Man vacuuming hardwood floor with Kirby upright vacuum

It’s easy to transform your Kirby vacuum cleaner into a straight suction vacuum for hardwood floors. Straight suction prevents the brush roll from spinning and avoids potential scratching of delicate wood floors:

  1. Use the belt lifter to disengage the brush roll. This will prevent the brush roll from spinning and will allow the Kirby system to clean using suction power only.
  2. Put TechDrive® power assist in neutral to prevent the rear wheels from spinning.
  3. For added protection, you can attach the optional Kirby Hard Floor Pad.
