The In-depth Review – Hoover Platinum Lightweight Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Cleaning your home has never been this easy as it will be with your new Hoover Platinum Lightweight Hoover Platinum Lightweight Bagged Upright Vacuum CleanerUpright Vacuum cleaner. Just as the name suggests, it is very light, therefore allowing for very easy movement from one place to another. The main vacuum cleaner weighs only 12 pounds. This makes it very easy to move it from the bedroom to the living room, so that already means less headache and work for you.

The vacuum cleaner has a cylinder that can be carried on your shoulders using the shoulder strap. Again, this simple yet powerful feature makes it easier for you to clean whatever needs cleaning above floor level. The cylinder will collect all the dust and dirt while you vacuum your way from one room to the next.

Unlike other brands of vacuum cleaners, this Hoover Platinum Lightweight Upright Vacuum utilizes the special wind tunnel technology which removes embedded dirt and minimizes blow-back or scatter on carpet. What this means is simply that this vacuum will remove way more dirt and dust that others, even the sneaky hidden stuff.

Now, once all the dust is collected, it is also very important that the vacuum cleaner keeps it inside. Unlike many other models this Hoover has an easy-change bag which is made with HEPA filter – this traps 99.97% of dust and pollens down to 0.3 microns. Very impressive indeed. Just imagine the fresh air in your house after cleaning;) Dust free air, not many vacuum cleaners can do that.

Of course if you clean properly and the vacuum cleaner keeps all the dirt inside then you will have a full bag at one point. Other vacuum cleaners start at this point (if not earlier) to blow out the dust and dirt through even the tiniest openings and you can actually start cleaning all over again. Not so the Hoover Platinum lightweight upright vacuum cleaner. It has a Bag Check Indicator that tells you when the bag needs to be changed. Now how’s that for a small but effective feature?

Ha, now you got us – while changing the bag the dust will have a chance to pour all over the floor again, right? Sorry, no way The feature that comes to play here is called the “Self-Sealing Bag” and eliminates dirt puffs when changing the vacuum cleaner bag . In other words, it quickly closes up while you change the bag.

The controls are also easy to use and very intuitive on this Hoover Platinum lightweight upright vacuum cleaner. The illuminated fingertip controls on the ergonomic handle let you switch from slow to fast speed with a simple swipe of your finger. This makes your cleaning work even easier.

Apart from the shoulder strap, there are also other additional tools that are included in your package. This starts with a dusting brush, a tool to clean cracks, a floor brush etc. You can see the full list of included tools here. As you can see, this machine has everything to ensure that your home is clean and free from any sort of dust or dirt.

A 5 year limited warranty should tell you how much Hoover trusts the quality of their products. So is it really all good?


What’s bad about this vacuum cleaner?

Despite the numerous advantages that the Hoover Platinum Lightweight Upright Vacuum has, there are unfortunately also a few disadvantages that you should know about before making your decision. Some reports suggest that this vacuum cleaner is best suited for users that have carpets in their homes. This seems to be mainly because the machine lacks a brush designed for hard wood floors. So if you have no carpets in your house you might want to have a look at the Hoover Linx cordless stick vacuum (this one even does the whole cleaning for you, how cool is that?)

The other issue lies with the replacement bags. You probably already made your decision to go for a bagged vacuum cleaner instead of a bagless version, but we want to remind you of course. The replacement bags go for around $5 for a double pack. But Hey! They are of high quality.


Our Verdict

All in all, this Hoover vacuum cleaner stands out amongst other similar models. If you want easy cleaning and very fresh, dust-free air, then the Hoover Platinum series Linx cordless vacuum should be your choice.

I hope this review can help you know better about this Hoover Platinum Lightweight Upright Vacuum.
