While buying is just the beginning, it’s the maintenance and handling of the vacuum cleaner that ensures consistent output and a longer life. Here are a few tips on how you can safely use your vacuum cleaner:
Don’t pick hard or sharp objects: Too lazy to pick that paperclip from the floor? Or that coin maybe? Well, think again before you vacuum over it. Never clean hard or sharp objects as they clog the nozzle or hose, and can even damage the fan blades of your vacuum cleaner.
Plugging/Unplugging: Unplugging your vacuum cleaner by pulling the cord from the wall socket hastily, is a big no-no. Doing so will result in the cord getting cut or damaged completely.
Regular checks: A little caution goes a long way in increasing the life of your vacuum cleaner. Take a few minutes to check your vacuum cleaner from time to time; be it checking and replacing the filters, or emptying the dirt bag..
Keep away from children: Infants and children tend to put any kind of machine or its parts in their mouth, which could turn out to be dangerous. More so, considering electricity is involved in operating one, it’s better to keep children away from the vacuum cleaner.
These are a few tips that will help you use your vacuum cleaner safely. Following them will also ensure that your vacuum cleaner works efficiently and remains effective for a long period of time.
