Cleaning Coverage and Capacity
The Dirt Devil UD20015 Bagless Upright 11 design can be used on bare floors and carpet. It has an auto-height adjustment feature that allows the vacuum to be used on multiple surface types. The vacuum has an 11-inch cleaning path that is quite small. The size and capacity of this vacuum are suitable for those who live in small apartments or need an extra vacuum for small areas in the house.
The dirt container should be emptied every time you use the vacuum. If the container gets filled even before you are done using the vacuum, you need to stop cleaning and empty the container. For even better care and maintenance, clean the filter whenever you empty the dirt cup. Simply tap the filter on the inside of a trash can to get rid of the dirt that is trapped inside. It is best to empty your container and clean the filter outdoors since the dust and dirt tend to scatter.
This Dirt Devil vacuum is covered by 1-year limited warranty on parts and motor.
This vacuum has hundreds of reviews. Almost half of the Dirt Devil UD20015 reviews gave this vacuum the highest rating. The ratings of this vacuum are not stellar by comparison, but it does have some strong points. We gathered and summarized some of the important user comments that we found online for you to consider:Repeated Raves:
- Affordable. You can get this vacuum for an affordable price. You shouldn’t expect to get a heavy-duty, dirt guzzling machine to come in the mail for this price. You will, however, receive a simple, functional and easy-to-use vacuums. You get what you pay for, and this is not one of those cheap vacuums that cost less but are worth zilch.
- A lot of power in its small frame. A lot of people say that the UD20015 “feels cheap” compared to other vacuums they’ve had. Despite the flimsy feel of the material, there are many users who were surprised by the power of this vacuum. This Dirt Devil can suck up dirt very well, especially for the price you pay for it.
Important Critical Reviews:
- Noisy. The noise that the UD20015 emits is not exactly music to the ears. Many users noted that the noise that comes out of this vacuum isn’t too pleasant and is definitely a drawback.
- Questionable durability. Skimming through the critical reviews, we found a significant number of people who complained that the Dirt Devil broke down after using it for a short while only. One review even mentioned using if for only 10 hours when black smoke started to come out of the vacuum. (Read more customer reviews here)
- Affordable. Buying a vacuum on a tight budget is hard. This vacuum will not burn a hole in your pocket. It’s priced very friendly. If budget is an issue, the low price is obviously a Pro.
- Lightweight. The vacuum is very light, weighing a measly 9 pounds. Sometimes the nice, efficient vacuums are simply too heavy. There are some people who are prohibited from doing heavy lifting, so vacuums like this one are a good option.
- Small cleaning path. The 11-inch cleaning path is not the best option for those who have big areas to clean. A vacuum like this Dirt Devil is okay for a studio or one-bedroom apartment but probably not the best choice for a 5-bedroom family home.
- Reported poor quality. There are quite some reviews that shed some information as to the durability of this vacuum. Yes, there are people who are happy with the vacuum they purchased but there are also quite a number who swear that this vacuum is cheap and unreliable. We leave the judgment up to you.
Should You Buy?As we mentioned, the Dirt Devil UD20015 Upright Vacuum Cleaner has some good points but also has some significant bad ones. This vacuum is very affordable and it has good suction power so it can be a convenient tool to purchase for your home. Before you decide on purchasing this vacuum, we encourage you to skim through the reviews online and also compare it to the other vacuums we reviewed here on Vacuum Groom.
