You get both an upright design and a lift away mechanism for more efficient cleaning. The NV501 comes with a premium quality pet power brush. Many of us struggle with our pet’s hair. With the powerful pet power brush, it is possible to clean pet hair much more easily than with a normal head. The same goes for dander which is lodged deeper in the carpet.

Another powerful feature of the NV501 is the HEPA filter which comes together with the Anti-allergen complete seal technology. These prevent 99.9% of the anti-allergen in the air from messing up your family’s health.
