I bought this vacuum because I have 2 other vacuums just not doing a good job. I also bought the Pet Revolution Carpet Shampooer a few months ago and it is incredible so I thought get the matching vacuum!! I've cleaned everything but the kids! Haha because I love the shampooer so much I figured the vacuum should be as good! I wasn't wrong! I had only just shampooed the carpets the week before, then as soon as I got the vacuum I got right onto it! I was so shocked to empty the catch container 3 times! It was full of cat and dog hair, fine dust, etc. It's really light and easy to maneuver too. I love the long power cable, OMG it makes life soo much easier and vacuuming more efficient! It's not too loud for my sound sensitive Autistic kids and has reduced the dust and fur helping to relieve our hayfever. I truly love this machine! I like the pull out pole so you can use it in tight areas or the furniture, the thin attachment is perfect for between or under tight places. It's super easy to clean too. I've had MANY vacuums, but this is the best yet, even over a Dyson which spent twice the money on years ago. Hands down the best investment I've made this year for both Bissell products! Can't wait to clean my car next! Not a sponsored review this is the real deal!
