when I heard about the issue in more detail now, I thought: why don't we 
build a much better
vacuum cleaner ourselves? Actually I would want a cleaner with 
wet-capability myself.
There is a good design, that employs liquid cleaning / gas washing of 
the air called "Orcy",
that was presented to me.

I envision a design, that combines the idea of the Dyson, a cyclone, for 
the coarse mud
with the idea of the Orcy, a gas washer, for excellent fine filtering, 
if it's done right.
For prototyping of the air-nozzels 3D-printing will work nicely and a 
sketch is in my head...

Other requirements:
*) very quiet
*) robust & repairable
*) relatively cheap

By designing a good centrifugal fan and strapping standard vacuum 
cleaner tubes/hoses
and floor-nozzles to a newly engineered body, this should be achievable.
