Description of Dyson DC24 Multi Floor Upright Vacuum Cleaners
Dyson's futuristic design is all about function. Loaded with unique technology, the Dyson Ball vacuum cleaners offer a huge improvement in maneuverability over a traditional stocky upright vacuum cleaner. By replacing the conventional fixed 4 wheel design with a ball, the Dyson Ball Upright Vacuum Cleaners can make a 90 degree turn with just a flick of the wrist. The DC24 Multi Floor is compact and ultra lightweight. Its superior suction power makes it an ideal choice for houses with lots of carpeting or pets, and the ability to turn the brush bar off allows it to be used on bare floors and delicate rugs. The DC24 is extremely affordable to own because it's bagless and uses washable HEPA filters. Backed by Dyson's 5 year warranty, you can be confident in your new purchase.

The Dyson DC24 upright vacuum with the ball technology is a light and very maneuverable upright that provides plenty of suction power. The DC24 has an ultra-compact design that is great for smaller apartments or condos.
These vacuums have an effective filtration system and are certified allergy and asthma friendly. Our testing results showed the vacuums are a sealed system and do not leak dust particles back into the room and their exhaust filters are 93% effective at capturing all particles larger than 0.3 microns.
The Dyson vacuum's are easy to assemble and every piece clicks into place with minimal effort.
Dyson Ball™ technology make these vacuums very easy to maneuver and they turn on a dime to easily fit around furniture and corners.
Root Cyclone™ technology provides strong suction power for excellent pick-up, even when the dust bin starts to fill up.
Non-bulky design is compact and lightweight. The DC24's handle compresses to make it shorter and easier to fit in a closet for storage.
The power head has very good suction power and aggressive brush roll action to deep clean carpets. We noticed these vacuums sucked up dirt that other vacuums left behind.
The large foot pedal to release the vacuum from its upright position is easy for everyone to use.
The large push button power and rug/bare floor controls are located at the base of the vacuum handle and easy to access when vacuum is in the reclined (in use) position.
No bags to replace and filters are washable.
The dust bin removes easily for emptying with a push of a button and it is easy to access the filter which is a must since the filters require washing every 3 months.
The accessory tools, stretch hose and wand are integrated on the vacuum and always ready to use for cleaning high or hard reach places.
Dyson offers an excellent warranty that covers parts and labor for 5 years.
Though the power head is compact it is not designed to be able to reach under furniture and the ball obstructs the power head's ability to offer edge cleaning under kitchen cabinets.
Only has edge cleaning ability on one side of power head.
We would have liked the vacuums to have a suction adjustment and carpet height adjustment on the power head because the strong suction made it difficult to vacuum small rugs and it had a lot of resistance when used on high pile carpet such as shag.
The single speed motor produces a fair amount of noise. We would not call these vacuums quiet, but they are not unbearably loud and you can vacuum without hurting your ears.
We were not overly impressed with the onboard accessory tools. The DC24 has one combination accessory tool that is a dust brush and an upholstery tool and neither is that effective at its job.
The power cord on DC24 vacuum is only 20 ft long. This is short for an upright vacuum where the average power cord is somewhere between 30-40 ft long. In larger homes you will have to change power outlets more frequently.
Emptying the dust bin is not allergy friendly. Though the filtration of these vacuums is allergy and asthma friendly, emptying the dust bin is not. Regardless of the fact you do not have to touch the dirt to empty the bin, when the bottom of the bin pops open and the dirt falls out, a dust cloud of particles is released back into the air and can trigger allergies or asthma. We recommend emptying the dust bin outside of the house and use a filtering face mask.
We were not sure what to expect when we tested the Dyson Ball™ DC24 vacuum cleaners and as a result we were pleasantly surprised. The DC24 is ultra-compact and the dynamics of the Ball™ technology truly reduced the amount of effort needed to control and maneuver the vacuum around the house. We were impressed by the DC24's suction power and its ability to pick-up pet hair was one of the best we have seen. The Dyson DC24 vacuum is a great choice for a smaller-sized home with carpeting. Ideal for apartments, condos, boat houses, camps or as a second vacuum in a multiple level home.
