Be sure to remove the hair and stings that get wound around the beater bar. I use scissors to cut through the matted fibers and pull them off with my fingers. What a difference with the suction when I am done!

To all who have dust: like Ms. Dobrin: I had them same problem. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, in the foothills, and in addition to being on a mountainside, I am basically in between 2 gravel quarries within 6 miles. I also have 2 cats. Here is what I’d did: 1) replace your furnace filter monthly. 2) have your heating ducts cleaned every 2-3 years. The first time I had my ducts cleaned (it’s a 1970s house) the sore throat and dry cough that I had every winter completely disappeared, and it has never, ever come back. This alone was a small miracle. 3) a humidifier will keep dust from floating around all the time 4) a HEPA air filter will be the final step to eliminate fine particles. Put one in each large room you spend time in. Very refreshing. Good luck. Dust is annoying, and also not so good for you.

Hi, We love our heavy-duty Dyson uprights. Am not happy about the lower voltage regulations allegedly to do with carbon dioxide and climate change.

All I envisage as a result are more dust-filled homes, less cleanliness and hygiene, and an elevation in alleges. I do NOT believe that the rechargeable stick things are for serious cleaning. I'm all for stockpiling real uprights now!
