That is always what I seem to be saying to my carpet. With four kids, two adult cats, and one large eighty pound Black Lab, my carpet takes a beating. There is constantly traffic in and out of the house, so the carpet needs to be taken care of regularly. Our pets shed as well too, and I hate to see pet hair laying around, so I vacuum a lot.
I have to admit though, I have not always been this diligent with keeping clean. The kitchen floor is what I hate to clean the most though, and our dog gives the floor regular baths with his tongue. He is our canine vacuum and mop, all rolled into one. That is how I like to save energy by not cleaning. Why should I mop when the dog does it for me, right?
Now-a-days, it is wise to be as energy-efficient and earth friendly as you can. One company that is striving to be more energy-efficient is Dirt DevilThey have developed a new cordless vacuum that is the first cordless vac to receive Energy Star Approval! The new AccuCharge Stick Vac and Hand Vac use 70% less energy!!
I have actually been looking for a vacuum that is a bit easier to use, instead of hauling out my regular one. It does the work I need it too, but it is so bulky, and I like how the AccuCharge Stick Vac is so inconspicuous. It also looks easy to use and maneuver around tight places. I really like the fact that it is energy efficient though, it helps me to save on our bills, and does good for the Earth!
I think I'll be looking for this soon!
