The Dyson Asthma and Allergy Kit includes Soft Dusting Brush, Mattress Tool, Flexi Crevice Tool and adapter.
Dyson Asthma and Allergy Kit contains three Dyson’s vacuum attachments designed to clean dust, dirt, allergens, hair, fibers and other debris from hard-to-reach places around the home.
The Dyson Asthma and Allergy Kit includes:
– Soft Dusting Brush,
– Mattress Tool,
– Flexi Crevice Tool,
Soft Dusting Brush helps gently remove fine dust and allergens from flat surfaces and delicate areas like upholstery, TV and computer screens and displays, pictures and similar.
Its fine nylon bristles are angled at 45° to sweep dust particles from the surface into the airflow, helping the dirt being vacuumed into the vacuum cleaner. Note that it is of vital importance to have vacuum cleaner with good air filtration, preferably true HEPA vacuum cleaner.
The front bristles are spaced wider to prevent sticking to furniture when being pushed during the vacuuming.
A felt strip along the center of the brush protects polished and sensitive surfaces from scratching. Nonetheless, when cleaning delicate surfaces, be careful regarding applied pressure.
The tapered shape of the brush channels vacuum’s airflow to distribute vacuuming pressure evenly across the length of the cleaning attachment.
Mattress Tool helps cleaning dust, dirt and allergens from mattresses, upholstery and similar flat and not-so-flat surfaces.|
It is made from tough polypropylene for strength and durability and it allows user to press and push it, without fearing of mechanical failure. Nonetheless, don’t push it to hard, or something in the end will fail!
The top of the mattress tool is angled to distribute suction power evenly across the tool’s width.
Tool neck is angled at 45° and in combination with rounded front, make it easier to push the tool across fabric, carpet pile and mattresses.
Lint pickers on the front and back edges of the tool gather, ball and release fibers into the airflow, where they are sucked away into the vacuum.
Note: Dyson Mattress Tool doesn’t have rotating brush bar to help remove pet and human hair or UV light to sterilize the mattresses and other surfaces that tolerate strong UV light.
Dyson Flexi Crevice Tool is extendable and flexible crevice tool, helping remove dust and dirt from tight and hard-to-reach spaces such as the gaps between cabinets, car and similar seats, behind and under furniture etc.
Flexi Crevice Tool has three main sections: main crevice shaft, extendable rubber section and stiff nylon bristles.
The tough polypropylene main crevice shaft can be used as a regular crevice tool or as extended crevice tool.
Extendable rubber section is both tough enough to channel high-velocity airflow without deforming, and flexible enough to bend around corners.
Stiff nylon bristles at the end of the tool agitate and dislodge stubborn and ground-in dirt, while airflow remove them into the vacuum.
Note: Dyson Asthma and Allergy Kit comes with small, plastic adapter, making it possible to use this cleaning kit on all Dyson upright, canister and cordless vacuum cleaners – according to the official Dyson site.
All cleaning tools in this kit can be found and bought individually, but as a kit, they cost less and as a kit can cover more surfaces and clean more thoroughly.
