It is very important to service your vacuum cleaner once every 12 months to 18 month. If you have bagless vacuum then you have to service the vacuum between 6- 10 months.
Here are few tips to take care of your vacuum cleaner:
Check the bag regularly and replace it when it is full. A vacuum cleaner bag that is only 1/3 full may be too full to clean efficiently. Remember that the air must pass through all the collected dust and debris, so a full vacuum cleaner bag means that the machine must work harder, or that it will not clean as well, or both. Look for a line on the bag and feel with your hand to determine about how full it is.
Replace any vacuum bag that is 2/3 full. Read the directions on the vacuum cleaner, the bag, or in the manual. Regardless of the procedure, make sure that the bag is on all the way and secure, and that any clips or holders are in place.
Empty the bin or tray on bagless models frequently. Most designs make it very easy to pop the bin out.
Clean the brush roll. Also called a beater bar, this is the spinning brush underneath that brushes dirt out of the carpets.
Clean and lubricate the bearings on the brush roll.
- Spin the brush roll on its axle with your fingers, to verify that it spins freely. If it doesn’t, you may need to clean out the bearings more thoroughly, lubricate the bearings, replace the bearings, or replace the entire brush roll (in ascending order of expense).
- Check the belt for signs of wear, and replace it if it is worn.
- Remove any cover plates on the bottom, as you would to clean the brush roll.
Pull on the belt with your fingers. It should be very taut.
- Check the hoses for clogs and obstructions. It doesn’t happen very often, but if you have lost suction, try pushing a broomstick gently through the hoses to dislodge any larger clumps of debris that are stuck. A hook made from bent coat hanger wire can also be used to pull out or loosen clogs.
