In 2010 I was injured in a car accident using a dustpan to pick up trash became difficult for me. Bending or reaching to grab things from the floor would often result in me experiencing sharp back pains. I would sweep the trash into a pile and King Thrifty would finish cleaning up the floors. Recently we received the EyeVac for review purposes and OMG cleaning up around our home is a lot easier now! The EyeVac Home has been perfect for the kitchen or any room with a hard surface floor. What an amazing stationary vacuum!
