Have You Washed Your Vacuum’s Filter Lately?

We can’t stress enough how important it is to keep a clean filter in your vacuum. It’s simple math, a clean filter = a happy vacuum and a healthy home. If your vacuum came with a filter, you need to take care of it and it will take care of you. Just like the air filter in your car keeps your engine running smooth, a clean filter on your vacuum makes it easier for your vacuum to do its job.

Crucial Vacuum makes it easy to find the filter you need at the lowest prices on the Internet, plus we offer free shipping.

But it gets even better! We are just full of ways to save you money at Crucial Vacuum. Bet you didn’t know that many of our filters are washable and reusable! That’s right, you can purchase one of our replacement filters and use it over and over again. That is something that can’t be said most vacuum’s original filters. That’s just another reason why we are so awesome!
Ideally, your filter should be washed every 3-4 uses. Loss of suction is a good sign that it is time to wash your filter. But remember, you can only wash washable filters!

So how do you wash your filter? We are glad you asked! It’s really quite simple. All you will need is your vacuum’s manual, your Crucial Vacuum Washable Filter, a garbage can, and water.
- First things first: refer to your manual to see how to detach your vacuum’s filter and then remove it.
- Next you will want to try to remove most of the excess dust from the filter. Tapping the filter on a garbage can will do. It is best to do this outside so you aren’t creating a mess to clean up indoors.
- Now you need to carefully rinse the filter. Hold the filter under running water to rinse the outside surface. It’s not necessary to scrub the filter between the pleats or to use brushes or other materials. In fact, using more than running water could damage the filter.
- Allow your filter to air dry around 24-48 hours before replacing it in your vacuum. With proper cleaning and care our filters can last up to 6 months.

Voila! That’s it. How simple is that? Think of all the money you will save on filters, and even better, think of how clean your house will be now. You’re welcome!

There’s No Place Like Home: Consider Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality This Winter

Let’s face it, summer is long gone, fall is whizzing by, and winter is just around the corner. Winter means colder temperatures, shorter days, family time, and holidays. It’s not all bad!

The delicious aromas of holiday dinners fill the air as families gather to spend time together indoors. But that’s not all that’s in the air. If you haven’t changed your vacuum’s filter lately, there may be hundreds of harmful allergens and pollutants floating around in your house.

Did you know that the air in your own home could be affecting your overall health? Your home is supposed to be your safe place. But if you and your loved ones aren’t breathing clean air, your safe place can make you sick.

Maintaining good clean air indoors is crucial, especially during the winter when windows are closed and almost all of your time is spent indoors. Even if you vacuum regularly, you could still be surrounded by dust and other allergens in your home.

Vacuum filters are made to trap dust, mold, pollen, and other indoor air pollutants. If you or your loved ones have allergies or asthma, those pollutants can make those conditions even worse.

If the filter on your vacuum is old, than vacuuming does nothing more than throw the dirt and dust back into the air that you breathe. That light dust that you see on your blinds when you open your windows? It’s just dust that has escaped your vacuum. You can try vacuuming again but until you replace your filter you will just keep recycling that dust. It’s a never-ending cycle!

But Crucial Vacuum has good news! All you have to do is replace your vacuum’s filter. The filter does it’s job (traps dust and allergens) and you can get back to staying warm and enjoying your time at home while breathing clean safe air. Honestly, it’s that easy .

Need another reason to replace your filter? Consider this: As your vacuum’s filter becomes dirty, it becomes harder for the vacuum to pull air through which causes the unit to wear out faster. Replacing your filter is an inexpensive and easy way to ensure clean air and keep your vacuum running right.

Compare the price of a replacement filter to the cost of having your vacuum serviced or replaced due to wear and tear and you will see that replacing your filter is the way to go. Whether your vacuum is a Dyson, Hoover, Eureka, Dirt Devil, Bissell, or other top brands, we have the filters you need. Your vacuum and your lungs will thank you for it!

Don’t Toss Your Old Vacuum! 3 Simple Fixes That Can Make Your Old Vacuum New Again

Make Your Vacuum Like New Again!

Is your vacuum failing to live up to your standards? Perhaps your vacuum just isn’t picking up like it used to, leaving behind pet hair, fuzz, or other debris. Is there a strange smell coming from your vacuum? Or maybe your vacuum has lost some suction and just isn’t the same as it used to be. Rest assured; you are not alone, and you do not have to live this way! So many people experience one or both of these common issues with their vacuum and immediately draw the conclusion that they need a new vacuum. But we have good news! Crucial Vacuum is stocked with the things you need to get you’re your vacuum up and running like new again. So, before you toss your trusty old vacuum aside on your way to replace it, try these quick and simple fixes that may have your vacuum back to it’s old self in no time.

Vacuum Not Picking Up Like it Used to?

If your vacuum isn’t picking up like it used to check to see if the brush bar roller is turning. If it’s not, the solution could be as simple as removing wads of tangled hair or carpet string from the area. If that isn’t the problem a quick replacement of the belt could also do the trick.

Loss of Suction?

If you are experiencing loss of suction, check first to make sure that the bag is not full. So many people forget to change the bag and wonder why their sweeper won’t suck anything else up. If your bag isn’t full try checking to make sure the hose is clear. If the bag isn’t full and the hose is clear you should check the filters.

Strange Smells?

If you notice a strange or bad smell coming from your vacuum cleaner, there are a couple of easy fixes that may help. If it smells like rubber, you may have snapped the vacuum cleaner’s belt. But if it just plain stinks, chances are you need to change your filter. Filters can be found on both bagged and bagless vacuums. Vacuums with filters are great for trapping dust and other allergens in the home and make for cleaner air, which equals less tissues and sneezing. But these filters can become clogged and full over time making them less efficient. As a general rule, filters last considerably longer than bags. Therefore you won’t have to change them as often as you change your bag. But you should pay close attention to the filter to be sure it doesn’t need changed and isn’t clogged so that it can do its job.

So before you toss your vacuum, try these simple quick fixes first. With a little attention and routine maintenance there is probably still plenty of life left in your vacuum.

Indoor Air Quality and Your Vacuum Cleaner

We humans spend a lot more time indoors than outdoors. Purchasing a vacuum filter and vacuum cleaner is important part of improving indoor air quality.

We humans spend a lot more time indoors than outdoors. Purchasing a vacuum filter and vacuum cleaner is important part of improving indoor air quality.

We spend more time indoors than outdoors. Having high quality Indoor Air Quality  (IAQ) Is Crucial!  Did you know: if you don’t breathe you die? Of course you did! But here is a slightly more disturbing fact from the Environmental Protection Agency: poor indoor air quality can contribute chronic respiratory conditions like as asthma, allergies, and in extreme cases severe lung disease.

Indoor air quality is not typically the forerunner of the “getting healthy” discussion, but improving it can have a significant impact on everyday life. Harmful gases, microbial growths, and tracked dirt all contribute to congestion and poor air quality – but you have a defense; it’s probably an upright, and sitting in your cleaning closet right now….Your vacuum cleaner!

Indoor air quality is hindered by an infiltration of particles, pollutants and dust. But with a once-a-week cleaning regimen including an efficient vacuum and vacuum cleaner filter, you can eliminate pounds of contaminants from your home every time you clean.

The efficiency of your vacuum, and in turn, your IAQ is dependent on your filter’s capabilities. A clean, new vacuum filter traps particulates within the machine. But a faulty inefficient filter actually kicks all the material back into the air. As you can imagine, indoor air quality and vacuum filter efficiencies are directly related.

Indoor Air Quality is not just a luxury – it’s crucial. Use your vacuum once each week, and keep that filter in working condition. You know, if you like breathing and everything.

Keep your indoor air quality pristine with a Crucial Vacuum Filter found here.
