Great for short pile carpet
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 October 2016
A really handy little product. It's not as thorough as a vacuum cleaner, but for short pile carpet needing a quick once-over, it's absolutely perfect. It's very light, picks up a surprising amount, and it's very easy to empty the dust compartments. The price is very good too, and putting it together was simple. It would be perfect for the elderly and people with mobility issues as it's so light and easy to sweep.
The reason I've given it three stars is the screw-together handle works itself loose quite frequently at the joins, and it's relatively slim, meaning it bows slightly when in use. It's also not fantastic on hard floors. Whilst it does pick up about 50% of the detritus that accrues daily on a hard floor, it's not as good as a sweep with a broom and dustpan.
That said, this is a light, good value sweeper for short pile carpet, and great between vacuuming or a for quick spruce up . Also, it uses zero electricity... bonus!
