There are three things I can reeaaaally geek out about.
- National parks
- Vintage furniture
- Household and DIY tools
As chance would have it, the vacuum I got as a wedding shower gift eight years ago hasn’t been working so well for me lately. Several bells and whistles have broken and the suction is…ehhhhhhh… So I was perhaps extra enthusiastic about taking the new Hoover Air Cordless Series 3.0 Bagless Upright Vacuum for a spin around my house and put it to the test while working on a piano bench reupholstery job for a friend.
But here’s my second geek-out moment. While I was recovering the bench I realized that the bottoms of the legs had little brass feet, but they were so tarnished they looked the same color as the wood. A little bit of brass polish and some elbow grease and they were positively gleaming.
These are the kinds of little details that I love so much about vintage furniture. Reupholstered, of course.
Just look at the before and after. Those feet. I die.
But back to the mess of actually doing the work. I worked on the piano bench in an empty space in my family room and was left with a floor full of threads, wood bits, staples, and vaguely rusty upholstery tacks. Definitely don’t want to step on those.
The Hoover Air Cordless is, as evidenced by the name, cordless. No cords. Not one. It comes with two rechargeable LithiumLife™ batteries that provide an average of 50 minutes of fade-free power, meaning the power of the vacuum doesn’t dwindle as the battery wears down. I popped one of the batteries on the vacuum and turned it on.
I can’t say I expected it not to work like it was supposed to, but it picked up every speck on the floor just effortlessly. Despite its petite size and weight (9.9 pounds) it really works like any big, heavy vacuum I’ve ever tried, and even better. It steers like a dream, won’t lose suction, and have I mentioned it’s cordless? Can you tell I love that feature?
No more tripping over cords, no more pulling the cord out of the wall while you’re vacuuming, no more searching for a plug when you’re cleaning the stairs. They’re small conveniences but they’re big conveniences too. I feel like my vacuuming life has just been immensely improved for the better.
I also took the vacuum for a spin on the carpet and experienced the same performance, in fact, I was sort of appalled at how much dirt, dust, and debris I could see in the canister. Despite it’s light weight, this vacuum is no…lightweight.
Can you tell I’m smitten?
You guys…it gets better…
