Common Vacuum Cleaner Repairing and Parts Terms
Vacuum cleaners are an integral part of a cleaning system. These small appliances ensure that floors are clean and dust and dirt are removed from a surface. Anytime a vacuum cleaner breaks, it will need to be repaired. While certain repair shops specialize in fixing these appliances, replacements parts may need to be ordered from the manufacturer. If a part is no longer manufactured, the technicians at shops will recommend that individuals purchase a newer model.
Suction - Suction is the ability for a vacuum cleaner to effectively pick up and remove dirt. The pull of the suction is created by the spinning fans from the motor.
Brush Roll - The brush roll is a part of a vacuum cleaner that features the bristles used to agitate the carpet and remove dirt. The roll is an attachment that is mounted on the vacuum cleaner and rotated at high speeds.
Air Flow - Within a vacuum cleaner, air flow is the movement of air and is a factor in measuring its performance. Air flow is proportional to the total resistance in the system compared with the suction created by the motor.
Velocity of the Air Flow - The velocity of air flow is the speed at which force is exerted and picks up dirt, moving it into the bag or container.
Power Nozzle - A power nozzle is an attachment that is used in deep cleaning carpets. In addition to an electric motor, the power nozzle features a revolving brush roll that is used to clean carpets.
Micron Filter - A micron filter traps micrometer particles at a very high efficiency. The filter works by using a static electric charge that attracts the smallest of particles.
When a vacuum cleaner is broken, it needs to be repaired or replaced. The importance of vacuums in keeping a building clean is high. There are so many different types of vacuums, including ones that are handheld, cordless, and old fashioned ones that are plugged into a socket.
Keeping them in good condition is simple, but it is always best to check the hose, tube, filter, suction cup, motor, and canister container that serves as the dirt collector on a regular basis to be sure everything is in working order. When they are not, they don't work like a sweeper and pick up dust or will only partially clean the carpet. To get them fixed, simply take them to a repair shop nearby and ask them if new parts are needed or if you will be forced to purchase a replacement.
A vacuum in good condition applies as much pressure from the motor as a cyclone does. When the cleaner is broken, part of the problem might be that the cleaner is too old or that the system used for keeping it up is not good enough. On the surface, it may seem as though a proper plan for keeping it in good working condition is in place, but often this may not be true. There is always an attachment form with the vacuum with instructions on how to maintain it and which disposal to dump the dust collected. If this does not help or is confusing, contact an employee at the shop where it was purchased for some advice or a replacement.
