Dyson V6 Models Review

Among the cordless vacuum cleaners, Dyson V6 is one of the top brands. It is the first cordless vacuum with HEPA filtration and certified by the Asthma & Allergy Foundation.

The Dyson V6 has a HEPA filter that can capture allergens (including dust mites and mold) and remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns.

There are several models in the Dyson V6 series. The basic model provides fewer tools while the top model, V6 Absolute, provides the complete set of tool and brush. If you have the budget you should get the Absolute or Animal model, or you can get the basic model and buy the accessories at a later time. Please note that only the following accessories are certified as Asthma & Allergy Friendly.

  • Mattress Tool
  • Flexi-crevice tool
  • Carbon fiber soft dusting brush (No suitable for cordless models)
  • Reach under tool (No suitable for cordless models)
  • Tangle free Turbine tool (No suitable for cordless models)

I used to think powerful vacuum needs to be large with a long power cord, the Dyson V6 proves it I was wrong. It’s totally lightweight and space efficient. It can convert into a handheld, so as to increase the portability. By using different brush and clean heads provided, every places can be cleaned.

In summary, the Dyson V6 series is the best choice for those who likes to vacuum frequently. You don’t need to find a power socket and with the tool you can vacuum from top of the ceiling and down to the floor. It’s one push to release design keeps your hands clean all the time. If there is anything I don’t like, I’d say it’s the price, and the noise. Nevertheless, it’s a cordless lightweight vacuum with HEPA filtration and Asthma & Allergy Friendly certification. It’s not possible to find another alternative in the mean time. 

PS: If you are only interested in removing dust mites on your bed, the Dyson V6 Mattress may be a better choice. The motorized mattress tool can agitates mattress fibers to release dust and allergens.
