When my Eureka Suction seal vacuum arrived, I found myself very skeptical. I have had Eureka before, and was not always pleased. The manufacturer boasts that it has suction seal, and brush roll cleaner, and what interested me most was the claim that it eliminated and reduced scattering of dirt, and particles etc. I immediately wanted to put my Eureka to the test. Having two very messy indoor cats, my first test was to be on all of the scattered litter that my cats have strewn about. What I found was the suction seal did actually perform extremely well. When I vacuumed over the litter, the Eureka actually picked up everything in it's path. More to the point it did not throw or scatter the litter, it sucked everything into the vacuum with ease.The Eureka seemed to actually pull the litter, and the hair from the sides, and into the vacuum. Excellent. I was very surprised and impressed with the performance of the Eureka suction seal vacuum. This vacuum is so easy to use and was not as loud as most other vacuums that I have purchased. With a wider vacuum head and with the attachments mounted directly on the vacuum itself, I was pleased with how easy it was to go from the carpet, to the tile, then quickly pull the hose off of the clip, and add an attachment to go directly from the floors to the drapes and then to the baseboards and everything else in the room. With the length of the 80 plus inch hose and the 27 foot retractable cord, I was able to clean nearly two very large rooms without moving the plug. The brush roll cleaner was so easy to use, simply step on the pedal for 10 seconds and you are done. It actually works great. I have hair that is down well past my waist, cleaning the vacuum brush was always a difficult task, but not with the Eureka brush roll cleaner. It was amazing. It seemed to chop it up and the roll was completely clean. Emptying the canister, [dust cup], was also just a push of a button, this releases the container, empty it and snap back into place. The filter in the canister is washable so you can re-use it over and over again. Dump the dust cup and I was ready to go again. I would highly recommend the Eureka Suctionseal with the brushroll cleaner to anyone and everyone. Some of my other vacuums use to blow dust from the vacuum, but I found that this vacuum did not. It is extremely efficient and easy to use.
