Changing or cleaning the filters in your vacuum

There’s nothing like vacuuming your carpets or wiping your wood floors to freshen a home. It’s a small thing that can make a big difference, much like changing or cleaning the filters in your vacuum. Just like a marriage or relationship, you get out what you put in. By taking care of your vacuum, it will take care of your home. Its true! Did you know that a Bissell bagless vacuum may have up to three filters (depending upon the model you purchase)? If you begin to notice performance issues, it may be time to clean your filters. Clean filters are important as they help to capture dust and other particles that pass through the filter while vacuuming. To get the most out of your vacuum, remember to clean or replace your filters regularly and rely on specially designed filters directly from your vacuums dealer; Bissell, Dyson, Miele, Eureka, Dirt Devil, Shark, Oreck, Hoover, Electrolux, LG and more…

For non-washable bagless vacuum filters

We recommend they be replaced regularly (usually every 6 to 12 months) for the highest quality performance; If this is the case, consider visiting your Denver Vacuum Store that carries all vacuum sweeper bags, bagless vacuum filters, vacuum belts from all vacuum makes and models Click Here for a map to our store.

When do I replace my vacuum bag?

According to Vacuum Cleaner manufactures of bagged vacuums, it is best to check the dirt level in the dust bag before each use. This task is fairly easy, for the best cleaning performance, it is “recommended that you change your bag when it is 1/2 to 2/3 full”. If you chose to wait till the vacuum cleaner bag is full, the “small dust particles can keep the air from circulating, which can reduce the suction in your vacuum”. You may need to change your bag more frequently when “vacuuming drywall dust, pet hair, other fine particles or new carpet”.

When do I replace the belt or the filter for my vacuum?

If the vacuum is not cleaning as well as it had before , has low suction or the brush roller has stopped turning, you may have to change the brush roller belt of your vac. To change the belt, please refer to your models user guide for installation instructions or better yet contact The Denver Vacuum Store for vacuum repair and service. With bagless vacuums, having clean filters is critical to maintain cleaning performance.

What should I do if the vacuum is not picking up debris?

First, turn off and unplug your vacuum. Check to see if the belt is worn, broken or missing. If the vacuum has a bag, check to see if it is full. For bagless units, make sure the filters are clean. Also, check all the hoses and airflow areas to ensure they are free from, cracks, debris and clogs.

If you are still having a problem, be sure to reference your models user guide for handy troubleshooting tips. Other possible causes include incorrect height adjustment setting, hose not attached to suction opening, twist and snap hose not securely attached, rotating floor brush bristles are worn or jammed, clog in vacuum, dirt container is full or not installed properly, or filters are missing or installed incorrectly. Check if your machine has a separate on/off switch or button for the brushes. Also check if there is a switch that directs the air from the cleaner head to the hose and attachment assembly.
