Vaccuum ?

How often should you replace your vaccuum? Also, what is the best kind to get?? I have 4 kids with bad allergies to dust, plus a short haired dog that sheds.

  • We bought our Dyson a year ago and love it. I can't believe how much dirt, dog hair, and dust it picks up. I can't remember how long we had the other vacccuum ... definitely longer than 3 years. We replaced it because it wasn't picking up hardly anything, so we bought a Dyson. We purchased the normal one, for all floors, not the one for houses with animals, allergies or asthma ($100 more).

  • I got a Bissell Healthy Home vacuum this past summer and LOVE IT. I have two dogs, one of which needs daily brushing & still manages to shed another dog's worth of hair all over my house and the Bissell gets it all. I swear, the first time I used it the thing was sucking stuff up from under my floors...rofl. Seriously though, it really does work well and has the microban, which is great when you have pets, plus it has HEPA filtration. The on-board tools are handy and it has a nice long hose (I can put the vacuum at the bottom of the stairs and clean each step all the way to the top w/no trouble). The only negative thing I can think of is that I wish the collection canister was bigger, but I can live with the itty bitty canister to avoid having to buy vacuum bags.
