Hello there, this is Kelly with Dyson. The Dyson V8 Animal cord-free vacuum will provide you with 115 air watts of suction power. The direct-drive cleaner head has powerful bristles ideal for carpeting, but also work well on bare floors. You can not, however, turn the brush bar off, so if that's a concern with having hard wood, you may prefer the Absolute model. This vacuum will provide you with two cleaner heads - one of which is a soft roller. This floor tool was engineered specifically for hard floors.
