For homes subjected to pet dander, food crumbs, molds, pollens, and other types of dirt and debris too many or too big for cordless vacuums to handle, the Fuller Brush Spiffy Maid vacuum contains a powerful motor in a small, sleek, and lightweight package perfect for dislodging and collecting heavy debris. The HEPA filter makes sure that no allergens and pollutants roam free in your home, therefore making not only your floors and surfaces spotless, but also your air much cleaner.
While this electric broom is remarkably powerful and efficient at cleaning all sorts of dirt and debris in most surfaces, it does feel a bit flimsy to use and can be a bit difficult to clean and maintain. The dust cup can be awkward to empty, which, being quite small and therefore quick to fill up, can be frustrating when vacuuming frequently. The HEPA filter also lets out a cloud of dust when cleaned, which may be dangerous for asthma sufferers. In a nutshell, you’ll want to be a bit more careful in cleaning and maintaining this vacuum to prevent pollutants and allergence from going everywhere.
Main features explained
The Fuller Brush Spiffy Maid vacuum cleaner is a corded model, which means that it has a more powerful motor to suck up heavier and larger debris. This vacuum is a little bit heavier than cordless stick vacuums, but a lot lighter than canister vacuums, with the suctioning power being somewhere in between. It can pick up animal hair, kibble, kitchen crumbs, and other household dirt and debris that cordless vacuums typically cannot pick up. If you want a good vacuum for linoleum and other bare floors that can leave a floor spotless without needing rotating brushes and other accessories, this vacuum is perfect for the job.
Some vacuums are too powerful, conjuring up a dust storm in smaller areas, whereas some vacuums are too weak, barely stirring up small dust particles. The Fuller Brush Spiffy Maid vacuum, on the other hand, has a slider for variable suction control, therefore making it easier for you to choose just the right amount of suction power so you don’t waste too much energy on light vacuuming tasks nor spend too little energy on moderate to heavy vacuuming tasks. The ability to switch between the crevice and floor tool also helps you further fine tune the vacuum’s suction for a more focused or wider cleaning area.
A lot of homes aren’t well-ventilated, which means that pollutants and allergens could build up at toxic levels. This is where HEPA filters come into play. HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air, which means that any vacuum equipped with one can remove smoke, mold, and other allergens better than vacuums with regular filters can. Typically, effective HEPA filters can remove approximately 99.97 percent of these harmful particles, making them ideal for homes that typically don’t have a lot of air flushing out accumulated pollutants and allergens. If you are concerned about the air quality in your home, apart from better air circulation, the HEPA filter in this vacuum is the next best thing to increasing air quality.
