If you know the family behind tatorthoughts at all, & if you’ve been here for a while you do you know that our go to for large purchases or important appliances & electronics is Best Buy.
This week was no exception.
After more than 3 years In our all hardwood home with the exception of the plethora of rugs we own I was absolutely burnt out over struggling to sweep. Those with wood floors know the struggle needless to say sweeping multiple times a day was much more than a chore.
I headed into Best Buy kid free for a moment
Which rarely happens with only my husband and dreams of spotless floors in tow.
I was a mama on a mission:
Obtain the thing that would decrease my ever growing daily to do list by at least 3!
I thought I wanted a bissell to match my hand held pet pro that I’ve loved since I got it only to discover something that better fit our needs & to my surprise at a better price!
This delightful creation being The Hoover WindTunnel 2 Whole House Rewind with Allergen Block
I opened it as soon as the box touched our living room rug
-It was well packaged and in several pieces.
-Smelt very strongly of new plastic and rubber which I didn’t mind because I’m one of the few who enjoy that smell (comparable to the smell of new tires.)
-packaging was informative and attractive on all sides which was a plus for me as someone who values marketing and aesthetic graphics on product packaging.
-even with my physical limitations and dexterity challenges it took me less than 6 minutes to assemble everything by myself.
I used it for the first time that same day and was both delighted and oddly disgusted over how well it worked on what I thought to be clean floors.
The cord has an incredible reach, and the fact that it is tangle free and retractable living within the machine is a major plus for us. It’s a Super convenient feature!
I didn’t find the vacuum to be too bulky or heavy like reviews of others have stated and
I wasn’t too bothered by the noise level although it was louder than I initially expected, both my toddler and preschooler slept through it completely unbothered.
I like that I can change suction and performance type by using a dial and go from rugs to hardwood seamlessly.
It comes with multiple attachments that work well for their intended purpose and there’s no loss of suction with use.
It’s easy to empty the contents and allergen filter Maintainance is simple.
All in all for a $180 purchase I’m extremely satisfied.
It won’t replace my desire to mop daily with my O-Cedar ProMist MAX Microfiber Spray Mop, but that’s simply by personal preference and the fact that I have small children who spend more time than most in our floors.
Tatorthoughts is now a proud addition to Hoover nation and the Hoover whole house rewind family!
