James Dyson was the first person to invent a vacuum cleaner that did not lose suction by using what he patented as "Dual Cyclone" technology. The Dyson Company now produces over 13 different kinds of vacuums, including the "Animal," "All Floors," "Turbinehead" and "Ball" types. Operating a Dyson vacuum is generally fairly simple, including changing the level on the vacuum in order to clean bare floors or carpets.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Look at the vacuum head on the right side for the level adjustment switch. There is a setting for "Carpets" and one for "Bare Floors."

  2. 2

    Plug in the vacuum and press the "On/Off" switch. If you will be vacuuming a carpet, the vacuum should already be in the "Carpet" setting and no adjustment is needed.

  3. 3

    Put your foot on the front of the vacuum head and push down while tilting the handle in a horizontal movement to begin vacuuming.

  4. 4

    Stop the vacuum and place the handle in an upright position before changing the level for bare floors. Adjust the setting to "Bare Floors" and move the vacuum to the floor to be vacuumed before starting.

  5. 5

    Do not use the Dyson in "Carpet" mode when on bare floors to avoid scratching or damaging the floor with the carpet brushes.
