|Dirt Devil Tempest DCC070|
The array of tools and attachments that came with the Tempest was impressive, including a carpet floor brush that was adjustable for use on both carpet and hard floors (we have both in our house), an Intense Turbo Brush which had a rotating hard bristled brush inside that was fantastic on stairs and for dog hairs. The accessory tools included a Crevice Tool (I found this great for cleaning down the back of the sofa and on car seats), an upholstery brush and a dusting brush for delicate areas such as keyboards and along the tops of curtain rails.
One of the worst things about hoovering in our house is the dog hairs. We only have one dog but the amount of dog hairs that roll up the hall like tumbleweed anyone would think we had more than one and they have become my nemesis - I'm sure as soon as my back is turned the hairs multiply! The worst areas in the house for this is the mat at the front door where the dog likes to sit and the dog bed. The Intense Turbo Brush was perfect for cleaning these areas and although the following video doesn't show the hairs as clearly as I would have liked it certainly shows what the Tempest can do. You can hear how powerful the 2200 Watt Dirt Devil is.
I love the fact that the Tempest is bagless as I am too
Emptying the dust canister is easy by releasing the catch on the top by the handle, removing the canister and then pressing the release catch (whilst holding over the bin!). Dust will drop into the bin then its just a case of wiping the inside of the canister with kitchen roll or similar, closing the canister and replacing back into the cleaner.
