New HOOVER® SmartWash™ PET Carpet Cleaner

Simplifies Life for Pet-Friendly Households

CHARLOTTE, N.C., June, 2020—The new HOOVER® SmartWash™ PET Complete Automatic Carpet Cleaner simplifies life for pet owners by effortlessly removing deep dirt, stains, and pet messes. TTI Floor Care North America, a division of Techtronic Industries Company Limited, recently unveiled this enhanced version of its highly rated HOOVER® SmartWash™ Automatic Carpet Cleaner. The new PET version offers easy-to-use, deep-cleaning technology with unique new features to tackle the carpet and upholstery cleaning needs of the 85 million U.S. households with pets.


The original HOOVER® SmartWash™ changed the way consumers clean carpets when introduced in 2018 by making carpet cleaning as easy as vacuuming. Unlike other carpet cleaners, SmartWash™ carpet cleaners are hassle-free with automatic cleaning, drying, and solution mixing technology. The new SmartWash™ PET is just as effective and easy to use: simply push forward to wash and pull back to dry. SmartWash™ PET also is easy to maintain; just remove, empty, and clean tanks and brushes when finished.


Designed for pet owners, and all types of busy homes, the HOOVER® SmartWash™ PET incorporates three powerful features to deep clean the most challenging messes:


·     The integrated Spot Chaser™ Pretreat Spray Wand tackles set-in stains with the power of OXY formula;

·     Antimicrobial FlexForce™ PowerBrushes resist pet odors while agitating and penetrating carpet to remove ground-in dirt; and

·     The Antimicrobial Pet Tool attaches to the eight-foot hose and eliminates tough stains on carpets, stairs, and upholstery.


“Our original SmartWash™ Carpet Cleaner was a game changer. It literally made carpet cleaning as easy as vacuuming,” said Jessica Rapp, Vice President and General Manager of TTI Floor Care North America. “Now, with SmartWash™ PET, we have taken that amazingly simple product and added new innovative features to solve for the spots, stains, and odors familiar to pet owners.”


Owning vs. Renting vs. Hiring: SmartWashPET is the Way to Go

With people spending more time in their homes this year, it is the perfect opportunity to have a carpet cleaner at your fingertips. Carpets should be cleaned often, about 3-4 times a year—more so in households with pets—and the cost, benefits, and ease of use make the HOOVER® SmartWash™ PET ideal.


Rental machines are heavy, cumbersome, and can bring someone else’s dirt into a home. Hiring a professional service is expensive and can inconvenience a family for hours while contractors are in the home. Owning the SmartWash™ PET is perfect for busy homes with pets and children, and the benefits are numerous: cleaning on one’s own time as often as needed, the ease of operation, and a relatively small initial investment that may be recouped after as few as two uses.


Priced at $299, the new HOOVER® SmartWash™ PET is available now at The original HOOVER SmartWash™ is also available at all major retailers.


HOOVER® offers an assortment of powerful carpet washers, hard floor cleaners, cleaning solutions and pretreat products—including its new OXY formula that permanently removes dirt, stains, and odors and the HOOVER® Paws & Claws Cleaning Solution which is designed to effectively clean pet stains, odors, and messes.
