Instead of a heavy and cumbersome vacuum that’s almost impossible to pull around the home, upright vacuums are making a comeback with their new lightweight and maneuverable bodies that can take on any mess without fuss.

Today we’re looking at the Bissell Cleanview 2252 and the Dyson Upright Vacuum, to see what they have to offer. So let’s get right to it.

Bissell Cleanview 2252

At 15lbs, the Cleanview 2252 is a relatively lightweight upright vacuum that can be easily transported around the home for either a quick clean, or a more thorough dust busting session. This weight, alongside its dimensions of 13 x 14 x 44 inches, makes for a sturdy, yet easily tidied away vacuum that can be stored easily in your cupbards.

The Cleanview 2252 is perfect for pet owners. With specialized tools including the pet tool, corner tool and triple action brush roll, you’ll find clearing your home of pet hair, as well as the dirt they often traipse in from outside a breeze.

That’s not all though, because the Cleanview 2252 is a powerful upright vac that means business. Scatter free technology stops debris from escaping, even on hard floors with less grip, and swivel steering means you can easily maneuver around obstacles and furniture to catch every last speck of dust.

With a main path width of 13.5 inches, you won’t miss a crumb, and edge-to-edge cleaning means that edges and corners are left free from dirt and dust that’s usually the hardest to reach. All this combined with an incredible multi-cyclonic suction gives you the ultimate power right in your hands.

A clear dirt tank means that you can easily keep on track of exactly when you need to empty it, and with its easy empty system, you can make emptying completely mess free. Simply hold it above your bin and click the button for instant emptying.

Dyson Upright Vacuum

With 17.35lbs of weight, and 15.3 x 13.4 x 42.1 inches to play with, the Dyson Upright is almost identical to the Cleanview 2252, just slightly weightier and larger. It’s still an easily manoeuvrable and easy to store away upright vacuum cleaner though, that gets the job done.

Perfect for homes with pets, you’ll find that the Dyson Upright has a range of incredible tools to help eliminate hair and debris from your home. With a tangle free turbine tool, a stair tool, and a combination tool, no task is too taxing, and the Dyson Upright can tackle them all, without becoming tangled or matted.

In fact, its self-adjusting cleaner head helps keep suction perfect, even when you change from hard floors to carpet or vice versa. You’ll never lose any of that famous Dyson power that comes from its radial root cyclone technology, and you’ll even be able to remove microscopic dust without problem.

Navigation is simple with the Dyson Upright, thanks to its ball technology that allows precise maneuvering all around your home. You won’t miss a spot, even those tough to navigate corners and underneath low lying furniture.

With a 55 gallon capacity for dirt and grime, and a True HEPA filter to rid your home of unpleasant odors and bacteria, you’re all set for the cleaning power of the Dyson Upright. See exactly when your dirt tank needs emptying, and hygienically rid yourself of all captured dirt at the push of a button – there’s no extra mess to take care of with this genius vacuum cleaner.

Dyson Upright Vacuum Review


As you can see, both of these upright vacuums were designed to perfectly handle every day messes as well as stubborn messes left behind by pets or children.

With untouchable power, and a nimbleness that can’t be beaten, both the Bissell and Dyson are the perfect companions to anyone’s cleaning routine, and will take your carpets and hard floors back to their original glory in one easy pass.

Of course, the main difference lies in the price of each vacuum. Dyson is well known for leading the way with their innovative designs and incredible power, and that’s something that you’ll pay for, with such a high end brand. On the other hand, the Bissell won’t squeeze your savings dry, but it will bring you an almost identical clean to that of the Dyson.
