Hoover The Company and Their Offer
The Hoover company was founded more than 110 years ago by William Henry Hoover in Ohio, USA. In the 20th century, it was so popular that the name of Hoover was actually synonymous with vacuum cleaners in the United Kingdom.
Also, Hoover was a member of the Whirlpool Corporation. Just as a mention, you should also know that, this brand also produced washing machines and tumble dryers that were very well received by the public.
Today they returned to what they know best – vacuum cleaners and this is exactly what I am going to present today.
The Hoover OnePWR System
Before moving forward and presenting the vacuum cleaner types that Hoover has to offer, I want to present one of their patented technology.
Their HOOVER® ONEPWR™ System represents a group of 9 easy to use, cordless, high-performance cleaning products.
What makes them similar is the fact that they all have the same amazing Lithium-Ion battery. With this technology, Hoover took the cord-free cleaning at a new level.
Every Hoover ONEPWR battery is compatible with all the products of this series.
For creating them, Hoober used the most advanced Lithium-Ion technology. This means that the ONEPWR batteries can give you a fade-free power and therefore runtime you might need to finish any cleaning job, anywhere in the house.
To understand more about this very advanced technology, I recommend you watch the following presentation that Hoover made for one of their ONEPWR products:
Hoover Vacuum Cleaners Types
Hoover offers any kind of vacuum cleaner that you can dream of and probably even more. But let’s take each type separately for a short presentation. This way, you will be sure that no misunderstandings occur.
Canister Vacuum Cleaners
Just as all canister models, the Hoover vacuum cleaners also have their bags/dirt cups along with their motors located in the main body, while the head is attached to it with the help of a long, bendable tube.
They are great ways to clean stairs, corners and also underneath your furniture without any other extra tool. They usually are lightweight and with the help of a handle, they can be easily transported from a part of the house to the next one.
Upright Vacuum Cleaners
As you can imagine, Hoover’s upright vacuums are also made from one-piece that has the head at the bottom, while the motor and bag/dirt cup are in the body. This model finishes with a handle at the top.
Some of the models from the Hoover portfolio have motorized or rolling brushes. This makes them great for cleaning carpets and then make a smooth transition to hard floor types.
Smart Vacuum Cleaners
Even though Hoover is not very known when talking about robots, it does produce one model. It is called Rogue and has great sensors that will map and clean your floors without any help from your side.
It can be controlled using its Hoover Home App. Also, it’s compatible with both Google Home Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
Handheld & Stick
These vacuum cleaners are very easy to use, lightweight and most of them are cordless. Actually, Hoover offers very powerful handheld and stick vacuum cleaners that are great to have around the house for urgent cleaning or reaching corners that you usually miss.
Wet Vacuum Cleaners
Hoover offers some amazing wet vacuum cleaner models that will help you wash your carpets and your hard floors. They are easy to use and some of them even are specialized in combating old stains or pet dirt.
Hoover’s Cleaning Solutions
Hoover not only has some of the best wet vacuum cleaners on the market but it also recommends its own cleaning solutions that can be used for their better function.
Even though there are many universal detergents, Hoover also offers some specialized shampoos for your carpets.
They are made using a Stainguard Technology that will help the carpets to stay cleaner for a longer period of time and also will help to prevent any future stains.
They clean using enzymatic ingredients that take on the pet specks of dirt and at the same time, it provides the carpet a very clean and fresh smell.
As an example, their “Paws & Claws Carpet Cleaning Solution” will continue to work in the depth of the carpet even after you finish the actual washing.
As you could probably imagine, since Hoover offers special carpets cleaning solutions, they also offer detergents that are meant to clean your hardwood floors.
They are designed to remove any sticky mess or everyday grime. They even will remove your friend’s paws from the floor.
When you will finish washing your floors with one of the solutions Hoover recommends, you will have a clean, smooth and very nice smelling hardwood floor.
Parts and Accessories
Regardless of what kind of vacuum cleaner you but, you will need to purchase some accessories for it too.
This is why Hoover made a list of any kind of accessory you might need and they offer branded, high-quality ones that your vacuum cleaner might need.
If you will look into their offer, you will find bags, filters, belts, tools, attachments and even replacement parts.
This probably goes without saying, but I recommend you to buy from Hoover and from scammers any replacement parts or accessory if you want your vacuum cleaner to have a long life and you a happy one using it.
Buying Guide – How to Pick a Hoover Vacuum Cleaner
Most probably, till this part of the article you have an idea of what you want from a vacuum cleaner, but let’s take each point at a time so you won’t miss any aspect that could keep you away from your dream Hoover model.
The first thing that you have to decide is the model that you want to buy and use for the next period of time. This decision should also be taken based on your needs and not just on your wants.
If you want a model that is less noisy, easy to use and lightweight, then you should most probably think about buying a canister model.
However, canister vacuum cleaners come with a more narrower cleaning path than the upright version. This means that it will take you longer for you to clean larger areas. Also, you should think about storage for this kind of vacuum cleaner. Due to the long tube and the fact that it is made from two parts, it can require more deposit space.
Upright vacuum cleaners have wider cleaning paths when compared to the canister models. This makes them great for vacuuming large spaces. Also, they can be stored more easily.
However, even though Hoover offers amazing upright vacuums, they tend to be kind of heavy and therefore, harder to transport. Also, they don’t permit too much flexibility to clean underneath the furniture or hard to reach places.
If you need a model that will do all your daily cleaning work, then, of course, you should buy the Hoover robot.
However, it doesn’t have an auto-emptying feature and since it doesn’t have a big storage capacity, you will need to clean it frequently.
Also, since it is a smart vacuum cleaner that does the job by itself, it is more expensive than the classical models.
Handheld and Stick
Handheld and sticks are amazing to have around the house. However, think of your needs. Do you want a vacuum cleaner that will do the heavy-duty work or just normal everyday cleaning after you prepared a meal or something similar?
Keep in mind that even though some of them have great suction, they still are not meant for deep cleaning.
Handheld Hoover vacuums are compact models designed for occasional spot cleaning.
Wet Vacuum Cleaner
Maybe what you need is not an actual vacuum cleaner per se. Maybe you want a model that will wash your carpet and remove possible stains from your floors.
Keep in mind that this kind of vacuum cleaner will wash your surroundings, so don’t expect it to do more than it was designed for.
Unfortunately, in the end, everything comes back to the money issue. Think about how much you want and can spend on a vacuum cleaner. With a budget in mind, it will be easier to eliminate models that are either too expensive or too low budget for you.
Commercial or Home Use
Think about what you need that vacuum cleaner for. Do you want to clean your personal house or do you have a cleaning business?
In either case, you don’t want to buy the wrong kind of model. Commercial vacuum cleaners have much more suction since they are for heavy-duty jobs and therefore they consume more energy.
There is no reason to do this at home.
Also, if you have to clean very good and very fast many office spaces in a day, you don’t want to do it with a vacuum cleaner for home use.
Do you live in a small flat that has thin walls and crazy neighbors? Or do you have a small baby that needs to sleep while you clean the house?
Then you should consider buying a model that has its decibel emission on the lower part of the scale. Check out the instruction manual for this aspect. It has to be specified.
Also, as a piece of advice, usually the most silent ones are the canister ones, but of course, there are also exceptions.
Bagged Model or a Bagless One?
People tend to either love a model or the other. There are very few of them who actually don’t care if they have to clean a filter or remove a bag.
Think about what you like. Do you prefer to wash a filter and most probably reuse it or do you prefer not to get any mess on you and just dispose of a dirtbag?
Keep in mind that the bagged models, tend to have a better suction.
Plugged-in or Cordless?
Since Hoover offers an amazing cordless experience, you should think twice before buying a vacuum cleaner. Do you want a great maneuverability or more power?
Again, after deciding on this aspect, it will be much easier to sort out some models.
