Carpets are one of the most frustrating things to clean, and sometimes we just get this feeling that there’s still some dirt in there. This is precisely why you should look for a vacuum that has both a strong suction and a good system to keep dirt from coming out.
Naturally, you can’t keep buy and test out every vacuum in the market but lucky for you, we’re here to help with that! Check out our reviews and see what we (and many others!) have said about the best vacuums in the market.

What we liked
No Suction Loss
A feature that is unique to the Dyson brand is their Root Cyclone technology that gives you consistently powerful suction. The suction power for this specific model is pretty strong too, so you’ll love how it maintains that power as you clean.
Unlike other vacuum cleaners, it doesn’t use an airbag, so it won’t collect dust and eventually clog the airflow. High centrifugal force is used to send dust directly to the container at the same time preventing backflow.
Efficient Filtration System
One of the many features that people want to see in a vacuum is a HEPA Filter system. This vacuum comes with two HEPA filters that are washable, so you don’t need to keep replacing them. This technology picks up all the little dust and dirt in the air and only releases clean air.
If you have sensitive allergies or asthmatic, the Dyson DC33 is the perfect vacuum for you. In fact, even the Allergy & Asthma Foundation of America deem this vacuum as one of the safest around! To keep your excellent filtration system clean, manufacturer’s suggest washing them every three months.
Live in a big house? Or maybe you’re a house cleaner for some wide building. Either way, we guarantee that you’ll cover a lot of ground with this one. It has a cord length of 35 feet that is just enough (if not a little more) than what a regular household needs!
This is perfect if you don’t have a lot of outlets or just generally don’t want to keep plugging and unplugging your vacuum every time. The only downside to this though is that it’s not retractable.
Easy to Clean Bin
If you’ve always had trouble cleaning out your vacuum bin, then rest assured that you won’t be having trouble with the Dyson DC33. All it takes is a quick flip of the switch, and the bottom opens out easy.
Even if it’s halfway or entirely full, you can just shake it out to make all the dust and dirt fall. Make sure you remember to place the bin over a trash can or bag before flipping the switch, though!
Large Dust Bin
On top of being easy to clean, this vacuum has a larger dust container compared to other models. This goes really well with the strong suction because it ends up sucking twice the amount of dust than normal vacuums, so a larger bin is necessary. It’s also transparent. You can watch all the things you’ve sucked up circling inside the bin as you work.
Strong and Durable Material
Don’t worry about being a little careless and accidentally bumping the front because this vacuum can handle it. It is made with durable polycarbonate, which is a plastic known for being sturdy and lightweight.
Users can attest that this vacuum can handle both being smashed into a wall as well as being manhandled by a kid. It can handle years of work and on the slight chance you do get a crack, there’s always that 5-year warranty to fall back on.
From hardwood floors to tiles and carpeted stairs, you can take this vacuum to clean just about anywhere. It has a few brush attachments that help it adjust to any kind of flooring. For one, its brush bar keeps it from scratching up hardwood floors. There are a stair brush and an upholstery brush that work well for deep cleaning types of furniture and mattresses.
What really makes the Dyson DC33 popular, though, is how well it works on carpets. The carpet brush on it spins as you work, so it pushes carpet hair aside to really get the dirt inside. You’ll notice that it might leave some dents on the carpet, but that just shows that it’s actually doing its job!
Extra Reach with the Wand
You might have a hard time lifting this vacuum up as it is, but what you miss in reach is compensated by the telescopic wand. It extends up to 14 feet, so you vacuum up to those upper corners of the room. The wand is relatively easy to use if not a little stiff says the users. This feature is a bit of a hit-and-miss at first, but users in Amazon say it just takes a little getting used to!
What we don’t like
Bulky and Heavy
On the other hand, the Dyson DC33 has a few design features that users are not fond of. For one, the overall design is a bit bulky, so you’re going to have a hard time squeezing into corners and tight spots. The front part of this vacuum is pretty big too, so cleaning under furniture might require some extra work.
Thankfully, you have a hose to help you out with this one. Also, it’s a bit heavier than other models with a weight of 17 pounds. Expect to put a little more effort when pushing this one around.
Moderate Noise Level
One thing that we have to say about its noise level is that it’s not exactly a downside, but it could be better. The noise isn’t exactly loud and unbreakable, but it’s not as silent either. It has decent enough level that lets you have a normal conversation, though.
The reader says it has 75 and 80 decibels of noise, which is actually just a normal amount of noise. Similar well-loved brands and models have roughly the same amount of noise. There are a handful of people who complained about the noise, but that doesn’t take away from the experience too much.
What do users say?
This model from Dyson has generally good reviews with an Amazon rating of 4.1 stars. A lot of users are extremely satisfied with the power and filtration system, so no argument there. There are a few disagreements about some of its features. There are some who feels that it’s too heavy while others say it’s lightweight.
The same goes for its noise level, which has mixed reviews. The telescopic reach wand also starts a few discussions on its own with some people loving it and others not so much.
If there’s something that all users agreed on though, it’s that it can clean just about any surface and works especially well on carpets. A lot of users love how it just gets dirt that they never even knew existed on their floors. They also note that you can even physically see the hairs on the floor being sucked up by the vacuum. There’s no question about the performance of this model.
What’s out verdict for this vacuum? It’s definitely one you should consider getting for your own home. All of its features have been tried and tested by hundreds of users, so you can take our word that it delivers. If you’re still unsure, just know that it comes from a very reliable and trusted brand.
There have been no complaints about the brand and its customer service so on the rare case chance that you have a problem with your vacuum, your concerns will be addressed.
This vacuum also delivers when it comes to its important features, mainly the Root Cyclone technology and the certified HEPA filter. This is a vacuum that you should get if you live in a household that’s sensitive to allergies and asthma. It makes sure to keep dust out of the air.
