How to Keep Your Vacuum Running At Top Performance

By following some essential steps, you can keep your vacuum running its best with regular checks, cleaning, and maintenance.

Empty the Dirt Container Often – A full or overly full dirt container can reduce your vacuum’s suction power or damage the motor. The excess dirt overflows into the air passages and makes a mess. To experience maximum suction power, empty the bag or collection container when it is about two-thirds full.

Clean and Replace Filters As Needed – Filters keep your home’s air clean and hygienic as well as helping the vacuum do its best job of cleaning. Like dirtbags and containers, dirty filters block the airflow and impede your vacuum’s suction power. Clean any washable filter with warm water and a mild detergent, followed by air drying. Clean non-washable filters by tapping them gently to remove dirt or replace them.

Check Hoses, Wands, Nozzles, and Tools for Clogs – These vacuum parts can become lined with dirt and debris after weeks of use. It’s best to inspect these parts for clogs and blockages before each vacuuming session. Use a broomstick handle to push and clogs out of the air passages. Replace and of these items when they become unusable.

Keep the Roller Brush Clean

Keep the Brush Roller Clean – Brush rollers do a great job of pulling out dirt and debris from carpet fibers. Watch out for hair, pet dander, string, tape, or other items lying on the floor that can stick to and clog the roller. You must remove them as soon as possible with scissors or you can damage your cleaning machine.

Learn to Lubricate Your Vacuum’s Parts – Check your owner’s manual for parts you should lubricate and for the type of oil or spray to use. Proper lubricating helps with the maneuverability and functioning of any vacuum cleaners. Examples include wheels, brush rollers, and axels of swiveling handles. This procedure helps to ensure smooth operation and better control of your vacuum, whether an upright or canister model.

Examine Your Vacuum for Wear – At least once a month, check your vacuum for wear and possible damage. Look for cracks, damaged parts, any malfunctions, or uneven movements. Check the condition of the belt for stretching or wear and replace it when necessary. Once you detect a problem, consult your owner’s manual or talk to one of our vacuum consultants for repair ideas or replacement of parts. TIP: Never use your vacuum with damaged parts or you may cause hazards or personal injuries. WikiHow provides some additional ideas on keeping your vacuum maintained.
