House cleaning can be such a bore, but it can quickly become fun or even something to look forward to, with the right tool. But the “right tool” becomes quite relative when we consider preferences. Even at that, who wouldn’t take a tool that makes a grueling task easier?
If you have ever used one, you will know they also brought their own set of complications. Some lose suction power over time which takes you back to square one.
Others throw up dust that should have been sucked in, back in the air. Remember what they say about what goes up? And most of them try to simulate the noise of a jet engine.
What if we told you that you can avoid all of these complications in one fell swoop. You can get vacuum cleaners that won’t lose suction power. Vacuums that are certified allergy friendly. With these set of cleaners, you also won’t need ear protection.
That’s not all, these vacuums use advanced technology to do their thing. With the cyclone technology, they suck in dust and dirt fast. They also use the ‘ball’ technology for convenient maneuverability.
These set of vacuum cleaners will spoil you for choice. Whichever type of you want is available with some premium capabilities. The upright or canister models, multi-floor, animal, cordless, robot, etc.
Whatever your needs and preferences, when it comes to vacuum cleaners, Dyson has a top-of-the-range option for you.
The Dyson experience
Dyson is one of the leading names in household technology. It has engineered some of the best and highest selling home appliances over the years.
Chances are you have tried some of their products before as they have lots of them. If you haven’t, you are missing out. But we will patiently wait for you to thank us for introducing Dyson to you.
In the world of vacuum cleaners, its name stands out. This is because it is responsible for some of the best technologies in vacuum cleaners. All Dyson vacuums, for instance, are bagless.
That way, you won’t be inhaling half of the dust you’re trying to get rid of. The bagless technology also saves you the hassles of changing dust bags and loss of suction when it is full.
The container that collects dirt, instead of a bag, is tightly sealed to keep everything in. It is easily ejected for emptying into the trash. It opens from underneath while you hold it at the top.
That way, the dust, and allergen you got rid of from your home won’t end up in your lungs. This is one of the reasons the Dyson vacuum cleaner models are certified asthma and allergy friendly.
Its vacuum cleaners also use the cyclone technology. This helps to suck in the dust on the ground and in the air with the use of centrifugal force. In fact, the most recent models use two-level cyclones.
Yes, you guessed right, that’s twice the effect. Quite a number of Dyson users have raved about how much they still cleaned up after a pass with another brand.
The Dyson range explained
Dyson has different types of vacuum in its stables that works for different purposes. They all come with the Dyson touch of quality so, one is not necessarily better than another. Before we go into the models, let us explain two important technologies that are exclusive to Dyson.
The Dyson Ball
This is a distinct physical feature among the Dyson vacuum cleaner range. The ball design, constructed with polypropylene, is reinforced with glass. It serves as the pivot on which the vacuum is steered.
This allows for easier maneuverability and increases accuracy as against wheels. Dyson claims that this design also lowers the cleaner’s center of gravity for better stability.
The ball also serves as a cover for the motor and several other key components. The sphere also makes the Dyson Ball models a quieter variant.
The Cinetic Technology
This is a unique technological advancement that makes Dyson vacuum cleaners stand out. This design works in tandem with the cyclone technology mentioned earlier. It uses 36 rubber tips to move air at high speeds in a cyclical motion. This prevents dust particles from clogging the filters which is what makes vacuum cleaners lose suction power.
With the technology fitted in your Dyson vacuum cleaner, you will not need to clean out or replace the filters. You can also rest assured that you won’t be inhaling dust as you vacuum your home.
Now, let’s move on to the different Dyson vacuum cleaner models.
Dyson upright animal vacuum
The Animal variant is specifically designed for homes with frequent traffic and pets. It has a powerful suction that sucks in dirt, dust, and even hair strands. It comes with a tangle-free turbine tool with brushes. The brush heads in this tool rotate in opposite directions to easily pick up hairs off upholstery and carpets.
This model also uses the HEPA filtration system that keeps whatever is sucked in trapped in. Since it is great at vacuuming bacteria and allergens, it has been certified by the Asthma and Allergies Foundation of America.
Dyson upright multi floor vacuum
This variant is in every way similar to the Animal model except that it does not come with the tangle-free head. It is designed to work on different floors such as tiles, wood, or carpet. You will get the same effective cleaning results without changing any settings.
It is fitted with an active base plate with specialized brushes that comb through carpet fibers. This creates an effective dirt pick up for the suction to pull in resulting in a clean dust-free floor.
Dyson small ball vacuum
This is a smaller instalment among the upright models. It is best for smaller homes that do not require heavy and regular cleaning. Don’t be fooled by the size, however, it is highly effective too.
Fitted with similar technology as the larger models, it also provides powerful suction that is effective across different floor types. It is also easy to maneuver with its Ball technology and also uses the 2-tier cyclone for microscopic cleaning.
Dyson canister vacuum
These canister vacuums also work great on all floor types and are easy to move around and maneuver. The tube and extension design makes them easy to navigate and clean around and under furniture and obstacles.
The Dyson Canister vacuum is available in 3 models: The Cinetic Big Ball which requires no maintenance as the filters cannot get clogged. The Dyson Big Ball which uses the Ball technology for easy movement and stability. And the Dyson Ball which is the most compact and engineered for effective dust removal.
It is important to note that the Cinetic technology does not feature by default in all Dyson vacuum cleaner models. The Cinetic range is the premium model and is available in the upright and canister versions.
The cordless range of vacuum cleaners from Dyson is fast becoming popular for their convenience. There are no cords to restrict your movement which means you can take it anywhere in the house you want.
Their long stick design makes them versatile so you can clean high and low as you like. They feature a convenient handle which is just right behind the engine. One downside of the cordless variant is the battery. It doesn’t last that long while at work.
The best part of the cordless models is that they can easily convert small handheld vacuum cleaners. This makes them more suited for hard to reach areas, upholstery, stairs, and even your car.
Dyson robot vacuum cleaner
This is super convenient for multitasking as you can be busy doing something else while the robot cleans in your stead.
Of course, it will not match the power of the full models but it will keep your home clean. The fact that it will do its job without supervision makes it deserve some attention.
How to select the best Dyson vacuum cleaner for you
Now you know the available vacuum cleaner model from Dyson and what they are capable of. It is time to decide which one of them best suits your needs.
The best way to go about this is to be sure what specific purpose you need a vacuum cleaner for. If it is just routine cleaning you need, just about any Dyson vacuum cleaner will work great for you.
Animal or Multi Floor
Households with pets or long-haired members will be better off with the Animal vacuum models. This type of Dyson vacuum cleaner can tackle the tough jobs with ease and gusto. They come with tools specifically designed to pick up hair strands long or short.
There are homes with different types of flooring. This is where the Dyson Multi Floor vacuum will steal the show. Just glide your vacuum cleaner from one floor type to another and get the same deep cleaning. The best part is you will do this without having to change any settings.
For in-depth cleaning on a microscopic level, your best bet is the premium Cinetic models. These models of Dyson vacuum cleaners have nylon bristles that reach deep into your carpets and rugs to quickly pick up dirt. They can also remove dust from hard floors keeping your home nice and neat.
With these models, you won’t have to empty the bin often as they are large enough for repeated cleaning. If you don’t want to concern yourself with maintaining your Dyson vacuum cleaner, this is the model for you.
Dyson designed the Cinetic filters to avoid clogging. So, you won’t need to bother about cleaning them out or changing them.
Upright or Canister
Taller people might prefer the upright models so they won’t have to risk a backache. Though, the canister models have a long extendable hose and a wand that might keep you upright as well.
Uprights are easier to store since they are a single unit and have larger dirt holding capacity. These models are a good fit if you have large floor spaces to clean. The canister models are lighter which makes them better suited for cleaning the stairs. They are also generally quieter.
Both the upright and canister models are designed to be easily maneuvered. For homes with lots of corners and furniture spewed around, the canister models might be a good idea. They are compact and the flexible hose allows them to move in and around corners easily.
If the site of cords or movement restraints is a concern to you, Dyson feels your pain. And you are one of the reasons they designed the cordless models. Now you can move freely with your vacuum cleaner without dealing with tangled cords.
These great features come with a price tag. We’re pretty sure you already know that. Honestly, a Dyson vacuum cleaner isn’t exactly cheap but you know it is worth the price. One thing you can do is to stick with only the features that are necessary.
You might not need the Cinetic models if there’s no one that is asthmatic or has allergies in your household. You can also go for the smaller variants if your home isn’t that big.
On the other hand, if money isn’t a thing, you can have all the bells and whistles. The Dyson Total Clean package includes all the accessories you can need for all vacuuming types.
There you have it. The entire Dyson vacuum cleaner models and their awesome technologies. We also told you how each model differs from another and how you can choose which is best for you.
The ball is now in your court. With your new found knowledge, you can confidently pick out which variant best suit your needs.
