Bissell® Featherweight Vacuum Cleaner 5 "Ideal for hard surfaces" Fiona 22 January 2013 I bought this vacuum cleaner for my downstairs dining room and conservatory which is laminate and tile flooring. I wanted it to pick up dog hair etc, and it does the job very well. Other reviews said the cleaner was noisy but I have not found it any noisier than any other cleaner. I would not use if for very large areas as I do not think the engine would manage, but for relatively small areas it is excellent. Only problem I have found is taking the cleaner apart to empty the dust, it is a bit fiddly and I keep expecting the clip to break. Service from Lakeland was excellent as well.
