Is it bad to be in love with a vacuum? I certainly NEVER thought it would happen to me, but I really am in love with my new Dyson Ball Animal Bagless Upright. Yes, the name is a bit of a mouthful, but it lives up to its description.
Here are the product features from the Best Buy site with my personal comments about my experiences so far:
Automatically adjusts to your flooring
The vacuum features a self-adjusting cleaner head that accommodates carpeting of different heights, as well as hard floors. We have a lot of hardwoods in my house so I really appreciate how easily the Dyson can switch surfaces.
Strong, reliable suction
Tackle tough, set-in dirt with a vacuum that features 1400W of power and is tested to ASTM F558 at the cleaner head. I never saw such minuscule particles with my previous vacuums. I can especially see how much cleaner my rugs are.
Clean hard-to-reach areas
The vacuum rides on a ball for easy maneuvering, and an instant-release wand is available for high-reach zones. Maneuvering the Dyson on its ball took a little getting used to, but once I got the hang of it, I really liked it. It is much easier to get around furniture and corners.
Traps allergens and impurities
A washable HEPA filter promotes a healthy home environment. Wash the filter every 3 months for best use. I am allergic to dust so the fact that the Dyson traps the dust is really great for me. I don’t need to carry around a box of tissues while I clean.
Simply push a button to release dirt from the hygienic bin. Who doesn’t love no bags?
Add the tangle-free turbine tool to remove hair and ground-in dirt or add the multi-angle tool for flexible vacuuming. The attachments are great. Three snap into holders on the vacuum’s body so they are on hand when you need them. The tangle-free turbine is fantastic for getting animal fur off the stairs and furniture.
I’ve seen Dyson commercials for years, but never thought it would live up to the hype. Well, I was wrong. The suction is absolutely amazing! We have a wonderful rescue dog, but she sheds like crazy. I was constantly vacuuming up her fur and never feeling like I was getting it all. With the Dyson, I am thrilled by the results after I vacuum.
This adorable pup’s hair on this sisal rug was my biggest challenge. Before the Dyson Ball Animal, I needed to get down on my knees with a lint roller to get her hair to come up. Even my cleaners “professional” vacuum could not get it up. One try with the Dyson Ball Animal and it was clean. I actually jumped for joy. Yes, my husband had a good giggle about that.
I’m off to write a love letter to my Dyson…. Want one for yourself? Check it out at BestBuy.com. Happy Cleaning!
