Nearly everyone in America has some sort of vacuum cleaner. Some are chargeable, some are plug-ins, some are bag-less, some are upright style and some are cordless handheld models. If you own a top-of-the-line brand like Dyson, chances are that you are very happy with your choice.
Cordless vacuums are great for cleaning small such as a car, RV or boat. When your cordless vacuum was new, it took on every challenge it faced. It picked up everything from the dirt left behind after soccer practice to the sawdust covering your garage workshop.

Changing or cleaning the filter of your cordless vacuum is easy. Here are the steps to take:
Step 1: The very first thing you should do is to take your cordless vacuum outside. This is going to be a little messy and you don’t want dust contaminating the air you breathe.
Step 2: Next, you’re going to locate the filter and gently remove it. if you can’t find it, check your owner’s manual.
Step 3: After you have removed the filter, loosen up any caked-on dirt and debris by gently wiping the filter.
