VaBroom | Eliminate Dust Pans For Good

$74,494

1,378



 Dustpans are dirty, ineffective and frustrating. Everybody has one and NOBODY likes it! To us, they are the enemy. That’s why we invented VaBroom!

No more annoying dustpan lines or bending over. With VaBroom, just sweep into a pile or line. Then tilt to the side, and the the pressure activated switch on the nozzle turns on the vacuum power! That's right, just suck up dirt and debris and then drop it in the trash.

It's that easy! Just Sweep, Suck and SEE YA! 

VaBroom is lightweight, but POWERFUL!  So we ask ourselves, will it suck?  

 Step 1.  Sweep 

Step 2.  Suck 

Step 3.  Eject into trash. See-ya! 


Overview:

Capacity

VaBroom can hold approximately 1 cup of debris at a time. That's about 2,367 Rice Krispies®! 

Power Source

VaBroom is powered by four (4)-AA batteries. On average, get over 500 uses per charge!

Motor and Impeller

VaBroom boasts a 14,000 RPM motor with specially designed impeller to create powerful suction while remaining lightweight.



Our Design Challenge: 

Create a lightweight cleaning tool with built-in powerful suction, that effectively eliminates the need for a dustpan

 Product Testing:  

The nozzle design evolved from sequential testing to maximize suction and ease of use.  Additionally, we tested numerous combinations of motors, impellers and power sources to dial-in the best solution while keeping VaBroom lightweight.

 Refinement:  

Once the proper function was achieved by our engineers, our industrial design team then completed an iterative approach at refining VaBroom.  Customer surveys were completed with hundreds of participants and improvements were developed based on direct feedback from the user.

Form and Function:

The last step was to make VaBroom beautiful.  Now that function had been maximized, we wanted to give VaBroom a modern, sleek look -- again, based on feedback from hundreds of users, we arrived at our current colorways, textures and finish.  



Welcome to Enhance Product Development, the creators of VaBroom. Here is where we work each day, coming up with unique solutions to some challenging problems. You might be asking, who is Enhance? Well, within our team you'll meet dog lovers, little league coaches, wedding DJs, beer connoisseurs and karaoke rock stars.  

Though we come from varied backgrounds, one passion we all share is a love for innovation. At the heart of that passion is a drive to develop meaningful solutions that resonate with our customers. We are curious, inquisitive, analytical, quirky, and sometimes a little edgy. We enjoy the open collaboration with our clients and tend to push the boundaries of conventional thinking. Our focus is to offer cost effective solutions with intrinsic value that create results.

Lastly, it is our enthusiasm that truly sets us apart. We actually love what we do and look forward to putting that enthusiasm to work for you, our backers!  

So from all of us, we thank you for considering backing our project and we will be providing you with updates on our progress in the weeks and months ahead!

We need you! And no, we're not just saying it. We really need your help. Without your support we can’t start the production of VaBroom and tie up the last loose ends in development. We have been working hard to create the best product possible and we want to release it to the world ASAP! We have finalized the prototype and now we need your help to get the production volumes up to get the prices down. It’s that simple! 




Risks and challenges

When VaBroom gets ready for production, there most likely will be some minor changes to improve the final product (probably because of your feedback). But just to be clear, these minor changes will be for the benefit of you, “the Backer”!

Sometimes things happen, things that are out of our control: a supplier knocks over our shipment during transport or a machine breaks down, etc. This could cause a delay. One thing we will definitely do from the beginning to the end is to keep you posted on all developments, positive or negative, we will let you know!
