Then, press the cardboard faceplate of the disposable filter bag against the adaptor’s base. By pivoting it up against the adaptor’s flat surface, bend and press the faceplate’s top tab until it is firmly fastened.

Press the toe-touch lower control pedal once at a time to set it to the desired height. Pay attention to the rise or fall of each click.

Kirby Vs Dyson And Other Vacuum Cleaners

During our Kirby sales demo, Dyson, a high-end vacuum brand, was frequently mentioned as having less cleaning power than the Kirby Avalir vacuum. 

With some models pushing £700 for top-of-the-line options, Dyson vacuums are the second priciest brand. These are significant claims from Kirby considering that Dyson asserts to have industry-leading suction power and that some models in its line have received certification from Allergy Standard Limited as being suitable for people with allergies and asthma.

We can compare vacuum cleaners from every brand under unbiased lab conditions thanks to our meticulous lab testing. The Kirby vacuum’s cleaning performance can be compared to that of other vacuum cleaners in the following ways: 

  • How well it cleans dust, debris, and fur and fluff from around the home
  • If it is a good choice for allergy sufferers
  • How easy it is to use and manoeuvre
  • How heavy and noisy it is

What Is The Kirby Vacuum Cleaner’s Life Expectancy?
