Dyson Introduces Its First Dedicated Wet Floor Cleaner Engineered for Powerful, Hygienic Floor Washing

Designed to deliver a powerful, hygienic clean on hard floors across expansive spaces, the Dyson WashG1 boasts a 1-litre clean water tank, covering up to 290m² in one charge. Utilizing advanced hydration, absorption, and extraction technologies, it swiftly removes wet and dry dirt, along with tough stains, all while automating the separation process for enhanced hygiene maintenance.

“Wet cleaning is considered a necessary chore globally and the perceived burden has been the target of a vast array of wet floor cleaning formats. Despite this, users’ expectations are often left compromised when it comes to stain removal, pick-up performance and floor finish. Dyson engineers solve the problems others ignore and we thrive on the challenge of creating better technology. The Dyson WashG1 is the result of this; our first dedicated wet machine to wash hard floors, properly and hygienically.” 
– Charlie Park, VP of Floorcare at Dyson.

Dyson’s unique separation technology divides debris and dirty water at source, for hygienic, no-touch disposal. Dirty water is extracted from the rollers by a durable mangle, whilst secondary nylon bristled inner brush bars remove dirt and debris from the microfibre rollers, flicking it straight into a removable debris tray.

The debris tray has been designed with a 500-micron mesh to separate dirty water from the large debris. Powered by an extraction pump, dirty water is immediately collected in a 0.8-litre capacity dirty water tank, without allowing large debris to pass through the machine. Keeping the dirt and debris in the head of the machine, and the dirty water in a separate tank allows for easy and hygienic disposal. To further support ease of maintenance for users, the Dyson WashG1 has been intricately designed without sharp internal surfaces or crevices, to help lessen dirt or grime build-up inside the machine. Both water tanks have been designed with large openings to allow for easy maintenance and cleaning.

After use, the self-cleaning mode purges both rollers with clean water on the highest boost setting, flushing the entire system in preparation for the next clean.

Highly absorbent, counter-rotating rollers

Two individually powered rollers, counter-rotate whilst a pulse-modulated pump distributes water evenly across 26 hydration points, along the full width of each roller.

Each roller is made up of a unique, highly absorbent microfibre, with 64,800 filaments per cm2. This combination of high-density microfibre and consistent application of clean water ensures liquid spills are absorbed, whilst dry dirt, debris and hair are enveloped by the millions of high-density filaments. By positioning two rollers at the front and back of the machine, Dyson engineers also achieved longer dwell time on stains with each pass, for powerful and fast stain removal.

The Dyson WashG1 has been designed with in-use hydration control, allowing owners to select the level of hydration required based on debris type, flooring and personal preference. The low, medium and high modes each run continuously once selected, to provide increased levels of hydration respectively. Each mode also features an additional three sensitivity settings, to allow owners to fine-tune them to their individual cleaning needs. A separate boost mode button purges each roller with the maximum amount of hydration when pressed, for the removal of stubborn dirt and dried-on stains.

To allow for edge-to-edge cleaning, the Dyson WashG1 has been designed with two motors that sit within each microfibre roller.

For optimised manoeuvrability, Dyson engineers fine-tuned each motor to spin at a consistent speed by the hydration mode selected, allowing the machine to glide effortlessly whilst cleaning is in process. Adopting technology from the Dyson Omni-glide, casters provide additional balance and weight support whilst the low cleaner head height allows for easy reach underneath furniture. 

 “Stain removal performance is dependent on the correlation of hydration of the floor and agitation applied. We’ve engineered our machine to allow owners full control, enabling them to deep clean their homes effectively.”
