Wednesday—Good for You, Good for The Home: Vacuum Maintenance

Zen & the Art of Vacuum Cleaner Maintenance

Model:  Hoover Windtunnel Model No. UH70120

It's important to know how to take apart your vacuum cleaner in order to keep it in good running condition for more than a year.  I've gone through about a dozen vacuum cleaners over the years, including the apartment and dorm vacuums that I bought for the kids.

I've had a top-of-the-line Dyson (useless, don't waste your money) and a series of mid-line Hoovers and Eurekas.  I stuck with Eurekas for a long time because they were reliable and sturdy, but they were heavy, and I needed a vacuum cleaner that could navigate stairs easily.  I switched up to Hoovers when Hoover came out with the bagless Windtunnel series, and I've been happy with them ever since.

Today, I want to show you how to clean a vacuum cleaner.  It's easy if you have the right model, and if you have a good You Tube video to help guide you through the steps.  I highly recommend the how-to You Tube series …
