I was accustomed to a canister vacuum cleaner that I lugged around the home. It was heavy and I notice the weight when I had to go up and down the stairs. It was a chore I did not enjoy. Apart from the weight I had to vacuum bent over and I felt it in my back and neck. I have kids and pets and so whether I wanted to or not I had to vacuum at least every second day.
When the time came for me to replace my heavy canister type I was more than ready to consider something completely different. I couldn’t have chosen anything more different than the Dyson DC25. I was attracted to this model because it is upright and I wouldn’t have to drag around a vacuum cleaner in order to get my floors and carpets clean. The very though made me swoon. I was even more smitten when I felt just how much lighter in weight the Dyson was to my old machine. It would be like lifting a feather up and down the stairs. My back would be saved and I wanted it.
True to macho form my husband wasn’t impressed with convenience. He was accustomed to me being superwoman. He wanted to know about the technology. He was told this Dyson model was unique because it had a roller ball. The vacuum was placed on top of the roller ball and it gave incredible manipulation to the user. This meant the Dyson DC25 could go under low furniture, round corners and take on any angle. My husband was impressed. I knew the next hurdle was cost.
He did think $500 was a lot of money but he did understand he was getting cutting edge technology and quality that would last for years. This meant a saving in the long term and it all made sense to him. I just wanted to do my chores quickly and easily and I did.
