Dyson DC33 Multi floor
The Dyson DC33 Multi floor is extremely lightweight and, as its name suggests, can be used on every type of floor. It can cope with carpeted, tiled, laminated and wood floors with no problem whatsoever, and switching from one surface to another is completely fuss free. Although it has strong vacuuming power it won’t blow dust around on the wood floors or damage the pile on carpeted floors — it just cleans very well, with very powerful suction.
Another one of Dyson’s bagless vacuum cleaners, the DC33 features a 2.3 litre capacity which far outstrips some of the other models the iconic company has created. With bagless vacuum cleaners being much cleaner to empty as you don’t end up with dust all down yourself, they’re also much quicker to empty — partially because you don’t have to faff around with the actual bag and partially because you won’t have to clean up the dust you got everywhere whilst trying to remove the bag.
The bagless filter on the Dyson DC33 Multi floor is cyclonic and features a HEPA filter. HEPA filters are able to stop the majority of dust and pet fur particles escaping from the cleaner, so if you’re allergic to dust or per hair then it can prevent your allergies playing up so much. It’s very lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, too — although not as easy as the Ball version.
The main problem with the Dyson DC33 Multi floor is the hose and the accessories. The tools are larger and bulky, so cleaning in small nooks and crannies is difficult and the brush isn’t thick enough to cope with tough dirt. The plastic extendable hose is stiff and awkward to use — when pulled out it tries to go back in, so you end up with only a little bit of hose to use and you have to pull the body of the cleaner around the room. If you like to use the tools that come with a cleaner, this is a serious drawback.
