Some tips about vacuum cleaner maintenance are listed below:

Vacuum Bags:

Your vacuum cleaner bag should be changed if the bag is filled to the indicator line. While some vacuums have check bag indicator lights, it is recommended to change it when it’s no more than three-quarters full. It’s best to check the level of dirt in your vacuum cleaner bag before every time you use your vacuum cleaner.

Vacuum Filters:

A nice thing about vacuum filters is that you don’t have to change them as frequently as you need to change vacuum bags. If the filter shows signs of wear, or is excessively dirty or torn, it’s time to replace it.  When you buy a Crucial Vacuum filter you will most likely be able to wash the filter, use it a few more times and then replace.

It is best to change HEPA filters after six months or after the sixth bag change. Make sure that you check your owner’s manual – it will tell you where the filter is located and will have recommendations for your particular model.

Keep these tips in mind and happy spring cleaning! Remember that we at Crucial Vacuum offer free shipping, low cost – high quality products!
