SEBO’s top tips for a healthy vacuum cleaner

Untitled sebo 0823

 

Follow SEBO’s top tips to get the best performance for years to come from your vacuum cleaner.

Cables are the most easily damaged item on a vacuum cleaner. Damage to cables can be reduced, or even eliminated, by a few easy precautions to prevent stretching or stressing the cable.

  • When winding on the cable after use, do not pull it tight where it exits the machine leave a little slack there, otherwise the constant tension over time will fray the internal cable filaments.
  • When winding up the cable always unplug the vacuum first then start from the machine and work towards the plug, otherwise it will corkscrew up.
  • Never run over the cable, or tug on it when it is trapped by furniture.
  • Never let the cable yank the vacuum cleaner as this will break the cable core.

 

Filters let the vacuum breathe. If they get clogged up, performance will suffer and eventually the motor may be damaged.

  • When replacing the bag, check all filters. If they are dirty, they need replacing. A SEBO recommends only using genuine bags and filters as recommended by the manufacturer of your vacuum cleaner.

Brush roller bristles comb the pile and lift away the dirt and fibre. Inevitably, like brushing hair with a hair brush, long hairs/fibres can get trapped on the brush. Eventually this will affect performance.

  • Regularly check the brush roller. If hair or fibre is wrapped around it, use a pair of scissors to cut them along the brush roller between the rows of bristles. Then use the crevice nozzle attached to the hose to suck off the cut hair.

After years of use, the brush roller bristles go soft due to abrasion from hard particles and general wear. In these circumstances a new brush can return the vacuum cleaner back to its original performance.

Dream cleaning – SEBO offers some top vacuuming tips

seboTake care of your vacuum so that it lasts longer. Check filters and bags regularly – at least once every six weeks – and keep the brush roller free from hair.

Always ensure the lead is fully extended before turning the vacuum on, never pull a vacuum by its lead and always unplug before winding the cable.

Vacuuming slowly is twice as effective as whizzing round!  By taking it easy, you will do a much better job in less time.

Don’t use liquid shampoos on your carpets. The agent collects in the pile and builds up to attract more dirt and grime. Instead, use carpet cleaning powder which will absorb stains.

Make sure you use the right attachment for the job, especially on delicate flooring such as wool loop carpet.

It’s not just the floor that can be cleaned with a vacuum – use it to free curtains, lampshades, throws and sofas from dust.

SEBO vacuum cleaners are easy-to-use, provide an outstanding performance and are ideal for all floor types.
