Getting The Most Out Of Your Dyson Vacuum Cleaner Of Any Model

As an independent vacuum store owner, and Dyson vacuum dealer, we have a very good chance to educate people on their vacuum purchase.  This is especially important with Dyson vacuum cleaners because they are not always "self-explanatory" to use.

If you want to get the most out of your Dyson, keep reading, I have 5 tips for you that will help you maximize your Dyson vacuum investment.

But before I start... Let me just mention, I can help you with your Dyson vacuum problems, simply send your questions to me in a comment below or with the form at the right.  I am more than willing to help you out.

Tip #1  Read The Manual

Dyson has very good owner manuals, if you have any questions on usage, the manual is a good place to start.  Unfortunately, most people don't keep their manual.  If you need a copy of your Dyson owner's manual, visit this Dyson link 

Tip #2  Empty Your Dust Bin In A Tall Kitchen Waste Basket  

I know this sounds very specific, but believe me it will help contain the dust.  With a tall kitchen waste basket, (and garbage bag) you can put the entire bin into the basket to contain the dust when you dump the bin.   

I have heard many Dyson owners complain the dust goes everywhere when they dump the bin, doing this one simple tip prevents that problem.

Tip #3  Use Your Tools

One of the most overlooked things on a vacuum is the extension hose and tools.  You can do so much with these tools on your Dyson, to reduce your overall house cleaning time.  
  • The crevice tool- Great for edges, couch creases, vehicle interiors, high dusting of corners.
  • The dusting brush- Small flat surface cleaning, dusting and upholstery cushions, vehicle surfaces, furniture and hard to reach areas under furniture.
  •  Mattress tool- Obviously great for mattresses and cushions, but also larger flat surfaces and floor areas. 
  • Specialized tools- Dyson has many specialized tools depending on your model, you can see a list of tools that can fit your model at this Amazon link. 
Tip #4 Filters

I have quite a few posts on this blog about filters, let me just make sure you know that you have to keep your Dyson filters clean or bad things happen, such as the motor overheating and loss of power.  It is quite easy to clean the filters, and most are washable.

Tip #5 Keep The Brush Roll Clean

Many Dyson vacuums have a clear power head, however older models do not.  Either way, tip your vacuum over and check the brush roll condition.  If there is a lot of hair wrapped around the brush roll, just take a scissors and cut it out.  Usually, the base plates (the bottom plate that covers the brush roll housing) are easy to remove with a flat head screwdriver or a couple of tabs that allow you to remove the bottom plate.

If your bush roll gets clogged and wrapped up with hair, strings or carpet fiber, it can cause excessive friction and either destroy your brush roll and or the brush roll motor.  Some simple maintenance can cure that problem.

These tips are designed to help you out with your Dyson vacuum of any model, as I mentioned earlier, if you need help with your Dyson we can assist you with advice, parts and training.  We are your Dyson vacuum experts!!

The Dyson Muti-Floor & Animal 2 Upright Vacuum..New For 2017

Same Girl, Different Dress, The Dyson Ball Multi-Floor 2
Why would you want to buy this vacuum, the Dyson 2 as it is called?  If you currently own a Dyson DC41, Dyson DC65, a Dyson Multi-Floor, or a Dyson UP13...simply put, you don't.  You already have one.  This is the same girl, different dress, and with that being said, I mean it has some pen stripes added for color and that's it!

I don't know if Dyson reads my blog or not but perhaps they do because I overwhelmingly support their decision to not mess with something that is already working.  If you don't have one of the models I mentioned in the first paragraph, it is time to get the Dyson 2.  It is the same framework as the prior models, and is one of the best Dyson ball models they have produced in my opinion.

If you take a look at my blog post regarding the Dyson Multi-Floor vs. The Dyson Big Ball, you will see why I am a fan of this model, its more powerful and more agile than the failed Dyson "Big Ball". 

Along with the Dyson 2, we have other models that are currently being discounted heavily at various retail outlets.  Those are the "Big Ball" models.  I feel that the Dyson Big Ball was a mistake, it was heavy, clunky and not as powerful.

What are the differences between the Dyson 2, and prior Dyson models of similar variety? 

Just one change, like I mentioned, color coordinated stripes and a colored bumper guard. The color will vary from yellow, which you see in the picture above, to purple, which designates the "Animal" model.

Of course, the Animal model is just the same as the Multi-Floor, with the exception of the turbo-brush for pet hair.  At the time of this writing, the price for the Dyson Multi-Floor 2 is $383 on Amazon, or for the Dyson Animal 2, $459

If you want to be crafty, or save money, you can get the previous model, the Dyson Multi-Floor, for about $279-$329 on Amazon as well.

Either way, feel confident you will be getting a high quality vacuum, with both power, performance and an overall sturdy vacuum cleaner.
