How to clean a Dyson vacuum ?

People still think that cleaning a Dyson vacuum is very complicated and takes a lot of time. However, it is not as difficult as people think. Pay attention and follow the steps below:

Step 1: 

Firstly, you have to empty the canister of any debris. It is normally underneath the cyclones. You need to press the button on the back between the two red pieces. After that, you remove the outer canister shell. For not sure where it is, let check your manual.

Step 2: 

Secondly, you open the bottom flap and remove the foam filter, then put aside for later. The filter of your Dyson vacuum has an important role to keep your home clean. It can trap dust, pollen, bacteria, and dirt particles from the air. Of course, like other parts, it’s necessary to clean out the filters. A lot of Dyson filters are located near the cyclone. Some Dyson upright vacuums will have not only one filter. This might include another one in the “ball” or back of the machine.

Step 3:

Thirdly, remove the roller cover. You can use a flathead screwdriver to remove the bottom roller cover after flip the vacuum upside down. Flippin Cleaners allows using scissors to remove any hair. It is sometimes trapped on the roller that makes cleaning slow. When it is clean, you have to use the compressed air to blow out any dust or dirt trapped in visible spaces. After that, put roller cover back on.

Additionally, you need to clean the brush bar collecting all the hair, debris and dirt from floors and carpet. After a while, cleaning efficiency is reduced for this builds up and gets tangled around it. Therefore, grab a pair of scissors and a flat head screwdriver to do this.

Step 4:

Next, you have to put cyclone part of the vacuum over a deep trashcan. Besides, use the compressed air on every single tiny hole. This part is super messy so you should be careful. Nevertheless, you have to note that you turn the cyclone part over and blow the air on the inside as well.

Step 5: 

After doing 4 steps above, you clean the canister section using the compressed air. (You can gather the cyclone, canister, and sponge filter and move inside to water source.)

Step 6: 

After cleaning the canister, you clean sponge. The thing you have to do is run the sponge filter under water. You will squeeze it until the water coming out is clear.

Step 7:  

You stop squeeze the sponge filter when it has no water on. Let run water through the canister to rinse it. Rinse canister carefully and clearly.

Step 8: 

After rinse canister, you have to wash it thoroughly with dish soap. Make sure that the canister is clear and there is no dirt attached to it.

Step 9: 

The next step is wipe cyclone. You need to use a damp paper towel to wipe off the cyclone section. In addition, wipe thoroughly to make sure that all the tiny holes are clean, and not plugged.

You have to note that your hose can become clogged and this can affect suction power. While you’re cleaning your Dyson, disconnect the hose by a button to detach it from the wand. Visually check inside the hose to see the debris if it has. Besides, you can also use a mop handle and push it through to clear the hose. Fill up your kitchen sink with warm water and one cup of vinegar. Take your hose into this mixture. 

Step 10:

Last but not least, you have to make everything dry. All sections that came into contact with water are laid out to completely dry at least 24 hours. Dirt will clump in the holes if you leave any form of moisture in the canister or cyclone part. Besides, leaving excess moisture and dampness in there might cause mold to grow. Moreover, it makes routine canister emptying much more difficult. Additionally, it has a note that Dyson does not recommend running the cyclone section directly under running water.

You have to unplug your Dyson vacuum from the power outlet before stat taking apart and cleaning this machine. This is going to make your job a lot safer and lowers your risk of suffering an electric shock. Preserve the vacuum well but also need to be safe, right?
