Abt sales specialist Mike Velasco was interviewed in our store for a “Shop Smarts” segment to be aired on the popular “House Smarts” syndicated TV program hosted by Lou Manfredini. For those of you who haven’t seen it, “House Smarts” is a 30-minute show that follows the progress of real homeowners’ home-improvement projects and talks about the lessons they’ve learned along the way. In addition, the program answers questions from other homeowners and provides useful home-improvement knowledge for people looking to start their own projects.
Since “House Smarts” also likes to stay up on the latest trends, Mike was asked about the newest vacuum cleaner technology, including Dyson’s Animal series vacuums, which have air-powered brushbars to remove pet hair from carpets and upholstery, and Miele’s Calisto vacuums, which feature a 1200-watt high-output vortex motor system and silence insulation.
Mike’s segment is scheduled to air this Saturday, May 16 at 5:30 a.m. in the Chicago area, but may be shown on a different day in other sections of the country, so check your local listings for the date and channel in your area. —by Graham W.
