How to Empty a Hoover Stick Vacuum Without Dumping The Dirt Cup on the Floor

When emptying a stick vacuum’s dirt cup, you want to be sure that none of it gets on the floor. The contents of those dirt cups aren’t fun to inhale. So how do you empty a Hoover stick vacuum dirt cup?

There is a handheld release button located on one end of the vacuum. Hold your cleaner above a trash can and press the release button after pressing that button and ensuring that the battery is also removed.

Most models of Hoover vacuum cleaners require you to remove the battery from the unit before emptying the cup.

To address this process in more detail, we will break down how to remove the dirt model-by-model.

How Do You Empty a Hoover Dirt Cup Without Kicking Dust in the Air?

To ensure that dust isn’t in the air, you can choose to tie the bag around the dirt cup. This process ensures that any chance of dirt being kicked up is contained within a bag.

If you do not have a trash bag large enough, wear a dust mask and step outside to a dumpster or trash can. Dumping the dust directly into an external trash can enables you to relocate quickly.

Removing the Dust Cup From the Evolve Cordless Upright Vacuum

From there, simply pressing the button from the new bottom releases the contents of the cup. Because of this design, it is challenging to empty into a closed trash can. To address this, wear a dust mask and open it outside.

To start, place the hoover vacuum on its side and pull the battery release button labeled in your owner’s manual. The battery should slip out from the handheld and pull out straight, where you can place it on the battery charger.

Outside of the Hoover Fusion models, these also apply to the React Whole Home Cordless Vacuums (Pet Vacuum and the standard vacuum).

When performing detailed maintenance, also proceed with the complete removal of the cup.

Why Do Hoover Models Require Battery Removal Before Cleaning the Dust Cup?
