Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Review: Lasers & More

I was asked if I wanted to do a Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean stick vacuum review. It didn’t take me long to say yes!

It’s been said amongst friends of mine that you can separate people into two categories. Those who love a Dyson stick vacuum, and those who haven’t tried one yet.

If you’re in the first category and are already onboard the Dyson train, then there are a lot of great features in the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Stick Vacuum (now available at Harvey Norman) that are going to make your cleaning experience even better than before.

If you’re in the second category, and haven’t tried a Dyson vacuum, well I think you might just be convinced once you hear how easy it is to keep things pristine with the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean.

Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean: A Truly Powerful Dyson Vacuum

First, let’s get the obvious out of the way.

The Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Stick Vacuum is more powerful than previous Dyson models*1. It feels light, as well, making it more convenient to move around. It’s also super easy to switch between stick mode and hand-held configuration. But you expected all of that, right?

What you’ve most likely come here to read about are the key features. The ones that separate this Dyson vacuum from the pack. And at the top of that list is lasers!

Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Laser Slim Fluffy™ Cleaner Head

The Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean’s Laser Slim Fluffy cleaner head is a true game changer. It’s got a quirky name, but the difference it can make to your home is substantial. Quite frankly, if you’ve got a hard floor to vacuum, the cleaner head’s laser tech is going to rock your vacuuming world.

When I turned this Dyson vacuum on for the first time, the kid in me cheered. But it’s not just fun and games, there’s a real advantage to Dyson’s laser technology.

See, with carpet, it’s easy to distinguish where you’ve already vacuumed. However, with hard floors things are different. It’s tough to determine where you’ve already cleaned, or to work out if a surface is dusty or dirty. This Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean vacuum changes all of that.

The Laser Slim Fluffy™ Cleaner Head’s ability to emit a laser field in front of itself allows you to detect the particles you can’t normally see*2. Yep, it reveals that your floor is much more dusty than you thought!

By virtue of making invisible dust visible on your hard floor, you’re able to see where you haven’t cleaned yet – making sure you don’t miss anything*2.

The Laser Slim Fluffy™ Cleaner Head is Expertly Engineered

Aside from the awesome laser, the 25cm-wide Dyson V15 Laser Slim Fluffy™ cleaner head has been engineered with soft nylon and anti-static carbon fibre filaments to remove dust from hard floors and narrow gaps. It also has a low profile. When combined with the pivoting head, this makes it super easy to reach further under furniture, around corners and into all the nooks throughout your home.

With my home being mostly hard floors, the Dyson V15 Laser Slim Fluffy™ cleaner head has really made my cleaning routine easier and more thorough. And dare I say it – fun! I even turned off the lights and vacuumed only by the light of the laser, and it felt like something out of the movie Tron (or Tron Legacy for the younger folk).

Yep, this cleaner head quickly became my go-to mode for cleaning around the house – but by no means is it the only winning feature of the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean.

Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Piezo Sensor

The Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Stick Vacuum has a Piezo sensor onboard that continuously sizes and counts dust particles and then automatically increases the suction power*3 when needed. This helps save battery, boosting power output only when required.

One such instance was when I moved an old wardrobe and found a big pile of dust underneath. The Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean boosted its power to deal with the heavy load of filth it had to clean up. Very handy!

Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Provides up to 60 Minutes of Fade-Free Power*5

You can get a lot done in an hour! By putting the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean vacuum into Eco mode, you can get up to 60 minutes of power out of the battery – which was more than enough to clean my entire home.

I managed to vacuum the hard floors across two bedrooms, a hallway, lounge room, kitchen and bathroom. On the top of that, I had enough juice to also give my blinds a good clean using the Soft Dusting Brush. Even after that, I still had more power left over. As a result, I emptied out the dustbin using the ‘point and shoot’ mechanism, then headed out to the car to use the Crevice Tool and Combination Tool to clean up the debris on the mats and floors.

Only after all that was this Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean in need of a charge. I can credit this performance to the unique battery power management system in the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean vacuum, where power-optimising technology and a battery-saving trigger help maximise run time while you clean – only using power when you need it.

If you are required to clean for even longer than I did in total, however, you can do so with an optional extra click-in battery pack. This additional Dyson click-in battery is available to buy separately.

Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Hair Screw Tool with Anti Tangle Technology

If you have pets in your home – or even just humans with long hair – then you’ll love the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Hair Screw Tool.

An anti-tangle conical brush bar spirals hair off and into the dust-bin to prevent wrapping of hair around the brush bar. This means you can easily clean up in one go without having to stop and get your hand in there to de-clog the hair – or even crack out the scissors. Get those scissors away from your Dyson! Just use this handy tool instead.

High Torque Cleaner Head for the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean Vacuum

Not every surface that needs cleaning will be a hard floor, right? Well that’s where the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean High Torque Cleaner Head is your new best friend.

This is billed as Dyson’s most powerful cord-free cleaner head. The other big selling point is that it also automatically adjusts power to suit different floor types*3. The stiff nylon bristles drive deep into carpets and rugs to remove ground-in dirt, while the soft, anti-static carbon fibre filaments also make it effective at capturing dust from hard floors. This means, if your home has a combination of carpet and timber or tiles, you can get the job done with just one cleaner head.
