Unlike the use of wheels that most vacuums have, the Dyson DC15 upright vacuum has a large yellow ball that will allow the vacuum to pivot and roll with the greatest of ease. With the DC15, you simply turn your wrist and the entire vacuum cleaner will change direction. The ability to maneuver this easily is something that is commonly associated with canister style vacuum cleaners.
In addition to the unique yet innovative ball design, the Dyson DC15 also offers quite an interesting filtration system. No matter what you may think or hear, Dyson vacuums don`t use filters in the way that most vacuum cleaners do.
With the Dyson DC15, the air and dirt are sucked into the container where the outer cyclone removes large particles such as food, hair, and even fibers. The air will then move into the shroud and inner cyclone where it is rotated with higher velocity to drop fine particles of dust out of the air.
From the inner cyclone, the air will move about through a washable inner foam pre-filter where a majority of the particles will remain trapped. This feature helps the DC15 to keep dirt and debris trapped inside and out of the motor.
The last step in the system after moving through the motor is the trip through the final HEPA filter. The DC15 has a very strict filter system, which will prevent 99.9% of bacteria and mold from getting to your home. The vacuum will suck it up and keep it inside of the vacuum where it belongs.
Even though they aren`t very well known, Dyson has been around for many years. They aren`t as popular or as well known as the bigger companies such as Hoover, although they offer you great quality and performance with their vacuum cleaners. Unlike Hoover, Dyson works to improve on its own products as well as the competition with each product they release.
The Dyson DC15 is truly a great vacuum to hit the market, as it is the first and only vacuum cleaner to feature the very unique ball. Even though robotic vacuum cleaners are becoming the most popular types of vacuum cleaners, the DC15 is ideal for housewives who want a traditional vacuum cleaner with a twist.
The Dyson DC15 is also known for its suction power and attachments as well. With the ball assembly, using attachments are a breeze. The only problem you may have is getting the hang of things.
The attachment wand is stored inside of the handle of the vacuum and is always attached. To use it, you lock the handle in the upright position then push a button on the front of the handle that will allow you to telescope the wand for use.
