If you’re tired of regularly having to manually pull carpet fibers, strings, hairs and other debris from the brushroll of your vacuum, Eureka has just the thing for you.
The new Eureka Brushroll Clean vacuum automatically cleans its own brushroll with the touch of a button, a procedure which Eureka recommends performing monthly. The vacuum includes a host of additional high-end features, together with impressively powerful suction, yet costs less than $200. The Eureka Brushroll Clean sells exclusively at Walmart stores and online at Walmart.com for $198.
The cool features don’t stop with the self-cleaning brushroll, though. The vacuum also sports a retractable power cable, something you rarely see even on vacuums costing twice as much. The 27-foot power cable definitely retracts very well, too. My five-year-old very kindly tested it several times, pulling it out and pushing the button to retract it.
The Eureka Brushroll Clean uses SuctionSeal technology with All-Surface Suction Plates which raise and lower as the vacuum glides across a floor or carpet, creating a seal and maximizing air flow. AirSpeed technology creates an efficient pathway inside the vacuum with minimal twists and turns.
The vacuum performed exceptionally well on a carpet with dirt, debris, food particles and cat hair. It effortlessly sucked up small pieces of fabric scattered from my 11-year-old daughter’s sewing projects.
The Brushroll Clean not only excelled at sucking up dirt on carpets, but also did exceptionally well on bare floors. Many vacuums just push around pieces of food and other debris on floors, but the Brushroll Clean grabbed everything, even dried on food that would have taken some effort to remove with a wet mop.
I accidentally ran the Brushroll Clean over a popsicle stick, and the vacuum seemed to grab hold of it and then reject it, with no sign of getting clogged or any other distress. It also didn’t try to inhale its own power cable when I inadvertently ran over it.
The Eureka Brushroll Clean vacuum offers five settings for varying types of carpets and floors – everything from bare floors to low, medium or high pile carpeting. The vacuum’s Smooth-Glide pivoting base makes it easy to push around, even for a five-year-old. My young tester also had no trouble turning the vacuum cleaner on and off with its foot-pedal power switch.
The 16-pound Eureka Brushroll Clean comes with all manner of attachments for cleaning under and around furniture plus on stairs and anywhere else you might need to vacuum. All of the tools – the stair and upholstery turbo nozzle, dusting brush, crevice tool and extension wand – attach to the device itself.
There’s no need to keep track of the vacuum’s tools somewhere else, like in a box or bag. Everything stays right where you need it.
The vacuum’s dust cup empties easily. There are no bags to buy, but Eureka recommends replacing the exhaust cover filter every six to 12 months. You should also wash the dust cup filter on a monthly basis.
Eureka was founded over 100 years ago and sells a variety of cannister, cordless and upright vacuums available in major retail stores. The company has been owned by Electrolux since the 1970s. I received a demo product in return for preparing this genuine review.
