We are definitely back into routine now that the first month of school is behind us. I’m back to my regular routine at home, and that includes getting the house back to normal after a busy summer. Clothing needs to be switched out (I love opening a box of fall sweaters), decor is changed (bring me all the pumpkins) and cleaning tasks are much easier without little feet around during the week.
Being a Hoover ambassador the past few years means I get the opportunity to try an array of Hoover products in our household. Recently, we were sent several products from the Hoover ONEPWR product line – products useful in the house, yard, and vehicle that are all cordless and all powered by an interchangable, rechargable, battery. In fact, the batteries themselves have become such a part of our household cleaning routine that my husband helpfully put up a shelf on our garage wall to store them, so they’re easily accessible and easy to switch out when needed.
Our main floor is all hardwood, with the exception of a throw rug in the living room. With 5 family members plus a labradoodle, our floors need a quick sweep or vacuum clean up daily – it’s clear when a day or two has been missed so I try not to let that happen.
I need a cordless vacuum that is easy to maneuver, always charged and ready to go, powerful, and one that actually does the job of sucking up everything in its path rather than just whir and make a bunch of noise while minimally working and leaving me frustrated and reaching for a broom and dustpan instead (it’s happened before!)
The Hoover ONEPWR Blade+ Cordless Vacuum meets this criteria. On first blush, the vaccum itself is heavier than others I’ve used recently. It’s not that it’s heavy or bulky to use, per se, but it’s not a lightweight and feels like it’s capable of doing a thorough cleaning job.
The handle has easy to reach fingertip controls for switching to carpet mode, engaging the brush head into action, as well is the ECO mode which will give you a longer battery life. With its Dual Cyclonic DustVault™ Technology, it can capture 99.% of dirt and dust with no loss of suction.
A quick removal of the middle component (AH! Reach Wand! I had no idea what it was called and now we know) and re-attachment made moving from my hardwood entry-way to the carpeted stairway a breeze and took less than a minute to switch. I like the hand-held option for my stairs and the battery powered through with ease. I wouldn’t recommend the Hoover ONEPWR Blade+ for fully carpeted rooms as I didn’t get the same amount of deep-carpet-clean that I would with a full-size vacuum (the brush roll, on the Carpet setting, kept stopping on me on the carpet in my hallway) but it worked fine on the stairs which is what I was hoping for.
Other tools you can switch out instead of the brush head include a dusting brush and crevice tool and upholstery tool.
Oh! I also really liked the DustTracker™ LED Headlights (noted in the photo above) especially for vacuuming in dimly lit areas like along baseboards, under the kitchen island, and behind the pedestal sink in my bathroom. No hidden dust bunnies anymore!
Overall, I liked this new addition to our Hoover ONEPWR Cordless product collection, and it has replaced it’s predecessor on my garage wall. I find it perfect for main-floor cleaning, and I like knowing that I will always have a battery charged and ready, thanks to the easy ONEPWR™ 3.0 Ah Lithium-Ion Battery and Battery Charger system. Often times I’ll leave the cordless vacuum propped in a corner, and now I know if I grab it a day or two later, even if the battery is nearly drained, another one is charging and ready to go. There’s no stopping my cleaning now. OK, Netflix stops it occasionally BUT OTHERWISE watch me go!
