Prevent Damage to Your Vacuum Cleaner - Video

 

Summary: Vacuums can be damaged by the things they suck up. Running the front of your vacuum over the cord can damage the cord, and running over metal objects can cause serious damage. This video shows some ways you can avoid these potential problems.

The following is the transcript of the video:

Even though vacuums seem like they can suck everything up, certain things can really damage your vacuum cleaner. One of the first things that you need to be aware of is that the cord of the vacuum can be easily damaged.

Another major hazard to your vacuum is running over a metal object that will damage the vacuum as it is sucked into the bag. A quick and easy way to resolve this problem is to buy a strong magnet that you can place on the front of your vacuum. Any potentially hazardous items should attach themselves to the magnet.

This will cause a little bit of a hassle since you will have to clean off the magnet every now and then, but the hassle is well worth the protection your vacuum gets from it.
