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.
