Hyla Vacuum Review- Pros and Cons
Hyla Vacuum Named for Frog
Hyla Vacuum- What is it?
So, what is a Hyla? You're probably looking for the Hyla vacuum and air purification system, and not the Hyla tree frog for which it was named after, (now you know why there's a frog over there haha!). They actually named it after a frog because the Hyla is considered a green cleaning system. It uses water to essentially create a suction where dirt and particles are then trapped in that same water. Ever go outside after it rains and notice the nice fresh smell? That rain helps to purify the air, smells great doesn't it? You can't hardly find a more natural way to purify your air, or clean for that matter. You can use your Hyla on carpets, hardwood, upholstery, car seats, and you can use it to shampoo! It's a lot like a Rainbow, but better! I bought a Hyla about a year ago, I'm not going to lie they are expensive. Since then I've used mine almost daily and here are some of the benefits!

Hyla Vacuum- Benefits
The benefits to owning a Hyla are numerous. This is a complete home cleaning system. You can clean your floors, curtains, car seats, upholstery and the air while your doing it. Or if it's not time to vacuum you can disconnect the vacuum head and just run it for about thirty minutes to purify the air. You know its working because after you're done and you can actually see the dirt in the water. It's something to behold let me tell you. I had no idea my house was so dirty until I bought one of those. I'm glad to say it's much cleaner now. Then when you get your carpets good and dirt free after a few sweepings you can use the shampooer. I went ahead and got one with mine and we've used it about three times. It is absolutely amazing how much better my carpet looks. When we bought one my mom also bought one with a shampooer, she has white carpet and dogs (terrible combination). She went home and after about a month she used it, carpet looked brand new again.
So, if you couldn't tell, in my opinion this is absolutely one of the greatest vacuums you can own. There are still some more benefits to it. It comes with an array of fragrances, including one called eucalyptus. Now when we got ours we had a baby who was 3 months old. He had just developed a stuffy nose so we immediately got it out and ran the purifier with that fragrance in it. We even added a little extra water into the basin to help humidify the air. It really seemed to help him. He also had colic and would cry and cry at night, same night we used the eucalyptus he was also crying and crying with his colic. Literally with in just a few minutes he was out like a light. We used that vacuum every night to put him to sleep until his colic resolved. We had tried other vacuums in the past but this one worked much better, it has more of a deep sound to it than most vacuums and I'm guessing that's why it worked better. What was even better about it was we also purified the air at the same time!
The Hyla comes with a large variety of attachments too. You might be more familiar with the Kirby or Rainbow vacuum. Well the Hyla is right in line with those (the front of the line if you ask me) if you remember how many attachments they came with. It can become a blower or a sprayer also. It comes with a muffler to decrease the noise if it's bothersome to you, and a whole host of other attachments.

Hyla Vacuum- Is it for you?
So, is a Hyla for you? Well if you couldn't tell by my review I highly recommend it! Actually in all honesty they are not cheap. But this is a vacuum with proper care and maintenance every once in a while could last you a very long time. It could be the last vacuum you ever buy. They are very durable and built to last. My mom has friends who have had theirs for years and years. You can get cheaper alternatives, but are they as good? I don't know, what I do know is that this one is great. I have read a few complaints out there just like with any product. Most were complaining that the water would stink. Well of course, it's full of dirt! You do have to dump the water right away. If you don't dump it, it gets stagnant and very smelly. The original asking price they started at when we bought ours was $3200. Don't pay this much!! Haggle with them! Even though I'm not at liberty to disclose what I bought mine for (I signed a paper saying I wouldn't) it was much less than that. If you aren't comfortable haggling with them get a friend or relative who is over to do it for you and shoot them very low at first.
So if you decide to get one I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised, if not absolutely elated! If not, well keep it in the back of your mind in case your ever in the market for a vacuum/air purifier again. I hope this was informative and good luck!
