CREATING HEALTHIER HOMES: THE DYSON V15
After having spent most of our time inside and in our homes in the last year due to the pandemic, healthy interiors are now more important than ever. Enter the latest Dyson V15: making deep cleaning easier, fuss-free and attainable.
When it came to selecting a vacuum cleaner for Stay Casita, we knew that it had to be Dyson. Having had one in our homes for many years, we were excited to include the new Dyson V15 into our latest space and to test its capabilities. As the most powerful model to date, the intelligent cordless V25 is capable of detecting, removing, sizing and counting microscopic dust for scientific proof of a deep clean.
Developed by a team of 370 engineers globally, the Dyson V15 Detect uses a Hyperdymium motor to generate powerful suction and 5-stage filtration captures 99.99% of dust particles down to 0.3 microns for a deep clean. The Dyson V15 Detect helps create a healthier home at a time when 60% of people are cleaning more than ever before.
Here's a checklist of the Dyson V15's capabilities:
Laser engineered for hard floors. Effectiveness of laser influenced by ambient light conditions, debris type and surface.
Suction tested to IEC 62885-4 CL5.8 and CL5.9, loaded to bin full, in Boost mode.
Quantity and size of dust displayed on screen varies depending on usage. Examples shown may occur within one or more displayed size range. Some particles have a range including sizes smaller than 10µm, which may not be detected.
"As engineers our job is to solve daily problems, and the past 12 months has created plenty of new ones with more time spent indoors – we are all cleaning more frequently, trying to remove the additional house dust but desperate for peace of mind that our homes are truly clean," says James Dyson, Chief Engineer and Founder.
LASER DUST DETECTION: Laser Dust Detection reveals the particles you cannot normally see, with a precisely angled laser integrated into the cleaner head7.
The idea came about when a Dyson engineer noticed that airborne particles in their home glistened in the sun. They began to research how they could take this notion and apply it to the fine dust we cannot see in our home. The team experimented with laser lights in the lab to test how this could be achieved, and a new solution was born.
Dyson engineers integrated a green laser diode – chosen for its ability to provide the best contrast – into the Slim Fluffy cleaner head, positioning it precisely at a 1.5 degree angle, 7.2mm off the ground. It means hidden dust on the floor surface that is otherwise invisible to the naked eye can be seen and removed.
PIEZO SENSOR: Understanding that now more than ever people want more hygienic homes, Dyson engineers set about developing a technology which enables the user to measure the dust it detects and then displays it on an LCD screen for real time scientific proof of a deep clean8.
So, how does this work? An acoustic piezo sensor has been integrated into the vacuum. Carbon fibre filaments in the cleaner head pick up microscopic particles which are sized and counted up to 15,000 times a second. The dust enters the vacuum and hits the acoustic piezo sensor within the bin inlet with the tiny vibrations being converted to electrical signals. 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 and deliver scientific proof of a deep clean.
