Stylish, powerful and versatile…

Hoover has been around a long time and makes a great range of both corded and cordless vacuum cleaners that are suitable for many types of homes alike. It’s now 2018 and vacuum cleaners have moved on since the bulky, heavy corded versions that you had to lug around your home, fortunately, the cordless vacuum cleaner revolution has swept the market and continues to prove a true alternative for many people who want powerful but convenience cleaning.

Today we’re going to review a new vacuum from Hoover and it’s the “Hoover Freedom 2in1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner” with a model number of FD22BR, it’s available in three colours which are red, silver and blue to suit most peoples colour tastes. Firstly it’s cordless so there are no wires apart from the one that charges the battery, it’s a 2-in-1 system and this means you have a full upright stick vacuum like your traditional cleaner which is ideal for floors such as carpet and reaching high up, additionally it also offers a handheld unit and this makes cleaning stairs, upholstery, pet beds, in your car and is ideal for spot cleaning e.g. cereal around the home.

No more cord to worry about, clean anywhere…

In terms of performance you can expect plenty of suction power, it features a 22v lithium-ion battery pack that will let you clean for around 22 minutes, like most cordless vacuums it has a trigger that you press located on the handle that essentially turns on the vacuum cleaner which is made easier by a ‘continuous’ mode button that prevents your finger from getting tired and is can be simply activated by sliding a lever to activate, it’s all quite simple. When you have finished cleaning just plug in the charging cable and it’ll take around six hours for a full charge.

If your home has carpets and upholstery, most do you will know that with pets if you have any hair can become a problem so the included motorised brush bar located at the front of the brush head helps tremendously with this and makes cleaning a lot easier.  There are also all of the accessories that are usually present with a traditional vacuum cleaner are included with this cordless vacuum cleaner such as a dusting brush, upholstery tool. Hoover also provide a handy wall mount system which makes storing the vacuum, its accessories and charging a lot tidier.

Well designed, simple operation and just works…

The dust container has a size of 0.7 litres (just under 1 litre) and this is about average compared to similar makes and models on offer today. Emptying is easily done, simply open your bin then press a single button on the dust container and any dirt, debris and pet hair will just fall into the bin below. The included filters etc can all be cleaned/washed which makes maintenance easy and keeps it running in tip top condition, this is an important note to consider cordless vacuums.
