Cyclone Technology:

This is just one feature that sets Dyson vacuums apart from the others. It is a patented method that makes the air spin inside the machine. This spinning creates a centrifugal force which is up to 100,000 times the force of gravity. This powerful force collects dust and dirt more efficiently so as not to clog or loose suction like other vacuums

HEPA filter:

The lifetime, washable HEPA filter means cleaner air for you and your family. This filter is designed to trap microscopic allergens and will actually exhaust cleaner air than you normally breathe. For this reason, the Dyson’s HEPA filter is certified “Asthma and allergy friendly” by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

Mini Turbine Head:

This accessory is included when you purchase the DC24 Animal. It is a handy attachment that is made for confined spaces and will easily clean upholstery, stairs and your vehicle or motor home. It quickly attaches to the hose or cleaning wand to make it more versatile.

Dyson DC24 Recommendations:

Although the Dyson DC24 is pricey. Mrs. Clean recommends this model. I like the fact that it is a multi-tasker and it tackles tough pet hair.

It is also lightweight which means that you can easily take it upstairs, outside to clean your car or run it out to the motor home. The attachments will make it easy to get every inch of your home clean and with the HEPA filter; you won’t have to dust after you vacuum.

So, go ahead and use this vacuum everyday and use it for tough jobs because it has a 5 year warranty that is for both parts and labor.


The DC24 Animal is powerful and won’t clog; which is important when dealing with pet hair. If you ever had to clean a wad of pet hair out of your vacuum, you would appreciate this feature. This, along with the HEPA filter, will clean the air as you go.

It is lightweight making it very portable. I always dreaded having to lug my heavy vacuum up and down the stairs. The Dyson DC24 only weighs 11.65 pounds so my kids can even help. It is perfect for those with shoulder issues as well as seniors because it easily maneuvers as well.

All of Dysons vacuums are bagless. So, when thinking about the initial cost of this vacuum, you should factor in that you will never have to buy another vac bag. They also come with washable filters to you can just wash and go.


Pricey. All Dyson models are fairly expensive.

The dirt cup only holds .19 gallons of debris. For very dirty carpets or households with many pets, you will need to empty the bin frequently.

The cord is only 20 feet. This means more starting and stopping time in finding outlets and plugging in. For the price, a longer cord would be more convenient.
