Useful Vacuum Service and Reapir Terms
The vacuum cleaner may have been the first multi-tasking electrical appliance. Many women reversed the hose, attached it to the exhaust and it became an improvised hair dryer. As with hair, vacuum cleaners need to be kept in good repair to guarantee a long life. Below is list of common vacuum parts to keep in mind when keeping a space clean.
Cordless – This is a portable, sometimes hand held, vacuum which is convenient for residential and commercial use. It is a versatile machine good for carpet, hardwood surfaces and upholstery.
Steam – This machine is designed to deep clean heavily soiled carpets and gets rid of pesky spots. It is great for repairing commercial and industrial sized floors and carpets.
Stick – This is a thin, upright machine. It is convenient but you should check the warranty.
Filter – It removes small dirt particles to keep the machine in good repair and should be replaced every six months.
Attachment – Allows cleaning of different surfaces such as upholstery, counter tops and eliminate small spots.
Dust Cup – This is removable and is used to collect the three D’s: dirt, dust and debris.
Pump – This is important for the steam vacuum as it transfers fluid from the floor to the tank.
Brush Roll – It loosens dirt by agitating it so the vacuum can suck it up.
Squeegee – Use this on smooth surfaces to remove spills.
Wet Vac Motor – This enables wet and dry cleaning on a variety of surfaces.
Vacuum cleaner service and repair shops often have the ability to work on a variety of residential, industrial, and commercial vacuums. Other shops, however, might choose to specialize on cordless, hand-held, and upright models that are commonly used in households.
A repair and service shop that focuses on repairing appliances will commonly have the ability to fix several types of models. They might have experience with a variety of wet-dry, steam, and portable cleaners. Before fixing these items, they might ask you to identify malfunctions that have prevented you from using the floor cleaners properly. By telling them whether it does not have enough suction to lift dirt from the floor or does not produce steam to remove dirt from carpets, you might make it easier for them to fix the problem quickly.
Vacuum repair shops might also have the parts that you need to fix the appliance on your own. If you know the type of replacement bag, brush, belt, or other part that you need to fix your model, then you might want to contact the stores to see whether they have them in stock.
Since you want to make sure that you choose a reliable repair shop that can fix your outdoor, portable, cordless, and indoor vacuum cleaners at an affordable price, you might want to search the Internet for consumer forums where individuals discuss their experiences with various stores in your area. This could help you choose a vacuum cleaner repair shop that offers their clients cheap prices and reliable services.
