Pros: easy to attach, works
Unfortunately our animals think our bed is their bed. Once my husband and I get up in the morning they all tend to jump in our bed. This was the main reason I purchased the Dyson Mattress Tool because I was tired of washing my sheets more then I needed too just to get the pet hair out of them.
I own the Dyson DC17 Bagless Upright Vacuum and love it. My model did not come with a lot of the attachments I wanted so I had to purchase them. The Mattress Tool was one of these attachments. The Mattress Tool removes dust, dirt, and animal hair from your mattresses and furniture. It has a wide head, measuring eight inches wide. This unit is solid grey plastic and has the Dyson name on it. This is made for quick and easy cleaning. The Mattress Tool can be used with all Dyson models.
The Mattress Tool is easy to use. You just attach it to the end of your hose. The Mattress Tool makes it easy to get pet hair off your sheets and blankets without taking them off the bed and washing them. I have also used the unit on my clothes. I keep the clothing on a hanger and lay them on the bed and vacuum the hair off them. I love that the tool allows you to vacuum up the dirt but doesn’t suck up your linens or clothes. I have also used the tool on my furniture where the animals also like to lay when we are not around.
I like that the Mattress Tool has great suction. With other vacuums I owned it seemed like when you used an attachment it didn’t have the best suction. This is not a problem with this unit.
I love my Dyson vacuum and most of the accessories I have purchased for it. My main issue with Dyson items is the price. I just don’t understand why they are so expensive. Yes they work great but do they really need to cost so much? Yes I am willing to pay for something that works better but I just think their pricing is a bit outlandish. I do like the Mattress Tool and am glad I bought it but I waited until it went on sale to purchase it. Regular price for the Mattress Tool is about thirty dollars. I purchased it on sale for twenty which I still think is a lot. I have seen the Mattress Tool sold in stores and online.
I don’t think the Mattress Tool is a must have but if you have animals I think it really helps out when cleaning. If you know someone that owns a Dyson, they might like this tool as a gift. Being that the Dyson Vacuum is so expensive, someone that owns one might not want to purchase extra tools for it because of the cost.
I like my Dyson Mattress Tool and would recommend it to others. I just wish it wasn’t so expensive.
