Regular maintenance of your vacuum cleaning can be extremely helpful in extending its useable life. There are many easy steps to take to maintain your vacuum at optimal performance, none of which involve bringing your machine to a repair man for expensive servicing. Whether you have a canister, upright or even a stick vacuum, taking care of your cleaner is the best way to avoid costly repairs in the future. Yearly maintenance of your vacuum does not have to be expensive or even difficult though, simply replacing the belt and filter in your machine can be extremely helpful in the long run.
Locating and replacing your vacuum cleaner belt:
The belt is located in various places on different vacuum cleaners. On a canister vacuum, the belt will be located in the power nozzle. To access the belt, you'll need to either unscrew the bottom or top of the base of the vacuum, depending on your machine. From there you will locate the belt and swap it out using leverage from the brushroll to pull the belt into place. On an upright vacuum, the belt will be located at the base of the vacuum. Once again, you'll have to unscrew either the top or bottom of the base, depending on the make and model of your vacuum cleaner.
Locating and replacing the filter in your vacuum:
There are so many different makes and models of vacuum cleaners and the filter can be located in different places for each one. The filter in your vacuum cleaner can also have quite a few different looks and shapes. Most Eureka filters will be cylindrical with pleated filter media while Miele filters are usually rectangular with a plastic casing. To locate the filter in your vacuum, find where air is exhausted. For instance, an Electrolux Versatility's motor exhausts on the front of the vacuum, just above the base. Because of this, the HEPA filter is placed right in front of the motor exhaust to prevent particles from being released back into the air of your home.
In order to ensure that you replace your filter with the correct new filter, locate the model number before contacting a sales representative.
Finding the correct model number of your vacuum will ensure that you always buy the correct replacement parts which will eliminate the hassle and inconvenience of returns. Replacing belts and filters regularly will also ensure that your vacuum cleaner is always running at peak performance to ensure a clean and healthy home.

The Perfect canister is the same body as the classic style Electrolux metal canister. The wide 15" power nozzle is great for pet hair. It also comes with an eletronic circuit breaker, if something is vacuumed up in to the power head such as a sock, the power head will automatically turn off, to prevent the belt from breaking.
