Introducing my new best friend Dyson – part 2

Posted on Fri, 17 Apr 2015 by KiM

I am back to talk a bit more about my new best friend, my cordless Dyson V6 Absolute. I had featured this incredible vacuum last week and showed you what a gem this thing is on carpet. Now I want to show you how awesome it is on hard floors. 

For hard floors the V6 Absolute comes with a soft roller cleaner head – in the photo above it is the one on the top right. It is FANTASTIC! Unlike other vacuum cleaner heads, the soft roller cleaner head has a full-width roller covered in a soft nylon material and rows of carbon fibre filaments. Large debris are enveloped by the soft material and flung inside the cleaner head, while the antistatic qualities of the carbon fibre filaments gently remove fine dust, without damaging your hard floors.

Once again, I found this application of the vacuum to be a game-changer. My former crappy cordless vacuum has so little suction that even dealing with hard floors was a challenge. I had to go over each area several times, mostly to get the larger bits. This cleaner head works like a charm. Above you will see what I regularly have to deal with. On the left are little bits of cat food that regular appear after the herd’s feeding time, and on the right is a pile of sawdust scraps that often appear from my husband’s woodworking shop in the basement. 


Of course there is an audience. I have realized the more I use this vacuum that it really is not as loud as most vacuums I have owned. That is why cats are always in my photos – the noise does not bother them. And to note, this is my newly painted kitchen so you are getting a glimpse at new blue walls and gold hardware (LOVE!). Anyway, this cleaner head picks up EVERYTHING in site without having to go over the same area again and again. And the cleaner head is made of such soft material and with the way it is designed you never have to worry about it scratching your floors. 

I swear this whole area took me about 5 seconds to vacuum without a spec of dust or cat food left. And the fabric is SO easy to clean off – which is a huge deal for me because cat hair ends up clogging every part of a vacuum used in my house but in this case just running you hands along the fabric heads lets you wipe off any fur/hair/etc that gets caught. My house is all hardwood and tile so this attachment is going to get used all of the time. I love you more each day, V6 Absolute

The kittens look like they are contemplating new plans to challange the Dyson..

It is amazing how the tiger are just curious and relaxed, or not even curious. Love it!

@Margaret @Ombia – actually the 2 cats in this photos LOVE to be vacuumed so they're probably trying to figure out how to get some of that action
@Carol – there's a piece so it wall-mounts (shown in my first post) and then a plug connecting to the bottom of the canister piece.
@Sylvie – LOL that's awesome
@jane – HA! Only when I need to be photographed vacuuming 🙂

jane says:

well you look awesome!

i have one of these vacuums and can attest that they are wonderful, and lovely little space-savers too.
