Simple, effective and affordable are the best words to describe this vacuum cleaner from Hoover. Rated 4.1 stars on Amazon, the S2220 model is, without any doubt, one of the best options around in its price and power category.
Although it’s not a high end product, it has all it takes to successfully fulfill all tasks and to perfectly clean all surfaces, being resistant and sturdy enough to ensure a proper functioning for years of regular usage.


The lightweight, European style cleaner is easy to manipulate thanks to its shape and dimensions and relatively quiet while operating, thanks to the innovative technology incorporated in this cleaning tool.
The Hoover S2220 is equipped with a 7amp motor, which delivers enough power for effective cleaning of carpets, rugs and bare floors. User-friendly and featuring a modern and fun design, the upright vacuum cleaner is the ideal tool for any type of surface.

Versatility of use

The S2220 vacuum cleaner from Hoover doesn’t impress through its versatility but it does its job perfectly regardless of the targeted surface. The sleek design and delicate shape make it very easy to maneuver while the cleaning head’s dimension and form ensure a deep cleaning even under furniture and in very tight spaces.
Portable and weighing only 10 pounds, the cleaner can turn into an excellent ally for quick cleanups as all you have to do to benefit from its power is to unwind the cord, plug the vacuum in and turn it on, choosing the desired power setting. The on/off switch has three settings: bare floors which turns on the suction mechanism, carpets, which increases the power and activates the brush and off, which turns the device off. As you can see, all you have to do for adjusting the suction power and cleaning speed is to touch a button.

Design and accessories

The stick vacuum is a free standing tool, with a light appearance and a painted high gloss finish. The large rear wheels make the device easy to move around the house and the swivel floor nozzle ensure an easy access to almost any area that needs a quick cleanup. The multi-stage filtration system captures even the smallest dust and dirt particles, while the 20-foot power cord enable you to clean every room without the need of extra cords and without having to worry about the cleaner running out of power.
Requiring minimum space for storage, the vacuum is equipped with a transparent EZ Empty cup for dirt and dust, so you’ll no longer have to invest in dust bags. The cup is resistant and washable, which means it can easily cleaned after each use and the front of the device is transparent, allowing you to see into the dirt collecting chamber during the entire cleaning operation. Although this isn’t exactly the most attractive feature of the Hoover cleaner, it’s very useful as it enables you to see when the cup needs to be emptied without opening the lid

and making a mess all around.


Minimum maintenance is required by this tool to remain perfectly functional in time. Just empty and wash the dust cup regularly, check the filter and change it when needed – not too often, fortunately – and make sure you clean the vacuum with warm water and a soft cloth from time to time, if you store it out in the open. Whether you choose to hand it on a hook or store it in the standing position, this cleaner won’t interfere with your daily activities and won’t affect your room’s decor.


√  The Hoover Flair Bagless Upright Stick Vacuum with Power Nozzle works great on hard surfaces, being very efficient in removing dirt and animal hair.
√  It’s lightweight and easy to maneuver and store, so it’s very convenient not only for people living in larger houses, who need to move the cleaner from one room to another frequently, but also for those living in small flats, as it takes little space for storage.
√  It’s affordable and stylish but provides the same performances and features as more expensive cleaners.
√  Unlike other vacuum cleaners, this one is very easy to drag up the stairs thanks to its weight and dimensions so it requires minimum effort for performing such cleaning tasks.
√  Together with the tool is offered a 1 year full warranty against any damage, so any part or component that is purchased broken or gets damaged during this interval will be replaced without extra costs.


√  One of the drawbacks mentioned by reviewers is the device’s tendency to overheat when used for longer periods and for cleaning large rugs. To avoid this problem, you should only use this cleaner for smaller jobs, such as vacuuming tiles, hardwood floors and small rugs, but not the entire house.
√  Another issue reported by customers refers to the dirt cup’s size, which is considered by some reviewers too small, thus needs to be emptied quite frequently when the cleaner is used for deep vacuuming tasks. However, this drawback shouldn’t outweigh the product’s advantages, as emptying the cup from time to time isn’t such a demanding task.


The Hoover s2220 is a solid, durable and efficient vacuum cleaner, which works perfectly on carpets and floors, removing dirt and debris built over time.
