In this busy, modern age, where it’s a lot more common for both parties in a relationship to be working, the last thing anyone really wants to be faced with is a weekend of household chores. The sheer inertia at the thought of having to do the laundry, vacuum the entire house and do general housekeeping is enough to induce a weeklong slumber.
Needless to say, Singaporeans are rather short on time. Considering the fact that we’re known to work the longest hours on average in the world, being efficient about the necessities of upkeeping a home becomes all the more important. This could explain the steep rise in popularity of automated cleaning machines. You know, the ones that make their way around your house floor as if they magically know where all the dirt is.
The problem here is – they don’t. This is why there is still a necessity for vacuums that offer more flexibility. The corded vacuums of old are pretty much a thing of the past, and anyone who has had to deal with the maintenance of older vacuums will attest to the fact that it’s not a simple task either.
This is where the innovation in Bosch’s new Unlimited Cordless Handstick Vacuum Cleaner can really help make cleaning much less of a chore. Here’s why:
Unlimited what? What does that even mean?
Firstly, you’d have realised by now that not having a cord attached to your vacuum means the device needing an internal power source. The Bosch Unlimited gets its name because it’s the only cordless vacuum in the market that can claim to have an infinite runtime.
“Ok look, if it’s running on a battery, there is no way it can run for an infinite amount of time.”
Yes, you are absolutely right. We’ve not discovered Vibranium (or Wakanda for that matter) yet. But what Bosch has managed to create is a quick charger that is able to charge a second battery at the same rate that the first one is consumed when vacuuming. What this means is that you never have to worry about your vacuum running out of power, ever.
Ok, but how does that help me save energy?
There’s really no point talking about a device saving energy if it isn’t efficient in what it does. What the Bosch Unlimited does really well is it combines its powerful rapid-rotation DigitalSpin motor together with the innovative TwinBrush™ – a brush attachment with both hard and soft bristles, allowing for the thorough cleaning of a variety of surfaces simultaneously.
This efficiency doesn’t just help to save on the energy used, but also reduces the time it takes to get everything in your house sorted out. Not to mention you’re able to efficiently clean your house with minimal noise, and not have a conversation with your significant other as if you were in a club.
Is this really going to be sufficient to clean my whole house?
Remember those smaller handheld vacuums that you used to hit tough spots that your bulky corded vacuum couldn’t reach? Well, the Bosch Unlimited is also able to easily detach from the main unit and turn into a handheld spot cleaner, with or without accessories depending on your needs. This is unlike some other detachable spot cleaners in the market that require you to snap on something before you can use it as a handheld.
Gone are the days of needing multiple devices to ensure your whole house is cleaned up. You could even use this to clean your car as well, which is certainly something your automated floor cleaner isn’t going to be able to do.
That being said, the vacuum also comes with multiple accessories such a long, flexible nozzle that allows you to hit hard to reach areas in your house. The different accessories ensure that you’re able to fulfil all kinds of cleaning needs with the vacuum.
Also, with the EasyClean system, you don’t have to go back to the days of washing and shaking out a dusty filter. All you really need to do is simply twist the filter to get your vacuum performing at with its optimal suction power again. The device also comes with a standard 2 year warranty.
How do I get my hands on the Bosch Unlimited vacuum cleaner?
At the moment, the Bosch Unlimited will be available for initial release exclusively at Courts outlets from 1 June 2018, with a nationwide launch from 15 June 2018 onwards at the Bosch Experience Centre and major electronic stores. For the initial release, you can even enjoy a special price of $999 when you purchase from Courts (U.P. $1,399).
