Other Vacuums - Reviews and Recommendations
Upright vacuum with stretch hose is an excellent choice as the main vacuum cleaner for home or apartment.
However, there are many situations where cleaning tasks are done faster and more easily with other vacuums, for example, cleaning a car or a boat, or cleaning in emergencies and similar.
