There are five areas of your vacuum that need to be regularly checked and maintained.
Clean your canister, foam filter, and flat cloth filter WEEKLY. After filters get wet, they need to dry for at least 48 hours. Your brush roll should be checked after every clean.
Pro Tip: Set a recurring reminder on your phone to perform routine maintenance. It should be completed weekly.
It’s important that in additional to scheduled maintenance that you treat your vacuum with care during day to day use.
When carrying your vacuum, always set it down. Don’t drop it.
ALWAYS carry your vacuum by the carrying handle on the canister. The tall handle is for pushing & if used to carry can become loose and result in repair costs
ALWAYS carry your vacuum when outside. The wheels are made of rubber, which is great on hardwood floors, but can pick up small rocks and debris. Rolling the vacuum outside can pick up small rocks that will damage client’s floors!
