The MetroVac vac is a sleek jet black handheld corded vacuum cleaner with a unique design to please ordinary vacuum cleaners. For example, it is made of steel with a long steel hose as opposed to the plastic handheld vacs.
The MetroVac features some fancy attachments that help in its utility. One thing that stands out is the classy look. This might be attributed to the unique design that doesn’t really conform to the norms of a handheld vacuum as we know it. This MetroVac review examines its usability and features to help you decide if this is the best vacuum cleaner for you.
The MetroVac is made mostly for indoor cleaning. This is due to the lack of a rechargeable battery. From doing a test-run with the product, we found that cleaning debris off the carpet was almost as good as the other vacuums, but when it came to hardwood, the MetroVac took almost twice the number of passes it would take an average vacuum cleaner. This means that when cleaning using the MetroVac, customers would need several attempts to vacuum the same area to achieve the desired results.
The performance is below standard when it comes to cleaning after pets. Pet hair is stubborn and requires a really good vacuum to get it off the fabric. The MetroVac was only able to remove a third of the hair found on the surface. Therefore, for pet users, this might not be the best vacuum cleaner for you.
The body, together with the hose of this vacuum, is made of stainless steel. This makes it one of the most durable vacuum cleaners available in the market today. Despite the material used to construct the body, the vacuum still weighs an impressive four pounds. This is way less than what some of the handheld vacuums made of plastic weight.
The MetroVac has a 500-watt motor that is powered by the mainline electric circuit, it features a long cord for users to get some more distance and freedom of cleaning away from the plug. Due to its powerful motor, the MetroVac Vac makes a bit of noise when in use, which makes it non-recommendable for people looking to clean quietly.
The product comes with a variety of accessories ranging from a brush nozzle to a hose nozzle that allows for the user’s flexibility when using the vacuum. The accessories, however, lack a crevice device. This would have come in handy, especially seeing that the vacuum’s performance in removing debris trapped in crevices is wanting.
The MetroVac has a very simple and easy-to-use website. Customers can contact the support team via an online form, the toll-free phone number (800 822 1602) and email address ([email protected]).
Furthermore, the site features a detailed FAQ section which discusses over a dozen common queries from returning an unused item to payment methods accepted to pricing.
However, the company outdoes itself on the generous five-year warranty given to its customers. This is way above the average one-year warranty given by other big-name brands in the industry.
The MetroVac Vac N Go AM-2B is aesthetically excellent with the unique model and the sleek jet black appearance. On their official website, it is purported to be one of the best handheld vacuums in the market, and while it has slightly fallen short on occasion during our testing, the results were still satisfactory. Being a corded vacuum with a 500-watt motor, it did generally outshine the other vacuums in terms of suction power. However, we would not recommend it to pet owners as the product did not remove as much of the pet hair as desired.
Generally, if you are looking for a great and unique design, durability, light weight, and a long power cord, then this is the vacuum cleaner for you.
