My favorite household chore by far is vacuuming. There is something so satisfying about sucking up stuff from the floor and leaving behind nothing but clean. So a large percentage of my house is hardwood flooring now, and stick vacuums are nice and easy for that. But, when it comes to bedrooms, and our 17 year old carpet in our house, we need something with a little more power.
The Electrolux Versatility Bagless Upright vacuum provides easy cleaning, floor to ceiling, with a large amount of power with it’s 12 amp motor. We had the opportunity to try it out in our home and so far we’re impressed. Here are the details:
14-foot cleaning wand–with a snap from the handle you can reach cobwebs on your ceiling, clean ceiling fan blades, and get those hard to reach places in your home that tend to trap dust and dirt. The want is light and I had no problem using it, not to mention I’m short so I can use the extra telescoping length.
HEPA filtration with charcoal—captures 99.97% of dust and dirt and absorbs odors. This is fantastic when 3 of us in the family have both indoor and outdoor allergies!
Quiet motor—our old vacuum is so loud, the kids actually will pick up and leave the rooms when I’m cleaning. The Versatility has a smooth, low rumble that doesn’t make you want to run and get earplugs!
Carpet/hard floor switch—I love that we can switch between the two! The really powerful suction on the carpets uses the brush rollers, and they retract to use on wood or tile to not damage delicate surfaces!
Attachments—The Versatility comes with a dusting brush to use on baseboards, furniture, vents, and blinds. The crevice tool gets into the tight spaces. The turbo nozzle is for stairs and upholstered furniture, there basically isn’t a surface you can’t clean! The turbo nozzle on the cleaning wand also worked brilliantly in our CAR! Our old shop vac works, but motor can deafen you, so we hated using it.
Bagless—Saves money on replacing bags, the canister is easy to open and replace when emptying.
After a full housecleaning, the dust cup canister was FULL of so much dirt we were shocked how much our old machine was leaving behind. The dust bunnies and fine dirt collected makes us feel good about the amount of CLEAN that is actually happening.
We could only really find one negative quality on the Versatility. The cord. It’s a mess and all over the place while in use. We would have loved a taut retractable cord on this machine.
