This post has been brought to you by Eureka SuctionSeal 2.0 on behalf of Collective Bias, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own.
It’s been a few months since we’ve moved into the new house and like the kitchen, I’ve been dragging my feet on sharing the office with you because, well, it’s never really all that tidy. It’s one of those rooms that is easy to leave the craft supplies out and simply shut the door because it doesn’t affect the rest of the home. Crumpled up fabric on the sewing desk? Yep. That happens more often than I’d like to admit. And while I’m going to share with you some crisp & clean home office photos, I’m also going to chat about a little about how I keep it that way because while it’s one of my favorite places to create, I have dogs with separation issues so it’s also their favorite place to hang out. Dogs hanging out in office = dog hair on floors.
I’m going to share a dirty (although it’s actually clean) little secret with you.
I am out of control when it comes to having clean floors. Like nearing OCD levels out of control.
I mentioned a couple of weeks ago how I handle the hardwood floors, but you guys, brace yourselves.
Hardwood has nothing on my obsession with carpet.
I have a serious love hate relationship with carpet to begin with. Unlike wood floors, you can’t see what’s underneath all that plush softness. When Stella’s white hair forms clumps on my dark wood floors, I can see it. Her white hair on my white carpet? It’s like a hidden nemesis.
When we were building our house, I went back and forth on whether to even put ANY carpet in the entire house that’s how much I don’t care for it. But at the end of the day, the bedrooms and my office won the great floor debate.
But let’s back up a bit.
As much as I despise the way carpet traps in the icky, there is something quite cozy about new fluffy carpet. And those lines you create when running the vacuum over it? Oh, y’all. It’s like little magic stripes of goodness. I adore those lines so much that when we were selling our house, I would literally vacuum before every single showing. Multiple showings? I would run home in between to hurry and put the fresh lines back. I’m convinced it’s why our house sold in 9 days.
That, and the brownies.
So let’s take a photo journey through the new office and then I’ll introduce you to my new friend, the Eureka SuctionSeal 2.0.
It’s quite impossible to get the entire room into one frame, so here you have room as you’re walking in.
And then if you glance across the room, this is where I reply to your emails and comments!
And keep some “happys” to remind me how far I’ve come in this blogging journey and how far I still want to go.
Also joining me on today’s tour:
(insert the reason I’m always on the prowl for vacuums that live up to their claims)
When I saw the box at Walmart advertising that it, in all caps, “CLEANS CARPET BETTER THAN DYSON”, I said to myself, “self, that’s quite a claim for something that is currently on rollback for only $129, and down from $148.88”.
Eureka wins when it comes to smart advertising because I sure did walk over to the box and begin to read more about it.
Suction Seal plates that raise and lower against the surface maintaining suction and seal without scattering debris. Sounds nice.
Air Speed Technology that uses a wide tube of air with minimal bends and twists allowing air to move more freely. Uh huh, keep talking.
“SuctionSeal rewind maximum cleaning power on all floors”. Wait, what? Did you say ALL floors?
Could this magic machine work on both my hardwood floors and carpets with just the switch of a knob?
My clean floor loving heart leaped.
Tossed it into the buggy and raced home to give it a whirl.
I plugged it in and prepared to be disappointed. “Aimee, you only paid $129 for this thing, do not expect it to perform as a pricier alternative. That’s called marketing, and they probably tricked you”
Even Stella was skeptical. She plopped right in front of, taunting it to crack under pressure.
The Eureka SuctionSeal 2.0 gathered me this in just a few sweeps across the office floor.
On my carpets that are only 6 months old.
On the same carpets that were vacuumed the day before with a Hoover.
In my office that rarely has the dogs in it unless I’m sewing.
Ok, well that’s pretty frequently. But still.
And the fact that you can SEE what you’re pulling up. I have never felt more dirty in all my life!!!
I mean, I know my dogs shed. But ewwwwwww………
And now Murphy and Milo are all like, “dude, she’s going to vacuum with that thing every day now that she sees what it can do”.
And they’re right.
And if you would excuse me, I’m going to go vacuum the bedroom.
Oh, and if you don’t want to take my word for it, check out the epic mess promo video. Glad my hound dogs aren’t THAT messy.
