Hi, I'm Steve Chubin at Steve's Sewing and Vacuum Center at King of Prussia, PA and today we are here to discuss how to buy a vacuum cleaner. On accessory vacuums, what you have here is a hand vac. These vacuums are very convenient to use for cleaning stairs, cars and other areas where you can't get a full size vacuum in to it or where you don't want to lift off the heavy weight of a vacuum on the steps. This particular vacuum again has a electric driven brush roll that electric motor turns these bristles so is very good for carpet on stairs and very good for automobiles. This particular vacuum has this ability to clean in surfaces like this such as the kick on a set of steps or the tread on a set of steps. It has a visor that can be pulled down on it. This particular vacuum also has a hose with a built in crevice tool that is good to where the steps meet the riser meets the part you stand on which is called the tread. It allows you to get into the corner very easily. It has a good amount of air flow that will do that job and do that job well.
