Parents would also attest that life with kids is hectic. From extra laundry to bathing, cooking, driving, schoolwork, enrichment classes and small crises – life gets chaotic and manic in repeat mode. Our time as working parents is scarce, yet we have to carve out precious time for chores because at the end of the day, we want to come home to a clean and tranquil home where everyone is healthy and happy.
This is especially important for families, like ours, with a young toddler crawling about, eagerly exploring his environment with his senses of touch and taste. Having the right tools to maintain a clean and tranquil home can really make a world of difference. Since household chores are usually done in and around our time with the family, it would be ideal if the vacuum cleaner we own is able to work silently without being too obtrusive.
Enter the premium class Bosch In’genius ProSilence Vacuum Cleaner. This made-in-Germany vacuum cleaner is the latest and top of the range vacuum cleaner from home appliance giant BOSCH. The Bosch Intelligent AirFlow System consumes 30% less energy than ordinary vacuum cleaners as it uses compressor technology. Furthermore, the integrated Air Safe System operates on a filter technology that retains dust and prevents dirty air leakage, keeping the air 99.99% clean. Perfect for kids prone to sensitive skin or allergies!
When we first turned it on, the In’genius ProSilence Vacuum Cleaner’s impressive 59 db of noise felt like the quietest vacuum cleaner in the market. The soft and muted whine, even on maximum power, actually allows family activities and phone conversations to go on normally with the baby sleeping soundly through his nap when I was vacuuming! We’ve even used it on an early Sunday morning before hosting a gathering without disturbing our neighbours. Unbelievably quiet vacuuming, pure power without the roar!

In addition to the super-silent feature, we discovered that the In’genius ProSilence has other intuitive features which makes vacuuming lesser of a chore for all busy parents:
- It moves around easily in its mere 6 kg frame (one of the lightest in its class) aided by 4 soft coated castors. Mommies, Daddies, and even domestic helpers can now vacuum without fear of scratching the fragile parquet or wood laminate flooring.
- The retractable cable stretches to an amazing 15m allowing us to vacuum a larger area from a single power source (saves time and effort of bending up and down to change power sockets!). It also comes with the Transparent AirBumper™ which protects furniture (especially legs of dining table and chair), door frames and walls from accidental dents.
- Apart from the common selection of nozzles, the In’genius ProSilence provides an additional hard floor nozzle developed for dedicated cleaning of floors with crevices and gaps like tiles and floor boards. Having this dedicated hard floor nozzle allows users to vacuum outdoor spaces like car porch or balcony without mixing with interior usage.
- The ergonomic vacuum tube itself is easy to use. You can extend and shorten the tube iwith a push of a small button with your thumb and it locks to the desired length firmly. If you need to change the nozzle head, simply press the soft polymer joints (no more fiddling with small aluminum buttons like conventional vacuum cleaners).
- The Bosch In’genius ProSilence is aesthetically pleasing, with only one large knob at the top of its glossy red minimalist exterior. The single knob integrates both the ON/OFF switch and the variable power selector (with different controls for furniture, rugs and hard flooring clearly defined). This, together with its QuattroPower System helps users conserve energy and the environment. One of the best vacuum cleaners which offer top performance at reduced power consumption. Impressive!
Every parent works hard to provide a better life for the family. Our spouse and our children deserve to have the best environment for them to rest, grow and play. Bosch recognizes shifts in consumer lifestyles and builds technology for life to meet the ever-increasing needs of busy, modern parents. With the Bosch In’genius ProSilence Vacuum Cleaner, we can have the best of authentic German technology for our families, right in our homes.
