WHY DOES MY VACUUM STINK?
Have you ever turned your vacuum on only to be greeted by an odor that was far from the scent of clean? The vacuums job is to suck up dirt, allergens, pet dander and more on the floor but while doing it's job it can also be overworked just like you and me. If you don't EMPTY the bag/canister at least monthly, then the dirt builds up and causes issues in many areas of the vacuum that you can't see but eventually can smell. A vacuum filters job is to capture microscopic particles before it damages the vacuum motor. However if the filters are not cleaned, then they simply get clogged. A clogged air filter can't leave anything clean and will eventually break down from the inside causing the vacuum to first smell, and eventually not suck well causing it to break.
How to Clean Your Vacuum Filter
At least once a month you should take your vacuum canister apart and clean the filter(s). Most vacuum filters are easily able to be cleaned by removing the bulk gunk and then rinsing them clean in the sink. Leave to air dry and then put it back together.
How Many Filters Does My Vacuum Have?
Most Vacuums have more than one filter. Filters filter gunk not only from going into the motor of the vacuum but also they filter the air returning out of the vacuum when it's on.
Make sure to find out how many filters your vacuum has and to clean every one of them.
