now let me tell you, our floors are not simple. we've got different textures - wood flooring, carpeting, area rugs and tile. oh and we have 2 dogs. and yeah, one of them sheds a whole coat of fur in a day (or at least it seems this way).
for a good 5 years i used "the green machine" - my handy $50 fun looking, light weight vacuum. at the time when i purchased it i felt oh so grown up. 1 townhouse and 1 house later the husband and i were talking about an upgrade.
in comes...the Bissell! and...the Shark!
so far, 3 vacuums and 2 steam mops in, i'm loving both the Bissell Lift Off Multi-Cyclonic and the Shark Euro-Pro Steam Pocket Mop.
i do have to say though, now that my vacuum is picking up so much more stuff - i now see all the stuff my old vac wasn't picking up. ick. i guess better late than never right?
