It's the new year, and that means that it's time to think about maintaining and spring cleaning your home. It can make you feel great, cleaning out your home and getting ready for the warmer weather. However, when you're doing this, don't forget your appliances? With a little TLC, your vacuum cleaner can be ready to go for the new year too!
We put a lot of faith into our vacuum cleaners and assume that they'll just keep going no matter what. However, they're an appliance with moving parts, and sooner or later they'll need repair or replacement. Take good care of your vacuum though, and it'll keep going for years to come. Here are some of the things you need to keep an eye on:
The suction isn't as good as it used to be: If you feel as though the vacuum cleaner isn't as efficient at picking up dirt as it used to be, this could be because the bag or canister is too full. Many people think you should wait till the bag is full to replace it, but in fact, it should be replaced when it's about 2/3 full. If it's still not working properly after this, you may need a vacuum clear repair West Palm Beach to see if it needs some TLC.
The brush roll isn't spinning: The brush roll is the part of your vacuum cleaner that picks up dust and dirt and makes it easier for it to be sucked up by your machine. When it's not working properly, your vacuum cleaner won't be as effective. Take a look at yours, as things like hair can get wrapped around it and stop it from working properly.
The belt is worn out: The belt is what spins the brush around, and it's vital to ensure your vacuum works properly. This does need replacing every 6 months - 1 year, depending on how much you use it. Take a look at your belt. If it's slipped, or worn out, you may need to have it replaced.
Sometimes when a vacuum cleaner stops working, we assume that it's simply broken and that we need a new one. A lot of the time though, it just needs to be serviced or repaired and it's good as new. Having your cleaner serviced every year or so can keep it going for a long time, so it's well worth investing in that extra care for your vacuum cleaner.
Now's the time to take your vacuum cleaner to a vacuum repair shop West Palm Beach, such as us here at Gator Vacuums. We'll take a look at your vacuum and offer you a free estimate for services. If you don't want to have the old vacuum cleaner serviced, you can pick from one of our many new models on offer. Either way, you'll come away with a vacuum cleaner that's ready for a good spring clean at your house.
There are a few things you can do to keep your vacuum cleaner in good condition and keep servicing costs down. Here are a few tips from the experts:
Empty the bag regularly: This keeps the suction working properly, and helps you keep the inside of the vacuum cleaner clean. Keeping on top of emptying your vacuum cleaner can head off a lot of problems.
Keep the bag attached properly: Learn how the bag is attached to your model, and attach it properly. If you don't, it can lead to debris getting into the machinery itself and causing problems.
Clean the filter: Newer vacuums will have filters, that clean the air in your home by catching allergens and other debris. Make sure you're cleaning it often, to ensure that it can work at full capacity.
It's important to keep your vacuum cleaner serviced regularly, in order to keep it working properly. Get it serviced now ready for spring cleaning season, and you'll really see the difference it makes. It's time to get those carpets clean and ready for the new year!
