This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine. My mom ran a tight ship. If she didn’t, our home would fall into disarray. We had a large home (there were eight of us) and I cannot think of a time when it was dirty. Her dirty little secret? She loved to clean! And you know what? It is my secret too! When I have a clean house, I feel calm. If I have a big project coming up, I must have the house clean or I cannot focus on my work!
I Love To Vacuum. Crazy, Right!
I do not have the number of people or square footage to look after that mom did. This makes keeping the house tidy easier. One of my favorite household chores is to vacuum. I know, weird, right? Seeing my carpet have cat hair one moment and seeing it is clean the next is a bt magical! Crazy, right? I believe having the right vacuum is key. Here are my tips on how to choose the right vacuum for your home:
Choosing The Right Vacuum
- Upright: They have a brush that beats the dirt out of the carpet and then the machine sucks it up. If you vacuum often, like I do, a smaller, stick model may suit you. This is especially handy if you are taking it up and down stairs. If you vacuum less often, a larger vacuum may be best. You can choose from a bagless (no dirty hands) or a model which you need to buy special bags for (added expense). The downside of an upright is they don’t get into corners, so you will need your attachments.
- Canister: This is a versatile style of vacuum cleaners. It can go from carpet to hard floors. They are lightweight and easy to maneuver. Unlike an upright, they can get under furniture and into tight spaces. A downside is they may not have the suction power that many uprights have. A canister vacuum of less quality will cost more than an upright of better quality.
- Handheld: These are handy for a quick clean up. You would not want to use this on an entire floor. A handheld model will not have the suction power an upright or canister will have. These are inexpensive and their performance is indicative of that.
A Powerful Vacuum For Carpets
So what if you could get the best of these in one vacuum? That is what the Shark® Rocket® Complete vacuum with DuoClean™ offers. You get the incredible power of an upright with the versatility of a canister. On carpet, the soft brush roll it picks up large debris and deep cleans. The bristle brush picks up finer, embedded dirt.
A Powerful Vacuum For Hard Floors
On hard surfaces, the Shark Rocket Complete vacuum with DuoClean rocks! My old vacuum blew the dirt around on my hard floors. It felt like a half hearted effort to suck up the dirt. The Shark Rocket gets large and small debris as well as stick on dust. It gets into crevices and cleans edges like a boss!
A Powerful Handheld Vacuum
And the best part? It converts to a handheld! Be still my heart! This little dynamo is not your Mom’s handheld vac! This is powerful! You can use it for your mattress, blinds, upholstery, drapes, vents and your car. My husband loves it! Our car has never looked better! And you get this for an average retail of $225! Now that is amazing! Here is a video to demonstrate the power of the Shark Rocket Complete vacuum,
