It wasn’t long after I bought myself my own home that I discovered just how helpful certain appliances could be. Without having to clean up all of those little messes around the house myself, I never realized how much of an issue they could be. It wasn’t long until I acquired a whole bunch of new expenses in terms of home appliances did I realize how many of these things I would actually require in order to keep my home in the kind of condition that I could enjoy.
One appliances in particular that I’ve found invaluable for myself is a decent hand held vacuum cleaner. I never even had used one of them back at the house I was used to living in, but I found a lot of opportunities to use one when I began living on my own. Especially since the home that I purchased contained multiple floors, it became a nuisance rather quickly to have to carry around the device. Going up and down a couple of flights of stairs to clean up a little bit of coffee grounds spilled on the floor gets old pretty quickly!
The Best Hand Held Vacuum – Time and Places
A few scenarios, including the one mentioned above, lead to me realizing how important and helpful a hand held vacuum cleaner would be. This wasn’t the only one, however. Especially after I purchased the appliance, I was quick to recognize plenty of other situations that this would be great in.
Anywhere Pets Often Reside – We’ve discussed utilizing a handheld vacuum for pet hair in the past, but there’s plenty of other opportunities to use a hand held vacuum cleaner when you have pets!
If you have a cat which utilizes an indoor litter box, then you probably are already familiar with the mess that this can make anywhere within about five feet or so of the box. Not only do the cats tend to kick little pieces of litter out of the box when burying, but they also have a tendency to track some of it for a few steps or so outside of the box itself.
This is a great opportunity to use your hand held vacuum cleaner. Simply run it for a couple of moments around the area immediately surrounding the litter box and you should be more than good to go.
A pet hamster, or anything which uses a similar kind of material for bedding within the cage, is another great opportunity to use your new appliance. Since these animals have a habit of kicking all of their bedding out of the cage and into the surrounding areas, having a hand held vacuum cleaner which is light and portable enough to deal with these messes on the fly is a great asset.
