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 have the Dyson Kinetic Big Ball Animal and it smells so bad of wet dogs. There are no filters to clean and it stinks the whole house out. I will never buy a Dyson again. Please help!


Don't blame the vacuum, blame the dogs for getting wet. But seriously, you may have to make a heavy application of disinfectant spray inside the machine. Aterwards, the entire house will have the delightful odor of disinfectant but at least the wet dog odor will be gone.

Can you wash the Roomba Cleaning Head Module


I have cleaned every part of my Roomba without any problems.

Over a year ago my dog had a serious case of the runs. Before we got home my Roomba i780 equipped with it's millions of dollars worth of R&D effectively spread said dog "business" evenly to every single square inch of hardwood floor and carpet in my house. It was quite a scene, and cost me a pair of $300 Ugs to get my girlfriend to clean it up.

Needless to say I took it completely apart and washed every single component. Actually I washed each component several times because the smell lingered.

While it says in the instructions not to use cleaning solutions on the components I can say that in my experience it did not cause any harm. Mine has been working for over a year since without issue.

I should add that prior to this happening I had cleaned the cleaning head module with fantastic many many times. I'm guessing yours is starting to accumulate that mm thick film of dirt. Just spray a paper towel with cleaning solution and slowly wipe it off. I have found putting a cloth over a screwdriver for "soft scraping" is good strategy.

If you're based in the UK, you can call us free on 08002980298. If you're based in the US, you can call free on 1866MYDYSON. We look forward to hearing from you.

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.

OUR DYSON DC 17 ANIMAL HAS A SMELL OF ABOUT 50 DOGS THAT HAVEN'T HAD BATHS FOR A YEAR.. WE HAVE TWO DOGS IN THE HOUSE AND THEY ARE KEPT CLEAN. WE'VE WASHED THE CANISTER, THE FILTER,BRUSHED OUT THE HOSES.....


Try buying "Citronella" from an essential oils dealer (maybe eBay?) Apply 6-12 drops on the paper filter element...you'll LOVE the smell.
P.S.
Haven't you asked this question before?

How to get rid of dog smell


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.

My dyson smells bad


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.

Dog smell after cleaning


This is an inherent problem with bagless vacuums. The filter(s) will absorb odors and odors will get trapped in places that you cannot clean. This is why I always recommend bagged units. They are easier to clean and the odors go out with the bag. About the only thing you can do is put a deodorizer in the machine and keep the filter clean. Be careful not to use petroleum based deodorizers as they can affect the plastic.
