Dyson Parts FAQ: What does it all really mean?

Why is it important to use only genuine Dyson parts?

Dyson is the only parts manufacturer that makes replacement Dyson parts to the original manufacturer’s standard.  This means that the spare parts made by Dyson are of equivalent quality to those that ship inside Dyson vacuums.  By purchasing genuine Dyson replacement parts, all of the parts in your vacuum will be one consistent, high quality standard.

How can I prolong the life of my Dyson filter?

The Dyson DC07, DC14, DC15, DC17, and DC18 upright vacuums have a washable pre-motor filter that, with proper maintenance, should last the lifetime of your vacuum and never require replacement.  Some Dyson models also include a washable post-motor filter.  In order to optimize the performance of your Dyson vacuum, you should wash the filter or filters every six months with regular use.  Keep in mind that if you use your vacuum more frequently, the filters will require more frequent cleaning.  Rinse and wash the filters with clean water and allow them to completely dry before reinserting them back into your vacuum.  Do not use detergent.  It is essential that your filters completely dry before being returned to your vacuum, otherwise they could mold and decay.  By washing your filters every six months and allowing them to dry thoroughly, you’ll experience many long years of usage out of your Dyson filters and Dyson vacuum.

What does Cyclone mean in connection to Dyson vacuums?

Dyson makes use of a technology called Root Cyclone or Radial Root Cyclone.  Within a Dyson vacuum is a part called the “cyclone head.”  In these chambers, air is spun at extraordinary speeds, generating up to 313,000G force.  While the air continues on to the filter, most of the dirt, debris, and dust is forcibly removed by centrifugal force into the clear dust bin.  This allows your Dyson vacuum to maintain a constant, steady air flow while achieving no loss of suction.  Most vacuums lose suction because the filters become clogged with dirt or debris, but with your Dyson, most of the debris is already long separated from the air before it even reaches the filter!  That’s being proactive!

What does HEPA mean, and why is it capitalized?  I bet it’s an acronym!

That’s correct: HEPA is an acronym that stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air.  A HEPA filter is a type of air filter designed to capture 99.97% of all air particles down to a size of 0.3 µm (micrometers or microns).  The HEPA filter in Dyson vacuums capture particles down to 0.1 µm.  That is approximately one ten-thousandth of a millimeter, known in layman’s terms as “very small indeed.”  A human hair has a diameter of about 90 µm, and a bacterium is typically sized between 1 µm and 10 µm.  Thus, a HEPA filter is able to capture bacteria out of the air.  Many Dyson vacuums use HEPA filters to capture the finest dust and pollen grains that may have escaped their CycloneTM or Root CycloneTM technology. 

I have allergies; can a Dyson vacuum help me alleviate my symptoms?

All Dyson upright vacuums meet or exceed industry standards for removing allergen dust that has become embedded in the carpets of your home.  Furthermore, Dyson vacuums were the very first vacuums to be certified to be “asthma and allergy friendly” by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.  The HEPA filter is guaranteed to trap pollen, dust, mold spores and pet dander, eliminating many common allergy and asthma triggers.  Dyson Cyclone technology is engineered to further retain 99.9% of dust and debris from vacuuming.  Thus, your Dyson vacuum vents air that is up to 150 times cleaner than the air you breathe.

Dyson also sells an Asthma and Allergy Kit with three tools to help reduce the allergens in your home.  The Soft Dusting Brush helps clean pollen and dust from window blinds, fans, and appliances around your home.  The Flexi Crevice Tool takes care of dust that has fallen between furniture and in tight spaces.  The Mattress Tool helps you remove pollens and other allergens that have become embedded in upholstery, furniture, and mattresses.

I just moved into a new home and there is a nasty stain in one of the carpets.  Can Dyson help me get rid of it?

Dyson offers a number of carpet care options beyond vacuum cleaners.  You may want to try the Dyson Dyzolv spot cleaner spray or the Dyson Zorb powder.  The Dyson Dyslv spot cleaner contains four active ingredients to clean soil based stains, oil based stains, grease, and food or drink based stains.  The Dysolv spot cleaner is safe for wool and stain-resistant carpet.  The Dyson Zorb powder is a powerful stain removing material that is also safe for wool and stain-resistant carpets.  The Dyson Zorb powder contains miniscule stain-fighting sponges that bind to the particles of the stain and lift them away from your carpet, allowing you two vacuum it away a half-hour later.  If you order the Dyson Carpet Cleaning Kit, you will get both the Dysolv and the Zorb, along with the Zorb Groomer tool designed to help you maximize the effectiveness of the Zorb powder.

How can Dyson vacuums help me clean up after my pets?

We at love pets as much as any other pet owner, and so does Dyson.  That is why Dyson offers “Animal” model vacuums in many of their vacuum series.  The Animal models have additional accessories to aid you in cleaning up such things as hair and dander.  This helps you keep ahead of pet-related allergies.  The Dyson Animal model vacuums are very convenient, and rather stylish in coloration.

Dyson also offers a Pet Clean-Up Kit, which gives you the Flexi Crevice Tool, Mattress Tool, Carpet Groomer, Dysolv, and Zorb.  This kit allows you to clean hard to reach places and to tackle stains in your fabrics or carpets.

The Dyson Groom Tool kit is another great option for dog owners.  In addition to the Zorb powder and carpet grooming tool, the Groom tool kit also comes with a stiff bristle brush to ensure that your carpets are well protected from anything your dog brings into the house.  This Groom kit also comes with Dyson Animal parts including the Dyson Groom Tool, which allows you to brush your dog and remove loose hair.  This is the perfect tool to help keep your home clean during shedding season.

What tools does Dyson have that help me clean my car?

Dyson offers a Car Cleaning Kit with a number of hand tools.  The Flexi Crevice Tool helps you reach around obstacles and between seats.  The Stiff Bristle Brush makes short work of dirt and dried mud that has been caked or ground into your carpet.  The Tangle Free Turbine Tool is perfect for removing hair and other long fibrous material from upholstery, and you won’t have to worry about it tangling up the brush roller because it doesn’t have one.  The unique design eliminates the need for a tangled-up mess.

Wow, those kits sound swell!  Are there any other vacuum tool kits offered by Dyson?

The Dyson Home Cleaning Kit offers you a Multi Angle Dust Brush that allows you to clean a variety of challenging locations in your home: ceiling fans, cabinets, the top of the refrigerator, and more!  The Soft Dusting Brush helps you to dust the more delicate surfaces in your home and the Stiff Bristle Brush loosens up dirt that has been ground into your carpets.
