enough power and that combined with the lightweight makes it extremely easy to use and maneuver.
Another feature I also tested on this vacuum was the cut-off switch. It never fails. At some point you are going to vacuum up something that
could clog or damage the vacuum. If the vacuum continues to run, you can burn up the motor or other internal components and possibly completely
ruin your vacuum. I sucked up a rug with Soniclean and in a matter of seconds the vacuum shut down and red indicator light lit up. I unclogged
the vacuum then turned it back on and resumed vacuuming.
Cost is the last big upside to this vacuum. The cleaning ability on carpet as well as the free handheld vacuum, make the VT Plus a value at
its price point. It lacks premium features found on other models, but the price is much more economical.
What I do not like about the Soniclean VT Plus
The vacuum is a little loud. While using this, don't expect to be able to hear someone at the door. In terms of filtration, though it has a HEPA filterbag,
I am a proponent of separate components - filterbag and separate HEPA filter. While the HEPA filterbag costs less in the long run, you give up a little in
on the filtration side. Lastly, just be sure your environment is one that matches the strong point of this vacuum. Lots of carpet, great! Small areas of
or very little smooth flooring, perfect! You only have rugs over a lot of smooth flooring? You might want to consider one of the Soniclean canisters
In the right space, this vacuum, with handheld accessory vacuum, can be the perfect solution to your floor cleaning needs. The Handheld adds value while
broadening the cleaning range within your home. Economical, lightweight and powerful, the Soniclean VT Plus is well worth considering.
