This is an in-depth review for a Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal and Allergy Vacuum Cleaner and as the Dyson brand claims it is an only vacuum cleaner with strong suction that works without a filter, specifically designed for pet owners and people who suffer from allergens.
Let’s see all benefits that this upright vacuum cleaner from Dyson offers to the customers and how much there is a truth in what all the Dyson claims.
Here we have another more model of a vacuum cleaner from the well-known company Dyson and the model is the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy. I think this is one of the longest names for a vacuum cleaner.
As you can see from the image this vacuum cleaner has three recognizable parts on its body as a big ball with a motorized head, dust canister with a cinetic cyclone technology for air filtration on top and the wand with a handle and necessary attachments on it. It doesn’t look much different from the other products from this brand like Dyson Ball Animal 2 and the Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2.
When you take a look at this model you will notice its futuristic design where dominate the sleek silver color across the body with noticeable parts colored in red. At first sight, this gives to the vacuum cleaner a great visual attractiveness and aggressiveness. But, let see what is hiding behind that attractiveness and aggressiveness. What the manufacturer Dyson claims about this vacuum cleaner and what customers say from their experiences.
The Size, Dimensions, and Weight of the Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy
This is a vacuum cleaner with a large body which its main dimensions are 13.4 inches (34 cm) width, 43.3 inches (110 cm) height, and 17.2 inches (43.66 cm) length. It weighs 19.2 pounds (about 8.7 Kg). It has 35 feet long (about 10.66 meters) cord and together with a length of the flexible hose and the wand, you will get a maximum cleaning reach of 50 feet (about 15.24 meters) and a 13.4 inches (34 cm) wide cleaning path of the motor-head.
What is the Suction Power of the Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy? Comparing the Animal Ball Animal 2 as a vacuum cleaner with the mightiest suction power of 270 AW and its smaller brother Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2 with 250 AW, the Cinetic Big Ball Animal Plus Allergy has 180 AW which is far less suction power than the upper two top models. But, it doesn’t mean this vacuum cleaner cannot provide great cleaning performances.
The Main Selling Features for Cinetic Big Ball Animal Allergy
The Self-Adjusting Head
The base of the cleaning head has an ability to self-adjust automatically when you do transit from a carpet to a hard floor.
The Dyson’s Ball Technology
The integrated Big Ball technology lowers the gravity center of the vacuum cleaner and provides you more convenient maneuverability and better stability.
Extra Easy Emptying of the Dust Canister
The dust canister is another great feature of this vacuum cleaner. It has a capacity of 0.6 gallons (about 2.27 Liters) and it’s transparent so you can see when it will become full to be emptied. When you need to empty the dust canister you will realize how much is simplified this process with just only two clicks on the release button (the red tab) which is located on the dust canister’s handle.
First, you need to press the release button to detach the dust canister and to bring it over the trash bin and the next step is to press again the red tab ( or the release button) to get rid of all dirty staff that has been collected in the dust canister.
You need to know: the main problem as well a disadvantage about the bagless vacuum cleaners that is never been solved is the releasing of a small amount of dust and allergens the moment when you empty the dust canister. This can be a nightmare for hypersensitive people on dust and other airborne allergens. If you are facing this problem or another member in your family and if your wish is to have only an upright vacuum cleaner then there are only two solutions for this problem to be solved.
- The first solution: is to consider buying a high-quality bagged upright vacuum cleaner with a real HEPA filtration and complete air-sealed system and our recommendation is Miele Dynamic U1 Cat and Dog or you can check our top choice of HEPA certified vacuum cleaners.
- The second solution: when the time comes to empty the dust canister, do it outside from your house in a garbage bin or a plastic bag, so on this way, you can prevent the releasing of the dust and allergens inside your home.
Dyson Cinetic Science Technology
In all of the vacuum cleaners from Dyson is implemented the Cyclon Radial Root Technology that generates high centrifugal forces into the cyclones to separate the dust and allergens from the air and push them into the dust bin. But the problem with this technology is that many times the filter and cyclones (cones) are getting clogged which results with losing the suction power of vacuum cleaner.
So, to solve this problem Dyson is implementing a new Cinetic Science Technology. This technology makes the tips of the cones to be flexible so they can vibrate and oscillate at a high frequency and makes the spinning air together with the dust and all allergens to go through the center of the cones with high speed. Because of the high speed of the spinning air and the flexibilities of the tips of the cones the dust cannot build-up on inside the walls of the cones and to block them which mean the vacuum cleaner will provide all the time a constant suction power.
