<h2 class="Heading5a">Things You'll Need:</h2>
<span>Vacuum and its hose attachments</span>
<span>Shampoo specific to the couch's fabric</span>

<span>Rag and cotton swabs</span>
<h4 class="Heading4a">Preparing the Sofa</h4>
Vacuum the sofa, its pillows and its cushions with the hose
attachments. Do not forget the arm rests and backing of the couch. This
will clean loose dust and dirt.<br />
Dust the wood areas with a soft rag and a cotton swab for the
area between the material and wood.<br />
Find your warranty. If it is still in effect, the warranty
may be null and void if you apply any cleaning solutions. Call the
company for cleaning instructions.<br />
Determine the sofa's fabric. This tag is typically found
under the cushion area.<br />
Buy shampoo specifically for your sofa's fabric.<br />
Rent a rug shampooer.<br />
Assemble the shampooer according to its directions.<br />
Test a small area of the sofa. The best place may be the back
of the couch or under the couch if possible.<br />
Clean the entire couch. This will prevent watermarks.<br />
Allow it and all its parts to dry before reassembling the
cushions and pillows.<br />

Are the rugs long haired or short haired? Most likely the suction is just causing the noise when it picks up the rug and the buzz saw could be the beater bar hitting the rug then. I actually own a DC14 and it does the same thing and the rugs like to be dragged along. Nothing really to fix this, just the way it is. You could try it with the beater bar raised and see how well it works then but this sounds normal.
