Vacuums-What makes one better than the other?

Vacuums are machines. They are therefore prone to failure and bad engineering just the same as anything else with moving parts.  To simplify the story-  what makes one vacuum better than the other?  There is no doubt in my mind that one thing stands out way beyond all other measures. #1 The simple results that you feel and see as you vacuum.  If the carpet looks clean and the vacuum has dirt in it,  things are working.  It doesn’t take long to separate the men from the boys quickly thereafter though.  There are three basic measures that matter when it comes to vacuums.
1. Waterlift
2. CFM air movement
3. Amperage
If all the stars line up, a vacuum (be it canister or upright) has amazing measures working for it.  What’s the answer then?  #2 consumer and user reviews that are independent in nature.  Good luck with that!  But if you can, find an independent opinion and you are well on your way.  Here’s where the buy local plea comes in; do you trust the people you buy from?  Can they fix it if it breaks?  Need I say much more?  We will always match an online distributor’s price on the equal piece and beat it by 2%.  That is the law of the land here.  Try us.

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.
