Deep-clean your kitchen floors with this cordless 2-in-1 wet/dry vac — and save $135 (over 30% off) for one more day

The virally popular cleaning machine of your dreams is only on sale for a few hours more during Amazon's Big Spring Sale.

Recently I've been binge-watching the excellent Netflix series Atypical. In one episode, someone drops an entire 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 from something like a Tineco wet-dry vacuum — and this one's on super sale.

Got hard floors? This handy vac will suck up your toughest spills. It's also a hand-vac, great for getting in between those couch cushions and the like.

$315 at Amazon

Why is this a good deal?

This appliance 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 $315 for one more day during the Amazon Big Spring Sale. This is the most affordable this vacuum's been since Black Friday.

Why do I need this?

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 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 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.

What reviewers say:

With more than 3,000 five-star reviews, this vac is an Amazon gem, especially considering this incredible limited deal. Some shoppers have been hearing about it for some time, and most who've taken the plunge found that it's worth the hype.

"When this came, I had just steam mopped the night before," one five-star reviewer wrote. "Ran it once and holyyyyy nasty water!!! This thing is 10000% worth it."

Another shopper whose husband was a bit hesitant after seeing the original price (it wasn't on sale when they purchased it), admitted that her hubby was converted after seeing how well it cleaned their floors. "This has made it immensely easier and quicker than I ever could have dreamed," the impressed shopper said.

If you have a "busy home," this reviewer said this is a product you'll be so glad you bought. "With small children and lots of animals running around, keeping my floors clean has always been a challenge, but this vacuum has made my life so much easier," said this reviewer.

Some shoppers noted, though, that the biggest — and often the only — issue they've had is that the battery drains pretty quickly, but they double-down that the power is next-level. "All in all, I assume it is because it's operating at a more powerful rate," one shopper wrote. "It still covers most of my bottom floor floor, so not a huge issue."

If you'd prefer a more simplified option, there's also a higher-end Tineco model that doesn't have the hand-vac option, instead offering more suction power, larger water tanks and, best of all, longer battery life. You can get the Floor One S5 (non-Combo version) for $300 with the on-page coupon — also on sale for one more day!

This is the more powerful of the two wet-dry vacs, but it doesn't have the hand-vac option.
