Q: What do I need to do to keep my vacuums running at their best?
A: There are a few things you can do to keep your vacuums functioning properly. First check your filter bags. Make sure they’re clean and not torn. The dirt should be shaken out of them regularly, and if they are damaged or too dirty to be cleaned, they should be replaced. Dirty filter bags can greatly restrict suction, and tears in the bags will allow debris to get in the motors and damage them.
The vacuum motors are obviously important. When a motor fails, it should of course be replaced, but by regularly replacing the brushes on your motors, you can get up to three times the life expectancy of not changing the brushes. How often you need to change the brushes depends on how much use your vacuums get. A good rule of thumb is to change the brushes every 6 months as part of your maintenance routine. Check your clean-out door and motor gaskets. If the gaskets aren’t giving a good seal, you will lose suction. If they’re worn or damaged, replace them.
Q: What parts should I keep in inventory to ensure proper functioning of my vacuums?
A: Keeping a good inventory of parts will prevent you from having your vacuums out of service. Your list of spare parts should include hoses, nozzles, filter bags, motors, motor brushes, timers, and coin acceptors. Any time you have to wait for parts to be shipped to you is time that your equipment can’t make any money.
Q: Is there anything else I should be doing with my vacuums?
A: Keep in mind that appearance is important. Keeping your vacuums looking nice will make them look more appealing to customers. Replace your vacuum hoses and nozzles when they appear worn. Applying new decals can also help keep the vacuums visually appealing.
