How to make furniture moving easy when cleaning floors.

Ever struggle to move sofas, chairs, tables, etc., just to do simple floor cleaning? Well, there is a simple and cheap way to do it! Here's a tip: Many dollar discount stores sell packs of (8) Teflon pads with a durable foam insert inside for the furniture to rest on, between your hardwood, carpeted and other types of floors, for as little as $1.00-$2.00 per (8) pack. I've found these to be a real back saver when it comes time to move stuff for regular floor cleaning. The pads slide very easily, don't mar surfaces or tear carpets. Even heavy items can be pushed with just one hand. The pads are about 3"-4" in diameter and spread the weight of the object supported very well, avoiding pressure points that can imprint on the floor underneath. I've bought many of these, and my wife and I love them. It just makes mundane chores that much quicker to finish with no extra exertion on your back or body. Give'em a try, they're worth the very small amount of money compared to the exertion you'd spend otherwise.

where do I mount the power supply

Cheryl, Place it behind chair if not a trip hazard, if that location not good, see if clearances are good enough to put it under the love seat. Remember to clean (vacuum) power pack monthly to prevent premature failure do to over heating.

What are the advantages of plastic high chairs?

Some people don't like the way that plastic high chairs look but i've noticed that these days you can buy high chairs in every color under the sun and with bright or subtle patterns.
Cleaning plastic high chairs is so much easier than wooden ones as you can spray them and scrub away without worrying about damaging the wood itself.
Plastic high chairs also often have more adjustable options on the chair than wooden ones.

Your instructions do not say how to get the sweeper to move so that you can sweep under the sofa.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. there are not too many sweeper that actually get under the sofa when most sofas go almost to the floor and some uprights go flat and some sweepers but if the height of the sweeper or vacuum exceed the height of the sofa underneath then either one or the other cannot clean under the sofa if the height exceeds the sofa height limit without leaning your sofa back or lifting it up to clean.
