Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! It is that time of year when your vacuum is going to get a major workout! It is also when you will notice how happy or not you are with your vacuum. Notice how well it does or doesn’t pick up. Notice how much dirt yours puts back into the air. Owners of bagless vacuums will see this. Give it a quick swipe of your finger near the seams. The fine brown powder you see on your hand ( and sitting on the machine) is from the vacuum and you and your family are breathing it! Point is you can never go by the television advertising and hype about how they filter the air. Check with your Independent Vacuum Dealer and find out what they have to suggest. Remember we can carry almost every brand out there but we don’t by choice. We choose the brands that perform the best. Listen and then decide. It is amazing what you will learn. In the meantime watch out for all the ribbon, pine needles and tinsel on the floor. Vacuuming up these in great amounts will stress the belt on your vacuum and clog it. A safe holiday season and A Happy and Healthy New Years to you all.
