I have been replacing all of my wall to wall with laminate room by room and
now only the bedrooms have carpet. Somehow, I have amassed a ton of
cleaning equipment. I have the dry swiffer, wet swiffer, a little mini vac
from Bissel that use dry swiffers, along with my serious heavy duty vac for
carpets and a mop and broom. I had an older Orek that was great because it
did a wonderful job on hard surfaces and I could also run it over the large
scatter rugs I have here and there, but I gave it away. :-(
I need to reduce this clutter of cleaning stuff! I have animals and I feel
like usinga broom just sets teh hair air-borne. My big vac, although it was
teh 2nd best rated by consumer reports for carpets, just isn't that good on
hard surfaces, seems to blow the stuff around. The little bissel thing is
great, but not that powerful so it is slow.
What do you guys recommend? right now I am thinking of a stick vac that
could do the floors and scatter rugs and also the Floor mate but then I will
need to build a new utilty room to hold the never ending collection.
