|My Vacuum Is Not Picking Up?
- Check belt. If it is broken or worn replace with a new one made for your vacuum.
Even if the belt is not broken, a belt that has been on your vacuum for more than six
months looses its tension because it stretches out. Replace your vacuum belt at least
once a year. Most of the time we do not charge labor to change your belt. Feel free to
bring in your vacuum and we will do all of the hard work for you.
- Check bag. If it is full or nearly full replace it with a new one. If you have picked up
fine dust such as plaster or carpet freshener, replace bag even if it is not filled up, as
fine dust plugs up the pores of the paper. If you have a bag-less vacuum replace filter
often. They can't be cleaned well. Check hoses and dirt channels for obstructions.
What Style Belt Or Bag Do I Need?
-Look inside the bag compartment and check for a style number printed on the bag.
Check on the silver label which is usually on the bottom of the machine. It should have
the model number there. Also it may indicate the belt and or bag style.
What Is The Best Vacuum To Buy?
-Everybody's needs are different. What one person likes another person dislikes.
Canister vacuums are more versatile. Uprights are generally faster to use. Come in to
one of our locations and try the various types out.
-Try to stay away from some of the common name brands (usually found in big box
stores). They are not the same as they use to be. The material they are made of will
not last long.
-Also, most bagless vacuums are a mess to deal with. Their filters have to be
changed often and they are more expensive than paper bags.
