This guy shows up at my door wanting to demonstrate a Kirby … I had this room where the beige carpet was just looking awful, my son’s bedroom, spills, etc, stained bad. I had been covering with rugs. I said if you can make this carpet clean I will buy it! I’ll be darned if he didn’t get that carpet looking like new! So I wrote him a check. That was one year ago. I have never regretted it. I do not have to pay a carpet cleaner once or twice a year now, and it fires up and works perfect every time! I love it. … With vacuum cleaners you get what you pay for. If you buy a $100.00 vacuum it will be okay for maybe a couple months if your lucky but it won’t be long before it goes and then you have to buy another one.
