Vacuum Cleaners and David Bowie! No Really!

Vacuum Cleaners, David Bowie … admittedly its a bit of a stretch, Vacuum cleaners are hardly a sexy news item – if a news item at all. So when I come across something that has a human interest element, well … I just have to share it.

To Love, Honour and Vacuum!

Had to laugh. Was browsing on the internet and came across a blog “To Love, Honor and Vacuum!
Who wouldn’t relate to that?
Now you can replace the word “vacuum” with most anything you want, “iron” comes to mind or “mow the lawn,” perhaps even “walk the dog.” But for my money I’ll stay with vacuum, after all Steve and I are in the vacuum cleaner business and it just makes so much sense.
It doesn’t matter who plugs the cord into the wall but one thing that is for certain and that is vacuuming is not one of those optional “till dust bunnies do us part” things. You gotta keep your house dust free, mites free and …read more

Tips on Buying a Vacuum Cleaner

Not all vacuums are created equal nor does one model fit all floors. At Vacuum Works we have customers that come in and stand at the entry way with that glazed deer caught in the light look – they know they need a vacuum cleaner but have no clue where to start. The flip side of that experience is that they know exactly what they want because they saw it on TV, not stopping for a moment to consider whether that vacuum is the best suited for their needs.
