Oh, and a quick question. Yesterday it occurred to me that if you have no carpet and no lead paint dust to worry about, why would you choose to buy a vacuum cleaner over a broom/dustpan/mop?

Discuss?

Because you hate mopping with a sloppy wet passion, but vacuuming soothes your inner child in ways that cannot be explained.

Because you're lazy and you feel like you can do a better job faster with the vacuum. Or at least I do :)

Our vacuum is about to go, but I've been holding off on a new one for just that reason. I'm thinking that I'll go with a sharkmop/broom/handheld vacuum combo, but that theory has yet to be tested.

If I had no carpet and our vacuum died, I would not buy a new vacuum unless I saw a good deal on a Roomba. Especially if I had another chinchilla.

I only use the vacuum on the area rug and I only do that because my carpet sweeper died. Our vacuum sucks, but it's not worth it to me to buy a new one. I'm a sweeper.

Because the vacuum is so much easier. Broom/dustpan involves a lot of piling up the dirt in a certain area, struggling to get every last bit, remembering where you've swept already and where you haven't, preventing anyone from running through it, etc. the vacuum does it's thing and it's gone. I have a little $18 shopvac type thing from Target. I suck up everything with that bad boy. Dirt, gravel, crayons, paper chunks, cobwebs, spiders, food bits, spilled water, unruly children. Okay, not yet.

Since working at Boston Chicken I have allways preffered mops. There is a professional set of mops and bucket in the basement.
