Are you a pet lover and have to continuously deal with their pet hairs? If this is you, then be rest assured that we both share the same love and frustration. I bought a vacuum cleaner sometime ago when I didn't have a pet and could have sworn that it did a great cleaning job. You can imagine my surprise when the pet came and I still saw pet hairs after vacuuming! Trust me, this is one experience you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy - it makes it seem like you have been wasting your time for the entire period of time. Other than that, I had to deal with the dirt and hair particles spun out of the back of the vacuum cleaner. Before then, I would have said I loved and enjoyed cleaning but with the stress that vacuuming brought along with it, I dreaded this chore.
Since I loved pet, it was only a matter of time I got one. Funnily enough, I didn't think much about the extra vacuuming effort it would require. I remember angrily switching off the vacuum cleaner right in the middle of cleaning and going online to research for a new and better canister vacuum cleaner - it was really that bad! Then like most people, after investing about 20 minutes on researching, I soon realized it was not as easy as I thought it would be. Grudgingly, I managed to finish vacuuming the house that day but was certain I wouldn't be using it again. So I spent the entire night researching on a vacuum cleaner that was not only user-friendly but one that can accommodate the cleaning needs of myself and my pet.
The interesting thing about my research was that all the manufacturer's names I knew did not come up as top rated in customer's reviews. Before deciding to go with the Panasonic MC-CG937 "OptiFlow" Canister Vacuum Cleaner, I first came across and feel in love with its previous model. The Panasonic MC-CG937 "OptiFlow" Canister Vacuum Cleaner understood its job - to clean my home with ease - and it was willing to do it perfectly well. Since I had little time to waste (especially because I never planned to use my old vacuum cleaner again), I ordered for the product. I don't think I've been this anxious about receiving a product like I was with this. I tore open the box almost immediately and later realized it took me less than 15 minutes to assemble it. I aalready had a place to test it out on; the carpet in my bedroom had literarily become a bed for my pet.
I didn't realize how cumbersome my previous vacuum cleaner was until I tried lifting the Panasonic MC-CG937 "OptiFlow" Canister Vacuum Cleaner to my bedroom. With just a weight of 27 pounds, I would classify the vacuum as lightweight. The surprised expression on my face the minute I switched on the vacuum is better seen than explained. By the way, my pet is still scared of the "noise" from the cleaner, although it isn't even as loud as I expected. So let's just say I was happy I was alone at home when I vacuumed with the Panasonic MC-CG937 "OptiFlow" Canister Vacuum Cleaner for the first time. The amount of dirt and pet hair I saw in the dust bag is enough for my friends to classify my home a danger zone.
Just to give you a sneak peak at what this product is all about, here are some of its outstanding features.
The product comes with a dimension of 12 x 8.8 x 21.5 inches. This bagged vacuum cleaner also comes with a 14-inch base nozzle and a 360° swivel hose. The product is compact and has good application in both bare-floor and carpet cleaning. It also comes installed with the OptiFlow technology system.
If you have a home like mine, then this is ideal for you. At the time I bought this product, I had a 80-20 floor surface of bare-floor and carpet respectively. After getting my pet, I took away most of my carpet since the old vacuum cleaner wasn't doing a good job. After trying this product, gradually I began to bring back carpets into my home. The location of the floor and carpet switch makes it even more exciting using the product.
This technology, in simple terms, allows the vacuum cleaner to breathe easily. The technology pushes airflow through the dust bag and prevents the dirt particles from spraying out. The product also has a HEPA Media Filter. If you know this filter well, you would know it's one of the things that makes any good vacuum cleaner worth buying. This media filter can extract any kind of tiny particles like allergens, pollutants, and irritants. So while the HEPA filter sucks out these minute particles, the OptiFlow keeps the unit well aerated.
Just like other Panasonic vacuum cleaners of this model, this product runs on a 12 amp motor. With this motor power, the vacuum cleaner can generate a great suction power and better performance. No wonder it has so much suction power, even when used on carpet.
Carpet Height Adjustment
The Panasonic MC-CG937 "OptiFlow" Canister Vacuum Cleaner can also be adjusted into four positions. This allows for deeper cleaning of carpets of different thickness. The adjustment positions are numbered 1 to 4.
The handle is slightly curved and allows for pproper balancing when in operation and for lifting the vacuum cleaner up and down the stairs, if need be. The handle also hold the on/off switch to move from floor cleaning to carpet cleaning and vice versa.
The Panasonic MC-CG937 "OptiFlow" Canister Vacuum Cleaner comes with attachments for easier cleaning. The dust brush is highly needed in Spring when the house is more susceptible to dust particles. The upholstery brush can be attached easily for dusting and cleaning upholstered furniture. The crevice tool and floor brush are also design to work effectively when cleaning. Unlike my previous vacuum cleaner, this product allows you to ddissociate the wand with little effort. This way you can attach the accessories or attachments.
360° Hose Swivel
First of all the hose is made from a tougher material and can not easily cut if pulled. Usually one is not supposed to pull or drag the vacuum cleaner with the hose but I do it subconsciously sometimes. That was when I discovered that the hose is firm. Its 360° swivel makes it easy to work around a tight area without the worry of getting the hose wound around the unit.
Automatic Cord Reel
The product comes with a 24 foot power cord. The power cord can be automatically reeled which makes it easy for use over a wide cleaning floor area.
Since I got the Panasonic MC-CG937 "OptiFlow" Canister Vacuum Cleaner I have not had and issues with it. It was a great relief from the struggle I had to go through just to clean my home. Now I have no worries if my pet goes into any room in the house. I think the price is fairly good, especially for the features and functions you expect from it. If you are a pet lover and looking for a vacuum cleaner that works in cleaning after you pet, the Panasonic MC-CG937 "OptiFlow" Canister Vacuum Cleaner is the answer you have been searching for.
If you need to get the accessories for this vacuum, you would do well to get the exact one for it. It doesn't fit well with other generic accessories. Just get the dimension and specifications you need or go with a sample and pick the exact same thing. This will help avoid having to return stuffs because they don't fit right well as they should.
The Panasonic MC-CG937 "OptiFlow" Canister Vacuum Cleaner may not be budget friendly to most people but it's worth every penny. If you absolutely exhausted from trying out cheaper vacuum cleaners that just don't seem to deliver, I would advice that you save up some cash and get this product. For me, it's basically a cleaning saver!
