What Makes Dyson Vacuums The Best?

Both models, along with the Gen5detect Absolute Cordless Vacuum come with laser-guided cleaning that will make your housework and vacuuming feel like a breeze¹. A precisely angled laser detects microscopic dust particles you can’t normally see - making invisible dust visible on hard floors. For further scientific proof of a good clean, the LCD screen feature shows you exactly what’s been sucked up, to give you added peace of mind².

Hair can be troublesome when vacuuming. Whether they’re from humans or pets, strands of hair can easily get caught and clog your machine, but that’s no issue with a Dyson vacuum. The Dyson V15 Detect Absolute™ High Torque cleaner head automatically adapts suction power between carpets and hard floors to easily pick up hair strands⁶, while the Dyson Gen5detect Absolute has hair removal vanes that automatically de-tangle hair from the brush bar as you clean. The entire Dyson range (apart from the Dyson Omni-Glide) comes with Anti-Tangle Motorbars and hair screw tool that picks up annoying stray hair and uses Dyson’s anti-tangle technology to spiral the hair off and straight into the bin.
