“We engineered the Dyson V15s Detect Submarine to not only solve the challenges with existing wet-and-dry formats, but also provide users with a multifunctional and versatile solution to remove dust, spills, and stains — all in one Dyson.”

Buying your first home is an exciting time. However, homeownership comes with a lot of new responsibility, including keeping the entire property clean and sanitary. On average, homeowners spend an average of 42 hours each month on cleaning and home maintenance. That’s 21 full days each year spent scrubbing, dusting, and vacuuming.

For many new homebuyers, this increase in cleaning tasks can feel overwhelming and time-consuming, especially for those who are already balancing work, family, and other responsibilities. In fact, 81% of first-time homeowners report feeling overwhelmed, confused, or stressed about home maintenance.

The right tools can make cleaning your home easier and far more efficient. A quality home vacuum is essential for keeping your castle tidy, and the Dyson V15s Detect Submarine is an all-in-one cleaning appliance designed with versatility in mind, making it an ideal vacuum for first-time homeowners.

Engineered for efficiency

Dyson’s new V15s Detect Submarine vacuum is the brand’s first all-in-one cordless vacuum cleaner. Using a combination of hydration, absorption, and extraction technologies, the Dyson V15s Detect Submarine can be used for wet and dry vacuuming — the perfect solution for all household messes on any surface.

“Instead of purchasing multiple cleaning solutions for your home, we engineered the Dyson V15s Detect Submarine to not only solve the challenges with existing wet-and-dry formats, but also provide users with a multifunctional and versatile solution to remove dust, spills, and stains — all in one Dyson,” said Asaph Ooi, senior design manager of the floorcare division at Dyson.

The Dyson V15s Detect Submarine can replace vacuums, mops, and other cleaning tools to save first-time homeowners both time and storage space.

Cut through pet messes

According to a recent study, 70% of American households have a pet — almost double the number that have children (40%). Cutting through pet messes is a common struggle for many new homeowners, with 75% saying that they have had to clean their home constantly since getting a furry friend.

By choosing a vacuum made with pets in mind, new homeowners can save significant time and frustration trying to vacuum up pet hair in vain with an inadequate vacuum or lint tool. In particular, Ooi recommends using the Hair Screw tool for removing pet hair from furniture or dog beds.

“The Hair Screw tool is great for deep cleaning soft furnishings like your mattress or sofa, he said. “Inspired by an Archimedes screw, it’s engineered to quickly pick up long hair and pet hair.”

Maintain squeaky clean bathrooms

Keeping bathrooms clean is another constant challenge new homeowners face. The combination of moisture, hair, and grime can quickly build up and lead to dirt, mold, and bacteria growth and accumulation. This not only affects the cleanliness of your home but could also harm your health.

The Dyson V15s Detect Submarine Absolute utilizes a powerful HEPA filtration system that captures 99.9% of particles. This means first-time homeowners can confidently tackle bathroom cleaning knowing their vacuum is removing invisible contaminants as well as visible dirt.

The Submarine wet roller is also great for cleaning damp areas of your bathroom, so you don’t have to wait for the room to dry completely after running the shower before tackling the floors. The Digital Motor bar cleaner head has hair detangling technology, which makes it perfectly suited to keep bathrooms tidy.

“Dyson’s brush bar technology is designed to tackle all hair,” Ooi explained. “Inspired by a de-tangling comb, the brush bar features hair removal vanes, precisely angled to help migrate all hair types directly into the cleaner head.”

The ultimate all-in-one cleaning tool

The Dyson V15s Detect Submarine is engineered to efficiently and effectively clean up food crumbs, spills, tough stains, dust, hair, and more. Agile and functional, it can be used in every room of the house, allowing first-time homeowners to save time on maintenance and save money by eliminating the need for multiple cleaning tools.

Dyson makes it simple for first-time homeowners to find the vacuum that meets all their needs. “We understand our customers have varying home and cleaning needs,” Ooi said. “The Help Me Choose feature on is a great place for customers to start if they are deciding which vacuum is right for them.”
