Buying a Dyson Vacuum
How To Choose The Right Dyson Vacuum
Why Bagless Vacuum Cleaners?
Bagless vacuums have become very popular in the last few years. They work just a like traditional vacuum, however instead of debris being collected into a disposable cloth or paper bag, it is collected in a dust cup.
Convenience has really driven consumers to bagless vacuums. As there is no need to keep up with restocking your supply of bags, consumable costs are much lower. The bagless vacuum is almost always a great option for pet owners. Dogs and cats that shed will constantly fill up bags quickly, but with the dust cup, you simple put that hair in the trash and keep on cleaning. It truly is the most cost effective way to vacuum your home.
Bagless Vacuum Maintenance
If you’ve chosen to go the bagless route, be aware that all bagless vacuums, including Dyson vacuums, require regular maintenance to keep them running properly. It’s pretty simple stuff, but you will be exposed to dirt and dust so be sure to wear a mask if you are allergic or have other respiratory issues.
Here’s a short list of the basic maintenance on any Dyson vacuum cleaner:
- Empty the bin before it reaches the suggested capacity line.
- Clear away any accumulated debris blocking the intake screen.
- Wash filters every 60 days (be sure to dry completely!)
The Dyson Vacuum Models
Dyson has a wide range of vacuum cleaner models for a wide array of living spaces.
Dyson Vacuum Cleaners for Medium to Large Homes
The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal +Allergy is a great vacuum cleaner for large homes. A large capacity dust bin, high-powered motor and full-sized cleaning head is make it best suited for covering large amounts of square footage.
An aggressive cleaner head with two types of bristles deeps cleans carpets and traps fine dust and hair. This self-adjusting brush head will keep a tight seal to any surface for maximum suction on thick carpet or bare floors. The vacuum also comes with the extra-long pull-out hose and is packed with tools to clean all sorts of surfaces.
The handheld tangle free turbine tool is exceptional at removing pet hair on upholstery. A stiff bristle dusting brush will break up stuck on grime while a soft bristle dusting brush will delicately clean lamp shades and curtains. A combination stair and crevice tool will get into tight corners and clean your stairs. A multi angle dusting brush is superb on bookshelves and fan blades.
The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal vacuum cleaner is also available without the “Allergy” package at a lower price point. The more basic Cinetic Big Ball Animal vacuum is packaged with the tangle free turbine hand tool.
Dyson Vacuum Cleaners for Smaller Homes and Apartments
The Dyson Ball Multi Floor Upright vacuum cleaner is a slightly scaled down, lighter version of the full-size Cinetic Big Ball series vacuums. The Dyson Ball Multi Floor has a slightly smaller dust cup and motor with but has more suction for great aggressive cleaning.
The smaller footprint of the Dyson Ball Multi Floor is perfect for storage in tighter areas. The self-adjusting head assures maximum suction seal to any type of surface just as it does on the larger Dyson Cinetic Big Ball. A combination dusting and crevice tool will handle the small jobs while the upholstery and stair tool will clean steps and furniture.
The Dyson DC50 vacuum is the smallest and lightest of all Dyson upright vacuum cleaners but still packs a punch. If you have a smaller home with bare floors and area rugs this is the Dyson model for you.
Everything on the Dyson DC50 vacuum cleaner is sized to make it ideal in smaller apartments where space is valuable. The cleaner head, while not as wide as other Dyson vacuums, is specially designed with anti-static carbon bristles for wood floors and softer, nylon bristles for more delicate looped carpet or wool area rugs. The self-adjusting head keeps a tight seal ensuring the best vacuum performance possible on all surfaces.
