I’m Our Circus Ring Master with Help from Hoover!

Hoover helps me be a successful circus ring master!

My days are like your days — incredibly busy juggling a circus which is certainly larger than three rings at this point!

Meet my circus performers:


First, we have Domingo. My partner in crime and our ever brave lion tamer.


Next, we have Jorryn,  the fearless acrobat.


Now, meet Zane — our resident clown.


Finally, there’s Shay: our tiny monkey!



Cute as they may be, they also create some pretty major shows for me to deal with. Spilled food, shredded Kleenex, broken pieces of this and that… don’t even get me started on the cat hair and dust from our busy street!


I could easily spend my entire day doing nothing but cleaning and then start over and repeat it the next day. But that’s not reality. Not only do I need a clean home, I need balance. I need to have time for meals, playing, working, and a thousand other little things.




That’s why I’m excited with this fantastic High Performance Vacuum from Hoover! It is their best bagless upright vacuum and I must say, I am impressed!

Here are the easy carpet settings. Just turn the knob to adjust the height!

hoover vacuum review (1)

 This handy button tells you if anything is plugged! Green means good to go!


It offers fantastic suction to get deeply embedded dirt up easily. While vacuuming, it uses multiple purification filters to help keep the air you’re breathing  healthy. It also boasts a 40-foot cord and 12-foot hose so you can plug it in once and reach a LOT of space instead of constantly changing outlets. I love that this model also has great, rubberized pet tools on it, making it easy to pick up hair without tangling it up in your attachments.


I got such a chuckle out of this video because I can definitely identify with it!

As part of my circus routine, my new Hoover vacuum fits right in! It arrived in a box and was simple to put together! I was able to use it within minutes of receiving it! The night before receiving my new Hoover, I had vacuumed with our old vacuum which is not a Hoover. But I was excited to test out the Hoover so as soon as it arrived, I put it together and got started! I was dismayed at the amount of dirt and hair it picked up off the floor. It hadn’t even been 12 hours since I had vacuumed, which tells me the old vacuum simply wasn’t doing it’s job! I also loved that the Hoover is easy to adjust for your carpet length. I was able to go on our hardwood to our carpet with an easy flip of a button.

  18. Ann Fantom June 17, 2013 at 11:10 am #

    The Hoover Wind Tunnel Bagless Vacuum would help me tame the dirt that my circus animals (husband and daughter) drag in from outside and get all over my carpets.

  19. Mary Beth Elderton June 17, 2013 at 11:41 am #

    We could use a nice vacuum here for our new home! We have kittens all the time and grandkids in flurries!

  20. kim June 17, 2013 at 11:49 am #

    My vacumn is horrible I am constantly taking it apart and trying to make it work right so I think it will tame the dust bunnies and make them go away!

  21. Cheryl June 17, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

    We have a finished basement and currently drag the vacuum down to vacuum the floors–Hoover could help me tame my basement :-).

    One messy toddler to clean up after. A new Hoover would be wonderful. I find Cheerios everywhere!

  24. Tammy Dalley June 17, 2013 at 1:45 pm #

  25. Diana Stanhope June 17, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

  26. Connie Lee June 17, 2013 at 2:58 pm #

    I don’t have any kids to deal with, but my house still gets dusty. I need a vacuum that is easy to use instead of dragging around my heavy canister vac and getting tangled up in the hose and the cord all the time.

  27. Alyson from Starting Over @ The Dirty 30 June 17, 2013 at 5:56 pm #

    It would just be so nice to have a vacuum that actually works. I might actually vacuum for once instead of always making the husband do it:)

  28. Tari Lawson June 17, 2013 at 7:30 pm #

    I have cat hair, dog hair, people hair and crumbs all over. This vacume would be very helpful to eliminate this mess.

  29. Nicole Vosburgh June 17, 2013 at 8:06 pm #

    Hoover would help me clean up the mess left by my 2 year old 🙂

  30. tina reynolds June 17, 2013 at 10:12 pm #

  31. Katie Roch June 17, 2013 at 10:30 pm #

    I have three dogs so the Hoover would help to tame the mess that ends up on the carpets.

  32. Stephanie Robertson June 18, 2013 at 1:44 am #

    It will make it faster to clean up and won’t take as long

  33. lisa lo June 18, 2013 at 1:54 am #

    I have 4 pets! What more can I say?

  34. Lisa Ehrman June 18, 2013 at 3:33 am #

    I’m sure it will pick up after all the circus animals in my house 🙂

  35. yenny June 18, 2013 at 4:38 am #

    Hoover would help tame my circus by cleaning up my carpets! There are always crumbs on them. Ahh!

    My daughter is 4 and this would help clean up all the spills.

  40. PAm June 18, 2013 at 7:40 am #

    My daughter vacuumed the leaves on the balcony with mine needless to say that was a year ago!!!

  41. Mer June 18, 2013 at 7:40 am #

    Well, taming might be a bit optimistic, especially with summer busyness! But it would allow me to keep on top of things

  42. Emily Wells June 18, 2013 at 8:12 am #

    I have a husband, three sons under the age of 9, and a male cat. I’m seriously outnumbered!! I don’t know if it’ll help me tame them, but when I vacuum (I have to daily) at least it’ll drown out the noise around here, lol!

  43. Sara June 18, 2013 at 8:29 am #

    Hoover will help me tame my circus by cleaning the mess a boy and his cat make.

  44. Della Taraska June 18, 2013 at 9:40 am #

    I would tame my circus by cutting my cleaning time in half! 🙂 I could use a new vac mine is on its last leg. :/

  45. MaryAnn Casey June 18, 2013 at 9:44 am #

    I have a clumsy 10-year old. lol

  46. Trina June 18, 2013 at 9:48 am #

    I have a three-ring circus at my house! In one corner, the Ever-Shedding Dog! Followed up by the Incredible Scratch-Post Destroying Cat. And for the main show, the Dirty Boots Wearing Husband! I need a vacuum that can handle big messes — all that hair, cardboard scraps and outside dirt! I hope I win!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 18, 2013 at 1:32 pm #

      I hope so for you too, Trina! Good luck 🙂

  47. connie danielson June 18, 2013 at 9:57 am #

    Well, it would help me because I am not very good at changing bags and i love the hoover brand. thanks for this chance to win! connie danielson

  48. Angela Yeremenko June 18, 2013 at 10:11 am #

    Yes, it would! Thanks for the chance!

  49. Sharon O. June 18, 2013 at 10:33 am #

    Well, I live on a farm/ranch so you know that any vacuum will get a workout around here! Dirt, mud, manure, hay… I could go on and on! Thank you for the chance to win a vacuum that sounds like it can handle it!

  50. Ellen Cumby June 18, 2013 at 10:33 am #

    We are using a vacuum cleaner that we got at a yard sale 30 years ago. It’s falling apart. We need one that picks up pet hair. Thanks for offering the chance to win a new vacuum. God bless.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 18, 2013 at 1:26 pm #

      Good luck Ellen! You’re welcome – God bless you too!

  51. Andrea H June 18, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    Oh man! 3 littles & 2 dogs… perhaps I wouldn’t have to vacuum twice a day! Our vacuum sucks (pun absolutely intended)!

  52. Catherine Campbell June 18, 2013 at 10:54 am #

    Hoover will help tame my circus because my kids have moved back home each with a cat!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 18, 2013 at 12:53 pm #

      Oh boy! What a crazy and wonderful circus that must be!! Good luck Catherine!

  53. Sara June 18, 2013 at 11:23 am #

    I need a new vacuum. Mine is slowly losing suction so it takes twice as long to get the job done.

  54. Tammy S June 18, 2013 at 11:33 am #

    I could use a new vac been years since I bought one . Just say my new place could use one. I try too keep people from wearing shoes in the palce not easy thou.

  55. April Yedinak June 18, 2013 at 11:34 am #

    This vacuum would help me in so many ways. I always have a house full of kids and a cat that sheds (a lot) and my current vacuum is old and weak and I can’t ever find the right size bags, so I have to force them to fit.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 18, 2013 at 12:51 pm #

      I know what you mean April! I don’t prefer vacuums with bags either. Good luck!

  56. Cathy French June 18, 2013 at 12:02 pm #

    My circus includes two hairy kitties…new vacuum would help immensely thanks for the giveaway opportunity

  57. Vicky W June 18, 2013 at 12:13 pm #

    It will of course help tame my circus by getting the dog hair of the floors. Dog is handicapped so only goes out side when needed.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 18, 2013 at 12:49 pm #

      Aww, poor dog! Bless its heart. Good luck Vicky!

  58. angela z June 18, 2013 at 12:33 pm #

    Help pick up all messes from being home from school. summer vacation more friends over to play!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 18, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

      and how crazy at times, right?! Good luck Angela!

  59. Jennifer June 18, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    well we live in the woods with all sorts of nature creeping in at all hours… my dh is a mechanic and my ds is a toddler… oh and 3 free range house bunnies in 500sqft. messy? yes! do we have a vacuum? no! 🙂 this would be awesome!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 18, 2013 at 1:12 pm #

      Oh my! You need this for sure 😉 Good luck Jennifer!

  60. casey russo June 18, 2013 at 1:16 pm #

    I have a 1, 2, and 3 year old… a bit circus-like, let me tell you! They love having snacks in places other than the kitchen, which means we need to vacuum often. However, our cheapie vacuum is not doing the job well at all.

  61. Lee Black June 18, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    This would really help me because our current vacuum is on it’s last legs! Would love to win this!

  62. Paula V June 18, 2013 at 1:54 pm #

    it would definitely keep my floors clean with my dog tracking in and us tracking in. I don’t feel like my current vacuum does a good job.

  63. Susan June 18, 2013 at 3:03 pm #

    I HATE my current vacuum! Please send me this one!!! I have 2 teens and a monster dog, the dirt and dust is awful!!!

  64. Kitty June 18, 2013 at 3:22 pm #

    I’d be able to clean my house better.

  65. Denise Donaldson June 18, 2013 at 5:18 pm #

    it will help get rid of excess dog hair on my carpet

  66. Susan P. June 18, 2013 at 5:58 pm #

    Between the dogs and the cats and the kids – my carpet needs taming!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 18, 2013 at 11:15 pm #

      I hear that! My boys are rough on our carpets for sure! Good luck, Susan!

  67. Thomas Bellamy June 18, 2013 at 7:50 pm #

    By cleaning up my act.

  68. Stoic Kitty June 18, 2013 at 9:24 pm #

    It will tame my circus by picking up all of the clumps of hair that my cats leave behind on my carpet. I fear that they may be going bald, but I have found no bald patches on them.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 18, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

      Our cat seems to shed a lot too.. yet still has lots of hair! Good luck in the giveaway!

  69. jeanette sheets June 18, 2013 at 10:43 pm #

  71. Brynn June 18, 2013 at 11:29 pm #

    Well when you have pets and kids your home can turn into one big hairy circus haha. This would help a lot!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 19, 2013 at 8:32 am #

      Haha, so true! You’ll love the Hoover! Good luck, Brynn!

  72. ANN*H June 19, 2013 at 1:39 am #

    It would help tame my lions is I won. My carpet take a beating when the grandsons here .My vaccum cleaner I have is ancient and doesnt pick up very well

    • Layne Quintanilla June 19, 2013 at 8:30 am #

      Good luck, Ann! I know how messy boys can be! 🙂 The Hoover would help a lot!

  73. Marti B. June 19, 2013 at 1:50 am #

    It might not tame much but the dustbunnies, but those dustbunnies are vicious!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 19, 2013 at 8:30 am #

      Oh, how I loathe dustbunnies! It will do a great job helping get everything clean for you! Good luck, Marti!

  74. Stephanie Larison June 19, 2013 at 2:40 am #

    We have a toddler and a dog, we need the help, lol! It would make clean ups easier for me.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 19, 2013 at 8:22 am #

      Haha!! A toddler and dog probably keep you hopping! Good luck, Stephanie!

  75. Richard Hicks June 19, 2013 at 2:40 am #

    It will help because I will not have to keep going over the same area over and over to get it clean with my old vac.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 19, 2013 at 8:22 am #

      Ugh! That’s so frustrating to spend all that extra time on the same job over and over! Good luck, Richard!

  76. Susan Harp June 19, 2013 at 4:56 am #

    In my circus, I’m the juggler, juggling everything from dishes, to laundry, to vacuuming!!! That is where the Hoover WindTunnel will help me, it will allow me to get the job done quickly and efficiently. I might even have a little ‘me time’ or more time to enjoy with my family!!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 19, 2013 at 8:18 am #

      Mamas deserve some down time and extra time relaxing with their families! Good luck, Susan! 🙂

  77. Peggy Hopkins June 19, 2013 at 10:55 am #

    Hover makes life breathable.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 19, 2013 at 11:59 am #

      Good luck, Peggy! You’ll really love this machine!

  78. Heather Swarthout June 19, 2013 at 11:28 am #

    My current vacuum is awful, and barely does it’s job. The hoover will help me tame my circus by actually cleaning! 🙂

    • Layne Quintanilla June 19, 2013 at 11:58 am #

      Woo hoo for cleaning! That will definitely make life easier! Thanks for entering & good luck, Heather!

  79. Dawn k June 19, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

    We have lots of pets…and they shed!

  80. Cindy Brickley June 19, 2013 at 3:45 pm #

    If you only knew how bad I need this. My dog 1 of 3 is the most hairiest and stinkiest dog I’ve ever known. He has ruined three of my vacuums so far. I have to clean his hair out 3 to 4 times for every room I vacuum. And the big galoot gets on the couch and chair and that is just hair city. Please, I want and need to win! Pick me Mr. Rafflecopter! Thank you for the great giveaway and post review.

  81. Heather June 19, 2013 at 9:47 pm #

    i could really use a new vacuum! the one i have now isn’t working as well as it used to so i have trouble keeping up with my girls messes!

  82. karen June 19, 2013 at 9:55 pm #

    The easier the better, this vacuum looks and sounds wonderful! I love anything that can help make my cleaning time faster and maybe even a little fun in the process. Who wouldn’t want to push around a red, shiny, brand new vacuum? I bet my kids would start helping….maybe.

  83. Cheryl Rahkonen June 19, 2013 at 10:20 pm #

    A Hoover could certainly be a great help around this zoo. My husband, daughter and her two sons, and I share our house with 2 dogs and a cat (most of the time). But my daughter is always catching feral cats and bringing them in or some poor lost puppy. My hardwood and tile floors look like they are carpted due to all the hair we have to clean up every day. A good vacuum cleaner certainly would be put to the test at my house. And I also could use the Hoover as a pet deterrent. The dogs are terrified of a vacuum cleaner so I could set it in the kitchen to keep the food thieving guys at bay. I wish it would work on the cat but nothing scares him.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 21, 2013 at 4:17 pm #

      lol Oh Cheryl, I feel your pain! Good luck!

  84. Lu June 20, 2013 at 12:29 am #

    It’ll help with dog hair.

  85. jennifer aikens June 20, 2013 at 6:22 am #

    we just bought our first home and it’s pretty much carpet everywhere except for the kitchen. We are deff gonna need a better vacuum cleaner.

  86. Cheryl Chervitz June 20, 2013 at 8:42 am #

    I have 4 dogs that live with me! They bring the outdoors inside with them everyday and my vacuum just doesn’t do the job anymore. Thanks for the chance.

  87. Amy Tolley June 20, 2013 at 10:55 am #

    this would come in handy around my house with all males….my daughter just moved out and got her own place and I gave her mine so this would surely come in handy thanks for this opportunity….

  88. Aimee C June 20, 2013 at 2:07 pm #

    It would be an absolute godsend in our household! I have a 20 dollar dirt devil stick vacuum that is not helpful at all, this would be pure power in comparison…..would love this!

  89. Jackie Wilson June 20, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

    With two dogs, 2 boys ( one almost 4, other just turned 1) a husband which most say is like having another child which in my case is true lol, 1 turtle and 1 tortiose, i think a new vaccum could help a whole lot tame some of my daily tasks get done faster…

    • Layne Quintanilla June 21, 2013 at 1:08 pm #

      Good luck Jackie! You need it as badly as I did! 😉

  90. Maxwell June 20, 2013 at 3:16 pm #

    Super cool! You guys rock!

  91. Simba C June 20, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

    It will help me so many ways too have a great vac that work better then the one we have now. It is over 7 years old it is on last stand

  92. Lisa R June 20, 2013 at 7:21 pm #

    My biggest challenge would be the dog hair from my Lab. This looks like it will do the trick

    good luck everyone

  93. Kamla L. June 20, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

    I’m absolutely sure my vacuum isn’t doing good job. The Hoover Wind Tunnel Bagless Vacuum with all the on board tools would definitely help to give my home a more thorough cleaning and eliminate the allergens my old vacuum has been leaving behind.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 21, 2013 at 12:33 am #

      Good luck Kamla! I hope this works well for you if you are the winner!

  94. Naomi June 20, 2013 at 8:38 pm #

    It will tame my high stepping antics. 😉 It would allow me to have a vacuum upstairs, so I don’t have to carry my heavy vacuum up and down the stairs.

  95. john June 21, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    My child is an adult…but I am not…my mess is truly a three ring circus!

  96. april b June 21, 2013 at 11:54 am #

    I have 4 fur babies in the house, so I need a good vacuum

  97. Daraya June 21, 2013 at 12:06 pm #

    I adopted a german shepherd/lab mix puppy a few months ago and now that she is shedding, her black hair is in clumps all around the house. A new vaccuum would be great! 🙂

  98. Lisa Brown June 21, 2013 at 12:19 pm #

    It will help me remove the dirt and dust my husband drags in with him from the garage.

  99. Pamela Halligan June 21, 2013 at 3:11 pm #

    This Hoover vacuum would definitely come in handy with my circus, which includes three dogs, a cat, and a rabbit – not to mention two kids. Hair and messes are constant around here. Vacuuming is a daily chore. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Love that it will go from hardwood to carpet easily. I have 2 cats and hair is a real problem so having this vacuum would definitely help.

  101. Ellen June 21, 2013 at 4:44 pm #

    Hoover can help me tame my circus by getting rid of all the hair that seems to multiply from our cat and from us. Help us Hoover! 🙂

    • Layne Quintanilla June 21, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

      It certainly feels like it multiplies, doesn’t it!? Good luck, Ellen!

      • Ellen June 21, 2013 at 4:58 pm #

        Thanks! 🙂

  102. jessica edwards June 21, 2013 at 9:50 pm #

    A kid and a cat- would def help

  103. Michelle Moorman June 21, 2013 at 10:39 pm #

    Between my husband, my 4 year old, and one on the way I’ll need that Hoover to vacuum up all the hair I’ll be pulling out of my head. J/K I adore my family and every little convenience helps, even if it’s a new vacuum.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 22, 2013 at 1:36 am #

      Haha! I know what you mean… good luck, Michelle!

  104. cole June 22, 2013 at 1:55 am #

    i’d just vacuum up my cays when they fight lol

  105. courtney b June 22, 2013 at 2:53 pm #

    it will clean up all the huge messes my kids make !:)

    • Layne Quintanilla June 23, 2013 at 9:49 pm #

      Boy, they can really make some messes, can’t they!? Good luck, Courtney!

  106. Becky June 22, 2013 at 8:39 pm #

    I can only hope Hoover helps tame my circus. 🙂

  107. Monique Rizzo June 23, 2013 at 1:42 am #

    It would get me on top of things.
    Thanks for the chance.

  108. Tina June 23, 2013 at 2:05 am #

    Hoover would help me clean up after my circus by vacuuming up all the messes that they make daily and doing it efficiently. Thank you for the awesome giveaway!!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 23, 2013 at 9:40 pm #

      You’re so welcome, Tina! Thanks for entering and best of luck!

  109. Jennifer Marie June 23, 2013 at 9:28 am #

    Hoover would help tame my circus by giving me more time to get the house cleaned. My current vacuum is not working very well and it takes forever to vacuum.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 23, 2013 at 9:39 pm #

      Ugh, I hate that! It’s so maddening to go over the same spot again and again! Good luck, Jennifer!!

  110. Nancy June 23, 2013 at 10:41 am #

    I am not sure it will tame anything but at least we would have a cleaner circus ring:)

    • Layne Quintanilla June 23, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

      YES! An excellent goal! 🙂 Good luck, Nancy!

  111. Lisa F. June 23, 2013 at 11:41 am #

    I definitely have the circus animals, LOL! I need all the help I can get with pet hair!

  112. Courtnie June 23, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    I have 3 pets, and the carpet is always covered in a bunch of hair. My vacuum doesn’t always pick the hair up so well.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 23, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

      Isn’t that frustrating?! The Hoover would definitely help! Good luck, Courtnie!

  113. Helga June 23, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

    I have a 20 ring circus of ducks geese dogs and cats and chickens so Hoover would help around here!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 23, 2013 at 9:36 pm #

      WOW! Sounds like a busy house! Good luck, Helga!

  114. Jeana O'donnell-Murphy June 23, 2013 at 4:02 pm #

    It will help with the lab, teenagers and big kid hubby circus!

  115. tricia June 23, 2013 at 7:30 pm #

      Awesome! Good luck, Tricia! Thanks for entering!

  116. amy pugmire June 23, 2013 at 10:17 pm #

    will help with all the dog hair

  120. Crystal F June 24, 2013 at 11:18 pm #

    It would help with all the little messes my girls make. Messes drive me crazy and crazy doesn’t make a good ring leader. lol Thank you!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 24, 2013 at 11:27 pm #

      You’re welcome! Good luck, Crystal! 🙂

  121. Cynthia Mercado June 25, 2013 at 2:31 am #

    We finally bought our 1st place! We are in need of a new GOOD vaccuum! Between pets, homeschooling and everyday life it will make my days much easier!

  122. laurie nykaza June 25, 2013 at 3:38 am #

    4 cats 3 dogs I could really use this with all the pet hair in the house

  123. Lenora D June 25, 2013 at 8:27 am #

    Our vacuum isn’t even worth pulling out of the closet. It does nothing and smells funny. We could really use a decent one.

  124. Ashley Morrow June 25, 2013 at 8:40 am #

    It will help me clean up after my dog and all the visitors I have at myself.

  125. Hannah J June 25, 2013 at 10:09 am #

    It would replace my broken bissel vacuum

  126. katherine d June 25, 2013 at 10:23 am #

    my husband gets crumbs all over the floor – no matter where he eats – so I need a hoover to clean it up

  127. Jessica T June 25, 2013 at 11:02 am #

    It would help me keep the house clean from 2 dogs, 2 cats, a rabbit, 2 kids and a husband. haha! Love this giveaway, thank you!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 25, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

      Oh goodness.. your house sounds busy! Good luck, Jessica! 🙂

  128. krsyta June 25, 2013 at 11:22 am #

    With 5 kids AND 2 large dogs…i pretty much vaccuum 2x a day! this would really help

    • Layne Quintanilla June 25, 2013 at 2:54 pm #

      WOW! This would really help! Good luck, Krysta!

  129. June S. June 25, 2013 at 2:20 pm #

    I have this 16 year old grey tabby cat that has been shedding like crazy around here lately. Hoover will help to tame that mess! ( I hope)

  130. christine Bierman June 25, 2013 at 2:21 pm #

    It will take less of my time that it takes to clean up hair from my 9 animals!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 25, 2013 at 2:53 pm #

      Oh wow!! You must have a very busy house, Christine! Good luck!

  131. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger June 25, 2013 at 3:40 pm #

    Aside from our own 3-Ring Circus we live on the first floor of a VERY OLD Victorian 3-Flat that we also own… So aside from keeping our own circus from spiraling out of control, we have all the “common areas” to maintain impeccably which includes a huge basement and both a front and back stairway 3 1/2 flights high – and then there is a large front porch with outdoor rugs and furniture which we all use in nice weather (especially because we have NO central A/C!)

    Those this very fine vacuum cleaner would be a real godsend!

  132. Tooth Fairy June 25, 2013 at 6:42 pm #

    This vacuum would be really fantastic to help me with all my * fairy dust * Believe it! The dust in my home sweet home is not imaginary I can see it…

  133. Zabrina Caldwell June 25, 2013 at 9:53 pm #

    This would help me tame the dust in my 3200 sq ft farm house!

  134. joni June 26, 2013 at 1:06 am #

    It would keep my clowns juggling!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 26, 2013 at 10:47 am #

      haha! Good luck, Joni! I hope your clowns keep under control 🙂

  135. Ellen C June 26, 2013 at 11:21 am #

    God has blessed our kids (young adults) with lots of friends that drop by our house off and on so it’s like a circus around here sometimes with their coming and going. Eating and playing video games, etc. A Hoover Wind Tunnel Bagless Vacuum sure would come in handy for our family. Thanks for offering the giveaway! God bless!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 26, 2013 at 9:05 pm #

      You’re so welcome, Ellen! I’m glad that your lives are full of joy! Good luck in the giveaway and God bless you as well!

  137. Maribel F June 26, 2013 at 12:39 pm #

    It would help me with my three little monkeys they leave a mess everyday, and my old vacuum is old i replaced the band almost every 3months this vacuum would be great fingers crossed =)

  138. PamB. June 26, 2013 at 4:05 pm #

    This vacuum would be great cleaning up after two dogs and a toddler. The Hoover is a great unit. Always good to have a spare on hand.

  139. Maureen G June 26, 2013 at 5:34 pm #

    My circus family is an outdoor bunch who doesn’t always remember to leave the outdoors outside! What a joy it would be to use the long-corded Hoover to make our inside ready for the next event.

  140. Gretchen F June 26, 2013 at 6:11 pm #

    A new Hoover will help us clean up after our 3 children and our dog!

  141. kim c June 27, 2013 at 1:51 am #

    This Hoover would help me clean up the tent – suck up all the fur from my 3 cats & a dog!

  142. nicole w June 27, 2013 at 2:43 am #

    It will tame the circus I have going on 24/7 that is full of crumbs and pet fur!

  143. Harmony B June 27, 2013 at 9:51 am #

    It would help me tame my crumb circus, brought to you by my 3 boys

    • Layne Quintanilla June 27, 2013 at 11:18 am #

      Haha, boys definitely make crumbs! Good luck, Harmony!

  144. Mary Williams June 27, 2013 at 11:41 am #

    It will definitely help with pet hair! My current sweeper has seen better days and almost can’t keep up with my chocolate lab’s addiction to getting on the furniture!

  145. Whitney @RambleSAHM June 27, 2013 at 4:01 pm #

    I would help tame my 1 yr. old messes. Like the cereal he spilled this morning!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 27, 2013 at 10:52 pm #

      Oh, I’ve been there, Wendy! More than once! Good luck! 🙂

  146. wendy b June 27, 2013 at 5:08 pm #

    LOL….Having a vacuum cleaner that actually works would be a step in the right direction.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 27, 2013 at 10:51 pm #

      Good luck, Wendy! Sounds like you need this Hoover! 🙂

  147. Ava Chavez June 27, 2013 at 8:14 pm #

    4 boys & a dog…I don’t know if that can be tamed, but it sure would help!lol

    • Layne Quintanilla June 27, 2013 at 10:50 pm #

      Haha, I think any cleaning is an improvement in my house most days! Good luck, Ava!

  149. Ella B June 27, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

    This giveaway will tame the circus of pet fur, toddler tracks, little and big girls’ hair everywhere!

    Will help with pet hair, have a vacuum that has been passed down to us and wires are hanging out and hose don’t work 🙁 Hope I win

  151. Katrina A June 27, 2013 at 11:47 pm #

    Right now I am borrowing a giant Rainbow vacuum. I have to lug it all over the place and put water in it. It’s a pain. Having this Hoover would make it easier and faster to keep our carpet crumb free(I have a 13 month old).

  152. peggy fedison June 28, 2013 at 3:36 am #

    I dont have any pets, but I DO have a 23 yr old animal.. oops i mean son ..who does NOTHING to help me clean this tent. Seriously tho, I am recouperating from esophagus cancer and its surgery and I’ve got a cheap piece of junk vacuum. I have to go over the area over and over and over again. It barely sucks up anything, and since I can’t go back to work, I cant afford to buy a new one. Winning this Hoover would help me tremendously in cleaning this circus tent ehehehehe.. Thank you for the opportunity and you have a beautiful family. God bless you and them .

    • Layne Quintanilla June 28, 2013 at 11:02 am #

      Thank you, Peggy! I will be praying for a quick recovery for you! Good luck in the giveaway!

  153. Jennifer Holovack June 28, 2013 at 8:35 am #

    We recently put carpet in our living room since our little one has started walking..tile floor and clumsy baby do not mix! We have been meaning to get a vacuum and actually looked at a hoover, but something always comes up and we havent been able to afford one.

    • Layne Quintanilla June 28, 2013 at 10:56 am #

      Perfect timing for this giveaway then! Good luck, Jennifer!

  154. Colleen Schilinski June 28, 2013 at 10:25 am #

    I have a dog, so th would tame my whole house.

  155. GDub June 28, 2013 at 10:28 am #

    We need a new vacuum!

    • Layne Quintanilla June 28, 2013 at 10:55 am #

      Good luck! This Hoover would be great for you!

  156. Anna June 28, 2013 at 12:24 pm #

    We have a dog that sheds a LOT!

  157. Dawn June 28, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

    4 kids, 2 dogs and a cat. Need I say more? 😉

  158. Judy S June 28, 2013 at 12:26 pm #

    I could get so much done in a quicker time with this great vacuum.

  159. darlene carbajal June 28, 2013 at 12:50 pm #

    yes in need of a new vacuum!

  160. Dina June 28, 2013 at 3:13 pm #

    I’d help wrangle my circus by cleaning teh stairs!

  161. Stephanie Phelps June 28, 2013 at 3:23 pm #

    I have four very messy boys and a little shedding dog. Hoover will help me get rid of all the puppy hair and the boys messes such as dirt they track in!

    • Layne Quintanilla July 1, 2013 at 9:03 am #

      This will help for sure! Good luck Stephanie!

  162. Bailey Timmoms June 28, 2013 at 3:43 pm #

  164. Julie Simpson June 28, 2013 at 4:08 pm #

    I have Diego the worlds modt beautiful grandson And I have not been able to afford a vacuum since I moved here 4 years ago

  165. Tammy S June 28, 2013 at 4:16 pm #

    With two kids and two cats it is more like a Zoo then a circus. I would love to have a Hoover to help me keep up with them and their messes. It seems like some days all I do is run behind them picking up. Hoover would help a ton so that maybe I wouldn’t have to vacuum every day.

    • Layne Quintanilla July 1, 2013 at 9:01 am #

      This would definitely help! Good luck Tammy.

  166. JJ Caraway June 28, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

    It will help me keep up with the grandchildren’s this & that, LOL Don’t
    mind the clutter, just love those babies.

    • Layne Quintanilla July 1, 2013 at 8:57 am #

      Aww, very sweet. This will help! Good luck JJ.

  167. ky2here June 28, 2013 at 5:11 pm #

    Our 9 room house and our 7 cats lead to lots of cleaning challenges. This would be a great addition to our family.

  168. Jill P June 28, 2013 at 5:35 pm #

    I would help me keep up with my daughters messes.

  169. Susan Broughton June 28, 2013 at 5:55 pm #

    I really need something that will pick up hair from the rugs and Hoover will help me do that if I win

  170. Melanie K. June 28, 2013 at 6:07 pm #

    My circus consists of my husband, son and our crazy cats. It will definitely help tame the hair! I hate having car hair on anything so I’m always sweeping things up. lol

    • Layne Quintanilla July 1, 2013 at 8:57 am #

      Don’t blame you at all! Good luck Melanie!

  171. Holly Thomas June 28, 2013 at 6:16 pm #

    By cleaning up gobs of dog hair!!

  172. susan quackenbush June 28, 2013 at 7:33 pm #

    by helping me clear out the cat hair.

  173. Tina June 28, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

    It will help me tame my circus because when the dust starts to fly, the allergies and asthma kick in. This would help me stay ahead of the dust and the dust bunnies.

  174. Daniel M June 28, 2013 at 8:10 pm #

    don’t know how our cat can always make such a mess

  175. Kim Reid June 28, 2013 at 8:18 pm #

    We have a old vacuum that barely works and it would be great to help clean up with the cats in residence!

  176. rachel rohde June 28, 2013 at 10:07 pm #

    it will help because my vacuum needs to be replaced. we have had it for a long time.

  177. Lacie Lair June 28, 2013 at 10:55 pm #

    I have a two year old.. I think that says it all LOL

  178. Marilyn June 28, 2013 at 11:31 pm #

    It sure would help clean up a lot of the messes they leave behind.

  179. Judy Bradley June 28, 2013 at 11:47 pm #

    Well, the constant performer in this circus is a 2yr old Kelpie who sheds enough to make a new dog every week! This would help me keep the circus ring visible by removing the hair! The non-shedding performers at least pick up their toys (on occasion)!

  180. Gale. mcCarron June 28, 2013 at 11:56 pm #

    Hopefully it’ll get them to clean their own mess!

  181. Deb C June 29, 2013 at 8:44 am #

    Vacuuming up thread snipping would tame my circus.

  182. kim h June 29, 2013 at 10:01 am #

    Three dogs, four grand kids….

  183. LinhC June 29, 2013 at 12:32 pm #

    Ugh, my doggy is shedding and all his fur flying around the house is driving me nuts!

  184. Deborah Mireles June 29, 2013 at 5:35 pm #

    We have a large dog who is currently shedding and people coming in and out all day and night tracking stuff in with them, of course no one has ever heard of taking your shoes off at the door even though ive said it a bazillion times!

    • Layne Quintanilla July 1, 2013 at 8:52 am #

      I understand! No one seems to hear me either! Good luck Deborah!

  185. Teresa Thompson June 29, 2013 at 6:04 pm #

    With 4 granddaughters and a dog it is much needed at our house.

  186. Deb S June 29, 2013 at 6:17 pm #

    I have boys and two dogs. There is always something to vaccum

  187. Leslie L. Stanziani June 29, 2013 at 8:33 pm #

    I have 4 kids,a husband,3 cats and a dog all inside my house.It is like a 3 ring circus at all times esp. since I home school my kids.My house has to be vacuumed at least once a day but most days it is twice.

  188. AmyBond June 29, 2013 at 8:42 pm #

    This would help a great deal with the circus we have going on here, lol! Pet hair flies by on a daily basis!

  189. Margaret Burgess June 29, 2013 at 9:49 pm #

    We need a new vacuum–between mine and my daughter’s hair as well as two long haired cats and a hairy dog–help!

  193. Jaque R. June 30, 2013 at 12:33 pm #

    Hoover will help me tame my circus by making cleaning faster and easier. 🙂 Thank you.

  194. allyson rose becker June 30, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

    It would keep my circus tent clean.

  195. Amanda Sakovitz June 30, 2013 at 2:47 pm #

    My hair seems to shed a lot so that is always on our floors lol. It will also be great to pick up all of our food crumbs

    • Layne Quintanilla July 1, 2013 at 1:21 am #

      This would be great for that. Good luck Amanda!

  196. micheal dale grim June 30, 2013 at 3:51 pm #

    it will help me clean up after my 7 cats!!!

    • Layne Quintanilla July 1, 2013 at 1:20 am #

  197. Tara June 30, 2013 at 4:13 pm #

    Man, it would help me tame all the stuff that comes in on peoples shoes! Even though we mostly leave shoes at the front door, there is still always stuff on the carpet & my vacuum broke!

  198. jenna tomaszewski June 30, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

    My circus includes 4 dogs who shed so I hope to tame the dog fur on my carpet.

    • Layne Quintanilla July 1, 2013 at 12:54 am #

      This would be great for that! Good luck Susan!

  201. Thomas Murphy June 30, 2013 at 6:54 pm #

    It would help with the huge mess my kids and pets make.

  202. Cassandra Eastman June 30, 2013 at 8:27 pm #

    So happy I found your review, we are looking for a new vacuum and I saw a Hoover that looked great but didn’t know much about the brand so this really helped! A hoover would help tame my circus by cleaning up all the messy crumbs and spills left by my toddlers!

    • Layne Quintanilla July 1, 2013 at 12:43 am #

      Sorry Lu Ann! There was a minor issue with some posts on my site. It should be all fixed now.
