I suppose it's more about your own opinion really :)) How well does it work on your carpets?  I never tried it (I know, I'm ashamed despite being a hardcore Dyson fan!) (Not air multiplier)

I seen a video where it was being compared to Vanish carpet powder. A kid drew on his hand with a Biro pen and tried rubbing the vanish powder on it with hardly any change. The Dyson zorb made the ink all go away, so I imagine it would absorb the dirt in the carpet and then dry up with the powder so the remainder can be vacuumed up- That's dry cleaning and I think it's quite clever, actually!
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

:o I can't live without carpets, I HATE hard floors, but my mum loves them soo I have to learn to like them

I love carpets, better for allergy sufferers, heat insulating and feels nice and comfortable.

Carpets would be worse for allergy sufferers
They retain dust and muck.
Ever pulled up a carpet?

Yes

But carpets trap the dust, if it were hard floors and someone shuts the door, there's a breeze which means dust flies everywhere, also when sweeping or vacuuming it flies everywhere too. Carpets capture these particles unless they are vacuumed ;)

Just use a good vacuum (Dyson, Sebo, Kirby or something) and there'll hardly be much underneath the carpet, we took our approx 8 year old carpets off our landing about 2 years ago as we had DIY work being done and there was hardly much underneath the carpet- we've been using Dysons (DC07/14/25/41s etc) over the years :icon_nod:

I always thought washing carpets was the best treatment for carpets, I still think it could be if you have a powerful vacuum, but recently after watching Kirby salesman demos I learnt something new. It was "washing carpets means you're mixing the deep down dirt with water. this produces mud and the water soaks through the carpet along with the dirt underneath it. so when it dries you have mud. The shampoo system is basically foam that is wet till dry and gets vacuumed up" or something, so it works like Zorb

I found that quite intriguing

3 places I refuse to have carpet.

1, Hallway, just gets to dirty.

2, Kitchen, same as above and below.

3, Bathroom/Toilet, they get wet, stink and its just unhygienic.

I love hallway carpets, but then again I love washing them even more.

I agree with kitchen, I've never seen a carpet in a kitchen before anyway.

And bathroom, I've been in houses with nice thick carpet designed for bathrooms and I really liked it, and it didn't seem to smell however I can see the unhygienic aspect. Personally, I'd have a carpet in the bathroom and simply wee in the toilet instead of the floor.
