My carpets are nothing but a never ending battle, between the kids and the dogs they never stood a chance. And by purchasing a home with light beige carpeting, I was just setting myself up for failure. I’ve also learned that I typically set our vacuums up for failure as well. Between the massive amounts of pet hair and my kids small toys (and socks) that never fail to find their way into my vacuum, most of our vacuums say adiós within the first month.

When I heard Hoover had a new pet hair buster in town, I was really excited to see if it could make me love it as much as the Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ did.
Designed with the same exclusive WindTunnel 3 technology as the WindTunnel Air, the Hoover High Performance Bagless Upright Vacuum lifts and removes deep down embedded dirt with three channels of suction.
I think the first thing that stands out when you look at this vacuum are its sleek appearance with a shiny red body and chrome looking finishes. But, pretty doesn’t matter when it comes to dirt, the most important thing was would this vacuum keep up with my kids and pets.
From the box the Hoover High Performance Bagless Upright Vacuum requires minimal assembly, just insert a single screw for the handle and you’re on your way.
Arriving at the perfect time because we’ve just begun switching some of our carpeted rooms over to hardwood, this vacuum features a multi-floor brushroll on/off option allowing you to easily transition between hard floors and carpet using just your foot.
Tackle pet hair with ease with the on board pet tool pack, which helps remove even stubborn pet hair and get into those hard to reach spaces. There is also a pet "turbo tool" that cleans furniture and stairs.
What I really love however, is how easy these tools are to use. The 15' hose is pre attached to the vacuum. All you have to do is attach your tool of choice to the hose (pet tool, expansion wand or crevice tool) and turn the knob from floor to hose!
I can't tell you how much of a time saver this is for a busy Mom?! It's such a pain to have to hook and unhook hoses just to suck up that wad of pet hair in the corner or those crumbs from under the couch. And, yes, we have crumbs under the couch... doesn't everyone??
Hoovers High Performance Bagless Upright also features a rinsible, reusable filter as well as a carbon and HEPA media filter, trapping 99.97 percent of dirt, dust and pollens down to 0.3 microns. A must when trying to manage my kids easily irritated allergies.
Debris is trapped in a convenient bottom release cup, making emptying a cinch.
While this vacuum was bigger and bulkier than my previous vacuum, it still packed that punch I was in need of, and has so far been able to maintain optimal suction through all our tough cleanups. If you're looking for a tough vacuum with appeal that can get the job done the Hoover High Performance Bagless Upright Vacuum might be for you. I will note though if your home has multiple levels you vacuum on a regular bases you might want to opt for the Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ instead.
