Change the dust bag and other parts

Many vacuum cleaner comes with a dust bag. If you notice the bag is almost full change it immediately. Changing the bag will prevent it from overflowing, which may cause severe damages. Also, changing the dust bag will provide more space, thus making it work more efficiently. Apart from the dust bug, replace the vacuum filter, vacuum cleaner bag and other belts at least every six months.

Choose products that fit your machine

When a product doesn't fit, it won't be able to pick up dirt and dust effectively and may even cause wear and tear to other parts of your machine. You can find several products that will fit most vacuum cleaners but ensure you choose the products that are specifically designed to suit only your model to prevent any damage. 

Check the area properly before you start your machine
