House dust is the number one cause of allergic reactions in the home.*

*According to the World Health Organisation.

Human skin, dust mite faeces, pollen, fungus, fibres, bacteria, food particles, plant matter, insects and chemicals. Every one of these is found in house dust. Some measure only 0.5 microns in size – up to 200 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair.

PM 10.0 Pollen and allergens

PM 5.0 Bacteria and mould

PM 2.5 Industrial and auto emissions

PM 1.0 Odours and domestic fumes

PM 0.1 Potentially harmful ultra fine particles


When we inhale these microscopic particles, they can cause allergic reactions.

Eyes – Itchy, watery, sore

Nose – Itching, running, sneezing

Throat – Coughing, soreness

Skin – Itching, irritation rashes

Lungs – Wheezing, shortness of breath


15 years of allergy research later…

Thought to be the first vacuum manufacturer with a dedicated microbiology lab – we even have our own dust mite farm - our 15 years’ allergy research has led us to only one conclusion: the most effective way to deal with bacteria, pollen and dust mite allergens in your home is to remove them.

Which is where Dyson technology comes in.


“As pollution increases, technology must counter it. We began by engineering vacuums that capture the pollutants found on floors and surfaces.

Now we've turned our attention to those in the air.”

James Dyson, Inventor.
