One of the most important things for asthma sufferers to do to limit the exposure to triggers is to simply eliminate them. High-quality vacuum cleaners with the HEPA filtration system will help to remove many triggers such as dust mites, pet dander, pollen, and get things really clean. The Hoover Self Propelled Wind Tunnel Ultra is more than up to this task.
The Wind Tunnel upright has many special features that make it easy to use. It is self-propelled, which is great, as it is a larger vacuum. With its size, the self-propelled feature is great to have. You simply let the vacuum pull itself around the floor, sucking up dirt and debris as it goes.
The embedded dirt finder of the Hoover Wind Tunnel will help you to remember to slow down when you vacuum, and it actually lets you know when they are clean, which is great for those who have a knack for going to fast and missing things.
Unlike other types of vacuum cleaners, the Wind Tunnel Ultra offers attachments that are easy to use and actually work. To activate any of the attachments, you simply lock the handle of the vacuum in the upright position. Doing so will automatically turn the dual agitator brushes off.
The attachment hose is a very flexible, high-quality extension that doesn`t require you to connect it to anything for it to be used. All you have to do is pull the end of the hose from the vacuum and begin using it. Among the several attachments you can use are two extension wands, a crevice tool, upholstery nozzle with a rotating brush, and a dusting brush as well.
Ability to clean
The Hoover self-propelled Wind Tunnel is superb on hard floors and carpets. It features a hardwood floor setting that will turn the agitator brushes off so that it doesn`t blow dirt back while you vacuum.
It offers plenty of power for hardwood floors, picking up virtually anything. Vacuuming rugs and carpets is a snap as well. With the embedded dirt finder and the high level of power, cleaning is easy. Throw in a built-in edge cleaner and you have a nice vacuum.
Several people may be flat out shocked to find a vacuum in this price range that still uses bags. This isn`t really a bad feature, especially for those who suffer from asthma. Emptying a bagless vacuum can be very tricky for those who suffer from asthma as the dust and debris can quickly end up back into the air that you breathe.
The Hoover Wind Tunnel uses 3M vacuum bags that feature full HEPA filtration in a 6 step process to ensure that dust, pollen, and other triggers remain in the bag and don`t make it back into your home or into your air. This vacuum cleaner also offers an easy to read indicator that will let you know when the bag is full.
The bottom line
The Hoover Wind Tunnel is a great vacuum cleaner and is one of the best you can buy. It is a great choice for removing asthma triggers from your carpet and floors as well as bedding and other furniture. It is also very easy to use and has plenty of power to spare.
The embedded dirt finder can be the best friend of an asthma sufferer very fast. It the features aren`t enough to make you a believer, the vacuum is also rated #1 in several magazines, which proves hand down that this vacuum is more than worth the purchase.
