Extend the Life of Your Vacuum Cleaner

by Mary G Johnson 09/22/2019

Many homeowners spend so much time trying to preserve the life of their furniture, carpet, and flooring with careful and regular cleaning that they often forget to maintain the vacuum cleaner. So how can you care for your vacuum cleaner? With a bit of maintenance, it is easy for you to enjoy your vacuum cleaner for many years. 

Check out these simple maintenance tips to extend the life of your vacuum cleaner.

Change the dust bag and other parts

Many vacuum cleaner comes with a dust bag. If you notice the bag is almost full change it immediately. Changing the bag will prevent it from overflowing, which may cause severe damages. Also, changing the dust bag will provide more space, thus making it work more efficiently. Apart from the dust bug, replace the vacuum filter, vacuum cleaner bag and other belts at least every six months.

Choose products that fit your machine

When a product doesn't fit, it won't be able to pick up dirt and dust effectively and may even cause wear and tear to other parts of your machine. You can find several products that will fit most vacuum cleaners but ensure you choose the products that are specifically designed to suit only your model to prevent any damage. 

Check the area properly before you start your machine

Before you begin to run your tool on a surface, make sure you have a good look over the surface. Small items like coins, parts from your kid's toys, paper clips, and bobby pins can cause serious problem to your vacuum cleaner.

Clean your vacuum cleaner 

It is not only your home that needs cleaning. Give you Vacuum cleaner a good scrub with a damp sponge to get rid of clogged up dirt and dust. Neglecting to clean your vacuum cleaner will allow dirt accumulate on it thus clogging some parts which may shorten the life span of your vacuum cleaner. Begin by checking every part and wipe off any dirt from the Vacuum hose, head, filter, etc.

By following these useful tips, you can increase the life of your vacuum cleaner and keep it in tip-top shape. Do not try to open you vacuum cleaner If you don't know where the belts, filters, or bag of your vacuum cleaner are located, meet a vacuum cleaner expert for assistance.
