The vacuum cleaner helps you to vacuum the entire house, but you should also remember that this appliance also needs to be cleaned and disinfected. In addition, a clean vacuum cleaner means cleaner air and less dust in the house.
Unplug the vacuum cleaner, and spill out the dust container or change the bag if it’s a paper bag. Clean the vacuum cleaner filter and rinse with water (water mixed with detergent) all the dust pieces. Cleaning the vacuum cleaners filter makes the air clean and less unpleasant.
Take a wire hanger and unwire it to clean the vacuum cleaners hose in all hard-to-reach areas.
Wrap paper towels or a wet cloth on a stick and catch it with duct tape. Clean with it the entire vacuum’s hose. Carefully not to pepper it!
Moisten several clean cloths with a concentrated white vinegar and water solution or rubbing alcohol and water, and repeat the procedure to disinfect the hose. Don’t use the vacuum cleaner again until the smell of vinegar has completely disappeared, which means that all components have to dry out.
Clean the carpet brushes and those that replace the bottom end of the vacuum cleaner. Use vinegar or rubbing alcohol to disinfect all parts that come into contact with the dirty surfaces.
Take great care not to touch with vinegar or rubbing alcohol the rubber parts of the vacuum cleaner because these acid substances can damage the rubber.
Wipe all outer parts with a cloth and make sure that the vacuum cleaner is not plugged in.
