Living in a home with 2 kids, 4 adults and 2 dogs means creates a less than sparkling situation at times. With the constant traffic, our floors and furniture are in need of cleaning far too often in my mind. We all do our best to keep up on the housework but it’s not a natural talent of mine and my Mum has been finding it difficult to maneuver my heavy vacuum into the spots where she wants it.
Mum loves a tidy, well-kept home (as do I) so she’s been getting quite frustrated that she isn’t able to physically perform as she once was. When I was offered the chance to review Review Dirt Devil’s 360 Reach Bagless Stick Vacuum, I immediately thought how perfect this unit could be for Mum.
It has the versatility to reach where my larger vacuum can’t and the tools to perform! It comes with:
- 4-in-1 Stick Vac – Go from floors to ceilings to couches in seconds.
- Cyclonic Filtration – Cut through any mess with powerful suction.
- Vac+Dust Ceiling Fan Tool with SWIPES™ Washable Microfiber Pad – Vac and dust ceiling fan blades. Fits most fans.
- Vac+Dust Hard Floor Tool with SWIPES™ Washable Microfiber Pad – Pick up heavy dirt & debris while the SWIPES™ microfiber pad captures the dust.
- Vac+Dust Above Floor Tool with SWIPES™ Washable Microfiber Pad- Easily tackle vents, hard-to-reach corners, shelves and more.
- Bottom Empty Dirt cup with MaxFill™ Technology- Prevent dirt and hair from getting stuck in the dirt cup.
- 6″ Powered Stair & Upholstery Tool – Adjust to cover every part of each step.
- Extended Wand- Stretch from floors to ceilings and catch everything in between.
- 27ft. Power Cord – Easily Clean your couch then your stairs without unplugging.
- Reusable Quick-Rinse Filter- Don’t bust your budget on expensive replacement filters.
- Crevice Tool- Get to hard-to-reach cracks and crevices.
- Pivoting Extension Tool – Pivot to get above the mess.
- Storage Bag – Easy and convenient storage.
- 3-Year Limited Warranty – Dependable quality. Expert customer support.
Once it arrived, Mum and I opened it together and she took over. The unit has a handy storage bag which has a place for each attachment; this is nice for storing the unit and keeping all of the pieces together.
After using it for a few weeks, Mum has been raving about her new-found abilities! She says that the Dirt Devil Reach has enough suction to do a “fine job” and with the attachments she’s able to reach places where she hasn’t been able to for years.
With the pivoting extension tool and the Swipes pad, Mum’s favourite new activity is to stand in the middle of her living room dusting her ceiling fan. This is utterly amusing to watch as the 2 dogs stare at her in confusion. Finding a tool which helps my elderly Mum to feel independant has been a blessing, the fact that it’s of high quality and a reasonable prices makes it a no-brainer to recommend to friends.
The fact is that this wee unit is perfect for the far-away or little jobs in the house. It reaches up to the high crown mouldings, down to the corners of the room and it does a good job getting the dog hair off of the couches.
With a price tag of just $129 it’s affordable and is handy-dandy to have on hand. Next up is doing our vehicles before Winter truly sets in…I may need back up for that one as it always seems that the french fries hidden under the kids seats are out to get me!
