Dyson DC 28 Review

Dyson DC28 Vacuum Cleaner

Dyson DC28 Reviews and Ratings
With the holiday season upon us, a sparkling clean house is at the top of most people’s wish list.  It’s wonderful to have pets in your home at any time, but especially so during holidays when visitors arrive and more time is spent relaxing with friends and family.  For any pet owner, the longer your pets live, the more time you have to enjoy them.  But as pets age, often a more intense clean-up regimen is necessary.  For most pets, shedding season is Spring and Autumn, and heavy clean-up season likely follows.  Whether your indoor pet of choice is a Persian cat, Old English Sheep-dog, Chihuahua or an Angora rabbit, the Dyson DC28 Animal upright vacuum is a great tool to have in your household.  Other vacuums lose suction so pet hair can get left behind in your home, but the Dyson name is synonymous with heavy-duty reliability and the Dyson DC28 will not disappoint.



The DC28’s bulletproof construction comes complete with Dyson’s patented Airmuscle technology, which allows you to adjust the cleaner head to different floor surfaces easily (with the push of a button and no bending over).  It uses pneumatics to hug the floor and focus suction which means you are getting the most advanced cleaner head technology on the market.

The Dyson DC28 Animal upright vacuum has the trademark Root Cyclone technology. This means It removes cat, dog and other pet hair from your home using centrifugal forces up to 150,000 times the force of gravity.  Very little dirt, dust, grime, pet hair and dander (or even small stones!) will be able to resist the powerful forces of this suction power.   It’s why Dyson vacuums don’t lose suction as you use them.  Its powerful Dyson digital high RPM motor spins so fast it could easily compete with a Formula One race car.  This means you are getting the most powerful suction on the market.

If you are one of the millions of people who live with allergies as well as pets, then you understand fully the importance of minimizing exposure to your pet’s hair and dander. The Dyson Animal upright line is certified “asthma & allergy friendly” by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.  The DC28 has a washable HEPA filter that removes allergens and dust particles from the exhaust air making your home enjoyable to even the most sensitive of allergy sufferers. Dyson’s customary attention to detail is apparent with this DC28 model vacuum cleaner.  Most electric motors have carbon brushes that deteriorate over time which generate fine dust particles in the air.  The Dyson digital brushless electric motor design has eliminated even this as a source of potential airborne irritants, most noted by allergy sufferers.

The primary cleaning surface of the DC28 that comes in contact with your surfaces and upholstery is the mini-turbine head.  It uses a clean-air turbine, which is lighter than the motorized brush head technology used in other vacuums.  The mini-turbine head has a split-channel airflow to prevent blockages too.  This means you are still getting the legendary suction power Dyson is famous for but in a package with ease of maneuverability in mind.  The bristles of this brush bar spin at 3,600 RPM, fast enough to whisk away surface pet hair and exposed ground in dirt needing to be extracted from your furniture and floors, and quickly deposits it right into the dirt canister.  This is sucking power at its finest.  The DC28 comes complete with a high velocity airflow crevice brush tool that is ideal for cleaning everything from base boards to those hard to reach narrow places in-between your furniture.

The combination brush tool is included for lighter household cleaning chores, such as dusting even the most delicate surfaces.  This tool takes care of everything from computer keyboards and audio-visual equipment, to shelves of books or knick-knacks.  The added extension tools that come with the unit allows you to reach high surfaces to tackle every window covering from blinds to draperies, as well as wainscot ridges.  You may want to invest in additional extension accessories if you are looking to vacuum detailed crown molding on your ceilings.  The Dyson DC28’s power is substantial enough to handle the task of cleaning places that might seem far away, but using the extension tool will not cause a sacrifice in the suction levels.

Once you’ve finished cleaning the house you can easily step outside and get down and dirty with your favorite outdoor living area.  The high capacity bag-less dirt chamber on the DC28 means you won’t have to interrupt your cleaning rhythm to run to the trash bin repeatedly.  One push of a button neatly disposes of the collection of dirt, grime and pet hair resting in the waste cylinder directly into your trash bin.  This reduces further any potential irritation to the allergy sufferer because you never have to handle the dirt, dust and pet dander.

Heavy duty construction and bullet proof technology do create a substantial tool to tackle your cleaning jobs around the home.  The DC28 Animal upright has been constructed with care and the attention to engineering detail the Dyson name is famous for.  The DC28 is engineered to move across the multiple surfaces of your floor with ease, but for some people, it can be a little heavy to move around.  If your home is a single story floor plan, you most likely will fully appreciate all of this power coupled with its rugged construction and engineering sophistication.  Appropriate tools to tackle stairs are available for the Dyson DC28.  There are also portable machines in the Dyson Animal line which might be more suited for lots of stairs or multi-level homes.

In summary, as vacuums go, the Dyson DC28 can be your best friend, if you own pets, like to have a clean home and want the security knowing that your home is thoroughly clean and fresh after you vacuum.  This model is designed, engineered and built to last a long time.  Just like the investment you’ve made in your home to have high quality floor surfaces and window coverings, the investment you make to purchase a Dyson DC28 is one of high quality.  There are less costly vacuums on the market, and there are less costly floor coverings.  Rarely is the decision to purchase up-market a regrettable one.  Won’t you join us as satisfied owners of this reliable upright vacuum cleaner?  Give it a try and take a minute if you like to tell us what you think about it.  We’re very interested in your personal review and understanding what your experience with the Dyson DC28 has been.
