You should start by going to your washroom or utility room unless you want all the dust and dirt to fly around the house as you disassemble your vacuums cleaners brands. Follow the manual and carefully take out the parts. In most cases, you can easily gain access to the dust container/bag, filter, various moving parts, and motor.

Step 2 – Clean the filters

Make sure you spend time cleaning your filters first since they’ll directly affect the suction power of your vacuum cleaners. Take out the filter, place it over your toilet or a trash can, and gently beat out all the dust. Don’t do it too hard or you’ll send the dust flying all around.

For upright vacuum cleaners, your beater bar is usually cloaked with hair and debris after a certain amount of time. It’s important that you can get rid of those as soon as possible. Use a small scissor and run it along the bristles. Cut off all the piece of hair and stringy matter until your beater bar is free to move easily.

As for the vacuum heads, just put those in your sink then soak them with soap and water. Use a brush to brush out all the dust, debris, and hair before you rinse them with clean water. Leave the parts out in the open air until they’re fully dried.

After you’re done with the cleaning and all the parts are dried, it’s time to reassemble your vacuum cleaner and enjoy its high performance once again.
