Good vacuum for carpet : Carpet to hardwood stairs : Mesa carpet cleaners.
Day 254: My new roommate, the Dyson.
First impressions out of the box: Never have I been this excited about cleaning. I am hoping this thing is a miracle worker. And so far, it looks like one. It has attachments the likes of which I've never even SEEN. The vacuum is almost too shiny and streamlined. It takes me several minutes to find the attachments' housings, and I still haven't determined whether there is an actual place on this vacuum that connotes "bare floors" vs. "carpets." Right now, I'm assuming that "bare floors" is when the brush bar isn't spinning, and "carpets" is when it is. I'm impressed with the bag of carpet powder and canister of spot cleaner provided. For what this thing cost, they'd better include some freebies. First impression upon vacuuming: Considerable disappointment!! NOW GRANTED, I put it to a tough first test. My bedroom carpet, which hadn't been vacuumed in forever and had an undisclosed amount of embedded and accumulated hair of me and the two cats, both of whom shed fur like a horny Spring Breaker sheds a bikini top. I have watched Sabu literally pull clumps of hair out with his teeth. Sometimes he eats it. Anyway, the vacuum started marvelously. But, no kidding, only about six feet into the room I had to bail out because the brushbar started making this horrendous thwapping noise. If there had been another person in the room with me, I could not have heard their voice over the racket. I took the bottom guard off, checked and cleaned the brushbar (which I really should not have had to do, THIS THING IS ONLY MINUTES OLD) and restarted. The super-loud noise came and went, and eventually went. So far I am underwhelmed. And worse, the vacuum lost suction. The Dyson, which says right on the box that it never loses suction, lost suction. The suction didn't disappear but I could tell even within 15 minutes that it was not picking up stuff at the same rate as before. And this is AFTER cleaning the brushbar and emptying the canister twice and doing all kinds of maintenance things. Now, I know I put it to a hard test. The bedroom carpet was beyond nasty. I'm actually GLAD the vacuum sucked up as much as it did, but the fact that I could tell it was losing suction on the carpet is not sitting well with me at all. I turned off the brushbar and vacuumed the hardwoods in the house too, and the Dyson moved much smoother on the floors. I'm hoping that the hissyfit thrown in the bedroom was a one-time thing caused by the inordinate amount of cat hair this first time around. Yes, let's hope that. Otherwise this roommate is getting kicked right the hell out.The best contraption ever
I wish that it was my idea, but it's not. Dave Barry wrote about a guy that connected two pieces of wood together, in the shape of a T. He would place the wide end on a carpet and drag the thing around by the other end, in order to leave the kind of tracks that a vacuum cleaner makes. This is much cheaper, more energy efficient, and quicker than vacuuming, so it's much better, too. BTW, the shots on a shag carpet didn't work, so I substituted a little throw rug.
