Dyson DC31 Animal Handheld Vacuum Review

by Nicole on March 10, 2010

Name of Product: Dyson DC31 Animal Handheld VacuumDC31_Animal

Price of Product: $269.99

Where can the product be purchased: online at Amazon and at retailers nationwide

Description of Product:Dyson DC31 Animal is a handheld vacuum with a motorized brush bar, designed for homes with pets. Ideal for quick pick-ups and spot cleaning. It also has dual power mode that gives longer run-time for large jobs or extra suction for stubborn dirt. Powered by the new Dyson digital motor – three times faster, the most power efficient.  Dyson’s latest handheld is powered by the Dyson digital motor, DDM – the fastest, most power-efficient motor ever developed for a handheld vacuum. Spinning up to 104,000rpm, DDM is five times faster than a Formula 1 race car engine. You get more power, longer. It just works.
Like all Dyson vacuums, DC31 uses patented Root Cyclone™ technology to separate dirt, fine dust and debris from the air. So,
it doesn’t lose suction as proven by the internationally recognized IEC 60312 Cl 2.9 test standard.  For tough pet hair, DC31 Animal’s motorized brush bar has been redesigned to swivel for better contact. Even the peskiest animal hair has met its match.”


Review of Product: I have 2 dogs as many of you know and while they are of the “non-shedding” variety, they do lose hair just like you and me! I was looking for a handheld vacuum to pick up the hair that wasn’t easy to vacuum up with a traditional vacuum.  I was excited to get this Dyson DC 31! It was ready to use in minutes and I love the 2 year warranty that the product comes with.  Long warranties equal good companies to me! The motor is super strong and it sucked up dirt and hair effortlessly.  The handheld comes with an extension hose, wide nozzle tool, a stubborn dirt brush, and a soft dusting brush.  The attachments are really useful and there wasn’t any place I wasn’t able to clean up with the Dyson.  The Dyson DC31 is bagless and comes with a washable filter.  This vacuum is expensive but worth the money in my opinion as it is so well-made and comes with that nice warranty.  If you have high traffic areas and/or pets, this Dyson DC31 does the job!

I received this product to review at no charge but my opinions remain my own.

We bought our first Dyson one several years ago. The decision clincher for us was all the people in the store who stopped and said “wow, you have GOT to buy one of these. You’ll love it!” They were right. In fact, we liked our DC17 so much that we bought another DC28 this year. The Dyson’s are pricey, but you’ll be amazed at how much they will pull out of your carpet even after you’ve vacuumed with your other vac. And they’re great on hardwood floors as well.
