How to Clean a Cordless Vacuum


“I’ve lost count of all the people in my life who have given me a hard time for recommending a vacuum that “broke” within a year or two. It doesn’t clean like it used to, they say, or the vacuum just won’t run right, and what a shame that it’s such a waste of money. It turned out that they have never done any basic maintenance”, says Liam McCabe for the New York Times

To keep your cordless vacuum cleaner running well, just clean a few components when needed to keep your stick cordless vacuum cleaner efficiently cleaning your space.

As a bonus, they can even transform into handheld vacuum cleaners, for super convenient above-the-ground vacuuming (carpeted floors, for instance) and vehicle cleaning.

The stick vacuum is a great tool for cleaning up your home, office, RV and boat. It’s easy to use and can be used in any room of the house, including on stairs or hard-to-reach areas. However, it does require some maintenance to keep it working well. Here are some tips for keeping your stick vac clean:


You can do this by emptying out the dirt container and then shaking off as much of the debris as possible. If there is still too much dust, you can also clean the filter by simply tapping the filter into the trash bag. Comparing Miele and Dyson, here are the details:

Miele Triflex HX1 Cordless stick brings a Hygiene lifetime filter featuring a very high dust-retention capacity and collects 99.98% of all fine particles. It also has a pre-filter which helps to collect these fine particles improving cleaning performance.

Dyson V11 Complete has a advanced whole-machine filtration fully sealed, with six-layer filtration traps 99.99% of particles as small as 0.3 microns.

Brush Roll

Clean the brush roll. The brush roll collects hair and other small particles from the floor. To make sure that it works properly, you need to remove all of the hair, including pet hair, that has collected over time. Use a soft cloth to wipe down the brush roll and then replace it after each use.

Waste Bin

It’s now time to empty your bin wastebasket. Just pull out the wastebasket bin and let the debris drop into the garbage. YAY, this is my kind of easy!

Tip: To avoid dust particles from settling inside your space, empty the bin outside. You can then quickly dispose of any debris by putting it in a trash sack and closing it right away.

Now the bin is empty. It’s about time to clean it out! Turn off the machine and then press the button again. Clean it with a rag or a sponge. If not, take it apart and see if you can find any further dirt. Once you’re done cleaning, put everything back together again. Your waste bin container should be ready to go.

Why I Love Cordless Stick Vacuum

It’s easy to use, lightweight, cordless, and powerful enough for even the toughest jobs around the house. Plus, certain models such as the Miele Triflex HX1 Cordless stick vacuum has a Rechargeable and exchangeable VARTA Li-Ion battery pack allowing up to 60 minutes of run-time. Dyson V11 Complete doesn’t fall behind with up to 60 minutes of run-time.

Miele Triflex HX1 Cordless stick also has a unique 3-in-1 design offers exceptional flexibility to allow comfortable cleaning in all areas (floors, furniture and hard to reach spots like ceilings).

The Dyson V 11 Complete vacuum automatically detangles hair. It features motorized cleaning bristles which use polycarbonate hair removal wire to automatically remove tangles from the floor nozzle achieving a cleaner head every time you clean. The LCD digital display gives you complete control of your vacuum by displaying the remaining battery life, maintenance alerts, and warning messages.

All in all, a Cordless Stick vacuum is an excellent choice for those who want a simple yet effective solution for their cleaning needs.

Clean the filter regularly. The filter should be cleaned every time you run the vacuum. This will help prevent clogs and reduce the amount of dust that gets into the air.
