Two years ago, my husband and I started a cleaning service. We realized early on that on some of our jobs, that we would need a vacuum. We did not want just any vacuum. We wanted one that would give us the results that would be pleasing to our clients. Eureka is a name that we had trusted in the past to help us with our home cleaning. So we bought this vacuum took it on a few jobs with us and noticed that not only did we get the results that we needed but our clients were very pleased with the work that we had done. We are still using the vacuum today and so far we've had no problems. Because we had contracts with building owners and home owners, we needed a vacuum that could withstand the test of being used a lot and cleaning areas that were not so easy to clean. The vacuum is easy gliding and picks up trash on the floor very easy. Once I go over areas with carpet one time, I do not need to keep going over the same area. We have so many jobs that we just do not have time for this. The vacuum is easy to store and not so heavy that it is a problem to carry it from job to job. This is a top of the line vacuum that is not only great for home use but if a person is in cleaning business then they can depend on this Eureka vacuum to get the job done.
