i have been looking into buying a handheld vacuum for quite some time, but keep on putting it off. i'm getting sick of our current rug-cleaning method (picking up and kicking/punching to get the dirt off, then sweeping the floor beneath), so here i am...
i live in a small (~500 sq. ft) apartment with hardwood floors. there are area rugs in the living room and bedroom, the bathroom has tile floors and the kitchen has those fake tile stickers.
i definitely need something small, as storage space is minimal, but my experience with dust busters is that they don't work.
is a dyson
worth the price?
how about this dirt devil cone
or a roomba
so please send me your mini-yet-powerful vacuum suggestions. thanks in advance! if something works for cleaning the whole apartment and not just the limited rug space, even better.
