How to clean a Hoover vacuum?

We rely on our vacuum cleaners to help us clean our homes quickly and effectively. Our vacuum cleaners rely on us to clean them regularly so they can operate at their best.

So if you want your Hoover to keep performing and to last a long time. You should learn when and how to clean a Hoover vacuum cleaner.

Don’t worry, it’s a simple task if you perform one at a time and focus on cleaning the four major parts of the vacuum cleaner. Parts such as the dirtbag or dust cup, the filters, the brush roller, and the hose.

Dumping the collected Dirt

It is always best to start with dumping the dirt that your vacuum has collected during your cleaning sessions.

Hoover has a wide range of vacuum cleaners; some come with a dirtbag, such as the WindTunnel T-Series Max, and others have dirt containers. Both types require regular dirt dumping when full, or you can expect to have a decrease in suction and blockages.

Cleaning a Hoover vacuum that has a dirtbag

If you want to know how to clean a Hoover WindTunnel vacuum with a bag. The answer is simple as a Hoover vacuum such as the WindTunnel T-Series Max bagged upright has an indicator to tell you when the bag is full.

When that happens, open the vacuum bag cover on your machine and carefully remove the bag to either empty or replace.

A bagless Hoover vacuum

Bagless only means that instead of cleaning or replacing bags, you will need to clean dust cups. It only takes a minute or two of your time to detach the cup from the machine and dump its content in the garbage bin.

It is a good idea to give the dust cup a thorough cleaning monthly. Wash it in some soapy warm water, inside and out, and then leave it to dry overnight before returning it to your vacuum cleaner.

Wash or replace the filters

Dirt free hoover vacuum filters are vital to your vacuum’s performance and your home environment that could affect your health.

Vacuuming your home with dirty filters not only pushes the dust back into the air that triggers allergies and other health issues. It also puts extreme pressure on your vacuum’s motor, causing it to burn out, which then costs you extra money to replace.

So, knowing when and how to clean hoover filters should form part of your cleaning routine. The filters of Hoover vacuum cleaners are generally easy to access, remove, and clean as they are marked.

Hoover recommends dusting off your filters weekly and give them a good clean or wash monthly to keep your vacuum cleaner performing at its best.

If you have not cleaned your vacuum cleaner filters in some time, it is best to take the cleaner to a place that can get dirty. A place such as outside in your yard or the garage as there will be a lot of dust and dirt flying around as you remove the filters.

To clean a Hoover air vacuum washable filter, start by twisting open the dirt cup lid. Nestled inside, you will see the filter that you can pull out and rinse with running water until clean. Squeeze out the water and leave to dry for at least 24-hours before returning the filter to the vacuum.

To clean the HEPA Media filter of your Hoover air vacuum, remove the dirt cup, and underneath where the dirt cup sits you will see a release button. Press the button, remove the filter, and tap the dirt off over a garbage bin before returning it to the cleaner. You should never wash or rinse the HEPA Media filter. This will damage the filter, it is best to replace the filter if needed or once a year as per Hoover’s recommendation.

Cleaning the brush on your Hoover

To clean the brush of a Hoover WindTunnel vacuum is the same as cleaning the brush of most upright brands. Vacuums such as a Shark or a Bissell have a similar layout of the brush compartment to the Hoover vacuum cleaner.

Although assessing the brush is a little different on the different Hoover models. For instance, on a Hoover WindTunnel 2, there are four screws to loosen on the top of the vacuum. The vacuum needs to be in an upright position to remove the brush plate. For the Hoover WindTunnel 3 Pro Pet, the plate is underneath the vacuum directly covering the brush. The vacuum needs to be turned over, with the brush facing the ceiling to access and remove the brush plate.

Once you have access to the brush, you can thoroughly clean the brush of dirt, hair, and other debris. Give it a good wash in warm water; wait for it to dry before you attach the brush to the vacuum.

If you have an issue with the brush that is not turning or spinning, check the condition of the belt and if the belt is worn or broken, replace the belt. If the belt is in excellent condition, you have cleaned the brush, and it still will not spin, then it is best to replace the brush roller.

Cleaning the Hoover pipe

Many ask how to clean a Hoover pipe as it is long, thin, and easy for dirt to be stuck inside the pipe. This may seem difficult and an awkward part of your vacuum cleaner to clean so many skips cleaning it. There are straightforward ways to clean the pipe that will not take up a lot of your time, which we describe below.

  • The best way to clean a vacuum pipe, also known as the hose, is to first detach it from the vacuum cleaner.
  • Dislodge the blockage with a broom handle and wash the pipe in a sink with warm water and soap. Rinse the pipe out thoroughly.
  • Check for damages, such as crack or holes, and try to fix them. Once dry reattach it to your Hoover machine.

For how to clean a Hoover vacuum is all about following simple and easy steps, performing one task at a time. First, dump the dirt, clean the filters, the brush, and then clean the hose. If you clean your Hoover more regularly, the task will be easier to complete.
