Vacuum: RIP

Admittedly, I've been wanting a new vacuum for awhile. Mine just never seemed to quite pick up what it needed to. I got this one, a cheap Dirt Devil, about 6 years ago when I lived in Annapolis. Yesterday, I'm pretty sure it bit the dust, excuse the pun. All of a sudden, it started making a really loud noise, and something smelled like it was burning. I dissembled the vacuum, but didn't see anything that had been sucked into it and stuck or anything. This is where I left off...


It's still like this now. I am not sure what to do. I need a new one, I guess. I'm not sure what kind to get. I've always had an upright, but I'm thinking canister. I need a vacuum that will:

  • Easily go under my bed with good extensions to use for vacuuming my upholstery and drapes

  • Easily work on both hardwoods and my shag bedroom area rug without damaging either

  • Store in a relatively compact space

  • Keep the damn dust inside of itself

  • Be on the quieter side--the current one hurts my ears.

So, any vacuum recommendations?

  1. I have no reccommendations, but I'll be watching closely to see if anyone else gives one, because we need a new vaccum as well!


Since you have great taste in blogs, I don't think I have to tell you to be nice to each other...and don't spam me. Thanks!
