I love to vacuum and always have! It was my choice chore growing up and I am a bit of a geek about vacuums. There is nothing worse than vacuuming with a bad one that just doesn't cut it and you're still left with a mess.
About 4 years ago a client of mine got a Dyson vacuum and I instantly fell in LOVE! I borrowed it every chance I could until I finally got my own when Andy & I got married. It's by far the best tool I've ever owned. So when, Dyson came out with a hand-held vacuum, I had to have it too. I love it just as much and it really works great.
Features I love!
- No bag
- Easy to clean
- Easy to clear out clogs
- Great customer service & phone support
- Love the way it looks
- Doubles as an air filter (just leave it running while you dust, clean the bathroom, etc.)
- No replacing the filter, you just wash it every 6 months
Tip: look for sales on these things - they aren't cheap or an impulse buy but are so worth the investment. For instance, Target offered the Dyson DC 17 Animal (my fav up-right model) for $200 off the retail price on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving). What a steal! Since that deal is not currently available, I always tell people to buy them at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Those 20% off coupons you get in the mail work on Dyson products.
