Find the Best Vacuum Cleaner For Your Needs!

Best Vacuum For Your Needs

Finding the best vacuum cleaner is difficult in our overly advertised world.

One company is showing a sleek new look while the other is stating how lightweight their vacuum is. Of course every vacuum cleaner company states that they have the best suction using their “technology” however the real proof is in the actual breakdown of how it functions. Every company can say their vacuum is the best compared to the rest, but before you spend your hard earned money, is the vacuum you are looking into ideal for your home?

HondaVac Vacuum Cleaner = No more Interior Car Washes?

Shopvac vacuums are not just for your garage any more. The next best thing is on the horizon; Honda is slated to release a 2014 Touring Elite model Odyssey with an optional vacuum cleaner, an industry first!  Co-developed with ShopVac, the HondaVAC  comes with various attachments, a replaceable Shopvac filter and canister bag, plus a hose they claim can reach virtually any area of the interior. I can only hope this feature filters down to various makes and models, because I can’t stand staring down stale French fries, loose change and other unmentionables stuck in hard-to-reach places in my car much longer. We’re confident that it’s quality will be top-notch, as is their extensive line of popular products that we carry replacement parts for, like the ShopVac Wet Dry cartridge filter. Crucial Vacuum is slated to provide parts for the HondaVAC in the future, so be sure to check our website for availability.

I was waiting patiently for an entry-level vehicle with a fridge in it, but it seems like that option will be exclusive to luxury rides for the foreseeable future. Check out our extensive line-up of Shopvac Bags and Shopvac filters and stay tuned for the Hondavac vacuum filter coming to our website soon!

Cleaning Pet Hair

Cleaning Pet HairI love my pets! I have two that are the sweetest, kindest, and most adorable little balls of fur. As much as I love playing with them, petting them, and having them part of my life, I hate the hair. It’s everywhere! I find pet hair on my carpets, furniture, and clothes. I’ve tried those lint rollers to pull clean the hard-to-get pet hair off my clothes and furniture, but it doesn’t do much.

Dander is sticky and helps fur stick to places we don’t want it. The more your pet cleans himself, the stickier the hair. Cats are exceptionally clean and their hair doesn’t budge unless it’s sticking to freshly laundered clothes. But there is a solution to cleaning up after little balls of fur. The Gonzo Pet Hair Lifter works for both cats and dogs! Even better, it is reusable and easy. Continue reading »
