One of the most important things for asthma sufferers
to do to limit the exposure to triggers is to simply
eliminate them. High quality vacuum cleaners with
the HEPA filtration system will help to remove many
triggers such as dust mites, pet dander, pollen,
and get things really clean. The Hoover Self
Propelled Wind Tunnel Ultra is more than up to this
The Wind Tunnel upright has many special features
that make it easy to use. It is self propelled,
which is great, as it is a larger vacuum. With
its size, the self propelled feature is great to
have. You simply let the vacuum pull itself around
the floor, sucking up dirt and debris as it goes.
The embedded dirt finder of the Hoover Wind Tunnel
will help you to remember to slow down when you
vacuum, and it actually lets you know when they
are clean, which is great for those who have a
knack for going to fast and missing things.
Unlike other types of vacuum cleaners, the Wind
Tunnel Ultra offers attachments that are easy to
use and actually work. To activate any of the
attachments, you simple lock the handle of the
vacuum in the upright position. Doing so will
automatically turn the dual agitator brushes off.
The attachment hose is a very flexible, high
quality extension that doesn’t require you to
connect it to anything for it to be used. All
you have to do is pull the end of the hose from
the vacuum and begin using it. Among the
several attachments you can use are two extension
wands, a crevice tool, upholstery nozzle with
a rotating brush, and a dusting brush as well.
Ability to clean
The Hoover self propelled Wind Tunnel is superb
on hard floors and carpets. It features a
hard wood floor setting that will turn the
agitator brushes off so that it doesn’t blow
dirt back while you vacuum.
It offers plenty of power for hard wood floors,
picking up virtually anything. Vacuuming
rubs and carpets is a snap as well. With the
embedded dirt finder and the high level of
power, cleaning is easy. Throw in a built
in edge cleaner and you have a nice vacuum.

a vacuum in this price range that still uses
bags. This isn’t really a bad feature, especially
for those who suffer from asthma. Emptying a
bagless vacuum can be very tricky for those
who suffer from asthma as the dust and debris
can quickly end up back into the air that you
