How to get rid of dog smell

Everytime I run vacuum -it smells of wet dog. We do have a dog but our dog has never smelled like that. I have cleaned everything from filter,etc. and nothing works.

    I am unable to find anything on how to clean the filter on the DC17 Animal. It smells horribly of dog, and nothing I do helps it. It also has lost suction, and I am hoping that will help with this problem as well.

I had this problem along with a clogged filter. I used the solution for clogged filter here on Fixya and the dog smell went away too. It has to do with the flange on the cylinder getting pushed up out of position. Give it a try.

Wash your filter and let it dry well also use a couple times some of the odor eliminator powder for carpets that they sell at the store . And make sure you do not vacuum any food because the odor stays.

How do I get rid of "dog smell"?


The only thing that might save it is to disassemble it, preferably outside, to get access to the entire path from intake to collector and clean that path with something that will neutralize the stench without harming the machine. I used this technique on an upright and had to scrub and flush every part with scented household cleaner. After it was dry, I started it and let it inhale a good dose of Lysol.

Dyson dc18 smells like dirty dog


I would clean the filter and let it dry completely for 24 hours. if you put the filter in wet and the run the vacuum the moisture well go in to the cyclone and the dirt would attach to it causing a snowball effect if you will, causing the vacuum to build up with debris and to smell. so clean out that filter really well and let it dry really well then try it out. if it still smells then i would replace the cyclone. they run anywhere around $80.

I use the vacuum for cleaning up **** and **** from my dog now everytime i run the vacuum the whole house smells like **** what can i do to clean out the vacuum so it smells less


I am not surprised at all ... this is a very unhealthy procedure you are using ... endangering the health of everyone in your home ... particularly the family but not excluding visitors. Please stop this at once. You are sending all the stuff in the **** and **** into the air for all to breathe, eat and live amongst. I suggest you toss the vac and get your rugs professionally cleaned. I also suggest you get your animals under control.

I get a lot of vacuum cleaners that smell like "dog". any suggestions on how to get rid of that smell???


Change all of the filters in it and then use some granulated anti odor packets that you can buy for vacuums. **** this up into the vacuum while you are vacuuming and that will make sure these particles will get into all the airducts to get rid of this odor.

Even the professionals have problems getting pet stain smells out of carpeting. You need to use a good deodorizer and get the carpet as dry as possible.

Hi.

Yes you can use lots of soapy water & pressure washer or hose to clean the vortex unit but remember it will take at least 36 hrs to dry out internally.
