Swiffer Users Beware: Bona Mopping Up The Competition – GoVacuum Video Series

For years, Swiffer® has had a stranglehold on the hardwood floor-cleaning market. Its Wet Jet® mopping system was a virtual monopoly, with no competitor up to the task of dethroning the king of clean.

On April 1, however, Swiffer’s dynasty officially ended.

That fateful day marked the release of Bona’s Hardwood Spray Mop, and after conducting an extensive review of the product in a side-by-side comparison in the GoVacuum Video Series with its competition, GoVacuum was blown away by the results. Not only did the Bona mop prove superior to the WetJet, but even more surprisingly, it wasn’t even close. Some highlights of the findings:

* Bona’s state-of-the-art microfiber pad is reusable up an astounding 250 times

– Replacing Swiffer’s disposable pads for the same amount of use would cost an additional $120

* Bona’s mist spray does just that, emitting a fine mist up to 3 feet out

– By comparison, Swiffer’s “spray” creates puddles that can be damaging to hardwood floors

* Bona’s mop is six inches wider than the Swiffer WetJet, making for more efficient use and less work for the consumer
* The Bona mop also comes with a bigger solution tank than Swiffer’s (28 oz. vs. 16 oz.), and unlike its competitor, doesn’t’ require batteries to operate.

In retrospect, we really shouldn’t have been surprised by the results of the trial. Bona has been an industry leader in hardwood floor care for over a century, so the release of a yet another top-of-the-line product is just more of the same from this company. Swiffer users might be hesitant to give up their outdated mops, but much like how the VCR was rendered obsolete by the DVD player, the switch to Bona is not a question of if, but rather, a question of when. And the answer to that question is now.

Consumer Reports Finds Flaws in Dirt Devil’s Vacuum Design

Rechargeable hand held vacuum cleaners can be very handy. From cleaning out your car, to vacuuming hard to reach places, to quick pick-ups in the kitchen, cordless hand vacuum cleaners are extremely useful. One of the most popular hand vac’s has been Dirt Devil’s Kone, and Kurv models. Half piece of art, and half hand vac, these machines are a popular item here at GoVacuum, especially during the Christmas season.

In Consumer Reports’ annual vacuum cleaner ratings edition they tested different widely available hand vac models, including the Kone. In their report they discovered a “safety hazard” with some of the Kone models.

The specific Dirt Devil Kone models in question are the M0213, and the M0212 models. The problem, however, seems to be narrowed down to only the older L series machines. The problem is apparently because of an undersized filter adapter that has caused the machine to expel sand particles out of the exhaust port. The new “J” series models have a better sealing filter adapter and are not having this problem. “L” Series models are identifiable by the Plant code on the back of the machine.

Although no injuries have been caused by this problem, particles as big as sand being expelled from the vacuum cleaner should be a cause for concern, especially for those suffering from breathing issues such as allergies and asthma. Sand particles can be as large as 100 microns in size compared to dust mites and their droppings at 10.0 microns, or pollen particles at 10-30 microns, which are both highly explosive triggers for people with allergies and asthma.

In response to the Consumer Report’s test, Dirt Devil is giving customers who purchased the L series a free filter adapter. Customers can call Dirt Devil directly at 1-800-321-1134 in order to receive your free filter adapter.

One thing must be made clear to our readers. Rarely, dare I say never, do we agree with Consumer Reports’ view on vacuums. For years, their top rated vacuums have been some of the worst in the industry but “ironically” are vacuums sold exclusively to Big Box stores like K-Mart (Kenmore). (Corporate collusion anyone?) Our goal in discussing this specific Consumer Reports’ piece is to make sure that our customers get the free filter they deserve, so make sure to give Dirt Devil a call.

Further, we’ve made active attempts both online and in our retail stores to educate consumers on their vacuum purchases.

In addition to the Dirt Devil Kone, GoVacuum recommends the Filter Stream V2510, the only hand vacuum to have a sealed, HEPA certified filter. This Filter Stream Dirt Tamer is Wet/Dry and comes with a strong warranty for a hand vac, with a 2 Year parts and labor warranty.

GoVacuum’s Miele and Sebo Special Offers

When you purchase a vacuum, it usually comes with a warranty that guarantees the life and performance of the machine for an “x” amount of years. The length of the warranty generally can relate to the quality of the machine; longer the warranty, better quality of the machine, obviously.

Rarely, however, the quality of a machine is also be backed up by the retailer themselves. The supreme quality of Miele and Sebo vacuums have led us to create a special offer that makes purchasing the machine even more appealing for customers. Because we trust that these machines will thoroughly impress customers, we are offering a special risk free 30 day trial on Miele and Sebo vacuums. If you are dissatisfied with the product, you can ship it back to us and we’ll cover the costs.

We initially offered these specials in our newsletters for the month’s of July and August, where we showcased our opinions on the best canister and upright vacuums,Miele and Sebo, respectively.
