Sweeping just got a little bit easier with EyeVac

I love a clean house. A clean house makes me feel happy and relaxed. Sadly, getting the clean house that I enjoy so much means that I have to clean. Blah!

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t like cleaning. I know some people find it fun and relaxing – not me. I just like that after effect of cleaning – a squeaky clean home.

I have an almost 18 year old and a 20 year old. Cleaning is not there thing either, as the piles of laundry all over the place proves. I have to nag them often to tidy up their rooms. Most times I just do it myself. Their idea of cleaning and my idea of cleaning are apparently two different things. Ha Ha.

One room in the house that I seem to constantly be cleaning is where we keep the litter box. We have five cats and a HUGE litter box. We clean the litter box out easily a dozen times per day. We have to. We don’t want our home to smell like cats. It’s not a pleasant smell at all.

I pride myself on a non-cat smelling home. When we had our home on the market years ago we had real estate agents and neighbors come into our home to let us know if they smelled that we had cats. They all said “no.” Even one of the agents said if it wasn’t for the cat tree they no one would know we had cats (our cats run and hide from strangers in the home).

Kitty litter is the worst – and I do mean the WORST! It gets everywhere. The cats track is all around our home. Thankfully most of it stays where the litter box is. When they jump out of the box most of the litter falls on the floor near the litter box.

I sweep all the time. We sweep every time we clean out the litter box (so at least a good 10-12 times per day). We sweep everything into a pile, sweep it into a pan, then dump it in the garbage can. If we’re lucky all the litter stays in the pan when we toss it into the garbage. Sometimes some falls out and we have to sweep all over again. It seems like a never ending process.

I was recently sent to review a cool product that takes the chore of sweeping and makes it a whole lot easier. It’s called the Eye Vac. It’s an interesting name for a very useful product.

The Eye Vac is a sensor activated stationary vacuum. It’s not very big in size and it has a modern shape and design to it so it’s much more appealing to look at then a broom and dust pan. Best of all, you can keep Eye Vac out all the time. There is no need to tuck it away in the closet (unless you really wanted to).

Eye Vac has been featured on multiple national televised programs like Rachael Ray, Tony Danza, and The 9 Salon. In addition, Eye Vac has been featured on reputable social media platforms like Business Insider, Odditymall, and Drool’d gathering over 20 million views combined and hundreds of thousands of interactions.

I was excited to try the Eye Vac. ANYTHING that could make the task of sweeping up the litter, pet hair and crumbs quicker and easier I’m all for.

To use Eye Vac simply sweep the debris in it’s direction and Eye Vac will suck it all up. There is no need for a dust pan. No need to bend over to sweep things up, and no risk of spilling things when you try and empty the dust pan in the garbage.

The Eye Vac is small and not an “eye sore” to look at.

Eye Vac has a powerful 1000 watt motor that helps to remove 100% of pet hair, dust, litter and other debris quickly and easily.

In addition to keeping your floors clean, this awesome cyclonic vacuum has a HEPA filtration system that helps to not only clean your floors, but also to help clean the air you breathe. It doesn’t spit dust and debris back into the air after it sucks it up. It’s all confined inside the unit.

There was nothing to do to set Eye Vac up. You literally just plug it in, turn on your desired setting and you are good to go.

Easily accessible controls at the top of the unit.

We originally had ours set to “automatic” which means the moment you get near it with the broom and debris it will suck it all up. When you have cats you have pets you might want to rethink that mode. Our cats would set it off constantly – even in the middle of the night. They were all terrified of it so as soon as it would go off they would scatter. To fix this problem we don’t use the automatic mode. Instead we use the mode where it turns on only when we want it to. It still works just as great for us and our cats don’t have to get freaked out. They have since got used to the noise, but we don’t use the automatic mode so it doesn’t turn on during the night when they walk past it.

We love our Eye Vac. It makes cleaning up after the cats much easier and a lot quicker. I wouldn’t mind having a second unit for our kitchen to help keep the room free from crumbs and “tumbleweeds” (little puffs of pet hair that roll across the floor).

This brief video (below) shows Eye Vac in action. I wanted to take my own video but I couldn’t get a decent shot of it sucking up the litter and other what nots when we swept.


If you have pets, Eye Vac is a must. It’s also great for crumbs, dust, and all those other little things that make your floors dirty.

Eye Vac is available in different styles and colors, and range in price from $109 – $129. It might seem a little pricey, but for the convenience it’s well worth every penny if you ask me. It’s been a Godsend and we are grateful for the opportunity to review it.
