How to Deep Clean Your Vacuum (Shark Ion)

Updated: Feb 27

Do you deep clean your vacuum? ------------------>

Vacuuming is my all time favorite form of cleaning. It calms me (even though it startles the dog) and I do it daily. I use our vacuum to clean all of our floors (rugs and hard wood) and to clean our couch, chairs, and everything and anything else. I even use it to DUST!

That being said, cleaning my vacuum is not my favorite (even though it’s so satisfying). I posted how I deep clean my vacuum and a lot of you thought it was very helpful so I’ve put the details here (save this post so you can refer back!) you can also find it in my cleaning highlight. This is specifically for the cordless Shark ION vacuum- check your owners manual to be sure on cleaning methods!

Here are the steps broken down:

Step 1: Gather Supplies vacuum, attachments, microfiber cloth, tweezers, scissors, all purpose spray, and garbage can.

Step 2: Clean Canister

Empty canister into garbage, spray all purpose solution in microfiber cloth to clean inside and outside of canister (use backside of tweezers for hard to reach spots).

Step 3: Clean attachments

make sure everything is clear from debris and wipe down with cloth and spray

Step 4: Clean rollers

Remove hardwood roller to wash and use scissors to clean off carpet roller. Use tweezers to get debris from small wheels on side.

Step 5: Remove Filters

Wash filters and hardwood roller with HOT water and let air dry until completely dry (I dry for 2 days).


I do a deep clean about once a month since I vacuum frequently- but it depends on your vacuum use and home! (If you have animals it will most likely be more often), if you rarely use your vacuum then it will be much less often.

I fully believe taking the time to deep clean the vacuum ensures that it will operate properly and effectively and I don't have to deal with problems that develop to vacuums that are bombarded with hair, dust, and problems.

Always, Jess
