Accessing the preliminary dustbin filter is exceptionally easy on the Panasonic. Manufacturers recommend rinsing these filters once a month.

It's important to clean the cyclone portion of the dustbin as well. I've used a compressed air canister but for deeper cleaning, follow the manufacturer's instructions.

The telescoping crevice tool is unique in its stretch and gives you the ability to vacuum crevices without reaching or bending over.
