Recently I've been binge-watching the excellent Netflix series Atypical. In one episode, someone drops a gallon of milk in the kitchen, resulting in moo-juice going everywhere. Someone else grabs a roll of paper towels, but let's face it: That kind of spill is going to need real cleaning.
Something like a Tineco wet-dry vacuum. This thing handles both wet and dry messes, and it doubles as a hand vac. Regularly $450, the Tineco Floor One S5 Combo can be yours for $360 when you apply promo code PRDEALS5C at checkout. This is only the second discount ever for this product, and it's the largest on record. (Previous best deal: $382.)
At first glance, the Floor One S5 looks like a fairly traditional upright vacuum, but it's really more of a floor washer. In place of the usual brush-type roller you see under most vacuums is a solid, fuzzy roller designed to seriously scrub a hard floor.
The Floor One employs two tanks: One that holds clean water (and a dash of Tineco's cleaning solution) and another for the dirty water that gets sucked up.
But this is a hand vac, too: You just push a button to release the upper part, then snap in a crevice tool or 2-in-1 brush tool. (These items reside in a standalone storage tray when not in use.)
The vacuum itself docks in a charger/stand that also allows for self-cleaning, again with the push of a button.
I recently got the chance to test-drive the S5 Combo, and here's what I can tell you: It works really well on wet or sticky floors, but it's kind of a complicated device — at first, anyway. There's just a lot going on here. For starters, there's a companion app — yes, this vacuum has Wi-Fi — that can provide maintenance updates and cleaning reports, but do you really need that? I say skip it.
I also had a hard time figuring out the various status indicators on the digital display, which indicate things like eco mode and dirt monitoring. Call me old-fashioned, but I find that stuff superfluous. Just suck up the spilled milk and be done with it, vacuum!
Even so, if you have a little kids, pee-prone animals or other liquid-mess creators, there's no question the S5 Combo is a great tool to have on hand. And the hand vac is a superb addition.
Already own one of the latter? There's a higher-end Tineco model that doesn't have the hand-vac option, instead offering more suction power, larger water tanks and longer battery life. You can get the Floor One S5 (non-Combo version) for $400 (save $100) with promo code PRDEALS5.
