Today I bought a new vacuum cleaner. Exciting, I know. But the old one just sucked, or actually, didn’t. This new one is nifty, small, light, stores all the accessories “on board”, is a gorgeous hot pink and was inexpensive.
In my two-storey home I have 2 vacuum cleaners, one for upstairs and one for downstairs. It saves time carting up and down, as well as wear-and-tear on the stairwell.
This new purchase got me thinking about ducted vacuum systems. To my mind I can’t see the benefit in the investment of space or dollars. The unit itself is pretty big, and then there’s the substantial hose to store. It’s certainly not cheap to buy and install. And I doubt the hose is long enough to reach the garage so I can clean inside the car.
Am I wrong about ducted vacuum systems? I love my portable, cheap, pink vacuum cleaner. I’d love to hear a different viewpoint.
