Generally, I’m not one to sweat the small stuff. But my stairs are bugging me. For those of you with stairs, how on earth do you vacuum them? We have a central vac system but it doesn’t have any kind of attachment for stairs. I went to the Beam store in Joplin to get myself a stair cleaning attachment and there isn’t one! I have all there is. Then I decided to buy a separate hose so I wouldn’t have to haul it upstairs and downstairs. It was over $500! No, thanks! I love the central vac but I wasn’t about to pay $500 for a second hose. I still wouldn’t have anything for cleaning the stairs.
I recently got this Eureka to use downstairs and on the stairs but really . . it’s a big honking heavy vacuum cleaner and I hate dragging it up the stairs and then dragging it back down. The baby gate is to keep Speck from going up and down the stairs . . don’t get any crazy ideas about why I have a baby gate! 🙂
Anyway, there has to be a better way to vacuum stairs. This isn’t the first house I’ve had with stairs but it it is the first house I’ve had with white carpet on the stairs . . and I didn’t put it there but if I thought I was staying here, I’d replace it, along with the white carpet in the family room. And then I’d like to pass another law . . white carpet shall never be manufactured again. I put white carpet in our house in Texas and about met my maker when I decided the carpet had to be replaced after four months. Never again would I ever put white carpet in a house but I can’t help it that the previous owner of this house put in white carpet. I wonder if they did it right before they put the house up for sale . . just as a cruel joke to the next owner! I’m betting that’s exactly what they did!
