It's no coincidence that Dyson vacuum cleaners are one of the most popular brands on the market. The Dyson company believes in the simple principle that things should work properly. Dyson vacuum cleaners are the result of that dedication. Dyson vacuum cleaners are unsurpassed in quality design, innovative features and ease of use. Here are some facts about Dyson vacuums you may not know:
Dyson vacuums are certified asthma and allergy friendly. To earn this certification, Dyson vacuums have passed many tests. They can actually improve the air in your home.
Dyson vacuums are bagless vacuum cleaners. When you don't have to buy replacement bags, you spend less money over the life of the vacuum cleaner.
Dyson uses a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filtration system in which the filter traps 99.9 percent of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns in size.
The HEPA filter will last the lifetime of the vacuum. Other vacuums keep costing you money, but with a Dyson, you don't have to spend money on replacement filters.
A cyclonic force increases the mass of everything that is sucked into the bagless filter, including cigarette smoke. The force pushes the air against the filter, cleans it and sends it out of the vacuum cleaner than when it entered.
In other vacuum cleaners, the bags act as the filtration system, which doesn't allow for full entrapment of airborne particles, therefore expelling unclean air back out.
Cleaning a Dyson vacuum is simple. Once the bin has been emptied, wipe it down with a wet cloth. The pre-motor filter bag should be wiped down and then dried every six months.
All Dyson vacuum cleaners have been tested for quality assurance and are guaranteed to last at least 10 years. Their toll-free number is printed on the handle for consumer questions.
The most technologically advanced Dyson upright is the DC 28. This model includes all the features Dyson has to offer along with Airmuscle technology. Airmuscle is a three-head cleaner system, which cleans and adjusts to all floor types. Another feature included is the fingertip controls that activate the brushbar and allow for individual settings as needed.
Along with the uprights, Dyson offers canisters and handheld vacuums. These powerful units offer the updated technology of a Dyson but in a convenient, easy-to-store design.
