  • My vacuum doesn't have bags, but I empty the container after every time I vacuum. I also clean off the filters and anything I find within the vacuum that I don't want left inside of it (hair mostly). I also cut the hair off the round thingy that spins around on the floor to pick up dirt and what not. When I empty the canister I rinse it and dry it before placing it back on the vacuum.

  • I don't have to do it that often because I have mostly wood floors. I use the vacuum on the area rugs and I use the floor attatchment, but it doesn't get as linty as it does with a wall to wall carpet.

    Although I recently learned that you should NOT vacuum up large pieces of food. They just rot inside your vacuum and stink! ...and I thought they just got sucked up into oblivion!

  • I have a bagless vacuum which I love! So, I just dump all the stuff right after I vacuum.
