Bonjour Michael !

As the lesson states, when passer is followed by a direct object - i.e. to pass [something], it will use the auxiliary avoir in compound tenses:

J'ai passé la serpillère ce matin.
Il a passé l'aspirateur dans sa chambre. 
I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !

I know that to vacuum is "passer l'aspirateur". -- Chris.

Also passer un chiffon , une éponge.... all to do with cleaning . Not to be confused with 'Passer l'éponge ' which means let bygones be bygones!
