Soft Roller Cleaner Head Features and Design

Although (Fluffy) Soft Roller Cleaner Heads for Dyson cordless vacuums appear visually almost the same, there are four different models for different models of Dyson cordless vacuums.

However, Soft Roller Cleaner Heads share many similarities, including the design and operation.

As its name suggests, Soft Roller Cleaner Head doesn't use a brush bar, but the roller, engineered to capture fine dust and larger debris simultaneously, saving both time and effort.

Soft Roller Cleaner Head is powered by the direct-drive motor placed inside the cleaning roller, improving the edge-to-edge cleaning.

Also, to help with the edge-to-edge cleaning, Soft Roller Cleaner Head also features edge bristles that agitate dirt which is then sucked into the vacuum via a strong airflow.

The roller features soft woven nylon fibers intended to envelop debris, while anti-static carbon fiber filaments help remove very fine dust and other similar small particles from the bare floors.

Dyson Soft Roller Cleaner Head is not a maintenance-free cleaner head - it is up to the user to remove tangled hair, to clean clogs and blockages and similar.

Also, Soft Roller Cleaner Head is well built and sturdy vacuum cleaner head, but over time it may simply break down.

And when that happens, it is highly recommended to get a new one... Just be sure to order the Soft Roller Cleaner Head for the Dyson cordless vacuum that You already have.
