We do not know how people maintained the hygiene of the home and the floors, but today we simply cannot imagine life without a vacuum cleaner. When we need to clean the house, it is one of the indispensable appliances.
However, with long-term use, overtime during use we notice that the vacuum cleaner pulls less and less and does not work as efficiently as in the beginning. Fortunately, the solution to this situation is very simple.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO RETURN THE VACUUM CLEANER AS IT WAS NEW:
Open the part of the vacuum cleaner where the dust bag is located. Pay attention to the tire on the cover. To work properly, this tire, when closing the lid, must make contact with the tire on the dust bag.
In fact, the contact between the two tires must be hermetically sealed. In this case, when the vacuum cleaner pulls poorly, it is possible that deposits of dust have formed on the tire, which in some places are up to one millimeter thick.
For these reasons the two tires cannot be glued well to each other and the engine instead of drawing air through the vacuum cleaner hose, the air is drawn between these two tires which significantly reduces the power of the appliance.
A similar thing can happen to the rubber part of a dust bag. You probably assume the solution is simple. Use a damp cloth to remove hard deposits from the rubber parts.
Once you have done this, it is time for the filters to be cleaned. These filters can become significantly dirty after prolonged use of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the vacuum filter from the housing.
Do the same with the filter that purifies the air coming out of the vacuum cleaner. Shake both filters well first to mechanically remove large deposits of dust. Then wash them with detergent and cold/lukewarm water. You can also add new filters if you have one, or if the manufacturer has provided a replacement. However, if you do not have spares or where to buy them, simply wash them with gentle movements, without pressing so that they are not damaged (similar to air conditioning filters).
Allow them to dry nicely in a warm and ventilated place (lean them so that air can flow around them), and when you are sure that there is no moisture on them, carefully return them to their places.
When you turn on the vacuum cleaner you will notice that it works again like a new – good vacuum and does not overheat.
