    Well I can say without fear of contradiction that I am not a fan of vacuuming.  A few months ago I bought the current one.  I have discovered that I really do not like either emptying bags or replacing them.  So that made the Dyson a winner.  Then I found my back didn't like the ones where the weight is on the floor, so I got the current one where the weight is in your hand & it suits me (& my back) much better.  
    I must say though that the hoover, which was mothers before she replaced it, lasted the longest & only gave up after travelling south 200 miles for a few years then east 150 miles for a few years then back north 200 miles before it gave up & only because it went in storage with a load of rubbish in it & jammed it all up.  Who knew a vacuum cleaner could lead such an interesting life.

    Good luck with getting back into work pleased that your employer has listened and you have a plan. 

    As for the vacuum cleaner I was always a D*son fan then we moved to a large property so got a refurb Henry with a really strong motor which was great until we moved to a 1 bed and it was just heavy and annoying. When we got a cleaner she refused to use it and we got a Sh**rk which she is the only one that uses so I cannot really comment but it seems nice a light and takes up a lot less space.

    When I was chatting with the vet last summer she told me that the fleas don't die until they hop onto the cat and have a nibble.  And I do know that they can live in the carpet for around 3 months.  I try and vac every other day - emptying the container outside and I use the carpet spray at least once a year - I think it must be due about now with the warmer weather coming.  I have used flea powder before and then combed the dead ones out with a flea comb - I think Beaphr do one suitable for that.  Hope the vet can help, it must be such a nuisance for you both.
