When deciding on a new vacuum for my household, I need something that works for both carpet and
hardwood. I have a 9 month old Siberian Retriever who sheds, so a vacuum that picks up dog hair is also a must, and since I'm always on the go so I need something that is light weight and easy to maneuver. The Dyson Ball Animal suits all of my homes needs.
Most homes in the US now have multiple floor types. Dyson Ball Animal's cleaner head self-adjusts for optimal contact- even on hard floors. An adjustable seal helps remove dust from hard floors, while long bristles penetrate deep into carpet to remove ground in dirt. Shorter bristles sweep the carpet top to remove surface and microscopic dirt. A lot of other vacuums have fixed settings to switch between the different flooring types. I can not tell you the times I've moved from the hardwood to the carpet forgetting to turn the switch to the right setting. If you've ever done this, and I'm quite sure most have, then you know this doesn't work out to well. With the bigger gap between the cleaner head and the floor contributes to a big loss of suction power and instead of sucking in dirt and grime, the mess gets blown around. With the Dyson Ball Animal and it's capability to self adjust to different floor types with ease, you'll never lose suction regardless of what type of floor you are cleaning. You'll have outstanding performance everywhere.
The Radial Root Cyclone technology captures more microscopic dust than any other's cyclone. The ball technology easily steers into difficult places that most vacuums don't dare enter, with a simple turn of the wrist. It's also commended for its potential to prevent musculoskeletal discomfort by the Royal College of Chiropractors. The ball feature is one of my favorites. I hate the straight line vacuuming with most other vacuums. They can be so hard to maneuver in the hard to reach places. Dyson's Ball technology allows you to easily steer in any which way. The ball makes cleaning along edges, around tight curves and into awkward places and furniture, a breeze.
The tangle-free turbine tool removes hair from carpets and upholstery like a champ. It's been a life saver for my household when cleaning up after our huge dog. If I don't vacuum the floors at least once a day then everything is over ran with hair. I love that the vacuum has easily accessible tools that I can clean my furniture with. The ease of maneuvering, steering, the ability to switch from carpet to hardwood and tools to clean upholstery definitely make this vacuum a 10 out of 10 in my opinion.
