It appears that I might have gone through my fourth vacuum cleaner in four years today. This one only last about six months. And, believe me, I don't vacuum very often. It's just that it's Holden's shedding season, and all the hair just is too much for any vacuum not called a shop vac to handle. Holden is a collie/sheperd mix who also looks to have a bit of husky in him, so his hair is thick and plentiful. For a while, I went just with a shop vac in my house, but my knees began to ache after a while. Now I think I'm back to a shop vac, unless I can figure out how to fix the upright vac.
This time, it's not that the belt keeps breaking, but that it doesn't suck. I keep turning it off, taking it apart, and unclogging it, but it doesn't appear to be any use. It just becomes clogged again immediately.
I probably should invest in a heavy duty vacuum that costs more than $60 or $70 next time. But I'm worried that it will be just more of the same so I'll be out $200 instead of $60.
So, if you're coming to my house concert tonight, don't look at the floor too closely. And bring your Claritin if you're allergic.
