Why does my vacuum smell like dog?

I don't even have any pets! I bought it brand new from Best Buy about a year ago and I don't buy new filters I just take out the insides of it and wash and clean it.. It is a bag less one what do u think?

  • You need to make sure all your parts and filters are completely dry before putting the vaccum back together. This is where the odor is coming from. I'd wash them in light bleach water and let them air dry.

  • Make sure it's just a weak solution. Or you could mix baking soda and water and do the same thing.

  • I don't wash them in bleach but I take everything out and leave it sit out to air dry over night so I know their dry but I will try the bleach ty!
