Also gets rid of carpet. At least the cheap carpet in my apartment. Concrete is sooo much easier to keep clean plus no worries about furniture scratches.

I like how carpet is soft and cushiony and that alone is a good trade for having to vacuum. Least for me.

Always the Bridesmaid...
One of my "better" jobs involved vacuuming with a ****ing heavy (the boss couldn't just use a commercial steam cleaner, no he had to have an industrial style canister steam cleaner, meaning I had to lift that 50 lb piece of **** in and out of his truck, etc) steam clean vacuum using some cleaning solution that basically would stain any wood and cause it to bleed onto the carpet. So I'd have to lift furniture with one hand while putting aluminum foil pieces on the other. And then this ghey mama's boy (trust me, I met his mother) would gripe and complain that I used too much foil, and could I lift it again and make a smaller piece. I put up with this guy (and his screwy hours/days which I was expected to schedule around) for a year and a half. This would nominate me for sainthood, so why is it I have no decent recommendation that will get me a job?

Well at least you guys have it easy. Carpets are a pain in the ass to clean especially pets. My stairs has carpets and tugging the vacuum is a pain in my rear end. And I happen to be the only one cleaning up the brush from the vacuum and removing the hair off too. It could be fixed with a product called Swivel Sweeper but can't trust those stuff unless you have back pain. Preferably have a vacuum that has good suction and doesn't lose power.

It ain't easy cleaning up cat gak balls from carpet. Nature's Miracle deodorizer doesn't cut it.
