If you’re anything like me, an unvacuumed carpet doesn’t make you feel good. Seriously. If my living room floor has bits all over it, I simply would not be able to sit down in there. I just think it’s gross. As you’d expect then, my vacuum cleaner is a highly valued appliance at my place.
Accordingly, I take good care of it; emptying the dust bin after each vacuum (which may be slightly over the top…) and washing the pre-motor filter every six months or so. I do this because the last thing I want happening is for my trusty steed to lose suction. Such a turn of events would leave me contemplating crumbs and hairs on the carpet. And I wouldn’t like that.
Basically, if you’re like me, or even if you aren’t, you really should check this video out. Helen goes through all the causes of a loss of suction in your vacuum, as well as detailing what you can do to prevent it too. She’s got a good handful of vacuums with her in the video, so with any luck we’ll have got your brand covered. Cracking.
