Vacuums take a lot of abuse. Why not buy a long lasting vacuum like the Clarke Carpet Master. It comes in 3 sizes (12, 15, and 18) and with its 2 motor design this vac is set up to stop dirt in its tracks. It has all the attachments you will need to get into the tightest places with ease. It also comes equipped with a HEPA filter and worry free bags to keep the dirt from getting back into the air. Bag-less vacuums are nice but the second you dump the tank a lot of dust goes into the air and then right back on your nice clean floor. Yes the bags are an added expense but it’s worth it to know that all the dirt is being disposed of. So give the Carpet Master a try, you won’t be disappointed.
