Dyson DC39 Animal
Advantages: Removes pet fur effectively, great vacuum cleaner
With two pet cats at home, we often find our carpets covered in a layer of cat hair, both leaving the house looking untidy and presenting problems for those with allergies to animal fur. This hair can be difficult to remove using an ordinary vacuum cleaner and for this reason, when our old vacuum cleaner went up to household appliance heaven, we decided to purchase a vacuum cleaner designed specifically to clean up pet hair.
After much deliberation, and after reading many reviews on Amazon and various other websites, we opted to buy the Dyson DC39 Animal Ball Cylinder model, which is targeted at pet owners. We purchased it from Amazon, where it was being sold for around £320, slightly lower than the RRP of £339.99.
Using this vacuum cleaner
This model is very easy to use; it feels pretty lightweight when being moved around and is easy to manoeuvre around tight corners and in small spaces. It uses ball technology which means that it takes very little effort to turn around - this makes it far easier to use than traditional models which use wheels to turn. The Ball Cylinder design and the fact that it is relatively light also means that this model can be used to clean stairs with ease - it is far easier to drag up stairs than traditional upright-standing models. The model is advertised as not being too noisy when in use - I'd say that the noise that it makes isn't too loud, but it's still quite substantial and usually scares my cats into fleeing from the house!
This vacuum cleaner also has very strong suction power, leaving carpets incredibly clean in minimal time and with very little effort. It picks up pet hair rapidly and incredibly effectively: our carpets are left looking pristine, and far cleaner than any other models have left them looking in the past. As a Dyson, this vacuum cleaner is bagless and has a transparent bin so that you can see when it needs emptying. This lets you see just how much hair has been picked up (I'm often astounded just looking into the barrell!) and also has the added bonus of removing the hassle and expense of purchasing bags for your vacuum cleaner.
This model comes with clear, easy-to-follow instructions as well as a number of attachments: a mini turbine head for use in small spaces, a combination tool (which includes a brush for stubborn fur), a stair tool and a hard floor tool. All of these attachments have been used in my house to great effect.
Price and value for money
At over £300, this is by no means the cheapest vacuum cleaner on the market. However, reassuringly it comes with a 5 year parts and labour guarantee and, having owned it for almost 6 months, we have not had any problems with it yet. We've always had Dyson vacuum cleaners at home in the past, and have found them to be reliable and long-lasting, as well as fantastic at cleaning. I'd say that this model has been worth the money we paid for it, as it does a much better job at getting rid of pet hair than any other model I have used in the past, and does so with minimal effort and maximum efficiency. Moving away from it's key feature (i.e. its ability to hoover up fur and hair), it's a great vacuum cleaner in its own right.
I'd strongly recommend this vacuum cleaner to anybody who has pets at home and struggles to remove hair and fur from their carpets. This vacuum cleaner has made it far easier for us to remove all traces of pet fur from our home, making the house look cleaner than it did for years before purchasing it. No other vacuum cleaner that I've used in the past has ever picked up so much hair and fur as this one does, and it also comes with a number of attachments to make cleaning all areas of the home as pain-free and -dare I say - enjoyable, as possible. With a five-year guarantee I know that I can rely on this model, and I'm sure that it will continue to work well for a number of years. Overall, it's a fantastic vacuum cleaner that removes pet fur from carpets and other surfaces incredibly effectively.
Summary: A wonderful vacuum cleaner - highly recommended
