Break Free from the Cord with the Dyson V8 Absolute
Let’s talk about how many living and breathing people are in my home. We have two kids, two frenchies, my husband and me. With all of us under one roof, our house can get quite dirty quickly.
I needed a tool that would help me clean up the messes that life brings and the Dyson V8 Absolute fit right into what I was looking for!
My home is an open concept bungalow with full carpeting in the basement, office and upstairs bedrooms. In the upper level and in the main foyer leading to the dining room, you’ll find a mixture of tile and hardwood floors.
Needless to say, they are all surfaces that are magnets for dirt, pet hair, allergens, kid messes and more.
I have been a Dyson user ever since I became a homeowner and that was many years ago. In fact, I still have my Dyson DC77 Animal that is still a beast that I use throughout the basement and in the bedrooms.
While the superior quality and effectiveness cannot be beat, it was a bit heavy for me.
I had the opportunity to review the Dyson V8 Absolute and it has completely changed our cleaning game. While we still absolutely love our DC77 Animal, the Dyson V8 Absolute is a game changer!
If you don’t have one, I’ll let you know down below why you need to consider it for your household this holiday season and beyond!
Designed to Clean Floors
One quick glance at this beauty and you can really see that not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it can get the job done. The V8 quickly transforms between handheld and stick modes to clean down low, up high and everywhere in between.
This vacuum was literally designed to clean your floors. Not only is it designed for the job, but Dyson has revamped it to make it even better.
Whether you need the Dyson V8 in a handheld format or in stick mode, cleaning EVERYWHERE has never been easier.
No matter where you need to clean, I’m confident you’ll be able to reach it with the V8–just like I did!
I think the most annoying part for me when it comes to vacuums is the cord. It keeps you tethered to one area and gets all tangled up. I am thankful I can break free from the cord and say hello to a cordless option!
Trust me, this alone will change cleaning for you, just like it did for me because the V8 has up to 40 minutes of fade-free suction and 25 minutes if you have the motorized floor tool attached.
If you don’t want to carry around a heavy vacuum, you’ll love the Dyson V8 Absolute because it only weighs 5.7 pounds.
How’s that for a lightweight, easy-to-carry vacuum?
Since it is lightweight, I am able to zip through the upper and lower levels of our house and clean every room in half the time!
Cleans All Your Floors
While cleaning, it’s super annoying to have to move from broom to vacuum or another contraption made specifically for hardwood or tiles. Not only is it a bit stressful, the tools themselves take up a lot of storage closet real estate.
Since trying the V8, I don’t have to do any of that anymore or give up storage space because it has the power to do it all with ONE tool that can be neatly stowed away.
While I like to keep things clean and tidy at all times, cleaning all different types of floors can be trying. But, with the Dyson V8, it can move from carpet to hardwood floors in no time.
With a swift change of an attachment, I can clean my tiles, hardwood floors and carpet because at any given moment, there could be a cereal spill, dog kibble and dog hair on the floors.
The Dyson V8 seemed to have no trouble handling any mess we threw at it. You’ll find that the soft roller head on this vacuum is more than capable of picking up big debris and fine dust from your floors.
While the carpet attachment, with those nylon bristles, reaches deep into your carpet and delivers clean. The dusting attachments are perfect for cleaning my desk and keyboard and getting the dust between the books on my bookshelves.
One of the best features is that this vacuum can handle cleaning couches, mattresses and even the interior of vehicles. It has an extension hose that will help you get into those hard to reach nooks and crannies.
Ahh, it really is satisfying to clean those areas!
What’s in the Box?
Like I’ve mentioned, the V8 has everything you need to clean EVERYWHERE. It also has a sleek docking station that you can attach to a wall in any room and have it charge and hold additional attachments until you need it next.
- Soft Roller Cleaner Head
- Direct-Drive Cleaner Head
- Mini Motorized Tool
- Combination Tool
- Rigid Crevice Tool
- Extension Hose
- Mattress tool
- Mini soft dusting brush
Hygienic Dirt Ejector
Who wants to get their hands dirty when changing and cleaning all the icky stuff that the vacuum just picked up? Not me! With the touch of a button and in one swift action, you can dump all the contents out without ever touching the dirt.
That sounds good to me! Plus, the V8 has a whole machine HEPA filtration system. It captures allergens and expels cleaner air than the air you breathe.
Another thing I appreciate about Dyson is that they are always looking to make improvements. The engineers of Dyson are never sitting still; they always want to make the product better in any way they can.

This is the latest generation of vacuums and the V8 is amazing. It is quieter, stronger and always effective. It’s safe to say that the Dyson V8 has changed the way I clean in our home.
I can put away my broom for good now that I can use one device to clean every surface in my home.
What do you look for in a vacuum?
