Inventor Trevor Lambert established Enhance Product Development in 2001 due to his frustration over existing invention service providers. His goal at Enhance is to provide inventors, entrepreneurs, start-ups and small to medium sized consumer product companies, effective services such as industrial design, engineering, prototyping and manufacturing, all with improved transparency. He has been responsible for developing and licensing products that are sold in stores such as Walmart, Target, Lowes, Bed Bath & Beyond and many more. Lambert has generated royalties in the millions of dollars for his clients.
VaBroom is one of those success stories. VaBroom is a powerful combination of broom and vacuum cleaner, effectively eliminating dustpans and the need to bend over to sweep up the dust and dirt. Enhance Product Development has initiated Kickstarter campaigns for many of its products. In this case, the campaign quickly reached its funding goal, ending with $74,494 from 1,378 backers.
Initial manufacturing in China and fulfillment of orders was hampered by the Covid pandemic, but backers were given continual updates and all orders were filled by the end of 2020. In October 2021, VaBroom was improved by adding a rubber tip to the vacuum nozzle to protect hardwood floors from scratching.
Operating the VaBroom is simple. The debris is swept into a pile or straight line, and then the vacuum is started by simply tilting the nozzle and touching it to the floor. VaBroom comes in four pieces, already fitted with a rechargeable lithium powerpack. According to Ashley Abramson in a review written on Apartment Therapy Newsletter in February of 2021, it’s “super-easy to put together.” VaBroom comes with a high-speed charging cable and a 1-year warranty. It can be purchased through the website, on Amazon and at numerous stores including Lowes, Target and Walmart.
