How to Clean My Dyson Vacuum

If you own a Dyson vacuum cleaner, you already know Dyson bag-free vacuums are a smart choice for a number of reasons. They save on vacuum cleaner bags, and are an environmentally friendly choice for generating less trash for landfills. They're also friendly to the homeowner's environment, all but eliminating pet hair, dander, dust mites, and other indoor allergens.

If you are a new Dyson vacuum owner, you might not know how to clean and maintain the Dyson vacuum cleaner. Properly cleaning and maintaining the machine is important for keeping it functioning at maximum efficiency. This will help ensure the Dyson vacuum continues to work correctly use after use.

Safety Considerations
It's important to turn-off and un-plug your Dyson vacuum from the electrical outlet before attempting any cleaning or maintenance tasks. This includes emptying the cyclone bin, cleaning the filter, or clearing jams or blockages. Failure to do so carries a chance of injury due to electric shock.

Emptying and Cleaning the Clear Bin
Empty the clear bin as soon as the debris reaches the maximum dust line. To empty the bin, simply depress the latch on the carry handle to remove the bin, holding the bin over a garbage receptacle, press the release button to release dirt and debris directly into the garbage receptacle. You may need to tap or gently shake the unit to ensure it is entirely free of debris. Close the clear bin by pushing firmly on the middle of the base of the clear bin. You may wipe the bin clean with a damp cloth. Never submerge the bin in water, and be sure the bin is completely dry before re-attaching it to the vacuum.

Cleaning the Filter
Your Dyson vacuum filter should be washed every three to six months for optimum performance. Refer to your owner's manual for the specific location of the filter on your model. Wash the filter per manufacturer instructions by soaking in cold water for five minutes, then gently rinse and squeeze through with plain water until the water runs clear. Only plain, cool water should be used, and the filter must be completely dry before being reinstalled in the vacuum. The drying process usually takes from 12 to 24 hours. Under no circumstances should any soap or detergent of any kind be used, and the filter should not be washed or dried in a washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, or other appliance. It should also be kept away from open flame.

Maintaining Your Dyson Vacuum for Optimal Performance
All Dyson vacuum cleaners utilize Root Cyclone Technology and a lifetime HEPA filter that never requires changing. Dyson vacuums were designed with allergy sufferers in mind, and work to effectively eliminate or reduce many prevalent indoor allergens. Maintaining the vacuum in top condition is even more crucial for those who need to control allergens in the home environment. If the vacuum is operated with a full dust bin or a dirty filter, it will not be as efficient in eliminating micro allergens from the environment, which could trigger allergies, asthma, and related conditions in those affected by dust mites, pet dander, and other indoor allergens.
