Vacuum cleaners are essential for keeping carpets clean and free of dirt, dust, and other debris. When it comes to vacuuming human hair on carpets, however, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, human hair is very fine and can easily become tangled in the brushes of a vacuum cleaner.
As such, it’s important to use a vacuum cleaner with soft bristles or a brush attachment specifically designed for human hair. Second, human hair can be very oily and can quickly clog up a vacuum cleaner’s filters.
To avoid this, be sure to empty the vacuum cleaner’s dustbin or bag after each use. Finally, human hair can also be static-charged, which can cause it to stick to carpets. To prevent this, vacuum in short, quick strokes rather than long, slow strokes.

The Shark Vertex DuoClean PowerFins Upright is exactly what a neat freak w/ OCD should own!!! You can feel the weight of the machine as you start it up (after you’ve adjusted the pile setting for hard floors, carpet, etc.
). I have been using another brand unit for the past 15 yrs approx. & was happy with it for almost all of those years. It provided me an introduction into the upscale vacuum product & also gave me some great ideas on what it was lacking & what I liked.
This Shark machine has all I was looking for & more!!! Pros: Versatility – it can become a canister vac, mobil detail unit for the vehicle, deep cleaning machine for furniture & mattresses and even a deep clean machine for the hard to reach, often forgotten places (under the fridge or oven – how long has it been since you actually swept under there?!) Easy to Assemble – The joints and nerves in my hands are under constant attack, which make even the smallest “grip”/“grab” task mildly frustrating.
After waiting a week for help to put it together, I decided to “suck it up buttercup” and try myself. It was all of about 5 steps & BOOM – we’ve got a new “toy” in the house! Gadgets/Gizmos/Attachments/Accessories – There is an accessory for almost any task in your home & automobile! I haven’t tried them all yet, but very excited to do so! Hopefully it’s a breeze to use them & attach them as it was to put together the entire machine! Bonus – I don’t often purchase a product on the actual brand website, but after a night of insomnia, I stumbled on this paid programming segment (as well as the hair dryer…so I may have that on my next Shark/Ninja product acquisition list!).
I was so shocked that a vacuum could do ALL of that, plus you’d get bonus accessories & items as well as an extended warranty option all for purchasing on the site! SOLD – sign me up! Cons: Weight/Vibration – As mentioned previously, I do have severe hand issues, so although I was amazed at how “fluffy” my carpet felt after vacuuming SLOWLY for my first test run & how I feel like that carpet hasn’t actually been cleaned this whole time, after a little bit, I could feel the tingling and vibration for the next couple hours.
Not a deal breaker, just definitely a thought to consider – ensure you have the energy & appropriate rest time afterward if you suffer the same symptoms. Attachment Storage – it lacks the “on the unit” storage of most competitors & wish it did have clip places to attach them to the unit itself.
Instead, they give you a bag to put it in. Which this is fine if your household is of the same mindset as you – but if you live in the “real world” like I do, it’s likely that you live with folks who don’t put things back where they belong, therefore you’re likely to have lost or M.
I. A. Accessories. So here’s to hoping my “happy-go-lucky” loved ones heed my warnings if they do not store the accessories back in their designated & appropriate area! :).
I give a 5 out of 5 star review for the Vertex Duo Clean. It offers high or low suction power using 3-speed (hard floor, low nap, high nap settings), zero frustration to attach and detach accessories with snap off button switches, keeps fur and hair off the head nozzle rollers with duo clean engineering.
I have been using my Vertex well over one year, and I have had no issues. With the low suction, I can vacuum most throw rugs, bathroom mats, without using a hand held accessory. Suction is high so to remove an attached accessory, I just hold handle between my legs, and twist off; pull off does not work in detaching accessories.
I like how the head nozzle has flash light to see dust better in dark. I don’t have that light though if I use accessory with the long tube, but that’s not a big deal. I know the dust is there, or saw it from head nozzle light, and just make sure to suction the specific area.
True, by design, the two on board attachments get knocked off, but we do bump our vacuums around against things, so I don’t see that as a drawback. It makes it easier to pull attachments off while in use, and they only fall off if you bump the vacuum.
This vacuum is not responsible for blowing dust bunnies around by the way. All vacuums blow air out while in use. When people don’t wash their curtains, linens, blankets, vacuum their closets, wash their walls, vacuum their furniture, or clean their ventilation, change heat pump filters frequently, have old shredding fiber carpeting, or have a poorly running heat pump, you get floaters; That’s why some people have air cleaners running in every room.
I also love that this vacuum is self propelling, and see why due to extensive high suction, and a tad, slight heavier vacuum. I do have to use low suction on high knap carpets to push easier. Only one type of carpet (rare), extremely thick high knap, this model is hard to push through the carpet, even on low suction.
However, I can still get the carpet vacuumed with slightly more cardio effort. This carpet fiber I do not encounter frequently as a home cleaner. I check my head nozzle for any accumulated hair, and sometimes, if the vacuum is rolled over dried, sticky stuff on the floor/carpet, then hair is going to stick with that and get caught up in the felt roller bars.
At least I do not need scissors to have to cut off the roller bars, and the hair is pulled out stuck in between the grill and felt roller bar. I love the button on each side of the head nozzle to detach the roller bars for cleaning, as well as cleaning inside of head nozzle.
I feel Shark vacuums could stand improvement in the plastic sections of the vacuum that could be fitted with stainless steel plating to protect the plastic that can get overly scratched or easily broken located in in the neck region and lift away attachment region on this vacuum.
Also a larger canister would be good. Hair does clump up and doesn’t easily fall out of the canister. My hands get dirty here in assisting the dirt to fall through. My client complimented how clean I always get her carpet, as she has a shedding German shepherd so I just vacuum until no more hair gets sucked inside the canister.
The two on board attachments provide all I need in cleaning stairs, upholstery, and cracks and corners. No need to carry in a ton of accessories to clean a home in most cases. Be sure to register the vacuum with Shark to warranty the performance of your vaccine.
Kind of like, kind of disappointed. Purchased to replace our 5 year old Shark Navigator Lift-Away whose electrical cord broke. Having hard wood floors, our options were limited. Having loved our old Shark, it seemed to be a no-brainer to purchase this with the hard wood floor setting.
So far. Pros: – hardwood floor setting – lift away cannister – powerhead fits underneath most of our furniture – the soft front brush roll is nice as it dusts our wood floor Cons: – the quality of build and parts seems cheaper than other models – no longer has the built in wand nozzle light – the canister “lifted away” is super finnicky to click and lock back into place – wand is also finnicky to get locked back into place after using – the soft front brush roll is annoying as heck on area rugs: doesn’t matter the thickness, it always seems to pull just enough of the rug into the machine causing the powerhead to think it is jammed and stop working.
Machine has to be turned off and back on to reset. Overall, after being excited about the brush roll fitment, I am disappointed in this vacuum. The wand and canister’s finnickiness is super annoying as I use both every time I vacuum; same with the brush roll’s inability to handle vacuuming smaller area rugs (as in 3 x 5 entry mat and 2.
5 x 7 runners) without “clogging” the powerhead. The only reason I am considering keeping it is because we got it on sale, and have hard floors; other models designed for hardwood floors don’t have power heads that fit under furniture.

This is our second Shark vacuum. We loved our first, but I was having to give it a “hair cut” often. With 3 girls with long, thick hair in one household equals a lot of hair getting vacuumed and wrapped around the brush.
This new Shark vacuum has a different brush that is more of rubber paddles that really don’t get all wrapped up. Unboxing and assembly was very easy and straight forward. The directions were clear and it went together in just a minute.
I love that you can take the tank portion off and just walk around with that and use the hose. So nice to get into hard to reach places. The different suction options are also very handy for different flooring-hardwood, short pile carpet, long pile carped, etc.
We have 3 floors of different styles of flooring, and this has been a very convenient tool.
This is hands down the best vacuum I have ever owned. It has amazing suction power. I used it on my carpet after I used my old vacuum and was amazed at the dirt, dust and hair it picked up. I have long hair and and a dog and have no issues with it getting wrapped around the brush or clogging.
It was so easy to put together. It came with picture instructions and all you have to do is snap it together. The detachable canister and tools are great feature. It works great on my stairs and furniture.
This vacuum is so versatile with suction control and hardwood to carpet feature. I have hard wood floors and different styles and thicknesses of carpet. It is so easy to transition from on to the other with a flip of a button and the swivel head makes it so easy to maneuver around.

After researching all of the best vacuums on the market, I chose the Shark APEX UpLight Lift-Away DuoClean with Self-Cleaning Brushroll and I couldn’t be happier. I was looking for a good-quality, corded, stick vacuum that could keep up with the daily messes and dog hair on LVP and carpet.
This vacuum checked all of the boxes I was looking for including the lift away canister and self-cleaning brush roll. The pros of this vacuum include: strong suction strength; lift away canister for cleaning upholstery, curtains, and cars; lights to see under furniture; long cord for extra cleaning distance; easy to empty & clean canister & filter.
Some cons of this vacuum include: small canister capacity, which results in having to frequently empty (sometimes 2-3x per room, depending on sq ft); tall and top heavy for shorter-users (I’m 5’2″ but I think someone shorter may have a harder/more uncomfortable time maneuvering it).
While not a deal breaker for me, I think it’s also worth noting that this vacuum has a narrower cleaning path which is something to keep in mind for large homes.
I’ve been using this vacuum once a week for a bit over 2 years. I bought it at Kohl’s in February of 2020. Today a plastic clip at the end of the front roller snapped in half as I was vacuuming. The front roller no longer rotates.
Since it was still only halfway to its 5 year warranty, I called (after finding nowhere on their website) to ask about buying the part. There are no parts diagrams that come with the paperwork. I was told that the broken piece was not covered by warranty and that it would cost $95 to replace the whole head.
I paid $329 for it in 2020? I’ve decided to purchase another vacuum that isn’t a Shark Brand mainly because of their customer service. I was happy with this purchase until today when it broke and I had to deal with customer service.
I’m getting tired of products that don’t take responsibility for their quality issues.
There are no words for how much I hate this vacuum. I am about to write to the president of Shark. What kind of company gives a product away and expects us to put credence in the reviews of those who received the free merchandise? I had a Shark Rocket for years that I loved and when it literally blew up with black smoke pouring out of it, I wanted another Shark.
Sadly the Rocket doesn’t come with a HEPA filter (why not?) so I chose this one with hesitation, but only to get the HEPA. The biggest issue I have is the fact that I can’t turn off the rollers for hard floors and looped Berber carpet.
I was able to do that with the Rocket and the Rocket is much cheaper. It’s not well-balanced, the on/off button is poorly placed, and it’s much harder to clean and empty than the Rocket. I want my Rocket back but with a HEPA filter.
The Shark APEX full-sized upright vacuum delivers Shark’s ultimate cleaning experience. Equipped with Shark DuoClean technology, it grabs large particles, pulls in piles, and directly engages hard floors for a beautiful, polished look.
Powered Lift-Away gives you the ability to detach the pod and clean under furniture and above-floor areas with the push of a button. The Zero-M self-cleaning brushroll delivers nonstop hair removal. Zero-M removes long hair, short hair, and pet hair from the brushroll.
The LED lights on the handle and floor nozzle provide visibility in dark spaces, spotlighting hidden debris. With Advanced Anti-Allergen Complete Seal, dust and allergens are trapped inside the vacuum.
Let me start by saying, I have never left a review, but I felt very compelled to do so for this product. I purchased this vacuum in September, after having owned a few other Sharks – I have always been a huge Shark fan.
that is until now! This vacuum is not the same quality that I am used to from Shark. Immediately upon using, it is very awkward to maneuver, and the floor nozzle that holds the brush roll is defective – meaning it sounds like it is going to break into pieces every time you place your foot on the nozzle to bend the handle backward.
And, then once you finally have the handle back and are ready to begin vacuuming, every time you even need to make a slight turn, it is SO LOUD like plastic breaking. I called Shark and explained the situation, since there is supposed to be a 5 year warranty, and did a video call so that they could see and hear the issues.
The representative did confirm “you definitely have a defective vacuum”, so I thought – Oh, great, they are going to replace my vacuum. WRONG! He proceeded to tell me that eventhough there is a 5 year warranty, the floor nozzle is unfortunately not a covered part.
So he said it was almost $100, but as a courtesy they were willing to offer me 50% off. I advised that was unacceptable seeing as they should stand behind their product, especially after only a few months, and that I should not be on the hook to spend more money for a defective product that I received out of the box.
He placed me on hold and spoke to his “superior” and then came back and said that unfortunately that was the best that they could do. I said I would rather spend my $50 on purchasing another better quality vacuum and I will unfortunately just be trashing this one.
Total waste of money. This vacuum is absolute garbage and I would steer clear if I were you. They clearly are not making the same quality vacuums anymore and they certainly do not stand behind their products.
I hate this vacuum. I have been using it for about 3 years and I have absolutlely had it it with this thing. I’m in the middle of vaccuming my living right now and I had to stop to write this review because I hate it so much.
My old Shark powered lift away was a much better vacuum. There are little teeth on the Apex Duo vacuum that strip hairs from the brush roll but those little teeth catch all manner of things that a vacuum should be able to pick up which then clog the intake and have to be removed by hand.
My Jerky goldendoodle decided to take a paper napkin from the end table that I forgot to pick up before retiring to my slumber and chew it into tiny pieces. I awoke this morning to see my floor covered in such a multitude of white fluffy bits that I initially thought maybe he had murdered a chicken in the night.
I pulled out my trusty Shark Apex Duo and began the to tackle the mess. I instantly realized the most expensive vacuum in the Shark line up is indeed powerfull. it has the power to destroy time itself.
It took what should have been a 30 second task and turned into an entire morning of frustration fueled by bending over, removing the brush roller multiple times and displacing the offending pieces of paper towel that were standing defiantly in front of the intake all while my morning coffe cooled to the point of no return.
I have grown to hate this vacuum and so will you. I am going to smash it with a baseball bat and put it on YouTube, so keep an eye out for That.
Bought this shark duo on Black Friday on the shark website they had an awesome deal that I just couldn’t pass up, my old shark had died after having it for 4 years! I loved that thing! So naturally I knew I had to get another shark… my friend had bought this same one back in the spring and loved it so much she told me to get one, so I did… I love that the bottom plastic top can pop completely off and you can take the orange roller completely off I have not yet taken this roller off yet but find that the window coming completely off is very helpful to get to paper/nerf darts out of without having to take it apart with a screw driver.
I love that I can completely remove the tank and vacuum under my couch the whole way! I tried to do the same for my oversized chair but it’s not as tall as my couch off the floor to get under it… I haven’t yet tried it under my kids beds yet but have no doubt it will be excellent for that too! My bed sits on a box so unfortunately I can’t vacuum under it but love all the attachments it came with… especially the under the appliance wand.
Where has this wand been all my life! How did I live without it! The only downside that I can find as of now for only having it a couple weeks it that it’s a bit heavy so it wouldn’t be a great option for a older person who has weight restrictions(like after a surgery etc.
) I have 2 dogs and I have to vacuum every other day (2 labs) and it doesn’t amazing at getting it all! I love that the wand has a light on it too! I can’t say enough about it! Love love love it!.

Reviews From Real Customers
Let me start by saying this is my favorite vacuum I have used, it works on hardwood, carpet, rugs (even thick ones!), and everything else. However, using this vacuum has a few drawbacks I will address later on, but it doesn’t totally ruin the experience.
Build Quality- This is a Dyson product and like all other Dyson products – is built really well. Zero complaints on how anything feels or fits and is top-notch. Everything is made of plastic however it still feels high quality and I can’t complain about the plastic build because if they used any more premium material it would quickly get very heavy so the well-finished plastic will do.
Attachments- Let me start by saying the laser hardwood attachment will ruin how clean you thought a room was, truly terrifies me that I have that much dust that I can only see with Dyson’s green laser but I am glad it is gone! All the heads on this vacuum are powered, an electrical port travels down the long tub or connects directly should you just plug the head in straight (such as the attachment for your car, works great and leaves those amazing carpet lines in your car) and that’s amazing but it means all the attachment heads will cost more so just a heads up there when you go to buy new or other attachment heads.
I believe this is the first time they are doing the powered heads as my last Dyson (v10?) did not have power running to the attachments. Features- Outside of the laser head attachment, it has a sensor in the vacuum that displays on the small LCD screen how many and what size dust particles it picks up.
I am not sure how accurate it is but either way, it is pretty much a gimic – your house has dust and lots of it but this puts an arbitrary number to it that to me at least doesn’t really matter. The screen is awesome for displaying your power, issues with the filter, and battery life.
Really nice and high-resolution screen for what it is. Outside of those and the new attachment heads and them being powered, it is pretty much the same as every other model except a bit more powerful and a bit more efficient.
Bin- Generally about the same size, with the same issues my last one had. Certainly big enough for my house that’s around 1800sf, can do it in one to two runs which is pretty good in my opinion and certainly not a problem.
If it is, they have the oversized one that is even bigger (and surprise surprise even more $). My issues- Let’s start with my least favorite, this thing clogs often. My dogs don’t shed a lot but for some reason, this thing clogs on their hair and it is due to the design as any small piece of fuzz can clog it.
This is because where the vacuum ejects the debris into the storage container, it is a flat slightly curved surface so any fuzz that isn’t less than 2″ will hit the wall and stop effectively clogging the vacuum and then backlogging the clog into the incoming pipe which can be difficult to pick out.
My second issue is that it can be an actual pain to get the tube to detach from the vacuum and takes me several minutes sometimes to press the red detach button in a sufficient way to eject. My last Dyson had both of these issues that I was hoping to be fixed but nonetheless, here we are.
Conclusions- This is a great vacuum, and I find that my issues are either very minor or only relative to me as most people don’t try and suck up fuzz. That’s ok but my issue is that they tout how powerful this is but my old college vacuum sucked up fuzz no problem.
I think I will continue to buy Dyson vacumes but I would really like to try a shark or one of the competitors to see how it fairs as well. I rated this 4 stars but really I think it is a 3. 5. I think if you are ok not sucking up fuzz this is the best vacuum on the market and it sucks up everything else leaving the BEST carpet lines of all time which really is all that matters here anyways lol.
I purchased the V15 Detect right when it launched in March of 2021. Overall, I’ve been extremely impressed with the performance of the V15 as a primary household vacuum cleaner. The Laser Slim Fluffy cleaner head is an absolute game changer when it comes to bare floor cleaning, and truly shows you how filthy your floors are, and how effective it is at cleaning them thoroughly.
It is so effective at removing fine dust off flooring surfaces that I hope Dyson eventually miniaturizes this cleaner head for use on glass tabletops and granite countertops. The “Hair Screw” tool is equally impressive for removing debris and hair off of any surface without tangling around the brush roll.
The motorized cleaner head with the “anti-tangle comb” is just as effective at removing hair from carpeted surfaces without any entanglement around the brush bar. The motorized cleaner head, coupled with the powerful suction of the V15, has proven to do an exceptional job at deep cleaning carpets in our household on a near daily basis.
Despite the wonderful performance of the V15 Detect, the primary, and significant, drawback of this machine is the propensity of hair tightly wrapping around the “shroud” within the clear bin. My wife’s long hair wraps around the shroud almost instantly, and once that happens, other debris such as cat hair and fluff builds up around the entangled hair.
Although the bin-emptying process involves a red silicon squeegee that is intended to remove all debris from the shroud, most of it is remains wrapped around the shroud. Now it has become routine maintenance to completely remove the clear bin and wipe down everything with a microfiber cloth whenever I need to empty the clear bin, which is essentially every time I vacuum the house.
Because of this issue, I can honestly see myself changing this out for a different model in the near future – perhaps an Outsize. I sincerely hope that Dyson redesigns the whole clear bin/shroud design sooner than later, because I am starting to get tired of having to thoroughly cleaning my machine every time I use it.
I had done extensive research prior to purchasing this vacuum. I had understood the physics of suction and agitation, ergonomics and weight balance, ease of use and creature comforts. I’ve gotta say this particular vacuum nails a lot of things in the head.
I had actually purchased three vacuums and tested them in my home until the return date was due. Since we were looking specifically for cordless I had the Shark Vertex Pro Duoclean, the Miele HX1 Tri-Flex and this Dyson V15 Detect.
All three of them were way above the price range that I had initially thought for a cordless vacuum. But with the addition of a new puppy, a house, two new cars, and kids in the near future, we decided the vacuum would be an investment for time savings and health.
I found this Dyson to correlate with real world testing of its suction and ease of use. This is incredibly lightweight and easy to use. I loved the tiny roller heads that can sneak there way into the furniture and underneath tables and chairs.
With than tiny head came unmatched agitation and power. This has an adjustable gate which allows you to choose between a better seal (higher suction) and more ground clearance to pick up larger items.
Although I have to say a lot of competitors did as well. The battery life with the sensor was stellar on all surfaces. And we were amazed by how well the green laser worked on our hardwood floors to visualize the hairs and dust in what we thought were clean areas.
The headlights on other vacuums are just not the same. People may say the sensor is gimmicky, but it truly benefits the user by sensing particle intake and boosting/reducing motor speed to provide a deeper clean while saving battery when not needed.
The parts themselves feel slightly plasticky, but robust enough to not worry about hitting them against furniture or stairs under normal use. Other vacuums we had looked at and tested may have felt more cheap and still were weighty.
I would highly recommend this product if the budget allows and you are looking for a vacuum that doesn’t have water filtration or a lot of maintenance.
This powerful Shark 2-in-1 Lift-Away upright black vacuum features a detachable pod for portable cleaning power. With the push of a button, Lift-Away technology allows you to detach the pod and easily clean above the floor on furniture, stairs, and more.
This vacuum is also equipped with a large-capacity dust cup and Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology, plus a HEPA filter to trap dust and allergens. Powerful cleaning tools are included to tackle stubborn pet hair, tight spaces, and more.
There would be signs of use such as scratches and dents on the product.
This vacuum has several thing I like: color, locked in pieces, works for multiple floors and cleaning areas. The locking pieces are important to me. There is nothing I hate more than using an attachment and the hose comes out.
This vacuum makes sure every piece locks. The vacuum is powerful and cleans every area (vinyl floors, carpet, ceiling fan, corners, etc…). We have pets and live in the Midwest so dust and dirt are frequent issues.
This vacuum vacuums up the dog hair and dust without blowing it every where. While you think that wouldn’t be an issue with vacuum cleaners it is. This one vacuums up the finest of dirt. That is important.
It has a long cord and accessories that allows me to get every corner of my house. The con I have is it is a little heavy if lifting up for a long time. While it is lighter than most, I definitely need something to hold it when I clean my popcorn ceiling and fans.

I bought this after a lot of thought as it was quite a lot of money to spend on a vacuum. It has been a year since I bought this Dyson and I can confirm it is worth every penny. Upon arrival, the Dyson was boxed neatly and securely.
Inside the box there was the vacuum itself and all its attachments – one for every household need. It also came with its charger and wall mount for those who want to wall mount the charger. I charged the vacuum up for about 4 hours and it reached its full charge (3 blue bars).
Straight away I loved that the vacuum was extremely easy to put together and the attachments were all straightforward enough. You have 3 strength / suction settings on the Dyson (I usually stay on the middle one for my hard-wearing carpets and the low one for my linoleum floors) which you can easily increase / decrease with the sliding button.
I have bad mobility issues so I had to choose a vacuum carefully, the one thing I love about this Dyson is that it’s very lightweight and flexible. Another perk is how easy it is to empty and clean the vacuum.
The main downside for me, is that you have to keep a hold on the button for the vacuum to operate, it would be great if all you had to do was push it to turn the vacuum on then push again to turn it off.
If you have arthritic hands or a hand disability I don’t think it would be a suitable vacuum for you as it can tire the hand a little bit. The vacuum picks cat hairs up excellently, it always amazes me at how much it collects as the carpets never look that bad, but the vacuum says otherwise! For me, the battery lasts about 30-45 minutes which is perfect time.
If you need a bit more time and don’t want to wait 4 hours on the vacuum charging all you need is a second battery! If you buy a second battery then you’ll get 60-90 minutes of operating time which is sure to be enough time to vacuum your home from top to bottom.
Overall, this vacuum is excellent and really lives up to its claims and description. The quality is fabulous and it doesn’t feel cheap, it is very sturdy. It’s a great investment, especially if you have mobility issues (other than hands).
I purchased this vacuum to replace another Dyson. I was excited to start anew with a cordless. I had too high expectations for this one and for the price I would have expected more from it. First, my requirements for this vacuum were to be able to go over bare floors as well as carpet, simple right? Over the bare floors it was great but it was unable to move on any of my carpets, throw rugs or otherwise.
There is no adjustment for multiple piles. Second, there is no light on this machine. I’ve purchased cheaper vacuums which come with lights and it’s one of the best features! Third, the battery life is horrible! If you’re thinking you can vacuum a 2200 sq home without recharging the battery you would be wrong! Fourth, as simple as it sounds or maybe petty this vacuum does not have a lock button.
Meaning when you vacuum you must physically hold the power button the entire time. It’s not a big deal if you are cleaning a small area quickly however when you’re running the vacuum throughout the entire house it becomes a nuisance and creates a blister on your trigger finger.
I thought I was holding it too aggressively but I’m now creating a callus from having to clean with this machine. I have owned 4 Dyson machines. I loved them all and even wore them out only to replace them with another Dyson.
I’ve finally purchased other vacuums for cheaper price points that have all these features and are able to clean just as well if not better. This is the worst vacuum I have ever owned.
