Swiffer is out with a new, improved SweeperVac which has a Double-Action clean.  Not only does it have the dry cloths that Swiffer is known for to trap the smaller dirt particles, but it also includes a small vacuum to pick up bigger items while you’re sweeping.  I recently had the opportunity to try out the Swiffer SweeperVac, courtesy of P&G and My Blog Spark.  We have a lot of linoleum flooring on our bottom floor & it is literally impossible to keep clean, especially with a very messy toddler {she’s in that stage of flinging her food constantly – can’t wait till we’re past this stage!}  So, I was eager to give this product a try!

I have to say that I love the convenience of the product – you need to charge it overnight & then it’s good to go! The best feature is the fact that you don’t need to have it plugged in – it works just like any other Swiffer floor product & you  can take it anywhere. It’s fairly lightweight & easy to manuever around corners & getting in tight spots that your vacuum may miss. When you’ve filled up the canister, it’s just a few simple steps of pushing a button, pulling the canister out, dumping & set back in place.

As far as how well it cleaned, I felt that it worked well with the smaller items (dirt, pet hair, small food particles) but it was a little harder with the larger food particles that my toddler is often throwing on the floor. There were some items that it left behind that I still had to pick up with a cloth or sweep up. But, overall,  it picked up the majority of items on the floor. And it was so nice to not have the broom & dustpan out the whole time!  Sweeping floors is definitely one of my LEAST favorite chores – ranks right up there with folding & putting away laundry (another chore that I find way too tedious).

With the rainy weather we are having, pine needles and dirt are constantly being tracked into the house. It would be great to have something light weight to easily pull out and use to clean the floors.

  48. We have very little carpeting in our house. Three dogs and a cat plus 4 children mean my hardwood floors are usually in need of a good sweeping daily. My broom just doesn’t seem to be able to handle all the pet hair. I’ve heard great things about the Swiffer and would love to give it a try.

  49. I need once because I have a four year old and a two year old, two cats, and a messy husband. Recently needing to relocate because of an emergency situation we had to leave everything behind.

  58. I just moved into a house with wood floors, I use my vacuum on them and I really don’t think its the best idea!! I would love to try the new swiffer sweeper, but its too hard for me to budget it in when I have 2 babies at home and living on one income!!

  59. Help. I need the siffer sweeper vac! :) Why? Because my husband and my son, their middle names are dirt & mudd. They can’t go outside without the dirt & mud jumping onto their bodies.

Don’t even get me started with the animals uhhhh.

  63. I NEED a swiffer sweepervac because I have four small children, a dog, and two parents all living here. I sweep multiple times a day and get really tired of turning around after sweeping only to find more small particles left behind. Having a helpful tool would sure be nice!

  64. I desperately need a Swiffer Sweeper Vac….I have 6 kids 11, 10, 9, 2, 2, and 1!! If that’s not bad enough we have no carpeting. The entire house is laminate and tile. I am forever sweeping and mopping all day long. This thing sounds like it would be very quick and easy to whip out and clean up small messes through out the day.

  65. OMG! I am so excited that swiffer invented this!! I have a dog, 2 cats and a toddler with Hardwoods throughout our house. I have to swiffer everyday at least once!! I think this one would help with picking up those pesky pieces of kitty litter!

  68. i just wanna know if this new swiffer vac’s battery is grealty better than the old one that only lasted 15 minutes at a time before charging for a very long time… i do not own one as my friend does and she complained about the low battery life it had… so i don’t wanna buy the new one if the battery issue is the same for this one

    thank you

  69. I haven’t tested it for long periods of time, but I’ve used it at least 5-6 times to mop my kitchen/dining floors & haven’t had to recharge it.
