The quicker and easier the maintenance, the better the cordless hoover. Nobody wants to spend a lot of time maintaining a vacuum cleaner.
Maintenance of the new cordless vacuum is straightforward and consists of four regular tasks:
- Emptying the dirt container
- Cleaning the dirt container
- Cleaning the floor nozzles
Emptying the Omni-Glide’s dirt container
You have to remove the suction tube to empty the dirt container. Then you can hold the device over the dustbin, press the red button at the bottom and push the dirt container forward.
The lid pops open, and the dirt falls into the dustbin.
If there are any stuck hairs, the dirt may not fall out directly. A little tapping usually does the job.
Attention! We recommend that people suffering from allergies empty the dirt container outside. That way, you can make sure that the nasty house dust won’t sneak back into your flat.
We exhausted the 0.2 l capacity with lentils during the test and noticed that a lentil got stuck in the lid’s seal. As a result, the lid couldn’t close properly.
We had to remove the lentil with a pointed object.
The dirt container of the Omni-glide has a size of only 0.2 liters, which is relatively small. So you have to empty it more often.
It seems like Dyson assumes that there’s less dirt on hard floors than on carpets, so they chose a smaller dirt container to improve manoeuvrability.
If you prefer a larger dirt container, the Dyson V11 might be the way to go.
The Dyson V11 Absolute’s dirt container has a size of 0.76 l, which is sufficient.
Cleaning the Dirt Container
You can easily remove the dirt container by using the handle (red lever).
That’s very practical. Then you can simply rinse it under running water.
Attention: The dirt container must dry entirely before you put it back in.
Cleaning the HEPA Filter
The vacuum cleaner can separate tiny particles from the air with the HEPA filter (particulate air filter). That includes even viruses and bacteria.
Maintenance is straightforward:
Simply twist off the HEPA filter at the top and slip it over the handle. Then, you can rinse the filter under cold water.
Caution: The filter must dry for 24 hours before reassembly.
Your advantage: It’s a so-called long-life filter, i.e. it lasts a very long time, so it’s pretty unlikely that you only have to change it. That’s good for the environment and your wallet.
Are There Replacement Filters for the Dyson?
Of course, you can buy a replacement filter from the Dyson online shop if yours ever breaks or something like that.
Cleaning the 360-Degree Floor Nozzle
You can easily remove the soft castors.
All you have to do is press the small lever on the side of the brush, and then you can remove them.
It works great!
Then you just have to tap out or wash the soft rollers.
You should inspect the floor brush regularly and clean it as needed. This ensures that the cleaning performance of the standard attachment remains high.
