From old-fashioned bag vacuum cleaners to the latest in bagless units, vacuums are among the most common appliances found in home and businesses. While each vacuum brand is different, there is one constant that remains the same; maintenance and repair. Vacuums are designed to effectively pick up and remove dust, dirt, grime, and debris. Similarly, they can be used to clean up upholstered furniture and drapery. However, vacuum units are not exempt from mechanical failure, and only a licensed dedicated company like Gator Vacuum can restore your unit's performance and function.
As your premier vacuum repair shop in Boca Raton
, we are committed to excellence in repairing and servicing all types of vacuum cleaners. This includes replacing broken belts, along with punctures in hoses that cause suction issues. Similarly, we remove any obstacles (tangled hairs, dirt, debris, etc.) that are causing performance issues. No matter how new or advanced your vacuum cleaner is – it will experience wear and tear in the long run. With this in mind, here are some of the top reasons why owners get their vacuum units serviced, repaired or replaced.
Loss of Suction
If you own a bag vacuum cleaner
, the first thing is to make sure the bag is not full. Similarly, look for holes in the bag that can spill out accumulated dust, dirt and other elements. Also, check the compartment that holds the bag to ensure the dust and debris are not outside of the bag. If they are, it is time to change the bag because there is a hole in it. If you are pressed for time, simply bring in your vacuum to us and we will repair it in a timely and professional manner.
Most vacuums also have multiple filters that get clogged with dust and dirt. As a result, the suction on your vacuum cleaner will not as strong as it should. We recommend checking all your unit’s filters and even remove and clean them with plain water. This, of course, is only if your vacuum cleaners filters are washable. As always, do not use any harsh or abrasive cleaners on your filter, and let them dry before placing them back in the unit. Here are some more things to look out for with vacuum cleaners:
- HEPA paper model replacement filters are available at local retailers.
- If you have replaced or cleaned your unit’s filters, it should perform and deliver results again. However, if there is still a lack of suction, it might be the hoses or clogs.
- We can remove the unit’s hoses to check for clogs. In fact, we safely turn the vacuum upside down and check the intake near the beater bar.
- Beater bars are rotating brushes on the front of your vacuums. We check these components and remove any clogs or obstacles.
- If any of the hoses have holes, we can replace these hoses for most brands and models.
Burning Smell – Beater Bar Not Moving
If you smell something burning while vacuuming, you may need to replace the broken belt. This also causes the beater bar to stop moving and can prevent normal functionality and performance. We recommend purchasing a replacement belt – or simply bring it to us and we will take care of it.
Vacuum Cleaner Shuts Off During Use
Most vacuums also have high-temperature protection features. This shuts off the unit to protect the motor from excessive heat burnouts. The sensor is triggered to go off when the intake hose is plugged – or when the unit is set too low for the area being vacuumed. However, vacuums can also suddenly turn off due to consuming construction dust. This type of dust is notorious for ruining vacuum cleaner motors. Therefore, check for clogs and verify your surface (hardwood, deep shag carpets, etc). settings before use. These are but three of the common reasons why folk need vacuum repairs, maintenance, and services.
