Dyson DC23 Animal
Advantages: Cleaner air
Disadvantages: The bin could do with being a little bigger
The price I paid 364Euro around £320 (can be found for much cheaper now. Amazon for example are selling it for only £220.99 so shop around!)
Being asthmatic a vacuum cleaner is one of the most important purchases I had to make, so I don't take it as lightly as I have some of the other products I've reviewed.
I have cats, and when anyone hears that, they are completely puzzled. "Why would you choose cats over other pets?" I don't find cat hair or dander a problem so they don't irritate my asthma. I'm not here to review cats ( their great by the way) so I'll get on with it.
Dyson is of course a very well know and respect brand on the vacuum cleaner market. And for good reason if this DC23 pets and allergy, is anything to go by.
It looks like most of the other Dyson cyclone cylinder models, quite futuristic in it's design. A design that Dyson created and so may have copied. Don't get this confused with the more recognisable Dyson vacuums. These are called their upright range. Those are the tall waist Hight models that don't suit every size of home. The DC23 Is far more compact and looks more suited to being a car vacuum than for home use. But don't let the size fool you. This is more than capable of cleaning the dirtiest of houses with as many pets as you like. This is actually the vacuum that was used on Noah's Ark, don't you know.
Bag-less canister vacuums are nothing new, but they where when Dyson introduced them to the general public.
For powerful pet hair removal this does a great job. It features Dyson's most efficient cyclone technology for capturing microscopic dust. That's why this is a must for asthmatics.
The Mini turbine head removes dirt and pet hair from carpets, upholstery and tight spaces, whit the greatest of ease.
Always use the turbine-head brush bar, for carpets.
My whole house was carpeted when I first got this. Now all the rooms bar my bedroom have wooden floors. And a clever little extra on this model is that the turbine head switches off for hard floors.
The HEPA filter is guaranteed "Lifetime washable." It traps microscopic allergens. This makes all the difference to the quality of air after using a vacuum. Have you ever noticed how dusty the air can smell and feel after using your old vacuum.
Here's a handy little tip to see if your vacuum cleaner is throwing out more dust into the air than it's actually keeping.
First of all look on your model for the exhaust vent and take note of where the power switch is. Then grab yourself a flashlight or your mobile phone. Turn off the light and turn on your vacuum. After a few seconds shine the torch towards the vent and if it's performing badly, it will be clear to see, the dust flys up into the air. This can be very enlightening, as lots of people think they are doing a good thing vacuuming regularly. Then wonder why their children still cough and wheeze straight after.
Its easy to clean stairs aswell with this Dyson. As you know a lot of small models aren't nesserly easier to use on the stairs. This one is.
It has a long cord length (a must to look out for) And is specially designed to sit comfortably on each stair as you go.
The New "articulating hard floor tool" manoeuvres easily and cleans narrow gaps, with the minimal amount of effort.
Patented cyclone technology for no loss of suction. This means there are no dusty bags to change, at the touch of a button the dust can be emptied quickly and easily.
Level 3 Root CycloneTM technology
Air Watts (constant) 220 AW
