Did You Know?

Bagged vacuums hold up better over time than bagless models.

Upright canisters are the best option for cleaning carpet. Canisters work more effectively when used with the hose attachment to clean baseboards, stairs, crevices and
hard-to-reach areas.

Air flow and suction are essential for best sweeper performance.

Amperage is just a measurement of electricity; it does not determine the effectiveness of the vacuum cleaner.

Because rubber stretches out, vacuum belts should be changed once every six months to a year.

Carpet cleaning powder products found at the supermarket are bad for vacuum cleaners. The powder is too fine and can choke the vacuum’s engine motor.
