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.

Filtration system

Several people may be flat out shocked to find

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


The Hoover Wind Tunnel uses 3M vacuum bags that

feature full HEPA filtration in a 6 step process

to ensure that dust, pollen, and other triggers

remain in the bag and don’t make it back into

your home or into your air. This vacuum

cleaner also offers an easy to read indicator

that will let you know when the bag is full.

The bottom line

The Hoover Wind Tunnel is a great vacuum cleaner,

and is one of the best you can buy. It is a

great choice for removing asthma triggers

from your carpet and floors as well as bedding

and other furniture. It is also very easy to

use and has plenty of power to spare.

The embedded dirt finder can be the best friend

of an asthma sufferer very fast. It the

features aren’t enough to make you a believer,

the vacuum is also rated #1 in several magazines,

which proves hand down that this vacuum is

more than worth the purchase.
