To test the vacuum we tested it on both the carpet and a wooden floor. We threw dirt and some rocks on the wooden floor and it picked it up immediately. On the carpet it took a couple swipes instead of just one to get the dirt out completely but the vacuum left nothing behind.
There was only one issue with the vacuum, the surface area where dirt is sucked up from we felt was a bit small. So it didn't cover a whole lot of area in one swipe. But we sort of expected that with the lightweight, portable design of the vacuum.
If you are looking for a portable vacuum that has enough power to clean your floors on any surface then the Dirt Devil Vacuum Cleaner Simpli-Stik is a good option. Don’t expect it to do heavy duty work though. It is easy to store and provides you enough cord for you to easily move around, cleaning your home or apartment.

If you have messy children in the home then we recommend you think about getting something more heavy duty as it may take you slightly longer to clean the floors with the Dirt Devil Vacuum Cleaner Simpli-Stik due to its small suction opening. Overall, it is a great buy for its low price point.
