Vacuum Cleaner Suggestions / Forum Search Help
Hi, I'm new and have searched forum for posts on vacuum cleaners and get pages of tresults, most old. Perhaps I need assistance on how to find current posts.
My question is on determining best vacuum, what members here are using and like and why, as well as what to avoid and why.
I like the Orecks bc they are light weight and appear to clean well. Had an xl, loved it and perhaps I'll go back to that. Then I upgraded to an Oreck Extended Life, not sure that its any better than original. Actually, preferred original. Apparently, there are new Orecks or they've changed the look, don't know anything about them yet.
Then we got sucked into buying a Kirby which I hate bc its too heavy and I don't know how to change out stuff and simply don't use it. Bought it primarily bc I liked the idea having one vacuum to do everything thing - replace canister vac and carpet cleaner . I should probably get rid of it, paid a lot for it, not sure if I should try to sell it, give it to charity or what. I'm challenged in the decision making area lol!
Also, I used to have a Eureka bagless canister vac. Loved the suction and ease of use, but being bagless, it was messy. We do have a compact Oreck canister, works good.
We have mostly carpet and a short haired dog, but I don't notice much dog hair compared to when we had poms, cute llttle fur balls!
Sometimes I like to look at Amazon to see what ratings are, though I know that some hire ppl to post positive reviews, so hard to know reliability. And look at best selling, though its not clear to me what time frame that Amazon is using when saying best selling - last hour, day, week, month, ever....
Thanks for any help on searching current posts and/or on vacuums.
