No, I have not been out test driving new cars, though that is a possibility. I have been very busy with my fifth child’s high school graduation and then the big party so what have I been test driving – a new type of vacuum cleaner! You all will love it!!
The Vroom Solo is produced by H-P Products which is the parent company for two different brands of central vacuuming systems. I agreed to test it based on the reputation of these brands but know that Vroom Solo is going to become a brand name that everyone associates with vacuuming.
The Vroom Solo is meant to go in a cupboard so there is some installation required. This was probably my biggest issue as I don’t own my home so the installation was not an easy one as there is some minor modifications recommended in the installation. After some discussions with the company, I managed to put my unit outside a cupboard. It is working great and I would have a pic of it but my camera isn’t working. Look for one to be added at a later date.
While getting ready for graduation, there were a lot of things going on and there were a ton of little messes – not to mention all the grass that was tracked in during the party. I never once had to wonder how long it was going to take me to drag the upright out of the closet and find an available outlet. I never once had to wonder where I left the broom. I just went to the side of the cupboard and started the Vroom Solo. The hose is 24 feet long so I didn’t have to worry about not being able to reach. I just vroomed up the messes. I don’t know if I have ever had as easy a clean up.
One of the biggest issues in my house is storage. There are two closets on the first floor and one on the second floor. There is a room I affectionately call the laundry room where I can tuck some stuff but my garage is my only storage area. Many are the times when company is coming and I have to put the upright in the garage for storage. When a problem happens or mud is tracked in, I am hauling out to the garage to get the upright. Not anymore! I am going over, next to my cabinet and getting the Vroom hose. It is so much easier than the upright.
I want to mention that you can all go over to Vroom Your Room and register for the chance to win a Vroom Solo.
I am going to be putting the Vroom Solo through some additional “testing” as my life goes on this summer. Look for updates as to how well it holds up to a Conroy Summer.
