They come in many colors and designs, they have different features, and some are really expensive.
I’m talking about vacuum cleaners. Walk down the vacuum cleaner aisle at Walmart, Target or Kohl’s and you will see what I’m talking about. I am going to talk about 3 different vacuum cleaners in different price ranges and discuss the pro’s and con’s of each.
The vacuum I currently have on the van is a Bissel Powerforce. This Vacuum can be found at Walmart for around $42. This model works great and digs alot of dirt out of the carpet. For the price, it cannot be beat. I like that if something breaks on it, I can replace it and not have to worry about a big expense. For the average homeowner, this is the choice for them. The biggest problem is that the filters get clogged up really quick. For someone like me, this is a hassle. At the end of a busy day, I have to take the vacuum apart and blow everything out with an air compressor. This is the last thing I want to do when I’m done working. The good thing is that the filters are getting filled up because it is removing so much dust and dirt out of the carpet. If you can put up with the maintenance, then this vacuum is a good choice.
The next vacuum is the Shark Navigator. This vacuum is quickly becoming very popular. It does what it is supposed to do, and that is to clean the floor. It can be purchased for about $180. It has some good features like a detachable canister and swivel steering. Good vacuum at a fair price. It is heavier than the Bissel and can scratch easy. I am afraid to drop one, because it might break. Other complaints I’ve heard are that it has a small dirt cup and narrow cleaning path.
The last vacuum is my personal favorite: The Dyson. You can get these vacuums with just about any feature you can think of. I had one on the van for the last 5 years and it took a beating every day. I finally wore it out and I need to buy another one SOON! I am hard pressed to find anything wrong with it except for the price. You can easily drop over $400 on one. They are built like tanks, have great features, are very user friendly, and they remove more soil than you can imagine. The dirt cup is large enough to vacuum a couple of homes without having to empty it. It requires very little maintenance. This is the vacuum of choice for me and it will last for years.
