I would recommend a Dyson V6 Total Clean (currently about £200 on dyson eBay outlet) which will do your hard floors with the new fluffy attachment and the carpet attachment

Or spend more and get the Dyson V8 Absolute.

Our house is the same as yours wooden floor/tiles downstairs and carpet upstairs. I bought a Hoover FD22G a few weeks ago for £99.99 from Tesco can't fault it, it's back to £129.99 now but still £99.99 at Studio http://www.studio.co.uk/shop/en/studio/hoover-22v-freedom-cordless-stick-vac?source=TJ9G&cssoc=047&cm_mmc=Studio_P-_-Display-_-Google_PLA-_-Electricals%7CSmall%20Domestic%20Appliances%7CHoover%2022V%20Freedom%20Cordless%20Vac%7C23976098

Just got the Dyson V6 animal. Never used cordless before so i can't compare to others on the market. But it does the job. Seems to pick up more from the carpets than any vacuum i've had. Works fine on the wooden floors, although it struggles with big bits (dog biscuit crumbs), but i don't have the proper wooden floor attachment.

Overall its fantastic, and i wouldn't go back to corded. Super light, fast to charge and very high quality build.

I picked up one of these the other day: http://www.argos.co.uk/product/6316750

Very lightweight and powerful considering its cordless.

Thanks for your response everyone.

Silly question, do these pickup everything from the carpets similar to corded ones as I have read reviews that they are not as powerful as corded ones.

Another thing, do we have to mount it to the wall by drilling into it or can we do something else?

I was a bit dubious about how a cordless would pick up after having an older Dyson handheld that was pretty rubbish but the Hoover I mentioned in my first post picks up really well and does work better than my old trusty Dyson upright. You don't have to mount to the wall, if you've got a spare corner it may work but mine just lives (with the monsters!) in the cupboard under the stairs and when I need to charge it I just plug it in.

The dustbin looks very small?

If you can afford it the gtech air ram is my cordless of choice. The new model is easier to empty too. http://www.gtech.co.uk

0.7 litres on the Hoover, bigger than the Dyson's I believe, we've only emptied it once in about 3 weeks, depends how much dirt you have I suppose :p

I agree with SusieM about the gtech. I've had one for about a year and it works very well and is light to carry about and easy to empty. It cleans right up to the edges, so stairs should be ok. I need to move it forward and back, then along the step. it's very easy to manoeuvre. The only downside is that it doesn't deal with long hair well, as it tangles round the rollers and is a fiddly annoyance to clear (You need a small screwdriver and some good swear words).There are films on youtube by owners showing you how it all works.

those with the gtech how do you get into tight spaces around things you can't move from what I understand it doesn't have like a crevice tool.

You are correct, there is no tool. I have a little black and decker cordless that I use in the car that has a hose and crevice tool. Gtech do a similar one called the multi.

Thanks all, with all pros and cons i am thinking of Dyson total clean.

​ah thanks for that my house has lots of nooks and crannies so gtech wouldn't be suitable for me then.

Agreed, the gtech is a nice to have gadget for a quick supplemental run round and is not a main vacuum for a real clean.
