Dyson Animal Absolute vacuum cleaners are upright vacuum cleaners used in the home and intended for pet owners that have a difficult time removing pet hair from carpets and other fabrics. Dyson Animal Absolute vacuum cleaners are equipped with a HEPA air filter that removes harmful particles and pollutants from the room. Over time, the HEPA air filter becomes dirty and less effective in removing the particles and pollutants; it must be cleaned to restore the efficacy of the filter.
