A. Vacuuming with a bag that’s over half full can cause your vacuum to be up to 50% less efficient. It can also cause strain and wear and tear on the vacuum’s motor. Disposable bags can also cause damage to your vacuum, because they restrict airflow caused by dust particles trapped in the bag fibers.
You should change your vacuum’s bag at least once a month. The dirt, dust, and particles left inside the vacuum bag can cause harmful bacteria and odors to build up.
Q. How often should I replace the belt?
A. Self-propelled vacuums contain belts that turn the vacuum wheels and provide the source of agitation to clean your carpets. Most vacuum belts will become stretched out after three months of use, causing slippage. This will cause the agitating properties of your vacuum to run slower, which in turn causes less cleaning ability. The self-propelling properties can also be destroyed, causing the user to have to push the vacuum harder and work a lot harder.
Vacuum belts are not expensive to replace and can save you extra work and cleaning time in the long run.
