How To Clean Your Vacuum Cleaner/ TLC Carpet Care
Vacuum cleaners are really the real savior, saving us the many days of sweeping and beating carpets that our great-grandmothers endured. But even the best store bought commercial vacuum cleaner needs a little TLC now and then to keep cleaning at its best. Here’s how to clean yours. Keep it empty: If your vacuum has a bag, replace it before it gets full. Empty models with dust bins after every cleaning. No matter what the manufacturer says, a full bag or dust bin does cut suction.
Change the brushes: Strings, pet hair and other things often get tangled in the rolling brush at the base of your vacuum. This brush is what lifts dirt and debris from your carpet. If it can’t spin properly, it can’t clean extract properly. Replace the threads loose or use small scissors to snip and remove them.
Inspect the belts: Over time, a vacuum cleaner’s belts can become worn and thinning out. When this happens, the vacuum may stop working. Inspect your belt and replace loose or worn belts when needed.
Dust your vacuum regularly: Given their job, it’s not surprising that a lot of dust collects on a vacuum. Keep yours dust-free with a dust cloth after each use. Check the beater bar housing every month or so for accumulated contaminates and remove it, using a soft bristled brush if necessary, so you’re not simply spreading dirt when you vacuum.
Remember: never vacuum up pennies, small objets, tacts or larger pieces of trash. These can damage the interior mechanisms of your vacuum, bending the blades and straining the motor.
