2020 Update: The latest Dyson portable is the V11 Cordless.
You know by now that I talk a lot about the fact that my home is full of carpet. We had it done when the home was built and honestly, I love it that way. I love being able to walk around knowing that my feet will be warm. I love the feel of carpet under my feet rather than a cold, hard floor.
I also like to vacuum a lot more than I like to mop. As a matter of fact I don't like moping at all. But that's another post. Maintaining a home full of carpet can be hard. I'm all for any products that help me with this! And Best Buy carries some of my favorites.
Dyson is likely the #1 name in the vacuum biz. This is for good reason. I already own a Dyson 31 Animal handheld vacuum, and Dyson DC 65 Animal which I love! But each of those has drawbacks when it comes to cleaning all over the home. The DC 31 does not have an extension, so it can only reach so far. However, my kids love to use it to clean the stairs. I certainly won't argue with that. 🙂 The DC 65 Animal is a monster! It is a great vacuum, but it is large and bulky and corded, which means it is not easy to move around the house.
Enter the Dyson V6 Absolute Cordless Vacuum, available at Best Buy. This little baby is the best of both worlds. The body is very similar to my DC 31, but it is an updated design that comes with tons of accessories. And of course it functions as a full vacuum, and floor duster.
Product Specs & Benefits:
2 cleaner heads in one machine:
- Dyson Fluffy: A soft roller cleaner head engineered to suck up both large dirt and fine dust simultaneously on hard floors. Powerful cleaning without scratching.
- 75% more brush power: A second cleaner head features a direct-drive motor that creates 75% more brush bar power than DC59 Animal to better agitate carpet pile and tackle ground-in spills and stains.
- Easy to push:A large, soft roller and increased versatility from a re-designed neck enables smooth movement across floor types.
- Dyson digital motor V6: The latest Dyson digital motor gives V6 Absolute the most powerful suction of any cordless vacuum in use.
- 2 Tier Radial™ Cyclone Technology: Flings dust out of the air and into the bin, separating out even the most microscopic particles.
I love this vacuum, because it is light enough for my kids to go and get themselves, bring upstairs, and vacuum their rooms. And I'm able to easily use it on stairs, or use the extension to get the pesky spiderwebs in the corners.
The only con that I have for the Dyson V6 is the filter design. When the vacuum is in use and being moved around the filter falls out… all the time!
Overall this is an awesome little vacuum. It is quite powerful and now gets used a lot in my home full of carpet.
The Dyson – V6 Bagless Cordless Stick Vacuum – White/iron/natural is no longer available, but you can still get many other great Dyson vacuums.
