Hoover REACT Upright

This tag right here? This one is going to hang on the Christmas tree.

Hoover Tested for Paws & Claws™ Seal

Besides the usual house dust and dirt, our home has both a cat and dog. So when it comes to vacuuming, pet hair is my top request for home eviction. This is one reason why the Hoover REACT Upright deserves my love {hence a spot on the tree}, as it helps me in that battle in having pets in our home, and a clean home at that.

I already introduced my readers to Hoover’s new REACT line with the REACT Cordless Stick Vacuum, and one of the great features of the REACT line is that they are especially effective in homes with pets.

Hoover React Upright

The Hoover Tested for Paws & Claws™ Seal meets Hoover’s high standards for optimal pet hair removal on floors and above. Not only to keep my carpets and floors clean – but getting that hair means less is dragged around with us all day long. It’s a wonder how pet hair can weave into carpets so well {which explains the need for a good quality pet-approved vacuum}, yet happily cling to everyone’s clothing so carefree-like.

At first use I immediately noticed that this vacuum wants to GO. It seems to self propel at just the right times, making vacuuming easier yet I do notice that it is a tad top heavy compared to others. So that is something to note.

Notice I said carpet AND floors? As a refresher to my previous post, REACT means that this Hoover product has FloorSense Technology, which means that sensors detect changing floor types and automatically adjusts brush roll speed for the best results on any floor type.

 

If there is ever any question as to what REACT is sensing, it tells you!

How do you engage this feature? As with the cordless stick model, you can activate or deactivate FloorSense by pressing the button located on top of the body, or directly from the Hoover App as well. Yep, the REACT range is bluetooth enabled as well, for those that like instructions, settings and reminders at their fingertips.

Another feature of the Hoover REACT Upright that I think you’ll appreciate – the Sealed Allergen System. It captures and contains 99% of dust and allergens and prevents them from being released back into your home. It’s one step to ensure good health, especially in the winter months when we’re so closed into our homes.

There is a tab to choose max or min suction, and while options are a great thing – mine is always on maximum.

Since it comes with the crevice tool and dusting brush, you can use the detachable nozzle to clean with the tools. These I use all the time, especially to get in the corners of the carpeted stairs. You know, where the dog sits and waits for people to come in and show love, tail wagging and digging pet hair right in there. Ya, there.

I like the Hoover React Upright because it can be used to clean almost every inch of my house. While I do primarily use the cordless stick for higher-up places and continual spot cleans – the upright is my go-to for that thorough clean twice a week. It has the power, suction and features that reassures me that I’m {or rather, it’s?} doing all that can be done in the battle for a clean home.

 

Get your Hoover React Upright at at Hoover.ca, Canadian Tire, Costco, Walmart, and London Drugs to name a few. It’s regularly priced at $349.99 CAD which is a deal for a vacuum loaded with features.
