Dyson Animal review


I recently adopted a new kitten from the animal shelter which sparked the purchase of a more powerful vaccum, the Dyson DC28 Animal. Our household has three allergy sufferers; a large amount of animal hair and dander, contributed by a golden retriever and a longtime cat pal who recently died; and rural dust and pollen.

This vacuum can suck as I found out the first time I used it. We had just shampooed our carpeting but the Dyson still filled up two canisters in no time. I was impressed as our old vacuum never performed like that.

If you have allergies and indoor pets, this vacuum is definitely worth checking out. It is ranked as one of the most popular and highly rated vacuums in the “Vacuums for Pet Hair” category. Its suction power is what takes care of your pet hair problems. I could actually feel it pulling on the carpet as I was vacuuming.

The Dyson Animal worked wonders on my home’s short-pile carpeting but it is not recommended for long-pile carpeting greater than one inch. Some carpet manufacturers will actually void the warranty if you use the Dyson Animal on long-pile carpeting.

I found the Dyson easy to use even though I had read that some owners thought it was too heavy. Emptying the canister was a breeze but some dust and debris did resettle in the air. You could compensate for this by taking the canister outside to empty it.

The vacuum is more suitable for larger houses because it does not maneuver around tight turns as other Dyson vacuums do that have spherical ball pivoting. The Animal can be used on hardwood floors where it does a great job of sucking up dirt and dust from small cracks.

The vacuum’s lifetime HEPA filter (which is washable) earned the seal of approval from the British Allergy Foundation, a definite plus for those of us with allergies. Some other features I liked include the see-through dust bin and the fairly quiet motor which didn’t scare either my new kitten or my golden retriever who was terrified of my old vacuum.

The main issue you might find with this vacuum is the price, about $600. However, you might be able to purchase a refurbished one, as I did, for a lot less.
