Maintaining your carpet cleaners

Whether you own an Electrolux vacuum cleaner or just adore the Kirby models, maintaining your carpet cleaning machines will help improve its effectiveness as well as prolong its life. Here are a couple of easy things you can do to maintain your vacuum:


  • If you have a bagged vacuum cleaner, remember to check the bag on a regular basis. A full bag might result in a less than desired sucking power. Also remember to replace your bag with a new one every couple of months, depending on how regularly you use it.
  • If you use a bagless model, also be sure to empty it on a regular basis. Again, a filler bin might result in a lowered suction power. Also remember to wipe the remaining dust particles away.
  • Remember to flip your vacuum and clean the brushes as well. Here you will find all sorts of yukky stuff like hair twisted around it. Also remember to clean the bearings and wipe the dust particles away.
  • Clean your filters, nooks and crannies regularly to make sure there are no large accumulation of dust and dirt.
  • Check your hoses for any obstructions and clean them properly on a regular basis.
