Hoover REACT Cordless Stick Vacuum

A thorough vaccumn was done just hours ago – yet there they are. Tiny bits of string, crumbs, and unknown bits visible here and there on the floor. It never fails, they seem to be everywhere and come out of nowhere. For those pieces scattered all over, what are you going to do? Haul out the big vaccumn and do it all again? Crawl on the floor and manually pick up said stragglers? Well you could, but there’s a better way.

For this reason and many others, I love cordless handheld vaccumns. For full disclosure, I do have a ‘regular’ vacuumn and use it once or twice a week to deep clean every inch of the home. Yet for that quick clean before company to the tiny messes that happen far too often – I use a cordless handheld on a daily basis. Ok, more like a couple times a day.

I’m often asked by those who don’t have one, “but do you really use it?“, so to reiterate: answer is a YES! To go further, if tomorrow I didn’t have one, I would head to the store immediately. A stick-vac has proven itself to be a handy and convenient cleaning tool which makes my chaos more manageable.

So now that we’ve determined the need, the next question is, “Which one should I get?”

Hoover recently sent me their new Hoover REACT Cordless Stick Vacuum, and I have to say – these features are pretty impressive. You see, I have both carpet and tile in my home and so many machines out there seem to be dedicated to type of floor. I, along with most people, would need something that works on all types of floors.

This is where the REACT comes in my friends.

Coined the vacuum with instincts, the Hoover REACT™ range introduces a new platform focused on technology and design. Hoover’s REACT vacuums which were released this fall season, feature FloorSense™ technology, which instinctively sense a change in floor type, and automatically adjusts brush-roll and speed to optimize cleaning from hard floors to carpet, and back again. This makes getting those cereal crumbs in the kitchen, to the ones tracked onto nearby carpet by the dog – easy peasy.

The Hoover REACT Cordless Stick Vacuum has a visual display to engage this FloorSense Mode, and when turned on, it automatically adjusts to floor type. Turn this mode off and the brush roll will turn off, allowing suction only. When no display is visible, the nozzle will be optimized to be used on carpet {roller brushes on}. Now, carpet is obvious, I want the roller brushes on. Yet, I having tile as well {and this is the great part}, I have the option of just suctioning my tile floor – or I could leave the brushes on, just in case some stuck on gunk needs that extra push towards the exit.

Since I am a fan-girl of stick-vac’s, I might know a thing or two about other brands, and my biggest complaint would have to be their battery. Not only short-lasting, there was no way to know whether it was charged or not, except to grab to use – and find out it’s dead or 5 second in the clean – it stops. I can’t even count how many times this has happened. This is why I appreciate that the Hoover REACT Cordless Stick Vacuum has a PWR Lithium Battery with rapid charge. It delivers 3X longer run time and fade free power, to give a versatile whole home clean {yes – whole home. Great news for those that solely use a stick-vac}.

Plus, and this is the part I think I love most, the display has a battery indicator taking that unwanted surprise out of the equation. As well, the battery charger is an entirely separate piece, so I don’t need to store the stick-vac near an outlet which are usually out in the open. Most of us prefer to hide our cleaning machines, and you can do so with this one, even when charging.

Of course this fine machine also features Hoover’s WindTunnel Surge™ technology for unparalleled power and thorough cleaning, which means that it was designed to capture dirt, dust and pet hair. The focus on pets is priority with me, since we have both a cat and a dog. And of course I appreciate the bagless feature with the easy-to-dump dust bin.

As I said, this is a stick-vac with instinct, and sensing type of floor isn’t the only smart thing it does. The Hoover® REACT Cordless line is compatible with the Hoover Home App, which allows you to customize your cleaning experience and maintain your cordless vacuum for optimal performance. The app allows you to register your products, customize FloorSense settings, set filter maintenance reminders and have instructions and tips right at your fingertips.

Included tools with the Hoover REACT Cordless Stick Vacuum is a crevice Tool and dusting brush – which I also use often. The crevice tool is great for running along baseboards and getting into those hard-to-reach places like between the cabinets and fridge. The dusting brush is perfect for ledges to stairs. Paired with the reach wand tool, and this stick-vac can be used up high, because unfortunately dust and unwanted bits don’t have a preference to the floors only.

Also included is a wall mount, so you can hang the stick-vac to the wall. This I don’t currently use, simply because I haven’t found a clever permanent home for it as yet. Perhaps some winter cleaning and reorganizing is on order, so I can find that perfect home for it.

Cleaning truly is a never-ending job, yet we tackle the chaos the best we can – and that’s with the right tools to make the tasks quick, thorough and convenient. That being said, the Hoover REACT Cordless Stick Vacuum has proven to align very nicely with that mission.
