Ever since the Eureka Model 9 was first released in 1922, women everywhere have helped make Eureka a household name. Before the release of the first vacuum cleaner, sweeping was the name of the game and it was tedious at best. Can you imagine having to constantly move about your home, especially those with above average square footage, sweeping up dust and dirt every time someone walked through? Having had to use the sweep method many times myself, even on carpet, I can tell you that it’s a hassle. It takes more time than us mama’s can spare, leaves us with sore backs, aching shoulders and a resentment for anything that moves or has the ability to track in dirt.
Having owned Eureka products for many years of my adult life, I was excited to be able to feature the new Eureka Flash Stick Vacuum here for my readers to tune in to. I’ve always had great luck with Eureka models in the past, so I had absolutely no misgivings when the Flash arrived on my doorstep recently. In fact, I was ecstatic.
You know you’re getting old when you get excited for a new appliance! All jokes aside, I love when my house is freshly cleaned. It feels like something massive has been accomplished and crossed off of my to-do list, not to mention the fact that my house looks great after a good clean. Lines in the carpet from the vacuum? I think of them as a sign of a job well done.
Using the Eureka Flash makes my job around the house so much easier. Unlike some vacuum models that are still sporting the bulky, overly heavy design from years gone by, this particular model weighs just 7.4lbs, is easy to move around our home thanks to swivel steering, and its design is compact so it doesn’t take up a lot of space, no matter where it gets stored. From hardwood to carpet, the Eureka Flash makes getting the house in tip-top condition a breeze.
Additional features that help to make it more appealing as a household staple, include:
- 30ft power cord, for additional reach from room to room.
- LED headlights to help illuminate under furniture or dimly lit areas.
- 2-in-1 Dusting Brush and Crevice tool for added ease of cleaning tricky spaces
- Remove Dust Cup, making emptying out debris much easier than those frustrating old bags.
- Converts from Stick to Hand-held vacuum in a snap!
I don’t know about my fellow housekeeping mama’s but there’s something about a great vacuum that gives me such great satisfaction. Much like a great washer/dryer combo, knowing that I have a product that can tackle the mess left by my family, is a triumph over housework. Eureka has done it again in my book, making cleaning my floors a breeze and not an old day affair.
