Vacuum Cleaner Maintenance

Maintaining your vacuum cleaner

A properly maintained vacuum cleaner will ensure you achieve better vacuuming results and will also help reduce cleaning time. Vacuum maintenance doesn’t have to be hard either; simply inspect the vacuum cleaner regularly to ensure all components are clean and functioning properly.

The level of maintenance required for vacuum cleaners varies depending on different types of vacuum systems. The Duplex Cleaning Machines vacuum cleaner range consists of barrel vacuums, upright vacuums, battery vacuums and water filtered vacuums.

Following is a brief description and quick maintenance checklist for the Duplex vacuum range:
