I searched for the best light weight product that would clean the 4800 sq.ft. of hardwood and tile floors that were driving me to distraction. Trying to keep up with the dust was becoming a daily challange but with the Hoover Stick Vac I can vacuum once or twice a week and I have noticed that there is less and less dust collecting even with many house guests and a dog. The Hoover Stick Vac does a great job of cleaning the wood and tile and surprisingly enough it also vacuums the area rugs. I would definitely reccommend this product.
