The Dyson DC31 actually sucks and when it comes to vacuum cleaners that deserves and A+. Last year about this very same time I reviewed a handheld vacuum and I was very disappointed in it because it didn’t suck very well. The Dyson DC31 Animal handheld is a much happier story because it did clean my floor. In fact it was so easy to use and as far as vacuums go very quite. So quite that Miles even felt comfortable using it.

The Dyson DC31 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner retails for about 219.00 making it a bit on the expensive side, but sometimes you really do get what you pay for. My only wish would be that it would have a bag. As easy as it is to clean out, I would love it even more if somehow it included a bag. That’s the only negative I can come up with. Oh wait, the battery life is really small. So it would be good to find a place to leave it plugged in so it’s always charged up and ready to go.
Dyson is known for it’s powerful products. They product excellent hand blowers in bathrooms, bladeless fans, and excellent vacuums. I have quite a few issues being able to vacuum my staircase. The Hoover Vacuum that I have is just so heavy that lugging it up and down the stairs while trying to vacuum is impossible. The Dyson DC31 Animal Cordless Vacuum is a handheld vac that you use in small areas, in the car and for quick pick ups. I read that it was designed for animal owners so it works great on furniture at removing animal hair. Remember it is best used on small projects because the battery life is from 6 to 15 minutes depending on what power setting you are using it on. It has a short battery life to account for how powerful it is. The Dyson DC31 is a very strong vacuum, sucking up all of the dirt in it’s path.
The vacuum is completely put together except for the attachments and it is quite easy to snap them on and off. Then you can clean it easily by popping it open and dumping out the dirt.
