It’s day 4 of my Birthday Week Celebration and today is my Birthday! I’ve saved the best giveaway for today and I hope you enjoy it.
I never knew I could love a vacuum the way I love the Hoover Platinum Collection™ Cyclonic Bagless Upright, but I do.
When we were married 8 years ago we bought a vacuum with some gift cards we received from Macy’s (I think it was Macy’s, maybe Filene’s.. anyway) and I had NO IDEA what made a vacuum a good vacuum so we bought one for about $100. I figured it must be good, it cost $100 (like I said I had no idea about buying a vacuum). We lived in an apartment at the time and the rugs were so thin, our $100 vacuum worked fine, as a matter of fact it was perfect.
Then we bought a house and eventually had nice carpets installed and I realized my vacuum wasn’t really as good as I thought it was, but it worked for the time being. A new vacuum wasn’t really on our list of priorities.
After having children I realized more and more the importance of having a decent vacuum so I began my search. I found that $100 really isn’t going to buy me a decent vacuum, the ones I wanted were a lot more than that. Mine wasn’t working at all anymore so on Black Friday I bought a $29 vacuum at Walmart that worked so much better than my old vacuum and I knew it would do until I could save up to get the one I wanted.
Fast forward to last month when I was contacted by a Hoover representative who asked me if I’d like to review a Hoover Platinum Collection™ Cyclonic Bagless Upright, can you imagine my excitement, I desperately needed a new vacuum and what better than a Hoover Platinum Collection™.
I waited by the door for my new toy and the day it arrived I was giddy with excitement. I still couldn’t believe I was getting a Hoover vacuum to review. My husband was heading out for an overnight business trip and I couldn’t wait until he returned to use it so I pulled it out of the box and to my surprise, I was able to assemble it all by myself. Within a few minutes it was up and running.
Here is what I loved about the Hoover Platinum Collection™ Cyclonic Bagless Upright:
- It has a long cord, a really long cord. I was able to plug it in and vacuum the entire length of my house. That was a nice time saver.
- It has a super Windtunnel Technology™ feature that picks up so much and doesn’t push the dirt around, even on my hardwood floors.
- It has an Embedded Dirt Finder (EDF) which tells you when your rug is still Dirty and then Clean with a detection light. As much as I hate to admit how many times the “Dirty” light came on the first time I used it, I’m excited to know that now it will come on less and less each time I vacuum.
- It’s easy to push, almost like it doesn’t even need me to push!
- You can clean the filter, rather than having to replace it and spend more money. And there is a dial you can set when you clean it and it will tell you when you should clean it again.
- It’s super easy to empty and with it being bagless, no added expense of bags.
- The power button is right on top and directly below it you can push another button to adjust the height according to how thick your rug is, or if you are going onto bare floor.
The only thing I found I wasn’t happy with was it’s heavy!!! Not to push, but to pick up. Getting it up and down my stairs won’t be to easy, but as my husband explained to me, having the Windtunnel Technology™ feature makes it heavier, so I accept it and decided he can just carry it up and down for me.
Here are some facts about the Hoover Platinum Collection™ Cyclonic Bagless Upright:
::: The Hoover Platinum Collection Cyclonic Bagless Upright removes more dirt from carpet than other cyclonic bagless vacuums. The Multi-Cyclonic Filtration System delivers no loss of suction and is engineered to drop filter-clogging dirt out of the airstream, so that the filter stays clean longer.
::: Filter made with HEPA media. HEPA media traps 99.97% of dirt, dust and pollen down to 0.3 microns – a great feature that improves indoor air quality during vacuuming than traditional filter media.
::: Patented WindTunnel™ Technology – Three paths of suction surround the brushroll to reduce scatter and improve cleaning performance.
