Do you have any problems with allergens in your bedroom? You tried all sorts of ways to get rid of them but each time they keep coming back? I think that the Dyson V6 Mattress vacuum cleaner has come to stake care of your house. Like handheld hoovers, it uses two-tier radial cyclones that catch dust mites and allergens from your mattress and safely put them away in the see-through canister. Unlike general home cleaning products of the V6 series – the Total Clean and the Flexi, for example, the V6 Mattress is specifically designed for mattress cleaning and removal of allergens and mites.
V6 Mattress Design and Features
When you take a look at the V6 Mattress handheld you can see that it is not an ordinary vacuum cleaner – it looks like a very complex cleaning machine. Nevertheless, its appearance is not aggressive or unsightly, quite the opposite. The V6 Mattress is quite slick with its all white plastic and a few green accents.
The machine is primarily white plastic but the designers have made it more attractive by adding some turquoise touches. It consists of fifteen cyclones which give the cleaner incredible suction power. In normal mode, it is 28 air watts while the maximum you can reach is 100 air watts in max mode. The produced airflow is enough vacuum out all dead skin cells, dust mites, mold and pet hair from your mattress.
The removable HEPA filter will catch even the tiniest particles. The vacuum is bagless which means that you don’t have to replace and expensive bags.
The V6 Mattress battery lasts for up to 20 minutes in normal mode. With a motorized tool, the battery life drops to 17 minutes. In Max mode, the hoover burns through the battery capacity in just 6 short minutes.
The bin capacity is 0.4L. It might seem like it is a bit small to you but in reality, it is a vacuum designed to clean mattresses and beds specifically so it usually doesn’t have to deal with any large debris or too much dirt. I doubt that you’ll have to clean it too often. It surely won’t fill up too fast. Besides, emptying the bin is not a big deal at all. The only thing that you need to do is push down the red slider button, which is located right behind the trigger. The bottom door of the bin opens out and the dust falls into the garbage bin. Easy.
V6 Mattress Sound
The sound that the V6 produces might be considered as a bit of a negative. In standard mode, the machine reaches 73dB and in Max mode, it gets to 80dB. It is not a specially pleasant sound either.
This handheld hoover comes with several attachments for effective cleaning. They are as follows – a combination tool, rigid crevice tool, and a motorized mattress tool. These tools can help you clean shelves, crevices, corners, furniture, table tops and more. With so many accessories, you can be even capable of cleaning your computer keyboard. We all know that it is probably one of the dirtiest places in your house. The V6 Mattress can pick up pet hair and all that, but it is not really a dedicated Animal hoover. Hair might get tangled in the motorized too and I would recommend looking at a proper Animal model if you have any shedding pets around. A good choice is the V6 Top Dog, for example.
V6 Mattress Review VerdictThe Dyson V6 Mattress is a light, easy to lift, easy to turn and manoeuvre vacuum cleaner. The filter and the HEPA filtration are nice additions to it because the air that leaves the hoover is much cleaner than the air in the room. With cleaner air, you breathe much easier. The unit is not designed just for mattress use. It performs exceptionally on both carpet and bare floors. This Dyson vacuum is the best product for people with asthma, allergies, skin rashes, and irritations.
The downsides, if you can call them that, are that the V6 Mattress doesn’t come with a dedicated accessory bag nor docking station. The battery life is fine for normal use but if you push it in Max mode you will get only 6 minutes. It also takes three and a half hours to recharge which is quite a lot. It is more of a speciality vacuum than anything else – it is not equipped with all the tools and accessories required for a total home cleaning.
