I have a love-hate relationship with vacuuming. While I’ve always been strangely obsessed with the vacuum marks left behind on freshly clean carpet, the process of lugging out the heavy vacuum is a great enough deterrent to push the chore out to my monthly (instead of weekly) list. Honestly, it isn’t even so much the vacuuming bit as it is the unwinding and re-winding of the cord before and after. I HATE that part. It’s just like neatly piling up garden hose after you use it – who likes to do that?!?
And this is where my love affair with the Hoover Air Cordless begins. While I own a couple cordless stick vacs, the beauty about the Hoover Air Cordless is that it is a full-size cyclonic vacuum that can clean the whole home up to 2500 square feet (thats 50 minutes of run time!) thanks to the TWO included LithiumLife batteries.
So while I’m vacuuming with one battery, the other is charging. I love that I can see just how much charge I have left with a simple glance thanks to the battery level indicator too!
My home is nowhere near that size, but it really doesn’t matter. You just don’t know how convenient it is to no longer plug and unplug with each room until you go cordless. It’s also great to not have to switch products as I move from room to room as the Hoover Air Cordless cleans both carpets and hard wood floors. It even does a fantastic job on my really long shag rug! It’s design is classically simple. On carpet? Turn on the brushes. On hardwood? Just use straight suction.
Need to get into those crevices? Pull off the hose and attach the 2 in 1 cleaning wand – which happens to be my only complaint on this product.
When using the cleaning wand, I noticed suction was not impressive and the hose is restricted by design, resulting in quite a few tip overs and not being able to reach high areas. But the convenience and ease of use to clean the floors of my entire home far outweigh this small annoyance.
The Hoover Air Cordless still remains really light at only 9.9 lbs and easily maneuvers around furniture, corners and by passes curious kittens with a simple twist of the handle. Neither does it sacrifice capacity with an 11inch cleaning path and a high capacity 1.05 liter dirt cup, allowing me to empty it less frequently.
Plus, the bottom-release dirt cup allows it to be emptied without getting dust and dirt on your hands or clothing. It’s also worth noting that the filter is reusable (less waste in our landfills!) and rinsable for long lasting cleaning power.To wrap it all up, the Hoover Air Cordless comes backed with a a 5-year limited warranty and is available at Walmart.
