Can you hear that?
A heavenly chorus of angels just starting singing to me. To you. To everyone.
Cordless what, you ask?
Absorb those two beautiful words into your brain.
My house is 2,400 s.f. on two levels. It is an open floor plan but has lots of twists and turns because of walls and furniture location. Vacuuming with a traditional corded vacuum is at best, difficult. Honestly I’d rather just deal with dirty floors most days. Because our house is long and skinny, I am constantly having to plug the cord into a new outlet to be able to reach everything.
And I am obsessed with having clean floors. The house could be spotless otherwise. If it needs to be vacuumed I get all twitchy. And when you have 2 dogs, the floors always need to be vacuumed. I’ve tried having my kids do the vacuuming but they vacuum a path down the center of each room and claim to be done. Which is like washing only half of your hair. It’s just weird.
Which is why I was super excited for the opportunity to try the new Hoover Air Cordless Lift Vacuum!
The Hoover Air Cordless Lift Vacuum is an upright vacuum with full deep cleaning power that also converts into a canister vacuum for portability. All without having to deal with a cord. It includes 2 extended runtime batteries and works on hard floors and carpet. The convenient removable canister makes easy work of cleaning stairs, ceilings and hard-to-reach areas.
The Hoover Air Cordless Lift Vacuum is just 1 in a line of 4 cordless floor cleaners from Hoover, all of which can use the same LithiumLife interchangeable battery. These batteries double the capacity of an 18-volt lithium Ion battery – offering longer runtime and power that doesn’t fade.
And these vacuums all come with Hoover’s Windtunnel 3 technology for great power and performance to ensure the most efficient dirt removal possible.
For me, the biggest test of this vacuum was going to be how long the batteries would last. I charged both of them (it comes with 2 rechargeable batteries) fully, didn’t vacuum my entire house for a week (which required considerable restraint) and put it to the test.
I vacuumed my living room, hallway, 2 bedrooms (my daughter’s bedroom no longer appears to actually have a floor), my kitchen/dining room, stairway and huge family room downstairs (not pictured).
I used the vacuum as needed, sometimes as an upright and sometimes as a canister.
It was super easy to convert the Hoover Air to a canister and back again almost on the fly as I worked my way through the house. I love the way the clips work on this vacuum. My old vacuum would constantly come apart at the hose ends. This one will not!
The Hoover Air Cordless Life Vacuum has amazing maneuverability. The head swivels and has a small enough profile to fit even under low things. It gets into places no other vacuum can g and the light helps make it easy to see. I love how smooth and easy it is to use.
I have to admit when I first pulled this vacuum out of the box that I wasn’t sure it would live up to the power and cleaning ability of my old vacuum because of its more petite profile.
I was wrong.
It cleaned just as well and I found that the dirt canister was super easy to empty.
It’s easy to switch from carpet to hard floor with this vacuum on the fly using the controls on the top of the vacuum.
What a refreshing relief it was using this vacuum. No more plugging in and unplugging the cord. No more having to unwind and wind a cord back up. No more tangling or tripping over a cord. It saves time and sanity!
But, as I mentioned, the true test is battery life.
So how long did the Hoover Air Cordless Lift Vacuum battery last? Could it handle almost 2,400 s.f.?
A resounding yes! I vacuumed almost every vacuumable (that’s my word, but you can use it) surface in my house on a single battery on a single charge. And it still had more juice in it. I could have taken it next door and vacuumed my neighbor’s house. I like to vacuum, but I don’t like it that much so I put the vacuum in the closet for next time.
Which will probably be tomorrow. Because I can’t go a day without spending time with my new love.
