We have the Dirt Devil broom at work and this thing does not work. One day our 3 hole punch got jammed and someone decided that it would be a great idea to just open it up right on the desk versus over a garbage can. The hole puncher exploded upon opening and little paper circles went flying everywhere. So being lowest in the order of hierarchy in the office, I was asked to clean it up. I grabbed the Dirt Devil and went to work. Let's just say I was lucky if it even picked up an eighth of those little circles. I ran it over the carpet again and again but the broom simply wouldn't pick anything up. I turned it around to see if it was jammed and it all looked clear so I tried over and over again and nothing happened. I finally gave up and tried using a regular broom. I got most of it up that way and then resorted to packing tape to pick up the stragglers. Overall, no impressed and I definitely wouldn't buy this for my home. Maybe objects need to be more rigid and not flat?
