Adjust the height of your vacuum  …  Examine your vacuum. Many upright vacuum cleaners have a height adjustment, adjusting the height of your vacuum is the secret to vacuum your deep pile carpet . Adjusting the setting for  deep carpet pile  will raise the machine wheels  up so that it can maintain air flow and allow the  vacuum to be pushed over the pile.

Cannister vacuums also may have a height adjustment. It will be located on the head of the cleaner. Look for it or consult the manual.

Your  canister vacuum cleaner may have a suction control instead of a height adjuster. This achieves the same result, you can make suction more or less powerful and the control is usually located on the stem of the cleaning head.

If your own vacuum cannot be adjusted for suction or for pile height, then  you might need to start looking for an alternative vacuum cleaner to vacuum your deep pile carpet. There are several different models available that will not only clean deep –pile carpet but can clean every other carpet type also.
