We realized last month that Fun Son had no vacuum cleaner. What? He’d been in his new apartment for nearly three months. My parents and I had visited him the week before, and the carpet didn’t look dirty at all! How was he keeping it clean?
I imagined him on hands and knees, picking up random leaves, threads, or whatever small pieces of debris had landed before we arrived. Besides all his carpet-picking, he cooked us a delicious steak dinner!
Before my next visit, I ordered from Amazon* another Hoover WindTunnel Air Upright Vacuum UH72400* – the same as my machine I shared with you over two years ago (I Love My New Hoover Air!). And, a bonus, the price has decreased dramatically! Of course I wanted to share this great deal with you.
I should mention that if you use a link in this post to order the vacuum, I’ll receive a commission since I’m an Amazon Associate. (See my disclosure.)
I also wrote another report on this machine later – about whether it was a lasting love – here.
Fun Son was thrilled to get a brand new machine. We’d supplied one for the apartment he shared with his sister, but he had to leave it with her when he moved.
I’m happy to report that I still love my machine after two and a half years of use.
I thought I’d take this opportunity to share some features that I didn’t necessarily mention in my initial review. Quite frankly, Fun Son showed me a feature I hadn’t discovered yet.
See this handy tool attached to the side?
I use it often to reach into tight spaces when attached to the wand. I hadn’t realized this brush end had an extra feature I didn’t know about.
When you press this button and pull downward, the brush slides away from the tip. I’d been removing the brush, having to remember where I put it and re-attach it later. No more need for that now. Sweet!
I enjoy the extra-long hose, which pulls apart to stretch a far distance. It retracts back into place very well, too.
The cord is longer than any vacuum I’ve ever had. I can vacuum several rooms without relocating the plug.
If your vacuum has a shorter cord, you’ll definitely enjoy the longer cord on this one!
Another plus for me personally is that I no longer sneeze for two days after running the vacuum. That was a problem with vacuum cleaners without a filter in the past.
If I had to replace my vacuum today, I’d buy this exact model again, hands-down – and it’s such a bargain at the recent price reduction! Can you tell I’m still completely sold on this vacuum? Both a friend and a family member bought this vacuum after my initial review. There may be others, as well. Can any of you who have this machine comment on how well you enjoy it?
