Hoover has launched a new model that cleverly adjusts suction power and brush bar settings depending on the floor type it is cleaning.
Whether its carpet, hard floor or a deep-piled rug, the Hoover H-UPRIGHT 500 Sensor Plus Home will detect and adapt itself accordingly, capturing dust, debris and allergens with ease thanks to its powerful, multi-cyclonic technology.
Promising sustained performance with no loss of suction*, the vacuum is ideal for allergy sufferers too with an H13 HEPA filtration system that help to purify the air in the home.
Ultra-manoeuvrable with a swivel floor nozzle and featuring LED ‘headlights’ usually found on other vacuum formats, the H-UPRIGHT 500 Sensor Plus Home has an extra-long reach of up to 15m, making light work of both under-foot and above-floor cleaning thanks to the on-board accessories.
Complete with a generous 1.5L bin capacity, the vacuum is a highly capable, powerful and agile model that, thanks to its technology and reach, can cover plenty of space without the need to keep unplugging and relocating the cord.
Hoover is also launching a pets model of the vacuum which includes a mini turbo brush. Not just for those with furry friends, the accessory is ideal for cleaning stairs and upholstery, too.
Both products have a manual suction vent, too, for ultra-precise power.
Francesca Hodson, product marketing manager – small domestic appliances at Hoover, said: “The UK has a real affinity for upright vacuums and they are often the main cleaner in the home, complemented by a stick or handheld model elsewhere in the house.
“Vacuums can be very complex appliances though and sometimes people don’t know how or what to change whilst vacuuming to get the most out of their product. For instance, deciding when to use the brush bar, or not, or when to change the suction settings, for example. So we wanted to create a model that would take some of the hard work out of the chore.
“Whilst some uprights may be cumbersome and rigid, flexibility are at the core of the H-UPRIGHT Sensor Plus Home and we’re proud to have evolved a much-loved vacuum style into an agile and powerful model that will intuitively serve modern lives.”
