    Thanks for this! I have 6 cats and 2 dogs and the hair is always a issue. I have a question: you show using the long attachment under the bed. I have a huge bed and I am certain there is a LOT of cat hair under there. I can't move the bed and my vacuum is just the upright part. Any ideas for cleaning under there?

      @Gretchen Are your floors carpeted? Using a canister vacuum you could inter-change the heads. It would reach under your bed. There is a carpet head, and wood flooring head.

    Try taping an empty papertowel roll to the end of your crevice tool to give it length, vacuum from one side then from the other side.

    I have always taken my broom to do the edges I think I need an easier vacuum with an eaiser lift off tool to do it all at one time. Thanks for the tips

    The biggest error most people do when vacuuming is going too fast. Slow down and you get a better suction with cleaner floors.
