#1 Clean Up After Pets

Got a furry family member? A Hoover pet vacuum is a must for pre-party prep. In a move your allergy-prone guests will appreciate, a Hoover ONEPWR Evolve Pet Elite Cordless Vacuum has the powerful suction to remove fur and hair from carpet and rugs, while lifting the fluff and dander you can’t see. 

“Hoover pet vacuums have the run time, reliability and performance you need to get floors thoroughly clean before the party starts. Plus, Tangle Guard tech stops hair getting caught in the brush roll to keep suction strong,” says Nick Trajkovski, The Good Guys Buyer – Floorcare. 

For those speedy final touch-ups, the self-standing and lightweight design of the Hoover ONEPWR Emerge Pet Plus Cordless Vacuum is perfect for powering through high-traffic areas. This Hoover stick vacuum even converts to a handheld vacuum for cleaning those couch cushions (that Fido loves).

#2 Prep Carpets With A Pro-Quality Clean

Whether it’s a well-trod hallway or a stubborn stain you’ve covered with (strategically placed) furniture, carpets will require some extra TLC before guests descend. Cleaning is made easy with the Hoover SmartWash Carpet Washer – a floor-cleaning supremo that’ll cover everything from quick stain removal to deep cleans. 

And for those times when guests accidentally spill coffee or wine, a well-prepared host will be armed and ready with the Hoover SmartWash Carpet Washer. The world’s first triggerless and lightweight home carpet cleaner, this carpet saviour is a pro at on-the-spot cleaning – no more soaking or waiting for chemicals to lift stains on the couch or carpet. 

The secret? Hoover’s FlexForce PowerBrushes have precisely angled bristles to dig out the toughest of stains. For the ultimate stain-busting duo, top up the Hoover with Oxy Carpet Solution – this savvy stain remover targets and lifts stubborn marks and grime.

#3 Have A Cordless Vacuum On Hand

From a full-house vacuum to a quick tidy-up before guests arrive, the Hoover ONEPWR Emerge Cordless Vacuum is your one-size-fits-all go-to. The motorised head keeps suction strong as you zoom from the bedroom carpet to the kitchen tiles. When you reach the stairs, pop out the in-built handheld vacuum to blitz every crevice. 

For vacuuming whenever and wherever, turn to your convenient and versatile right-hand Hoover. Keep a Hoover cordless vacuum near the kitchen to clean up food prep crumbs, or by the patio for stray crisps. When it’s time for the post-party cleanup, an extra Hoover ONEPWR Battery and Hoover ONEPWR Dual Charger bring long-lasting power to your Hoover cordless vacuum.

#4 Clean More Than The Floor

Don’t forget the furniture! Look to a Hoover CleanSlate Spot Cleaner to freshen up the futon and clean the couch. 

Carry this lightweight washer to wherever the mess is, then choose the right attachment to match. Snap on the WidePath Tool for the mud-splattered outdoor lounge; choose the bristle insert to gently remove stains from living room upholstery; or opt for the TightSpot Tool to reach a coffee stain that’s dripped down the arm of the couch. 

Dealing with a particularly stubborn stain? Before you hit it with the Hoover CleanSlate Spot Cleaner, first spray the area with the Oxy Tough Stain Remover Spray to ensure best results.

#5 Keep It Spotless And Sanitised

There’s clean carpet, and then there’s clean carpet ‒ make your soft flooring super sanitised with Hoover’s tailored carpet-cleaning solutions. 

The Renewal Carpet Solution 1L will keep carpet perfectly fresh, while a dash of the Free & Clean Carpet Solution 1L in your Hoover carpet cleaner will also help eliminate allergens

Whether Spot the dog had an accident on the rug or chewed a bone on the couch, Hoover has the Paws & Claws Urine Eliminator Pre Treat Spray, Paws & Claws Antibacterial Carpet Solution 1L and Oxy Deep Stain Aerosol to trump odours, stains and germs.
