The company produces a variety or dust-sucking devices to fit all of your needs whether you’re looking for an all-around champion, a handheld version, or a beast tough enough for pet hair. We’ve taken the time to scour the company’s options to shine the light on the very best Dyson vacuums out there.
History Of Dyson
Legend has it that James Dyson bought a Hoover Junior vacuum in the 1970s and it became clogged with little use and lost suction over time, infuriating Dyson. Instead of sucking up dirt, it just pushed it around the room and made a bigger mess. Dyson was inspired to create the ultimate vacuum. Taking design notes from an industrial sawmill, which uses a cyclonic separator to remove dust from the air, Dyson had the idea of applying that concept on a smaller scale to create a vacuum and the ball started rolling toward the first Dyson vacuum. In 1991, the first dual-cyclone vacuum was built under the Dyson name and was officially called the DA 001. Along the way, Dyson vacuums evolved with the addition of transparent containers, ‘Root Cyclone’ technology with seven cyclone funnels, and more. Today, the billion-dollar company is still going strong and remains at the forefront of vacuum technology.
Dyson vacuums are unlike traditional models because they’re bagless and utilize centrifuge power to push allergens and small particles out of the air. The company also uses stacked cyclones and the innovative Dyson ball, which pair together to offer substantial cleaning power.
Different Types Of Vacuums
There are many shapes, sizes, and models of vacuums. They can be found just about anywhere because everyone needs to keep their homes clean and tidy. Before we get into the best Dyson vacuums on the market today, we’ll go over the variety of vacuums available right now. There’s a different type of vacuum for every lifestyle, so let’s jump right in:
Upright: This vacuum is the most common and usually has a foot-lever to press for changing the angle of the device for improved mobility.
Handheld: If you need a vacuum for smaller jobs, grab a handheld machine. You can find a cordless model for on-the-go convenience so you can take it with you in your RV or camper van.
Stick: Check out this type of vacuum if you need a lighter version of an upright vacuum. It’s a hybrid of a handheld and upright, making it easy to store and move around. However, they are usually not as powerful as upright models.
Canister: The canister type is more versatile than the upright vacuum because you can carry the canister wherever you need to go and utilize the wand extender to clean difficult-to-reach places around your home. This type of vacuum is perfect for tackling stairs.
