Vacuums

Postby jeanerz13 » Thu Nov 08, 2012 12:35 am

I was considering getting another vacuum to make cleaning the stairs easier. What's the best kind of vacuum for this? I was thinking either one of the canister vacuums with the long stick handles or just a handheld vacuum. I really don't want to spend a lot of money on it since I wouldn't be using it often. I'm just tired of trying to lug my standard vacuum up each stair (when the base doesn't really even fit on a step).

Edit: Just saw the Eureka 3-in-one stick vac in the walmart ad for 8.84. Anyone have anything to say about these?

I bought one of those two years ago... piece of junk. Put the $8.84 toward something better for sure.

Would another (not Eureka) stick vacuum be good or is the style in general pretty useless?

All the stick vacuums I have had usually fall apart. When it comes to stairs I just use my attachment on my dyson. Maybe a nice hand held?

Hmm that's sad. I gave one to my cousin when she got her 1st apt and its still holding up. I personally love my dyson and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I have the original yellow one, the attachments are excellent for stairs and little crevices. Things in hiding have never stood a chance.

Stick vacuums are usually not worth it, unless there's a particular reason why you need your vacuum to be so light and small.

It seems like a waste to buy another vacuum just for stairs. Can you just find a small, empty box the same rise height and tread width of your stairs and use it to make a portable, temporary platform double the width of your stairs for your existing vacuum to sit upon?

(Otherwise, I'd recommend a cheap upright.)

BEST VACUUM EVER. I'm Buying another one this year cause my ex took the one I had. That vacuum really sucks! Literally, Dyson vacuum for a fraction of the price.

I don't really want to get another upright. That's what I have now that isn't working for me. If anything I'd want to get an attachment for it but I wouldn't know where to begin looking.

For the stick vacuums, where does the dirt go? I mean, is there a canister to empty or do you buy bags or does it vary?

Thought I saw it. The price is lower 100 dollar range. It's pretty neat it's like a convertible.

yes, but it will make you other vacuum feel like those old push roller brooms. This is BAR NONE the best vacuum I have ever EVER used. No way to get stuff stuck because each section of the hose can be removed easily, sucks like there is NO TOMORROW, easily turns, comes apart and goes back together with ease....the cannister is not heavy so can lift it off and do curtains, stairs, fan blades....I will never own another brand after this one....
