Most folks know that routinely vacuuming the floors daily is the healthier approach for a clean home and it preserves the overall condition of your carpet as well as contributing to extending the overall lifespan of your carpet. We are so focused on the carpets, we sometimes we forget about the tools that help keep them clean. Tough Carpet Cleaning would like to remind you to periodically clean the vacuum itself. At this time we have related how to get your bagless vacuum clean.
How to Clean a Bagless Vacuum Canister
1) Collect Your Cleaning Equipment: Getting everything together prior to beginning the project will offer a smoother and efficient execution.
– Compressed Air
– Dust Cloth
– New Filter
– Sink Filled with Warm Soapy Water
– Vacuum’s Manual
2) Vacuum Cleaner Disassembly: If need be, use your manual for assistance; break down the vacuum’s removable parts; the dust bin, the secondary cyclone piece, all attachment accessories, the pre-motor filter, HEPA post-motor filter, and roller, and other such pieces.
3) Clean Removable Parts: Once again, consult your manual before submerging any pieces in the prepared soapy water to ensure none of the pieces will be compromised. Typically, the vacuum’s dust bin, extension wands, secondary cyclone, and pre-motor filter can all be washed with soap and water bath. Any part that cannot be soaked, or do not come off the vacuum, need to be wiped clean with a dust cloth. Manufacturers recommend the vacuums get cleaned monthly and the vacuum’s HEPA filter be replaced every 6 months. Let the parts air dry completely over night, or longer if needed following the completion of all of the components being cleaned. All pieces need to be completely dry before reassembly.
4) Clean Out the Compartments: Generally, the dust bin doesn’t fully seal, which results in the interior of the vacuum to collect dust. Blast the areas with a can of compressed air to effectively remove any of the dust. Be sure to wear a face mask and/or do it outside where the dust can spread out more quickly as the dust will explode off the vacuums surface, especially if you have allergies.
5) Rotating Floor Brush Maintenance: Use the screwdriver to unscrew the casing to reach the rotating floor brush. Once removed, use the scissors to cut the tangling of strings and hair from the rotating brush; with your fingers, grip the debris and pull out any remainder debris. Before you reattach the brush and screw the casing back together, clean out the cylinder and consult step 6.
6) Remove Vacuum Clogs: A small circular air passageway just behind the floor brush is the primary passageway of the suction path for dirt and debris. Use a toothbrush designated for cleaning and clear out any clogs. Don’t forget to check the hose out and ensure the passageway is clear.
7) Vacuum Reassembly: After you have put the brush and casing back together, and the remaining parts are thoroughly dry, install the new post-motor filter if it is time and reassemble. Wipe down the entire exterior of the vacuum.
