Eufy Clean Mach V1 Ultra – a cordless stick vacuum with a mop and steam cleaner function – Australian Review

When the chance to evaluation a stick vacuum got here up, I need to admit I wasn’t significantly enthusiastic on the outset, however now that the Eufy Clear Mach V1 Extremely has to return after a couple of weeks of view, I need to additionally admit that I’m going to overlook it.

The Mach V1 Extremely seems form of like every other stick vacuum I suppose, nevertheless it’s extra — its a mixture of a vacuum, an influence mop and a steam ground cleaner, and it does all of those features actually somewhat properly. In line with the supplies, it’s designed for sealed hardwood, stone, tile and marble flooring, nevertheless it works simply as properly on vinyl / laminate flooring (with a warning), and being a vacuum earlier than else, it does fairly properly on carpets too.

It’s not and not using a few qualms, however general it’s a succesful vacuum combo and one which very practically makes my growing old Dyson stick vacuum look a bit underwhelming.

How’s it look?

On arrival, the Mach V1 Extremely is available in an enormous field (properly, two really) and so whereas this may occasionally make getting it house from the store a bit fascinating (I doubt it might’ve slot in my automobile), it does make for useful play-box for the children. The opposite extra necessary profit is that the Mach V1 Extremely requires no meeting, it comes out of the field able to go.

Merely take away it from the field, cost it for a few hours, fill the clear water tank (even for those who don’t plan on utilizing it, because it’ll pop up a warning message for those who don’t), and verify that the soiled water tank is empty and filter fitted (it’s, out of the field a minimum of).

By way of operation, it’s all somewhat easy actually – you energy it on, choose features and whatnot through the management pad on the deal with. You may let the vacuum run at regular energy, or for those who squeeze the set off, it’ll go to a max operate … it doesn’t sound significantly highly effective nevertheless it appears to do an affordable job on all surfaces.

How’s it go?

The important thing promoting level is the steam cleansing operate. Emitting steam at 110 levels, the Mach V1 Extremely steam operate not solely kills germs, viruses and moulds, nevertheless it’s additionally somewhat good at eradicating cussed marks that an strange vacuum or mop simply wouldn’t contact.

It comes with a warning although – the steam temperature is kind of sizzling, and a few ground varieties received’t take properly to that form of warmth. Whereas our vinyl flooring didn’t thoughts it in any respect – particularly as a result of we didn’t dwell on anyone space – for those who allowed the warmth to construct up, it might soften some glues and waxes which might harm your ground, so watch out.

Most likely the opposite warnings, although, aren’t a lot associated to damaging your flooring, however managing your expectations.

Are there any points?

The Mach V1 Extremely does a reasonably good job at not leaving water everywhere in the ground, however I can’t say it’s excellent – after a steam mop operate, our flooring have been left damp to the contact, and after a little bit of prolonged use, the mop / curler was fairly moist, and even after the steam operate was now not getting used, the curler continued to unfold damp round as I continued cleansing.

The worst bit, although, was that the operate to wash and dry the curler out is form of unintuitive, and requires a little bit of effort. The draw back, for those who don’t do it, is that your curler goes to remain damp, and stink.

Even with cleansing it, the moist curler took on a sure aroma after a few makes use of and whereas it wasn’t overpowering, it actually wasn’t very good. Nonetheless, it was nothing in contrast with emptying the soiled water tank. That was an expertise I received’t describe besides to notice it was deeply disagreeable.

What’s the upkeep like?

Whereas the Mach V1 Extremely is with out query extra intuitive and simpler to make use of than a separate vacuum, moist mop and steam cleaner, you need to anticipate there’s a little bit of upkeep to be executed afterward to maintain the unit clear and tidy, and it is a bit concerned.

With out going into extreme element:

  • Empty the soiled water bucket (yuck) and clear out the waste basket;
  • Take away no matter has constructed up across the curler head or suction tube;
  • Fill the clear water tank once more;
  • Pop the Mach V1 Extremely on the charger and let it run a forty five minute cleansing cycle to cease the curler head turning into gross;
  • Empty the soiled water tank a second time after a few minutes, after which the vacuum will dry out the curler head as finest it may possibly.
  • Final however not least, wipe every little thing out to cease disagreeable smells forming.

My solely different qualm was that the tube between the curler head and the waste basket is form of slim, and has a reasonably sharp bend in it. If you happen to reside in a home with folks with lengthy hair, pets or mud, you may anticipate that that is going to get blocked pretty simply, and also you’re going to be pulling aside the curler head considerably usually to wash it out.

I assumed our home was pretty clear – and it often is – however the vacuum blocked pretty usually and this grew to become somewhat annoying. Particularly so since you didn’t simply expertise an absence of suction, however the vacuum would throw up warning messages always saying the tube was blocked.

Would I purchase one?

Finally, that is the place I made a decision to conclude my evaluation – whereas the Mach V1 Extremely carried out actually somewhat properly as a steam / mop system, as a vacuum it was a little bit uninspiring. It actually labored properly sufficient, however the frequent blocking and lack of suction left me reaching for the Dyson to be used on smooth surfaces the place it did a greater job (and blocked much less).

On arduous flooring, I couldn’t fault the Mach V1 Extremely – it steamed, mopped and cleaned them properly and left surfaces cleaner than they’ve in all probability been in fairly some time. On carpet, although, it didn’t really feel significantly notable.

The opposite word is that whereas it’s good at eradicating mud and different smaller particles, it doesn’t appear to do too properly with different issues that children particularly have a tendency to depart on flooring, like meals, cereal items and the like. In truth, as usually as not, these have been both not picked up in any respect, or have been, after which blocked the unit.

I’m left with blended emotions. As a vacuum, I’ve used higher ones that have been considerably simpler to manoeuvre and did a greater job of choosing up all method of issues. As a mop / steamer combo, I’ve not used something higher and it undoubtedly made a big impact on my flooring.

Finally, I’m left with the identical conclusion as many different evaluations of the identical product – the Mach V1 Extremely is an extremely properly made system and the steam operate could be very efficient at cleansing cussed stains and leaving issues (largely) very clear. It simply dealt with cleansing my complete home with out working flat, and whereas cleansing was a little bit of a problem, it wasn’t unreasonable given what the Mach V1 Extremely really does.

If our home had much less carpets and extra arduous surfaces, I’d be much more minded to purchase one in every of these and hold it, however with our specific wants, a extra highly effective vacuum is in all probability extra helpful right here. So, that might be my suggestion – if in case you have a home with tiles, wood flooring, or related, and you discover mopping and cleansing to be a ache, then that is one very straightforward solution to hold your own home cleaner and prevent a little bit of effort and time.

The Eufy Clear Mach V1 Extremely with steam operate is on the market for $1,499.95 on-line and from main retailers, and you may get it for $1,199.95 with out the steam operate for those who don’t really want it.
