I’m not going to lie, I hate housework. OK, that’s not quite true. I love having a clean house, it’s just finding the time to do it. If I won the lottery, I would have a team of cleaners to keep my home super spotless. But alas, right now I have to do it myself. Anything that can make the job easier I’m totally here for that. Especially as we’ve gone from a two bedroom flat to a 4 bedroom! We also had a new sofa delivered the other day which meant dealing with the mountain of mess and dust that had accumulated underneath the old one. So when I was asked to review the Hoover Vortex Pets WR71VX04 Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner from the lovely people over at AO.com – I wasn’t going to say no!
The Hoover Vortex has a few key features which really appeal to me. Here they are-
Super Quick Bagless Cleaning
I couldn’t imagine having a hoover that I had to buy bags for. It seems like so much effort, a silly expense and isn’t very environmentally friendly. So this is a must. The Hoover Vortex is so easy to empty, literally, it’s one click and the bin is out. I’m so pleased about this because I kind of love hovering but hate having to empty the bin but this is no problem at all.
Lightweight & Above-Floor Cleaning
Like I said before, I’m totally here for anything that makes cleaning quicker and easier. The Hoover Vortex Pets WR71VX04 is so light. Even when it was in its box I could take it off the delivery guy without so much as a blink of an eye. This makes it great for hovering the stairs!
It also comes with attachments that help you clean things above the floor. So a little attachment lives on the side of the hoover and can be used for things like curtains and sofas. It also has a turbo tool for removing embedded pet hair in carpets. Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t have any pet but still use this function because of my own hair! It’s amazing what this little turbo boost can pick up!
Edge to Edge Cleaning
This hoover is fab at edge-to-edge cleaning. In other words, the hoover reaches right up to the wall and collects all the dirt. You don’t have this outside line of dust or dirt where it’s just pushed it to the outside of the room! The hoovers power cord is a little short but that’s not really a problem because it’s so lightweight. You kind of zoom it around the room super quick and don’t even feel like you’ve pushed anything. So it’s no hardship having to plug it into another room.
It’s a really great hoover at an affordable price, especially when you look at some of the prices on the market these days!
