Let me tell you, trying to take a photo of this vacuum wasn’t easy. With its super long neck and shiny shell, I was contorting myself in all sorts of ways to try to get a “full body” shot.
In the end, I gave up and headed to where the pros play.
Now isn’t that pretty? I have no idea what rigging they used to make that vacuum look so… elegant… but I’m glad they did.
We were sent the Oreck Venture Bagged Canister vacuum to have a whirl with it. I already have a portable vacuum, but sometimes I need extra time with my vac. As in, three floors and some slobby children’s worth of time.
I’m sure I’m not the only one to admit that I vacuum every. single. day. I didn’t think that the floors I chose were all that dark, but when you’ve got the contrast of crumbs, pencil shavings, dirt… the sweat from your mother’s brow… showing up on the floor, the visual becomes sandpaper on your sanity. You have to vacuum it up!
The Oreck Venture comes with a soft floor tool, which is what I use most of the time. It’s got soft bristles that pick up the fluff and hair from the ground, while sweeping up the dirt, etc, in the hose.
I do have to say that this vacuum is crazily lightweight. My girls can easily vacuum around the house without having to struggle at ALL with the canister. It has crazy maneuverable wheels that allow it to turn on a dime.
There are also five speeds of “suckage” that this vacuum can put out. I imagine that various carpets or upholsteries might not want the “super-suck” option, but for the most part….
….I’m turning it up to high.
Really, the only thing that I might change about this vacuum is that it’s got a bag, and isn’t a bagless vac. But, with its HEPA filter, I think that’s how they designed it to keep the dust in, rather than out.
It’s a happy little addition to our family – and I love that I can rope the kids into cleaning up their crumbs.
Because I sure didn’t leave them there!
