Let’s look at the different ways to maintain your vacuum cleaner!

Your vacuum cleaner works hard to keep your home neat and clean. For some homeowners, vacuum cleaners are an investment in their homes. And like any investment, making sure it receives the proper care is the best way to safeguard it. There are numerous ways to ensure your vacuum works as it should for many years. Let’s look at the different ways to maintain your vacuum cleaner!

Replace Your Vacuum’s Bag Regularly

Replacing the vacuum bag regularly is one of the quickest and simplest things you can do to maintain your vacuum cleaner. You’ll want to replace the bag when it’s about 2/3 full to keep your machine working at its best. Not when it’s entirely packed with dirt. If there is already a considerable accumulation of debris inside it, there won’t be space for when the vacuum cleaner picks up the trash. Hence, your vacuum will no longer operate as efficiently as it should.

Empty Out Bagless Vacuum Cleaners Often

One of the primary advantages of owning a bagless vacuum cleaner is that you are able to view how much debris and dirt is inside the machine. Many bagless vacuums have a marker indicating when to empty them. It would also be helpful to empty the receptacle even if the debris hasn’t reached this marker. You may even want to rinse it out with water to ensure all of the debris is gone based on the type of bagless machine you have.

Occasionally Clean the Brush Roll

Sometimes, you’ll want to clean the brush roll of your vacuum cleaner. Over time, items can wrap around the roll and prevent the brush roll from spinning. Examples include hair, floss, and string. While it is different from model to model, the roller of most vacuums is attached by a plate. Maintain your vacuum cleaner by performing the following:

1.) First, remove or lift the plate and slide the roll out from the slots on either side.

2.) Eliminate any apparent objects wrapped around the roll with your fingers or scissors.

3.) You might even consider washing the roll off with soap and water to ensure cleanliness.

Check the Belt for Any Damages

Another way to maintain your vacuum cleaner is to check the belt (keeps the roll in place) after checking the brush roll. You will have to replace the belt if it isn’t tight against the roll. Examine to see if the belt is stretched out, narrow, hasn’t slid out of place or has become damaged in a specific spot. As a general rule, you should replace the belt every six months to a year.

However, it depends on how frequently you use your vacuum cleaner and your brand and model. If you replace the belt, remove the roll, slide the belt off, and slide the new belt on. Also, it’s an easy process to perform, and you can read the Instruction Manual for the step-by-step instructions for replacing the belt.

Examine the Filters & Hoses of Your Vacuum Cleaner

Lastly, most newer vacuum cleaner models have filters included to assist pick up particles that might contaminate your indoor air quality. You’ll want to clean and replace the filter if your vacuum cleaner has one. Depending on how simple it is to remove, you can rinse a plastic filter and shake a fabric or paper one. Remember that maintaining that filter clean can impact the air you breathe in.

Moreover, if you notice that your hose attachment isn’t functioning right, a trapped object might be the source. You can view the object by peering into the hose or putting a hook inside it to see if it hits against something. Some of the most common items to get caught inside hoses are underwear, socks, or small toys.
