Tips and Tricks for a Happier Vacuum

What’s going on in my vacuum?
Have you ever questioned how or why vacuums work?  Probably not too deeply, but being a kid at heart I decided you should learn a detail or two about vacuums.  Here’s where I will start: Vacuums are our friends.  Why must we all treat them with such disdain?  Vacuums help us to maintain a cleaner home or facility.  They save us from having to drag carpets out to the back forty and beat them with a Carpet Beater.  If you can, do yourself three favors:
1. When you unplug your vacuum use the plug.  Don’t pull it out by the cord!  We are happy to fix your vacuum if you do so, just remember the $45.00-$75.00 repair bill isn’t our fault.
2. Empty your vacuum bag when it is no more than half full.  We have unloaded more than a few vacuum bags with as much as 20 lbs. of dirt and assorted goodies.
3. Don’t pick up anything bigger than a peppercorn.  Vacuums aren’t made to do so if they have a roll-brush.
4. Lastly If you catch onto a carpet fiber and wind it around the roll brush stop and unwind it.  Save the broken belt.  Otherwise clean your roll-brush every three or four weeks.

If you follow these four hints your vacuum will thank you.  As will your pocket book.
