I thought I would try a stick vac for my tiny apartment with little storage but what I got was something I did not expect. This little machine replaces any large vacuum cleaner. It has so much suction and can get closer to my wall then any large vacuum cleaner ever has and cleaning under my bed has never been easier.. It is so east to clean and even picks up cat hair. It is so light weight and for me that is a plus! you can store this anywhere and it holds a charge for so long I can vacuum with this 3 times a week for 3 or 4 weeks without having to charge it. I am truly a big fan of the Euro-Pro Shark vac, that I would recommend this to all my friends and family and to everyone else. I've tried other stick vacs and they never worked to my liking. I am being honest about this product and I am a very satisfied customer.
I have to say, I was really disappointed in the purchase of the "Shark". It seems like it creates more work for me. Just for touch ups on my small tiled kitchen floor, it took forever, or didn't even pick up some items, like: crumbs, bird food etc. I'll end up looking for a more powerful floor/carpet vac.
It does a great quick job of vacuuming. Just remember to empty the dirt tray after each use. I clean it after each use and we charge it once a mouth.
I just bought this as we have many pets and even though I keep it clean I still just needed the extra comfort of knowing I cleaned it with a good carpet cleaner. This works great and is small and easy to put up in store, not big and bulky like some others.
