Why I love to vacuum

About 3 months ago I was on the hunt for a vacuum cleaner that was going to perform well but not drain my bank account. I took about a month to research as well as get some input from other moms on what they recommended. Of course most people said the Dyson was the must-have and was worth every penny. I am so happy I did not go the Dyson route. Don't get me wrong, if I felt like spending $400-$500 I would have so gotten one. Instead I went with the Eureka AirSpeed. A couple of my blog moms friends helped me out since they actually got to try out both the Eureka and Dyson. I went up to Walmart and paid about $119. I noticed that they are on sale for $98.96 right now. I tell you what, this is the best vacuum I have ever used and it has exceeded my expectations in every way. The suction power is amazing and I really love the hand tools. It makes stair cleaning so much easier and the nozzle is longer than any vacuum I previously owned. I really love the super long power cord. Not having to stop every 2 minutes to plug up into another outlet is a big plus for me! It works really well on bare floors (hardwood, tile etc.) I really like the bottom release dust cup. It seems cleaner to me. I remember the first time I used my AirSpeed and I thought I would faint with all of the junk that collected in the dust cup. This vacuum is a great value and I am completely happy with this purchase. Apparently so happy I did this review on my own with no compensation at all. Dwayne is going to get me for this one!

If you are shopping around for a new vacuum I would recommend this one hands down!

  1. I own a Bissell Powerforce and to be honest, I'm not as impressed with it now as I was when I first purchased it. It's also meant for bare floors, but it doesn't really clean them. In addition, the cord is not long enough. Also, the hand tools don't work half of the time. I'm tempted to see if I can find the Eureka AirSpeed at our wal-mart and give it a try.

  2. That's good to know. I don't think I'll pay 400 - 500 for a vacuum on any day! I know people don't like to give reviews without compensation but It's really hard to trust some reviews. Thanks I can trust this.

  3. The only thing that I hate worse than vacuuming is a dirty carpet.

  4. I like my vacuum except for one thing...the cord length.

  5. I have been thinking about a new vacuum since Black Friday. My current one is just not cleaning as well as it used to. I am going to have to check out this Eureka. I have some gift cards saved up! I am definitely a sucker for hand tools too! Thanks for sharing this with us Shelly :)

  6. Thanks for sharing. I don't have a vacuum right now and trying to sweep the floor with a broom is murder. With my grandson on the floor now, I need a good vacuum. You know how babies find the smallest things on the floor.

    I have to check out Walmart. I like the price. I wanted to pay under $150 and your research has helped me.

  7. This is one time I'm grateful to have hardwood floors. Vacuuming was the bane of my existence.

    Glad you found one you love though! And hahaha @ the free advertising in this blog post. Shame on you! ;-) J/k
