The Dyson DC15 Animal vacuum definitely has more suction power than the older Dyson DC07 . However, the Dyson DC07 is still a good vacuum for pet hair. I initially wanted to test whether the DC 15 had conquered the DC07′s problem of picking up large particles like Cheerios. I focused on testing the vacuum’s large particle pick up ability because I assumed (correctly) that the DC 15 would do a even better job picking up dirt and pet hair than the DC 07. When I started my test using the DC 15, I could see cheerios jumping up and down as I moved closer to them and slowly vacuumed them up.
While Dyson has obviously listened to customer complaints about the cheaper DC07’s lack luster ability to pick up cheerio size particles, the DC15 can’t pick up these particles fast. I still believe that this is because all Dyson vacuums automatically adjust to the height of the carpet. While this automatic vacuum head adjustment is perfect for vacuuming deeply embedded dirt and pet hair, large particles can get pushed around as you vacuum. I find that if a cheerio’s like or larger disaster happens, using a wet/dry vac is the ideal quick solution. However, the DC15′s ability to suck up embedded dirt, pet hair and dust in a carpet is outstanding. While the Dyson DC15 Animal did not make our best vacuum for pet hair list largely due to newer, better vacuum models, it is still an exceptional vacuum.
The Dyson DC15 brush bar, which automatically adjusts to the height of the carpet was perfect. I usually had to wiggle the DC07′s handle when I started vacuuming so that it could find the ideal vacuuming height. The DC15 now sports a clear housing for the brush bar. You can now clearly see when the bristles that are attached to the bar eventually become entangled with dog hair and other stringy debris. Clearing the debris is a cinch. Unscrew the brush housing using a coin and cut out the offending debris. The great thing about Dyson vacuums is that you will never need workshop tools such as screw drivers to maintain them.
The ball and the stabilizer wheels allow you to vacuum under your dining room table for example, with your arm and body fully extended without the brush bar rising up. The ball also allows you to turn the DC15 quickly without moving your body. This feature saves time because it allows you to vacuum areas that normally require an attachment tool.
Apart from vacuuming daily, keeping my rugs smelling fresh and free from ground in dirt is a weekly chore for my dog daycare and boarding business. I used to liberally sprinkle Arm and Hammer’s pet fresh baking soda then I would manually work the carpets with a brush. As I manually worked the carpet, dust from the baking soda would fly all over the place. The Dyson DC15 Animal comes with a great accessory, it’s a hidden gem that has no name but its supposed to be used with Dyson’s Zorb carpet powder. The device which I will call the Carpet Groomer serves two purposes. It does an excellent job of conditioning the carpet as you work your preferred brand of baking soda into the carpet. The carpet groomer also sucks in the dust from the carpet that inevitably rises from the carpet as you work it. The carpet groomer greatly reduces the need to vacuum your upholstery and wipe down your furniture after conditioning your carpet.
The DC15 animal does not use disposable bags and filters. That alone has already saved me hundreds of dollars. A squeeze of a trigger found at the top of the DC15′s clear bin, disposes of accumulated debris quickly and cleanly.
The DC15 also comes with a five year warranty. Dyson is the only large company that I have called that did not put me on hold when I thought I had a problem.
The Dyson DC15 is a great vacuum. It is significantly better than the Dyson DC07. The DC07 is still a good vacuum with fantastic dirt sucking abilities. The DC15 adds to the DC07’s abilities in more ways than one.
First there was the regular vacuum cleaner, then bag-less ones and now the automatic vacuum cleaner. The Bissell Spotbot Pet HandsFree handheld vacuum cleaner is superb at picking up debris and cleaning stains from carpets while you put your feet up. It has a WalkAway function that you simply input the cycle and let the machine do the work. There is no heavy lifting or back-breaking activities like regular handheld vacuum cleaner units need. There is the Deep Reach Technology, which removes deep down stains thoroughly.
Spiral brush action
There is a unique spiral brushing action which lifts stains and dirt so it’s easy to suck up by the motor. It has 400 cleaning revolutions and makes it so much more effective than a regular handheld vacuum cleaner. There is also a manual cleaning option, which allows you to use it as a regular cleaner so you can clean upholstery, cars and stairs without having to buy a different cleaner.
Great for tight places
There is a hose and tool assembly which makes it perfect for those tight and hard to reach places, and where the automatic function might not be able to get to. It weighs 18.1 pounds, so it’s not something to carry around, but it comes with its own wheels so it’s easy to transport around the home. The SpotBot Pet is perfect for those ‘accidents’ that your young pet might leave around the home when they are training. There are different aroma bottles that you can use to perfume the stain and carpet so you’d never know there was dirt there. It really is a step above the other handheld vacuum cleaner units on the market.
Deep cleaning action
There is a 16 foot power cord, a 7” brush area and different functions depending on the stain. There is a ‘set in stain removal’ option which really goes deep into the pile to remove the dirt, and is perfect for those stains that have been too difficult to remove previously. Normal handheld vacuum cleaner units simply cannot match the Bissell SpotBot for the power in the motor, the automatic ability and have the versatility of being a manual cleaner when needed.
When you’re looking for a handheld vacuum cleaner that can remove stains, perfume your carpet, work without you doing anything and have the ability to get into tight spots, the Bissell is the perfect one. It even fights mold, bacteria and mildew, with its antimicrobial protection qualities.
