One was of clothing moths and after that it was a heavy dose of fleas. I have 3 cats here and the only way to get rid of the damned fleas was to vacuum the house every single day for 3 mos. straight.

As for the moths, ditto and then some! I had this thing out in the garage vacuuming the garage to get rid of the moth larvae.

OMG was an awful mess it was and yes, you can wash it out and put it back together. I've replaced the HEPA filter on it once (about $25 I think it was) and have washed the foam thing many times and it is still intact even after the likes of boric acid, etc. etc. etc.

*Whew* am I ever glad I had this thing. Bought it at COSTCO for $125.00 on sale if my memory serves me right and like you, I couldn't believe what is sucked up including stands of my own hair when it was 2 ft. longer and still had no grey! YIKES!!! Made me feel like a pig after having sucked up about 3 tanks of stuff the first couple of times around.

Even when I use it now, I tend to get 1/2 tank of crap every time! Unbelievable indeed!!

P.S. ON edit: I know what you mean about new carpets. I need them too but ...
