I'm thinking of getting a Swiffer Sweeper Vac. I need something to pick up the fur on the kitchen & hardwood floors.
What do you have that works the best?
I hate sweeping & then seeing the floor still full of fur.
I need some type of vacuum and I'm not looking for a
Dyson machine, but rather something easy I can grab & go.
I have a shark....not great on floors. Good on carpets, though.
I have a swivel sweeper....useless.
I'm up against 3 boys, 2 labs, 2 cats, 1 parrot & a husband...HELP!
So what do you all use?
I'm just giving your thread a bump because I'm always looking for that elusive "magic bullet", too. ;D
I got one of those bissel lift off for pets. Hard wood is my problem too, but you can turn off the brush and just use suction. It works pretty well. It has a great attachment that picks up all dog hair on furniture. We were looking at the Dyson but I just couldnt spend that kind of money on a vacuum, they dont last long enough around here ya know!

I got this at Target:
It's a rubber broom with a squeegee like thing on one side. It is great for the hardwood and the tile and the rugs I have just inside the patio door (indoor outdoor style carpet). The squeegee side is great for along the wall or cabinets.

For my wood and tile floors I use an Electrolux Pronto 2 in 1. It's a rechargeable "stick" vacumn that will also break down into a hand vac too. I have found that it works great for everyday fur clean up. It doesn't do well on carpet. I think I paid about $90 for mine but have now seen them for less at Costco.
I use the "Bissell Featherweight" vac... it does okay... I was looking to upgrade, but for $20 bucks, does the job... Now with 2 labs in the house, I may have to get something with a bit more powerful suction, and I just have to use it on a daily basis... Doesn't do well at all on carpet.
I have a black couch and carpet that hides the hair.

I bought the swiffer vac a few months back. It does ok the battery doesn't hold charge very long though I get maybe two sweeps of our kitchen out of it then have to charge it for a few hours which is a pain. It picks up the hair you cross right over but you have to make sure it's facing the right way (the vac part in in the front) and the cloth gets full pretty quick as it picks up the extras. I've used it some but most of the time I just grab the broom instead :-\
I'd like to find something better.
