As much as I love the Holloway House Quick Shine Glide Sweeper, I must first say that you still need your regular heavy duty vacuum but this glider sweeper is a must have addition to your cleaning repertoire. It works so well with virtually ever kind of floor's surface in your home. It vacuums but unlike any other vacuum you've ever had. It doesn't just suck the dust and dirt up, it has dual rotating mechanisms that continuously rotate while you're vacuuming and that rotating function combined with the strong suction power of the vacuum makes a huge difference. What else I really love about the Holloway House Quick Shine Glide Sweeper is that I can use it on my kitchen floor that's covered in cereal crumbs and stomped on dog food and then use the same vacuuming device and shine my kitchen floor, right after I've just gotten up all of the crumbs. And then after shining the kitchen floor, I can go and do a light vacuum of the dining room. Perfect combo. It's a win/win.
