The Sebo Felix 4 Kombi is ideal for households with hard surface flooring and carpets that are too delicate to clean with machines equipped with roller brushes. This bagged vacuum cleaner has excellent filtration and maneuverability and a five-year motor warranty, so you can expect it to last.
The Felix 4 Kombi uses straight suction to clean floors, which means it pulls dirt and pet hair straight up through the center of the machine and deposits it directly into the bag. Even though it has no spinning brush roller to agitate dirt, its powerful suction has the ability to remove embedded pet hair and debris.
This upright vacuum cleaner has a sealed system. That means each compartment is lined with rubber so that dust cannot escape where parts connect. When dirt enters the machine, it moves from the top to the bottom of the bag. This allows air to exit through the sides, ensuring a strong and steady airflow.
Sebo machines also have pre-motor filters. Pre-motor filters clean the suctioned air before it passes through the motor. This prevents dirty air from reaching the vacuum's internal parts, thereby extending its life. This machine's ability to filter air approaches hospital-grade filtration, making it perfect if you have pets or suffer from allergies.
The vacuum has a 6-inch profile, which means the handle can lie almost flat to the floor. You can easily maneuver the cleaner under your bed and into other tight spaces. This means you can vacuum under the coffee table without having to move it or use an extension hose.
The machine also features a flexible neck handle. This makes it responsive and easy to steer around corners. Its rubber wheels and bumpers prevent scuffing if you hit a wall. Carrying the machine up and down stairs is easy, as it only weighs 15 pounds. It comes with a 35-foot power cord, so you do not have to find an outlet in every room.
With the Sebo Felix 4, you only get a couple of accessories – an upholstery cleaner and a crevice tool. There is no auto shut-off mechanism or height adjustment controls. Because this vacuum cleaner does not come with a spinning brush roller, it does not agitate embedded dirt particles. If you have wall-to-wall carpet, this is not the vacuum for you.
More on Vacuums
Sebo's five-year warranty coverage includes both the motor and non-wear parts and labor. Compared to other vacuum cleaners, this is a standout feature because many warranties only cover the motor. Because this machine is built with commercial-grade components, it lasts longer than many vacuum cleaners you will find on the market.
The Sebo Felix 4 Kombi is not the best upright vacuum for cleaning wall-to-wall carpeting. If you want efficient air filtration and you have hardwood floors and delicate rugs, this machine will work well in your home. The commercial-grade materials and sealed system make it durable and effective, especially if you have allergies or pets.
