As we all breathe a collective sigh of relief that winter is behind us, it is also the time for us to roll up our sleeves and tackle spring cleaning.
As you open the windows to air out the house and you pull out the most important tool for the big cleanup, your vacuum, consider this, your vacuum is often also the biggest polluter of your indoor air. An improperly maintained vacuum not only adds unnecessary frustration, it also will release dust, germs and bacteria throughout your home. This is true regardless of what type of vacuum you use, portable or central, bagged or bagless, economy or high quality, they all require periodic maintenance to both function properly and prevent harmful particles being released into the air you breathe.
There are a few simple things you can do to breathe easier:
Change the bag or empty the dust cup of bagless models.
Check your auxiliary filters. An overdue to be changed motor intake filter will drastically reduce performance.
Check your drive belt. A new belt can take a machine from useless to working like new again.
If your vacuum is releasing a foul smell, this is a sign of a machine that needs general maintenance. The foul smell is related to the accumulation of dust, mold, and bacteria within the motor compartment, and can be detrimental to your well-being.
If these basic tips don’t restore your vacuum’s performance, the problem will require a more in-depth technical inspection. That’s where Vacupro comes in! Having a tune-up done will restore your machine to working like new and eliminate potentially harmful dust emissions from the vacuum’s exhaust.
