Is Glade carpet powder bad for your vacuum?
Furthermore, is it OK to use carpet powder with a Dyson?
A WARNING TO ALL DYSON USERS: Do not under any circumstances vacuum up any fine white powders/particles with your Dyson vacuum. It will kill the motor and it is NOT covered under the warranty. This includes things like white powder carpet cleaners (carpet fresh, etc), baby powder, baking soda, cornstarch, etc.
One may also ask, can you vacuum powder? If vacuuming powder with your shop vac concerns you, just open up the vac and spray it with water inside. Wet the filter really well. Then vacuum the powder and there will be no problem. Wet powder surely won't ignite.
Beside this, is it OK to use carpet powder?
Carpet powder residue, if not completely removed from the carpet after use, has the potential to be inhaled. Another consideration for powders, especially deodorizing powders, is that their fragrance may irritate members of the household with allergies or chronic respiratory conditions.
Does baking soda ruin your vacuum?
Baking soda can Clog the Filter and Bags. The small particles of baking soda can clog a HEPA filter or really any vacuum cleaner filter. If the filter becomes too clogged it makes the vacuum cleaner have to work extra hard which can wear out the machine a lot quicker.
