Dyson DC25 Animal Ball Recap

With a home daycare and three kids of our own our rugs get pretty dirty from all of the traffic. We had an upright vacuum that we have used for the last three years that cost under $100 but it never really cleaned the rugs like I would have liked. In comes Dyson to the rescue.

I know I am a guy but I was excited when we received the Dyson DC25 Animal Ball for analysis. The Dyson DC25 Animal is designed for pet hair pickup but is also great even if you don’t have pets in the house. Currently we do not have pets but are planning on it in the future so this vacuum is going to be perfect once we get a cat or dog.
The ball technology that is part of the Dyson DC25 Animal Ball is a feature that is new to me and took me a few times to get used to since I have used fixed uprights my whole life. The ball allows you to maneuver the vacuum really easy around corners and furniture but I must admit the first few times I used the vacuum I hit the wall and furniture a few times but thankfully nothing was damaged. I also like the root cyclone technology that is patented by Dyson because you don’t lose suction power while you vacuum. Lose of suction was the number one problem with our old vacuum which really caused a lot of frustration.

All Dyson upright and canister vacuums are bagless which is awesome because there is no need to buy pricey replacements bags and the filters are also washable so no need to replace those either. Another cool thing is all upright and canister vacuums come with a 5 year warranty which covers parts and labor. All uprights, canisters, handhelds and fans bought online from are shipped for free.

Sabreena does most of the vacuuming in our house but since we have received the Dyson I have been doing my part in keeping the rugs clean. So far I am really impressed with the Dyson DC25 Animal Ball vacuum. The ball technology is really easy to get use to and the Quick-draw Telescope Reach wand with the mini turbine head makes it really easy to clean our two sets of stairs. The bin capacity is .31 gallons which allows you to vacuum for about a week without having to empty the dirt. The power cord wraps around the back of the vacuum but the one thing that would make this vacuum that much better would be a retractable power cord. Other than that small suggestion I have zero complaints about the Dyson DC25 Animal Ball. To tell you the truth this is the best vacuum that I have ever owned. I always wondered why Dyson vacuums were so expensive but after using one for the last few weeks this Dyson is worth every penny of its retail price of $549.00.
