In this Hoover WindTunnel 2 Whole House Rewind review, we will go in detail and talk about all the features this product has. This Hoover upright vacuum cleaner makes cleaning the floor, ceiling and any corner of the house much easier. Also, if you are a pet owner then this device offers much more for you.
Corded devices are not ideal for some people because of how messy they can be sometimes or how they restrict the movement but Hoover UH71250 has a neat idea for it. First of all, it has a 25 feet long cord that provides optimum freedom to the user so that cleaning can be done easily without the need for an extension cable. The cord itself is stored inside the machine and only the plug is visible. You can pull it out whenever you need to clean the house and there is also no need to wrap the cord around when the work is done. The cable has a rewind mechanism so it stores itself inside the machine again.
This machine can also be used as a push vacuum if you choose to use the Multi-Floor brushroll. This part is present at the bottom of the device and has a motorized brush. There are also plastic wheels on the bottom to make the movement of the equipment around the house easier. As suggested by the name, this brushroll is suitable for multiple surfaces from hardwood to carpet, stairs, and tiles. This brushroll can be turned on or off with the small button at the bottom allowing you to use this only when deep cleaning is needed e.g for carpets and rugs. It is recommended to turn off the Multi-floor brushroll while cleaning the hardwood floor to prevent debris from flying off.

The vacuum has a clear plastic hose that is almost 7 feet long when expanded completely. It is quite useful in sucking up a pile of dirt or trash laying around the corner. This hose also allows attaching other accessories for a better and more precise cleaning process. It is not permanently attached to the device which makes sanitizing the hose a lot easier. It comes right off when pressure is applied to the junction and can be cleaned with regular water. To prevent the motor from getting ruined, use the hose only when it is completely dried.
Telescopic plastic wand: This is a standard wand that has no special brush at the end. It is just used to join the vacuum to other brushes and tools. The stick is made with hard plastic and is about 13 inches long that provides more access to the surrounding for easy cleaning. When this tool is attached to the upright vacuum body, it offers 16 feet of reach. This is why it is a great tool especially if you are planning on cleaning the ceiling or ceiling fan.
Pivoting brush tool: This tool is usually used with the stick. It is not motorized but has hard bristles at the end of it. Pivoting Brush is used for cleaning ceiling fans, brushing furniture, windows, curtains, blinds, etc. The brush bristles disturb the dirt particle and the vacuum then uses the suction to clean them up.
Crevice tool: The name says it all, this is a rather thin tool for smaller nooks and crannies where the bigger tools can not reach. For example, under the bed, cupboards, sofa, refrigerator, behind the bookshelf are the places where this tool shows its full potential. It is used with the stick accessory.
Pet turbo tool: This tool is especially for pet owners as the rolling brush along with the double suction provided by the vacuum can clean most of the pet hair. This tool is mostly used along with the hose as the flexible hose provides the freedom to move the tool freely on couches and other surfaces.
What sets Hoover WindTunnel 2 Whole House Rewind apart from other vacuums in the market is the double suction mechanism. The special technology of Hoover UH71250 creates double suction which makes cleaning rugs and carpet easier and leaves the surface looking brand new. This technology along with the 2 cyclonic mechanisms makes the suction more powerful. The multi-cyclonic mechanism prevents the suction power from fluctuating and the user a better cleaning experience.

There is a small button on the front side of the Multi-floor brushroll that allows the user to adjust the height of the device. The height adjustments do not give drastic results but it is better as different floors work best with different heights of the vacuum. For thick carpets, you want the vacuum to be lower so that the bristles can vibrate the dust particles and make the cleaner’s job easier.
The machine filters all of the allergens and clears the air, it also cleans pollen from the air. The odor absorbing carbon technology makes the air smells fresh.
This device is bagless and comes with only 1 Hepa filter. When the cleaner is used constantly the filter gets dirty it can not be used. But do not worry, this filter is washable and reusable. But if you want to use the vacuum right away then it is easy to find a similar filter. Overall this feature is better because it saves a lot of money on buying disposable vacuum bags.
The dirt container is made with clear plastic which makes it easier to check if it has any capacity left. The bin is also easy to clean, there is a button present that opens up the bottom of the bin for hygienic no-touch dirt disposal.
The vacuum has a designated area on the left side where you can store the tools and accessories. This space only holds the plastic want and pivoting brush tool but it is a nice touch as these are the two accessories that are used regularly.
This product is advertised as a lifesaver for pet owners but in this Hoover WindTunnel 2 Whole House Rewind review let’s discuss its real advantage. The performance of Hoover UH71250 on the carpet is amazing as well. It has different levels of height that can be adjusted depending on the thickness of the carpet. The thick yet soft motorized brush roll shakes the dust particles and the double channel suction cleans it all. No matter if you spilled glitter or sand on the carpet, Hoover WindTunnel 2 Whole House Rewind is going to clean it in no time.
Just like carpet, cleaning the hardwood floor with this product is easier as in this Hoover UH71250 review we said the device has a level adjustment feature. So when there are small bits of physical trash, just lower the machine and get rid of all of the trash. The only downside is the plastic tires that can damage the wood if the equipment is pulled or pushed aggressively.

The pet turbo tool that comes with this vacuum is a great relief for pet owners. This tool gets rid of almost all of the hair. The brand claims that this vacuum is best at cleaning hair but the pet hair performance of this vacuum is rather normal and not that special.
In this Hoover WindTunnel 2 Whole House Rewind review, you learned all of the features this product has, but the icing on the top is the couple of accessories it embraces. The body is lightweight and easy to access and gives several different options to clean the house. The only downside can be that the tires are made with plastic but other than that it is a good value for money.
