With the holidays now firmly behind us, there might be quite a bit of cleanup looming in your very near future. Between glitter fallout from old decorations, a wilting Christmas tree that managed to hold on through the new year and the confetti that helped you kick off 2022, casual sweeping may be no match for that post-December mess.  

So whether you’re recouping after hosting a bunch of family and friends throughout the holidays or simply doing some early bird preparations for spring cleaning, a new vacuum makes a great first big ticket buy in 2022. 

Looking to take one big chore off your plate this year? Try a robot vacuum that can keep your floors spotless without you having to lift a finger. Made a New Year’s resolution to keep your car cleaner than you have in the past? A portable vacuum cleaner is great for maintaining a crumb-free car.  

And pet lovers are sure to adore the Bissell Symphony Pet mop and steam vacuum cleaner to help handle any animal-related messes they might encounter.
