I wanna talk about vacuums, so I made this thread to talk about all household type things.
I have a vacuum right now. It’s the canister vacuum we bought when we moved to Beacon way back in the day. It works. It vacuums. I still have all the attachments except for one. That one would be the pet hair vacuum thing that was destroyed by Rym hair.
The problem with the vacuum is that it is too big for my tiny apartment. It takes up a lot of space in my closet, that I would really like to reclaim. Also, it is mostly designed to clean carpet. I don’t have any carpet. It’s not so great at cleaning hard wood floors, which I do have. Lastly, this vacuum requires bags. I am on my last bag. I’m sure I can get more bags on Amazon, but it’s still annoying.
I am thinking of trying to sell this thing and buying a replacement. But if I replace a thing that works, I have to be getting a major upgrade. I need something that is much smaller, cordless, requires no bags, and good at cleaning my hard floors.
I would get a robot, but I do not think it would do well in my tiny apartment with so many obstacles in it. The area it could actually successfully clean is quite small.
I also looked at the very popular Dyson options. They are definitely very overpriced. They do sell older cheaper ones that are less powerful, but only the top of the line v8 model comes with the hardwood floor attachment. Of course. This thing is like $500+ Holy shit.
The thing is, when I looked around, I couldn’t really find anything else. Maybe they get away with charging such ludicrous prices because they have no competition?
Should I just get some bags and keep the crappy vacuum, or is there some other option?
