Getting Clean Floors with Hoover & DirtDevil Extreme Cyclonic Quick Vacuum Giveaway (Rafflecopter) CLOSED

So far this summer my son and I have enjoyed being outside and hardly at home. But now that summer days are slowly coming to an end, we've started spending more time at home. This of course gives our family an opportunity to come over and visit. But visiting family means I have to clean certain areas of my apartment!


The one area in my apartment that needs some serious cleaning are my floors. I haven't given them a good cleaning since before winter time! Since then my son had dropped all sorts of juice and food on the floors. But I can't be mad at him since I've have tracked all sorts of dirt, grime and ickness on the floors also.

While my apartment doesn't have any carpet, except for an area rug in the kitchen, it does have two different type of flooring. In my kitchen and bathroom I have white tiles, while in my living room and bedroom I have wood like paneling. As you can see from the photo both are in need of a cleaning

Good thing I became a Hoover Dirt Devil Insider Ambassador while at Chicago. I really need the help of some of those vacuums and steam mops I saw during the International Housewares Show. While at the show I was able to handle both the Hoover Twin Tank Steam Mop and the DirtDevil Extreme Cyclonic Quick Vac. I really like the features on both machines and think either one would be great to help me clean my floors

We have to run the vacuum throughout the whole downstairs at least once a day. sometimes more. With 3 boys our vacuums really get used. We end up having to get a new vacuum about once every 2 years. Our vacuum is coming up on 2 years old so I'm kinda being proactive here :-)

I need a light vacuum that my kids can use to vacuum their rooms. Our dyson is very heavy for them to use!

I have cream white carpets and two young children under the age of 6...that's justification in itself. I desperately need a new vacuum ever since our present one has started coughing up dirt as we vacuum...BAWL!
