The Panasonic platinum with QuietForce technology is distinguished by its ability to muffle the noise of the motor. By pushing exhaust air through a long path, the Platinum reduces noise level significantly while you vacuum. You can enjoy a conversation or keep a sleeping baby asleep as you clean your home with this powerful vacuum.
This model has a 14-inch cleaning head, which is one of the longest available on a full-size upright vacuum cleaner. A bigger cleaning head reduces the number of passes you need to clean your whole carpet. This deep-cleaning vacuum goes easily from carpet to rug to hardwood floor. The self-adjusting cleaning height maintains maximum contact between the carpet or bare floor and vacuum cleaning head, which results in maximum suction of dirt and debris. You can turn off the agitator for safe cleaning on your tile, wood or linoleum flooring. The soft wheels on this Panasonic deep cleaning vacuum won't scratch a delicate wood floor.
This vacuum also comes with an array of tools located conveniently on-board, for easy connecting and cleaning. The stretch hose and telescoping wand reach up to 12 feet, so you can dust the ceiling fan or crown molding with ease. The floor brush tool is handy for vacuuming stairs. You will find that the upholstery tool and crevice tool will work well for vacuuming your couch, especially if pet hair is an issue.
This deep vacuum cleaner uses bags to collect dirt, dust and other debris. It also has two filters, a HEPA and a secondary non-HEPA, that work with the bag to remove dirt, dust, allergens and irritants from the outgoing air while vacuuming. The fan and motor are protected from the particles by the vacuum's special design, which channels dirt and dust directly into the vacuum bag. This feature extends the life of your vacuum cleaner and keeps suction powerful as you clean.
