Our old canister vacuum cleaner is bulky and the bags are costly. Over the years I've often considered purchasing a new one, but never could quite pull the trigger. When I had the opportunity to try a new upright vacuum cleaner of course I jumped at the chance. And the timing was perfect with spring cleaning in full force at our house.
The BISSELL PowerForce Helix retails for under $50 so I wasn't sure what to expect. Sometimes you get what you pay for, but this time I've really been surprised by the quality. The powerful suction is quite impressive - so much so that the tank filled with dirt even when the floors were supposedly clean.
The rotating brush removes deep embedded dirt and hair and larger particles of dirt are forced to the bottom of the tank so that the filter is able to work without getting backed up. The best part is that I don't have to buy replacement bags anymore. The tank can be emptied and the filter is washable. Read all about it here.
I found it a little disturbing to see how much dirt was in the tank while at the same time thankful to know it was no longer in our rug after a couple of passes with the BISSELL.
Being able to vacuum draperies is a must because they can get really dusty in no time, especially following pollen season. The attachment makes this a breeze removing all dust and debris leaving behind fresh, clean curtains.
I also give windows, baseboards, and ceiling fans a good pass to remove dust and other debris that settles there. The attachments are easily accessible on the outside of the vacuum cleaner which makes changing tasks super easy.
The little crevice tool is perfect for tiny spaces where crumbs can accumulate and for getting to those hard to reach spots under the fridge and oven.
Reagan wasn't sure what to think of the new noise in the house, but gave lots of kisses once the job was finished.
