Thursday, March 09, 2017
Hoover® introduces a powerful duo: the Hoover® Power Scrub Elite™ for whole-room cleaning & the Spotless Portable Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner for spot cleans.

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, March 2017 – Active families know that in a busy household, spills and messes can happen at any time and family foot traffic can quickly build up dirt and grime on rugs and carpets. Hoover® delivers the solutions to keeping carpets and upholstery looking fresh, with the Hoover® Power Scrub Elite™ for routine and deep cleans and the Hoover® Spotless Portable Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner for quick spot and stain removal.

The new Hoover Power Scrub Elite has the power of HeatForce™ and dries carpets 2x faster than the leading professional steam cleaner. HeatForce applies hot air directly to the cleaned area, drying carpets in as little as 45 minutes in Quick Clean mode.

“Having a clean home is important to our consumers but they have a lot of priorities competing for their time,” says Paige Gregory, senior product manager at Hoover. “At Hoover, we’re bringing consumers innovative new features in our carpet washers for better cleaning and faster drying so they can get the job done quickly and can get back to what matters the most in their lives.”

The Hoover Power Scrub Elite provides multiple cleaning modes and enhanced features to tackle an assortment of cleaning needs:

  • Quick Clean mode for rapid surface cleans, perfect for high traffic areas
  • Deep Clean mode for lifting and removing deep down embedded dirt and stains
  • Wash/Rinse mode removes residual cleaning solution to keep carpets clean for longer
  • Patented SpinScrub® Brush System rotates gently to tackle the toughest dirt, without damaging your carpet

Designed for improved cleaning performance and superior dry time, the Hoover Power Scrub Elite delivers a powerful whole-room clean.

Spills, muddy shoes or pet messes can happen at the most inopportune times but, according to the National Carpet Cleaning Association, 99 percent of all stains can be removed if they are cleaned in the first few days. Now with the new Hoover Spotless Portable Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner you can quickly clean up the mess right away, whether it happens on carpet, stairs, area rugs or even upholstery.

This lightweight, portable unit easily lifts and removes spots and stains by combining powerful suction and antimicrobial deep-cleaning tools with gentle Hoover Expert cleaning detergents.

With patent-pending Self-Clean Technology, the Hoover Spotless provides a complete clean inside and out. The Self-Clean Technology allows you to flush the hose after each use to remove dirt and
residue. In addition, the cleaning tool is engineered with antimicrobial materials to protect it against bacteria, mold and mildew growth. Hoover Dual Tank Technology keeps clean and dirty water in separate, removable tanks, ensuring that the dirty water is never reintroduced to the carpet.

“The Hoover Spotless is lightweight and easy to use, taking only a few minutes to quickly address a spill, stain or dirty area,” says Gregory. “It’s easy to maintain and takes the worry out of the inevitable messes caused by pets and everyday family activities.”

To achieve the easiest clean and quickly get back to what matters most, turn to Hoover’s powerful duo. The Hoover Power Scrub Elite will be available at stores nationwide this spring. The Hoover Spotless Portable Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner is available now at retailers nationwide.

New Cordless Line Offers More Options and Better Solutions to Unplug from Traditional Home Cleaning

GLENWILLOW, OHIO, Spring, 2015—Five cordless cleaners all powered by the same battery system lets consumers customize the way they clean their homes with enough runtime and options to clean a whole home, pick up quick messes, wash/scrub hard floors and tackle hard to reach places—all without the hassle of a cord. 

Hoover, inspired by its corporate affiliation with two powerful contractor-grade tool brands, developed its newest battery system to be as rugged as it is long lasting. The new LithiumLife™ cleaning line uses one interchangeable battery system, which means the same battery can be used to power every cleaner in the new collection.

“Our 2015 range expands our cordless offerings in new categories like deep cleaning for hard floors and high-performance quick cleaning, as well as bringing innovative solutions to traditionally difficult areas such as stair cleaning,” says Paul Bagwell, Global VP of Product Development.

The Hoover LithiumLife™ Cordless Line:

  • The Hoover Air™ Cordless: Hoover’s first full-size, cordless upright vacuum that can clean a whole home.
  • The Hoover Air™ Cordless 2-in-1: A high-performance stick vac with a removable handvac is the ideal quick cleaning solution for pet lovers and multi-floor surfaces.
  • The Hoover Air™ Handheld Vacuum: The same high-performance, cordless hand vac you find in the 2-in-1 for small, stubborn messes.
  • The Hoover Air™ Cordless Lift: A cordless upright with a detachable canister for cleaning hard to reach places such as stairs, ceilings and cars.
  • The FloorMate® Cordless: A cordless hard floor cleaner that that washes, scrubs and dries sealed hard floors.

“By expanding our cordless line, consumers can choose a cordless product that best fits their particular cleaning needs,” says Bagwell. “We looked to provide enough power, capacity and runtime to be considered as a replacement to the machines used today.”

The extension of the cordless line comes after the successful 2014 launch of one of Hoover’s best-rated products, the Hoover Air™ Cordless, their first full-size, whole-home, cordless upright vacuum driven by LithiumLife™ battery technology.

The entire collection will be available spring 2015 on Hoover.com, giving consumers the ability to truly clean with ultimate convenience, just in time for spring cleaning.

Homework Stations to Rug Care: Hoover Vacuums Launches Blog with Help from Top Interior Designer

Design star Kim Myles pairs with iconic vacuum brand to explore the intersection of floor care and design

GLENWILLOW, Ohio, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hoover, the iconic floor care brand with a history of progressing the way Americans clean, has launched a new blog on Hoover.com aimed at giving renters and homeowners practical advice and information on floor care and design with plenty of fun mixed in.

Named 18 Degrees by Hoover, in reference to the angle of the line that bisects their well-known logo, the blog is set to become a clearing house of information that ranges from when and how to clean your floors to design ideas and even cleaning-music playlists.

To help launch the blog, Hoover has partnered with makeover maven Kim Myles. Myles, who appears regularly on OWN's Home Made Simple and is the creator of a line of candles and wall stencils available at KimMyles.com, will be a regular monthly contributor to 18 Degrees by Hoover.

"I feel like flooring is one of the unsung heroes of the room," said Myles. "As a designer, I have a vested interest in flooring, in rugs, in all of that - I am obsessed with it. And Hoover makes it really easy to get it all clean, so it just felt like a perfect storm of happy times."

The collaboration begins with a blog post dedicated to creating an inspiring homework station for families with school-aged kids. Myles offers insights for problems that range from lack of space to the fact that homework can be boring. Hoover intends to involve even more guest bloggers to address unique home solutions on 18 Degrees in the coming year. 18 Degrees by Hoover can be found at hoover.com/blog/

Hoover Partners with MakerBot to Release Exclusive Printable Vacuum Accessories

Hoover Partners with MakerBot to Release Exclusive Printable Vacuum Accessories
The iconic vacuum brand releases print on demand accessories for new cordless cleaner line
Glenwillow, OH (December 19, 2014) – Hoover has announced today that it will be the first vacuum brand to offer print-on-demand accessories for consumers with access to 3D -printers.

In a partnership with MakerBot, leader in the desktop 3D printing industry, Hoover will be releasing printable accessories for its new line of cordless vacuums built on the LithiumLife battery platform on MakerBot’s website Thingiverse, the world’s largest global design destination for viewing, sharing and 3D printing digital design files.

“This new innovative technology is a great fit for our progressive new cordless cleaners,“ said Global vice president of Product Development Paul Bagwell. “Offering exclusive print-on-demand tools and accessories allows Hoover to address narrower consumer needs that might not justify whole-scale manufacturing. 3D printing allows us to be more nimble and respond to consumer accessory and customization needs quicker than typical manufacturing processes might allow.”    

The pilot program will begin with the release of two 3D printable accessories for the new Hoover Air Cordless; both available for download on MakerBot’s Thingiverse.com website.

Both tools are designed to address needs for owners of the full-size cordless vacuum: A snap-on battery mount to carry the extra LithiumLife battery that comes with the Air Cordless. And a clip to add a flashlight to the end of the extension wand to light up dark corners and the floor underneath couches and chairs.

The two tools are also paired with a two historical models of classic Hoover cleaners to illustrate how the 100-year-old brand sits at the crossroads of history and modern innovation.

Hoover will follow the initial accessory release with another set of exclusive tools to coincide with the launch of their Hoover Air Cordless Lift in spring of 2015.

Stress Over Holiday Cleaning Means Startling Shortcuts for Millions of Americans

Thursday, December 04, 2014

New Hoover Holiday Cleanliness Survey Reveals Seasonal Stress Can Lead to Fake Cleaning Tactics
Glenwillow, OH (December 3, 2014) – A new survey from Hoover, in association with Kelton Global, has revealed that Americans could use some helper elves of their own when it comes cleaning the home for the holidays.
According to the Hoover Holiday Cleanliness Survey, Americans are more stressed over cleaning during the winter holidays than traveling, cooking, unexpected guests popping in, baking, putting up and taking down decorations, or gift wrapping.

Missed a Spot
Why all the angst? It turns out the stress is self-imposed. Nearly half (46%) of Americans say they are their own biggest critic about the cleanliness of their home during the holidays.
And that self-criticism is possibly what leads many Americans to some startlingly sneaky behaviors. The survey found that a whopping 71% of Americans admit to faking a pristine house during the holiday season using tactics like hiding messy belongings behind closed doors (55%), cleaning around decorations (35%), moving furniture to hide stains (14%), and even sweeping debris under rugs (10%).
Those faux-tidy tactics most likely happen in one of two problem rooms. The survey queried Americans about the hardest rooms to tackle over the holidays and the results were clear: the living room, due to all the decorations (35%) and the kitchen due to all the crumbs (33%).

Gift of Easier Cleaning
Would a gift of a vacuum help with all the shortcuts? Possibly. According to survey results, 67 million Americans would appreciate a vacuum under the tree. Still, only 24 million would give a vacuum, suggesting many vacuum appreciators will likely not be vacuum receivers.
Holiday Cleaning Survival Secrets
Based on survey results, Hoover suggests using the stress-relieving SAVE method for holiday preparing.
Straighten: to get things tidy.
Arrange: by repositioning a couch or trading out the books you have on your coffee table to get a fresh look.
Vacuum: To get debris and those important vacuum lines and then
say, “Enough” and relax before you entertain.
Hoover also suggests offering cleaning help to friends and loved ones during the season of giving and asking before ever gifting a vacuum, just to be sure.
Full survey results will be featured over the coming weeks on Hoover.com/blog
