Today, we’re taking an in-depth look at the Prolux 2019 iFORCE Lightweight HEPA Bagless Canister Vacuum. This is a great canister vacuum that comes with a bunch of different features that are very useful.
In this quick buying guide, you’re going to learn all about these features. As a quick refresher, a canister vacuum is a cleaning device in the shape of a canister. It doesn’t stand up tall or straight, and it’s usually somewhat light. This means you can move it around with a great deal of ease, cleaning a wide variety of different spaces and places, and it isn’t difficult to use or store.
Now, let’s begin!
Weighing just 10 pounds, this is not a heavy vacuum. You can pick it up, move it around, and store it very easily.
Due to this small size and lack of heft, you will have an easy time cleaning smaller spaces, and narrow spaces, such as crevices and corners, among many others.
As for the motor, this is a motor that provides 12 amps of sheer power. For many canister vacuums, this is quite a bit, even moreso when you consider the weight and size, as well as the cost, of this particular Canister Vacuum.
You can use this motor to deep clean because it is paired with a deep-cleaning electric nozzle that has been specifically designed for the iFORCE. One of the best things about this nozzle is the fact that it has been designed to accommodate both hard and soft floors. Most nozzles work best on one particular floor type, but with the iFORCE, the nozzle works great on both surfaces. To clean carpets, just press the switch; the same goes for hard floors.
Having a nozzle like this gives you quite a bit of versatility because you aren’t simply confined to one particular surface-type, and instead, you can clean whatever surface type you need to clean, and you’ll get the same excellent results.
To enhance and extend the capabilities of the nozzle, there are a couple of useful accessories that come with the iFORCE.
You have a “Deluxe 14-Inch Floor Tool”, which makes it easier to deep-clean your floors, giving you a 14-inch floor cleaning radius.
There is a small attachment that enables you to vacuum upholstery. You can use this attachment on your couch, your chairs, and even the interior of your car. This is an excellent feature to have if you have pets and if your furniture gets coated in pet hair.
Along with that, there is a crevice attachment, which you can use to clean small crevices, nooks, crannies, and corners, that the main brush is too big to actually reach and clean.
Finally, there is a Mini Head, which is for deep cleaning specific spots and stains that are on the floor, that the main brush isn’t able to clean very well.
Using those accessories, you have a lot more control over what you clean, and you always have access to the adequate power needed to clean a surface, whatever that surface may be.
When vacuuming, everything is flown through a two-stage filtration system. This system consists of a HEPA-filter, which takes all of the really small particles – as small as 0.3 microns – and then filters them out so that they aren’t released into your air. If you have allergies, this is a really useful filter.
Once the filtration process has been completed, all of the dirt, dust, and debris goes into a small dust bin. Now, for a canister vacuum, this dust bin isn’t particularly large, but it isn’t small, either. You can clean for a while, and you won’t have to empty it out that often. Assuming, of course, you aren’t vacuuming up huge pieces of debris.
Emptying the dust bin is easy, since it has a handle that you can just grab, and then you press a button, and you’ll release the bin. Take it over to the garbage, and empty it out. You can wash it out in the sink if it gets too dirty.
The Prolux 2019 iForce is a fantastic canister vacuum. You can clean anything with it, and the design is simple and clear. You won’t have any problems with it.
If you’re looking for a good canister vacuum, this should be at the top of your list.
