Philips PowerPro Aqua Cordless Vacuum and Mop Review

Daddy has been having fun playing with his new Philips PowerPro Aqua Cordless Vacuum and Mop this week. As I haven't really had a chance to have a try I will hand over to Daddy who will tell you all about it. 

Unboxing the PowerPro Aqua
My least favourite housework job is the hoovering and mopping, as it takes so much time, and using two separate devices seems to make it longer and more difficult.  We currently have a really good hoover and a steam mop that keeps the house clean when you can get round to doing it. 

Introducing the new Philips PowerPro Aqua - a cordless vacuum and mop that aims to save you time, make the job easier and be more versatile than a standard hoover and mop would be. 

The first thing that I was surprised at was the overall weight of the PowerPro Aqua. Its so light.  You can see in my unboxing video and review that even Little J, who has just turned 3, can use it.  With it being so lightweight i immediately thought there would be no power or very little suction.  However, Philips have done a great job in proving me wrong as the power from the PowerPro is really there and the suction is great. 

Setting the power pro aqua up was really easy, and needed no technical knowledge at all. The instructions are all pictures, and are easy to follow so that you can be ready to go in minutes.  My PowerPro had charge in already so that I could get started straight away.  The standard charging time is 5 hours, and you get around an 40 minutes worth of power for it. I have never owned a cordless hoover or mop before and honestly the versatility and flexibility you get from cordless is amazing.  I really did get excited about mopping the house! 

The hoover is easy to empty, just a small clip and the chamber can be emptied out. You can also clean the filters just in water from the tap - so nice and economical from Philips.  The mop pads are designed to last for six months, and you get two in the pack, so a years worth of mopping included.  You can order more from the online store should you wish to. 

The second major surprise was how good the mop turned out to be, you can see from the video that the mop cleans a sticky piece of dirt from the floor with 2 - 3 simple strokes of the mop. No effort is required and it leaves your floors really clean.  This is all managed without leaving any excess water on the floor surface so drying time is also saved. 

All in all, a job that used to take approximately 2 hours from start to finish with my old hoover and steam mop took me just 40 minutes with the Philips PowerPro aqua.  Now think of that in terms of what you can do with the saved time and you can really see the value for money.  Not only is time saved but the job actually felt pretty effortless compared to what it used to seem like. 


TechSavvyDad says  

 What Went Well 

Filters 90% bacteria and allergens

Suction Power
Cleanliness of floor after mopping

 Even Better If

The battery life was a little longer - you get just 40 minutes from a full charge on high power setting.


So - In summary if hoovering or mopping or both aren't your most favourite pastime than I would strongly recommend the Philips PowerPro Aqua.  You won't be disappointed 

You can find out more about the Philips PowerPro Aqua by visiting Philips and also it is available to buy online at Amazon
