A Versatile Vacuum
It is important to buy a vacuum based on your needs. If you’re single, a small, inexpensive model may do the trick. With kids and pets around, you’ll want to invest in one that can stand up to regular use.
A good vacuum really is an investment and one that should be able to last many years. Also, it is good if you have back pain because you don’t have to bend that much.
No carpet? No problem. If your home is hardwood or linoleum throughout, you can skip the vacuum and opt for a more manual solution. A broom, dustpan, and mop are the most basic solutions, though a good wet-dry sweeper may make the chore a little easier.
