Our old upright bagless vacuum (I say old but really only ~4 yrs old) was a gift and while it was fabulous for a while it no longer worked. We were using our shop vac as a temporary solution but now that two floors of the house are “done” to a degree, it was high time to step it up and stop schlepping a shop vac to the third floor! -Enter hours and hours of research here.-
Slim is pretty sweet because it comes with a variety of cleaning appendages you can clip onto the main vacuum body, and, it’s cordless. It has a head with a rotating brush, which can be attached directly to the vacuum or the extension tube, which makes it perfect for “regular” style cleaning:
One of the main reasons we went with this model was the ability to clean our three sets of steep wood stairs without the hassle of a cord or dragging a clunky vacuum up the steps. Seeing as I have unresolved stair issues, anything that makes stair traversing/cleaning easier gets a gold star in my book.
So far so good, although we do wish the battery lasted longer than 15 minutes! Once we start using it on a regular basis we may decide to get a second battery. It seems perfect for those quick cleanup jobs in the kitchen or hall, and does a great job on our area rugs. And window surround:
