How to Change Your Dyson Filter

Stark’s Vacuums in Portland OR – Vancouver WA – Bend OR

If your Dyson vacuum cleaner is experiencing reduced suction power, it may be because your air filters are dirty or damaged — not allowing air to easily pass through the machine. Over time, dirty air filters can also cause the motor in your Dyson to overheat and ultimately fail. So it’s important that you care for the filters inside of your Dyson to keep your machine working its best.

Change Dyson Filter

Every Dyson vacuum uses a different air filtration system to remove particles in your air. Your Dyson may have one or more filters, depending on if you have a stick, an upright, or a canister vacuum.
