Value For Money

Dyson DC23 AnimalDyson is one of the most well known names in the vacuum cleaner industry. It is most often associated with high end models that can get a little pricy for some consumers. The concept behind Dyson vacuum came about in 1979 when founder, James Dyson, was inspired to improve on existing vacuum designs. These shows significantly in the way Dyson’s products have progressed over the decades.

Today, Dyson models are recognized for their durability and excellent power capabilities. They never lose suction and include patented cyclone technology that is known for collecting more pet hair, dander and dust particles than most similar vacuums. The DC23 Animal vacuum cleaner can collect as much as 99.9% of all particles that enter it, which means that the air sent back out of the Dyson into your home is 99.99% cleaner after each vacuuming.

The DC23 Animal is also built for convenience. It is very easy to push and can be maneuvered in most small spaces. The use of a filter means consumers never have to purchase vacuum bags again. This specific model is intended to be optimized for homes with pets. Even households with multiple dogs or cats notice a difference with the DC23, which can keep up with fur and dander removal when used regularly.

What did customers who bought Dyson’s DC23 Animal vacuum cleaner like?

  • They are much quieter compared to similar models by different manufacturers. Even though there is some noise, it is kept to a minimum.
  • Adding or removing accessories from the Dyson DC23 Animal is very easy and requires only a single step to snap on or take off.
  • The suction power offered by a Dyson is very strong and consistent. They do not lose their suction power over time like some vacuum cleaners do.

What did Dyson’s DC23 Animal customers dislike?

  • The extension wand included is a little unwieldy and can be cumbersome to use in some situations.
  • Dyson’s powerful suction can actually work against the appliance, pulling carpet fibers right out of floors in some carpet types. Consumer should test run on various surfaces before vacuuming an entire room to monitor potential damage.
  • Dyson recommends that consumers check filters an average of every six months on most models. Those intended for pets (or used in homes with pets or excessive dust) will need to check much more frequently, possibly once a month.

    I believe that’s for either the suction release or tool attachments. I’m trying to figure out where exactly on the cleaner you’re talking about.

    You can find the manual for the DC23 on my review site. Maybe you’ll find the answer there.

    Hope this helps.
