Hoover – WindTunnel MAX Multi-Cyclonic Vacuum – Closed

As you know, I am a Hoover insider!  And I have had the opportunity to test out a few of the most recent Hoover product to hit the market.

A few month back I received the MaxExtract carpet cleaner.  Much like the FloorMate I had the opportunity to review last year, the MaxExtract only cleans with clean water.  There are 2 separate buckets in the system, one spits out clean water and solution while the other sucks up the dirty water left behind after the bristles thoroughly clean the carpet.

I wish I did’t have carpets in my house, but we do and there is no doubt after living in our home for nearly 5 years we needed to clean the carpets.  In particular, the stairs were in desperate need, as this is the area that gets the most dirt trekked on it.  The MaxExtract has a special handle just for cleaning stairs, so it was very easy and quick to suck up all the grime and dirt squished into the carpets (it even has a mini brush).  Although I’m not proud to say, the water was nearly black when the stairs were done being cleaned, I am however happy to have the grime gone.

The sucker has lots of power and it leaves very little water behind.  In fact the stairs seemed nearly dry once done cleaning.  I took my time moving the wand slowly and I found it worked much better at picking up the water and the stairs were much drier.

But the real test in my house is a carpet stain we acquired with the purchase of our home.  In my daughter’s bedroom, there is a large black ring we only saw on the day we moved in.  The circle stain was nicely covered by a bench by the previous owners.  I figured, this would be a true test to see how well the MaxExtract would work.  I stuck the MaxExtract on the stain and now, the stain that elbow grease alone could not get rid of, is nearly just a memory and a reminder of the things not to do when trying sell a house that will disappoint the new purchasers.

Although a little large for storage, if clean rugs and carpet are important to you, you will love the MaxExtract results!

We also received a Hoover WindTunnel MAX Multi-Cyclonic vacuum cleaner.  This is like a tornado that picks up everything in it’s way.  We have a 3 level house, and had only 1 vacuum cleaner.  Although it isn’t large, we didn’t take too much initiative to lug the vacuum around the house.  We took it around as needed but it was more or less when it was necessary rather than scheduling a vacuuming every Saturday morning.

Now with the Hoover Windtunnel MAX Multi-Cyclonic we have a vacuum upstairs full-time and it means our 2nd level gets vacuumed way more often!  And it has also brought to my attention how we probably should have been trying to vacuum much more frequently.

The Hoover WindTunnel is a bagless vacuum that seems to have sucked up the most minuscule dust particles known to man shoved in our carpets – I know, not a pretty picture, but it’s a really true!  The dirt sucked up from these rooms is nearly embarrassing.  I had to admit, I shed more than our dog (in my defense, we have a non-shedding Toy poodle). Much of the dust was from my hair stuck in the corner of the rooms and under the bed, but my goodness with the amount of hair pulled up, I expect I should be bald.

There are different levels of height that you can put the Hoover Windtunnel, depending on the thickess/height of carpet you are cleaning, there is also the option to put it on “carpetless”.  In today’s homes flooring goes from carpet to hardwood to laminate to tile within just a few rooms, so it is very beneficial to have 1 unit that can suck up dust and crayons (you never know), all in one shot.

It’s simple to dispose of all the nasties your new best friend exposed!  Just remove the container,with a click, twist off the top, dump and then put it back in and you are ready to continue on your journey.  Since it’s bagless, you are not left with tiny dust particles flying about while taking off a bag and there’s no need to struggle while putting on a new bag.  It’s easy and “clean”. (oh, a clean vacuum, imagine!)

Along with the sucking power there are a few extra special features.  I am particularly pleased with is the 28′ automatic cord rewind.  I’m sure you all share my pain of having to wrap up the vacuum cord once you are finished using it, and it probably looks like a small cobweb. The next time you go to use the vacuum you are left untangling which takes longer than the vacuuming chore you were suppose to perform in the first place.  Well, finally the MAX Multi-Cyclonicl is an upright vacuum with a retractable cord!  This small addition is a life sanity saver.  You will also find it’s easy for the cord to stretch between rooms and even stairs, 28′ is a lot of cord.  So there will be less plugging and unplugging as you go from room to room.

Yes, Hoover certainly has some great cleaning products, but I also want to talk about the customer service I experienced with Hoover.  Last year I had the opportunity to test out the FloorMate.  We used this regularly in the kitchen, hallways and everywhere else in the house without carpets.  After 8 months of continuously using the FloorMate it gave out on us.  I contacted the PR company who put me on to customer service and within a week they replaced it for me!   There was a brand new FloorMate waiting at my door.

I have been very pleased with both the products and customer service at Hoover.  Perhaps a little disappointed to see how dirty my house is, but am glad there are products out there  stronger than what simple elbow grease alone can do.

  15. My living room – it has a 60 year old carpet and it is just gross 🙁 Wish we could replace it but that costs $$ so vacuuming is all I can do for now.

  16. Our living room could really use this! Our carpets could definitely use a really good once-over. Thanks so much!

  17. My living room needs it more than any thing. It’s cream carpet and with the kids and dogs I want to keep it clean as I can. I see no reason to replace it until the kids are a little older, so any help I can get from Hoover would be wonderful. 😉

  18. My family room needs to be cleaned the most. Four kids one of which walks around with a sippy cup he tosses filled with milk whenever he feels the urge.

  19. Definitely our tv room. It gets the most traffic and has the girls’ toys everywhere not to mention cookie crumbs

  20. I would say my family room since that is where we are mostly,along with the dog and three cats.

  21. Right now my living room needs the most cleaning. I just moved, and had to track everything through that room. Everyone wore their shoes when moving stuff in, so it’s looking a bit scruffy right now.

  22. Mostly the basement but the kitcken is running a close second with everyone in and out, drives me crazy!

  23. Our family room – off white carpet and two black pets, so it needs vacuuming frequently.

  24. My finished basement needs the most cleaning! It desperately needs a good vacuuming with all the cat hair on the black carpet. It is insane.

  33. Definitely my basement, we had a flood with 30″ of water so it’s a mess, and the rest of the house is getting neglected too!

  34. My bedroom seems to be the worst in the house. I take care of everyone elses space but my own.

  35. The carpet in my living room needs cleaning the most. I also have several area rugs that I would like to clean myself rather than send them out for cleaning.


  36. I living room needs the most cleaning. With a kids, two cats and it being the room we spend most of our time it can get pretty messy

  40. Our family room needs to be cleaned constantly…between the dog hair, kids’ food crumbs, etc…it could get to be such a mess!

  41. Definately our “crafts and scrapbooking room”. We paint, play, and create in this room, making it easily the messiest room in the house!

  42. Our room actually is pretty dirty. My cat has a habit of leaving his fur everywhere and we get a lot of dirt and dust living in a rural area.

  43. I seriously need one of these! I have three dogs and a baby on the way! The dogs run in and out constantly. In my landing and up my steps is the worst area! I could wear that baby out! lol

  44. I would say that all of our carpeting will be needing a thourough cleaning seeing as I have a 11mth old who has been drooling, spilling, and throwing up all over it for months! Thanks!

  45. it’s a toss up between my kitchen (it collects everything) and my living room. this room is where we all gather to discuss our day

  46. Our house is tiny so if one room looks messy the whole house does. I think the living room is the toughest to keep clean as thats where we hang out the most nupa123atgmaildotcom

  47. I have two dogs and two teenagers and one just starting school, so my entire house it the messiest lol

  48. My bedroom needs it most. All the animals congregate there for bedtime! What a furry mess 🙂
