Spring Clean Checklist

Spring Clean Checklist

Here at HooverDirect.co.uk we have a range of products to help you to have a great spring clean this year. In this article we’ll be highlighting our entire product range and how they can help you to clean your home spotless.

Vacuum Cleaner

Our range of upright, cordless and cylinder vacuum cleaners can all clean hard floors and carpets throughout the home. Here’s a checklist of what you can do with a Hoover vacuum during your spring clean.

SHOP ALL VACUUM CLEANERs

Clean the floors

All our vacuum cleaners are great for cleaning the floors, picking up debris, dust, hairs and other dirt around the home. We have a range of vacuum cleaners which work well on both carpets and hard floors. Standout models are the Upright 300s which are corded uprights, perfect for big sessions, with no loss of suction*. Great for big jobs.

For cordless, we have the H-Free 500 family which have a turbo mode for up to 8 minutes of extra-powerful suction,  as well as an easy button to switch from hard floors to carpets.

If you’re looking for a cylinder, we have the Power Capsule bagged cylinder which has a large capacity 5l dust bag, Optimum Power which is bagless, great for allergies and uses multi-cyclonic technology to keep filters cleaner for longer and lastly the Telios which is our quietest Hoover, great for early morning or late night cleaning sessions.

Once vacuumed your hard floors are ready to be steam cleaned (more on this later!). 

The right vacuum for the job

For big sessions we recommended the Upright 300 as it’s corded and lightweight, or a large capacity cylinder vacuum cleaner such as the power capsule. If you prefer the mobility of a cordless try the H-Free 500 twin battery which has double the runtime of a regular H-Free 500.

Remove allergens

For those who suffer from allergies or live with people that do, we recommend an anti-allergy vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter such as the Upright 300 or Upright 500 bundles. These HEPA Hoovers will trap allergens in their filters as you clean, stopping them from being re-released into the air.

Clean the furniture

Our modern vacuum cleaners are great at cleaning your furniture such as sofas and even beds. To do this, you can use the nozzle and upholstery tool with an upright such as the 300 or use the H-Free 500s in handheld mode with tools provided. With these tools you can easily clean the cushions and the crevices such as the sides and the back of the cushions and other small gaps.

For homes with pets, opt for a pets version which comes with a pets brush to pick up stubborn hairs.

Clean shelves, ceilings and skirting

Our vacuum cleaners are great for not only cleaning floors but shelves, ceilings and skirting boards as well. For these jobs you can use the nozzle and tools with an upright such as the 300 or use your cordless in handheld mode and attach the relevant tools such as the dusting brush and the crevice tool.

Our longest reach upright is the H-Upright 500.

Clean the stairs

We have a wide range of vacuum cleaners which can make light work of your stairs. Our newest Upright 300 has a detachable nozzle which you can use with tools to clean the flat surfaces and the tight edges of the stairs.

For better mobility on the stairs we recommend the H-Upright 700 with a lift-out cylinder to make carrying up the stairs much easier, alternatively you can use a traditional cylinder vacuum cleaner or a cordless in handheld mode with the pets brush which is great for carpeted stairs

Clean your car

Cordless vacuums such as the H-Free 500 series can convert into a handheld with up to 40 minutes runtime to clean up your car. The various tools included can make short work of those hard to reach places as well as the upholstery.

Our H-FREE 800 bundle is also great for car cleaning with a selection of tools to suit all tasks. This model was scored 96/100 by Good Housekeeping.

Alternatively, dedicated handheld models such as the H-Handy are lightweight and can be convenient for quick clean-ups in the car. If you ride with pets then consider the pets model with an additional pets brush to lift away pet hair

Prepare your dog’s bed for steaming

If your dog’s bed can’t be machine washed then a vacuum cleaner can pick up loose debris and hairs (with a pet brush) before using a steam cleaner to freshen it up.

Air Purifier

Air purifiers are great in spring as they can tackle indoor allergens to leave your home a safe breathing space. Here’s a checklist of what our range of purifiers can do this spring season

SHOP AIR PURIFIERS

Keep allergies in check

An air purifier’s core function is to pick up and trap allergens from ambient air in its HEPA filter. Although allergies are around all year round, they are particularly prevalent in spring and summer. 

The H-PURIFIER range includes a pollen allergy mode which captures and then neutralises pollens, removing their ability to trigger rhinitis. In addition, the hOn app can alert you when the pollen count outside is high to prepare your purifier in advance and warn you to keep windows and doors closed.

Lastly, the H-PURIFIER range tackles non-seasonal allergens, too, such as pet hairs and dander, dust and mould. This makes the air purifier a really handy tool to have for your spring clean. 

Diffuser

The H-PURIFIER 500 and 700 have a built in diffuser which can release probiotics to sanitise surfaces, creating a more hygienic environment and actively cleaning throughout the day during spring. A handy feature for those with busy homes and busier hands all over kitchen counters etc.

Steam

Steam cleaners and mops are what you need for a deep and hygienic clean this spring. If you have one or are thinking of getting a Hoover steam cleaner then here’s a handy checklist of how useful they can be for a spring clean this year.

Floors

The best place to start with a steam cleaner is the floor. Our steam mops can clean ALL floors thanks to the attachments which come in the box.

The rectangular nozzle cleans large surfaces, the triangular nozzle cleans stubborn dirt and grime and the glider can be used on carpets and rugs.

Through the power of hot steam, our steam mops can kill 99% of bacteria and germs which leaves the surface hygienically clean and fresh. If you haven’t been keeping on top of your cleaning through winter then this is a great product to eliminate all that built up dirt. 

Rugs and carpets

As we mentioned previously, our steam cleaners can freshen up rugs and carpets using the glider accessory. The hot steam will kill any germs and bacteria and leave it feeling and smelling fresh. 

We recommend running over the carpets and rugs with a vacuum cleaner first, before steaming.

Deep clean the kitchen

With the Steam Mop 2 in 1 you can extend the steam cleaning from the floor to above floor surfaces with its detachable handheld unit. This handheld unit can take a lot of manual labour away as the steam blasts grease and grime from stovetops, oven grills and racks. 

Brighten up bathrooms

The handheld inside the Steam 2in1 can also be used to blast away mould, mildew and built up dirt from shower screens, mirrors and around the counters of a bathroom or wet room with the use of the squeegee accessory. It can even be used to target the dirt in the grout.

Freshen up textiles

Once again with the handheld mode of the steam 2 in 1! With the squeegee attachment you can freshen up clothes and textiles such as curtains or upholstery. You could even take it to the car and do the seats!
