This vacuum has a great filtration system. It uses both HEPA filtering and washable filters. The HEPA filter needs to be changed once every 2 years. It can’t be washed; it should only be tapped clean.
The rinsable primary filter is located at the top of the dirt cup, and can easily be reached and washed. However, you should make sure it is completely dry before usage. The producer recommends you to leave it outside for at least 24h.
This vacuum cleaner has a great usability accomplished by the congruence of several systems. The D-Shaped handle allows you to easily maneuver the device. You can move around it freely, thanks to an 8 inches stretch hose.
Using the foot activated pedal release, you can change the working angle, thus improving your comfort. You can adjust the height of the brush roll by choosing among 5 predefined values, for cleaning different surfaces, from bare floors to thick rugs.
What we liked
- It has a powerful suction. Picks up so much hidden dirt in your thick carpet.
- For how much power it has, it is actually very quiet – quieter than our old 10-amp vacuum.
- Turns on a dime and gets into nooks and crannies really well – we don’t have to use the hand tools on every single wall edge.
- The attachment with moving brushes cleans stares amazingly well.
- No filters or bags to buy.
- The cord is very long and it retracts into the vacuum. Wow. Most people find wrapping up long cords so annoying. Having this cord self-retract is actually kind of fun you can love it.
- The color is trendy.
- It is fairly lightweight- easy to carry up and down stairs.
- You can adjust the height for different carpet lengths. We know that this isn’t a groundbreaking feature, but not all vacuums have it and it makes a big difference.
What we didn’t like
- As much as it is comparatively lightweight, some people might find it a little heavy.
- The chord winds up super forcefully, and can whip your leg.
- The button to empty the canister is very easily pushed, and the canister has opened up and spilled onto the floor as you carry it to the garbage.
Finding the right vacuum cleaner is never easy, but the Hoover Vacuum Cleaner (UH70120) comes handy for home/office cleaning needs.
