Take home cleaning to the next level with Dyson’s V15 Detect, the brand’s most powerful cordless vacuum yet
When it comes to buying a vacuum cleaner, every home has a different need. Some seek a machine that works on dust mites, mattresses and bedding. Others may need help with pet hair and dander. Add small, hard-to-reach corners, fragile surfaces like your television and awkward gaps in the car, and you will rarely find one machine that does it all.
We’ve got news for you. The newly launched Dyson V15 Detect along with the brand’s latest attachment tool offer, can indeed do all that and more!
Dyson’s most powerful and intelligent cordless vacuum to date, the V15 Detect comes with all the bells and whistles of a Dyson product and a practicality that is hard to beat.
Read on as we review the Dyson V15 Detect and the new attachment tools to see if these make the mark for your home.
Pet Hair, No Care!
Effectively removing pet hair is a skill but did you know that there’s plenty more that may be escaping your eyes? According to the Dyson Global Dust Study*, 1 in 2 pet owners** in Singapore allow their pets to sleep on their beds. And yet only 2 in 10 pet owners are aware that house mite faeces can reside on their pets!
Pet dander with dried-on saliva is a real problem as these microscopic particles can carry allergy-causing proteins around the home. Lightweight and invisible to the human eye, they can remain airborne for hours or transfer between objects. Research has even found cat allergens in rooms where cats have never been!
Lucky for us, the proper filtration found in Dyson helps maintain a cleaner whole-home environment.
The latest Dyson Pet Groom tool is engineered to remove your pet’s loose hair, pet dander and microscopic skin flakes in an instant. You don’t have to buy the latest machine to use it either! The Dyson Pet Groom tool has backward compatibility so it can work with Dyson’s cordless range(V8, V10, V11, V12, V15 and Digital Slim vacuums). Simply brush your pooch with the grooming tool and then watch it suck up all that fur, dust and dander.
Advanced De-Tangling Technology
The Dyson V15 Detect was engineered for homes with pets, and comes with a new brush technology that can handle all types of hair - animal or human!
Dyson’s Global Dust Study revealed that nearly half of pet owners in Singapore groom their pets at home at least once a week, and 8 in 10 of them only groom with a brush or comb. While this may reduce the amount of pet hair they shed around the home; microscopic particles remain on their pets that can potentially spread around the home.
Inspired by a detangling comb, the brush bar on the V15 Detect features 56 hair removal vanes, precisely angled to help migrate all hair types directly into the cleaner head. These polycarbonate teeth, combined with a set of spiralling nylon bristles, anti-static carbon fibre filaments, and super-strong suction power, tackle troublesome tangles, and other debris and microscopic dust. In the simplest of terms, this latest de-tangling technology automatically clears any wrapped hair from the brush bar - so you don’t have to!
Powerful AND Versatile
When we say the Dyson V15 Detect is their most powerful and intelligent vacuum yet, we are not holding back. This power-packed machine has been engineered with 240AW and a laser to reveal microscopic dust. Versatile in its use, you can adapt it to floors, carpets, mattresses and hard-to-reach corners - that’s up to 60 minutes of powerful, fade-free suction.
Oh wait, it is also detachable which means you can easily convert it into a handheld vacuum for your car, sofas or nifty corners. It truly is the big daddy of whole home cleaning!
Also available (exclusively from Dyson), is theDyson V15 Detect™ Absolute (HEPA) which comes with an upgraded HEPA post-motor filter to trap even more microscopic particles. As small as 0.1 microns! This makes it Dyson’s most hygienic vacuum and best filtration in a cordless vacuum.
And the gold and teal colours make it a coveted special edition that you will want to keep!
Laser Detect - Can Cleaning Be This Much Fun?
Would you believe us if we said that cleaning with the Dyson V15 Detect is ‘actually’ fun? Blame its key technology(first introduced in the V12 Detect Slim), Laser Dust Detection which reveals hidden dust particles with a precisely angled laser. Aim at a dusty patch and watch the laser illuminate all of your hidden secrets. Vacuum it up and go back to check - yes, it indeed is as entertaining!
Dyson engineers have developed a technology(Piezo sensor) that also allows you to measure the amount of dust detected and then display it on an LCD screen. The dust size and quantity are shown on the in-built LCD screen, so the user can see how much dust the vacuum has removed, as well as the different sizes of particles. How’s that for real-time proof of a deep clean!
The vacuums have been designed so that they automatically increase suction power when there’s a large amount of dust. This happens in auto mode, so when the piezo sensor detects high concentrations of dust, a reactive suction power is triggered to automatically increase in power. When this dust level normalises, suction power is reduced to its previous level.
TV Screens, Fragile Surfaces and Hard to Clean Corners
How often have you struggled to clean your screen at home? When it comes to cleaning fragile surfaces such as television and computer screens, soft cloths and brushes seem to be the only way out. Until now!
With Dyson’s revolutionary Detail Cleaning Kit, you get a Scratch-free Dusting Brush, a self-cleaning ultra-soft dusting brush to avoid scratching delicate surfaces. While traditional dusting tools may use coarse bristles to agitate dirt which can inadvertently scratch surfaces, Dyson’s new Scratch-free Dusting Brush comes with 8,100 ultrafine and densely packed Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) polymer filaments - a material inspired by fine paint and makeup brushes. These bristles are tapered to just 0.05mm, to avoid scratching delicate surfaces.
There’s also the Awkward Gap Tool which twists 22 degrees giving you the optimum angle for cleaning those hardest-to-reach places around your home or car. Multiple prototypes tested at varying angles revealed that this is the optimum angle for cleaning the hardest-to-reach places around your home or vehicle. With a width of just 12.5mm and 254mm reach, it is engineered to reach and clean deep into narrow gaps. These two new attachments are part of Dyson’s full suite of 12 vacuum cleaner accessories, so give every user the right tool for every cleaning need.
Our Thoughts on the Dyson V15 Detect + New Attachment Tools
If you love a clean house, then be prepared to be shocked, embarrassed even! The V15 Detect goes all out to make your home a cleaner space, and it tells it like it is.
Switch on the laser lights and the very definition of clean changes. Hidden dust, dander, fibres, and the works. The good news is that one swipe takes any of the disgusting remnants away. The bad? You don’t want to put the laser beam down!
Heightened OCD levels aside, another big plus is its hair-detangling technology. No more having to remove hair from bristles and brushes(yuck!)! The conical structure is made to deal with long hair and it does - just to be sure, we used it on all types of flooring including carpeting.
In a world where multiple vacuum cleaners per household are the norm, here’s one that can hold up to every demand - your car, pets, mattresses, naughty corners, sofas and more. And it is the strongest and wisest of all Dysons. What more do you need!
The Dyson V15 Detect, Pet Grooming Tool and Detail Cleaning Kit(including both the Awkard Gap Tool and Scratch-free Dusting Brush) is available at Dyson’s estore and multiple retailers islandwide.
