According to the current market, most families buy and use wireless handheld vacuum cleaners. Everyone likes this kind of vacuum cleaner because of its strong suction, long battery life, etc. When you enjoy the speed, efficiency, and convenience of the vacuum cleaner, have you ever cared about its “health”?
If you have a vacuum cleaner at home, have you experienced any of the following situations during use:
･After using it for a period of time, I found that the strong suction gradually became weak, and the vacuum cleaner seemed to be an “old man” who was too old to work.
･Adjust the various gears of the vacuum cleaner at will, but even if you stay in strong gear for a long time, the garbage will still gather at the suction port and “refuse to enter” the vacuum cleaner.
･After the dust cup is full of garbage, you just open the lid and gently dump out the garbage, but never clean the filter element in the middle?
There are many kinds of correct suction “diagnosis” results. What you encounter may be the blockage caused by improper use of the brush head, or it may be the blockage of the straight pipe, floor brush, etc., or the air inlet of the dust cup. The blockage caused by untimely accidents, these situations that may sound serious, can actually be solved at home by yourself, and today I will list the specific solutions for you in detail.
- The ground brush and the straight pipe are blocked
Disassemble and separate the ground brush from above the metal pipe, check whether there is any foreign matter blocking the connection, and clean it with a stick or similar object until light can pass through, which proves that it has been completely cleaned. The same is true for the cleaning of straight pipes, but generally, the straight pipes are less likely to be blocked.
- The brush head is partially blocked
Hair entanglement is generally the main reason for the blockage of the brush head, which binds other garbage to block the suction port. You only need to lift the brush head occasionally to check whether there are large pieces of garbage at the bottom and take it out in time. When necessary, disassemble it and clean it. Not bad.
- The air inlet of the dust cup is blocked
Regular cleaning of the dust cup is particularly important. Some users are lazy and want to wait until the dust cup is full or squeezed to the limit before cleaning. This behavior may not only affect the suction of the vacuum cleaner but may also cause the dust cup Blockage of the air inlet.
The correct way is to follow the prompts when the smart screen reminds the dust cup to be cleaned. It is not difficult to clean the dust cup itself. Pull it out, dump out the garbage, and gently tap the filter element in the middle, and the dust can be separated from the dust cup. Rubbish is not treasure either, why leave them to spend countless nights in the dust cup?
- The filter element is used for too long and its function is weakened
Generally, the service life of the filter element is 6-12 months, and the filter elements of many vacuum cleaners on the market are basically detachable. Regularly check the cleanliness of the filter element of the machine. If there is a lot of dust visible to the naked eye on the surface of the filter element, you can directly wash it under cold water, and install it after it is completely dried. It is not recommended to use the same filter element for a vacuum cleaner forever. Even the best soldiers will retire. Regular replacement of the filter element is one of the secrets to continuous strong suction.
So now, after understanding the causes and solutions of all the problems, you can start to check your vacuum cleaner, and maintain a strong suction to continue to be a good helper for housekeeping.
