Oreck Corporation, a longtime leader in the homecare industry, announces that one of its newest breakthrough cleaning products, The VersaVac™, has won the Innovation Award at the 2013 Housewares show.

“The IHA Innovation Awards recognizes creatively designed products being introduced at the International Home + Housewares Show. For 2013 the judges chose to recognize the Oreck VersaVac Full Size Bagless Vacuum & Steam Mop as the most outstanding new offering in the category of Floor + Carpet Care. Our congratulations to Oreck on being recognized for their work in bringing this new product to market,” says Perry Reynolds, VP Marketing + Trade Development for the International Housewares Association.

The Oreck VersaVac™ is a 2-in-1 cleaning system consisting of a bagless upright vacuum cleaner that is also a steam mop. Both functions — vacuuming and steaming — feature the full power, durability and ease-of-use for which Oreck products are known. The multi-functional VersaVac™ is designed to save consumers cleaning time and can eliminate the need for multiple cleaning tools.

“We were excited to showcase VersaVac™ at the Housewares Show and how it delivers the 2-in-1convenience of a bagless upright vacuum and a steam mop — both fully powered — for a hassle-free, multi-surface cleaning experience like no other product!” says Chris Paterson, Oreck’s global director of product innovation and design.

VersaVac™ is a full-powered bagless vacuum cleaner, plus a steam mop in one, effectively a 2-in-1 cleaning system that functions on both carpeting and bare floors. With an on/off brushroll, users can quickly transition from one flooring type to another—all without going back to the broom closet. The 1400 watt steam mop has adjustable steam levels for any sealed floor need*. Both the bagless, easy-dump canister and water tank can be removed and re-inserted with just a “click” of a button.

The versatile VersaVac™ can eliminate the need for the multiple floor care products (brooms, dustpans, buckets and mops) that are usually required to maintain most bare floors. Changing from vacuuming to the steaming/sanitizing** function is quick and easy; simply snap on the steam tray and washable pad, add water to the removable water canister and turn on the steam dial to the desired setting. VersaVac™ features a 30 foot cord for a cleaning range that extends to multiple rooms.
