Can a vacuum cleaner hurt you?

Vacuum cleaners make the cleaning process easy and can save you a lot of time. However, if used improperly, some dangerous accidents may occur. There are also a small number of people who do not know how to use the vacuum cleaner correctly, which may lead to some dangers. If used improperly, major safety accidents such as electric shock, fall and fire may occur. So what accidents can vacuum cleaners cause? How to prevent it?


If it is a vacuum cleaner with a power cord, it may cause you to fall to some extent. If you accidentally trip over the power cord, then this is a very dangerous thing. To avoid this, you need to pay attention to the location of the power cord when using it. And after cleaning, store it safely and organize the power cord.

Electric shock

As we all know, ordinary vacuum cleaners can only vacuum dry objects. For example, water and other liquids cannot be vacuumed in ordinary vacuum cleaners. If you want to vacuum liquids, then you can choose to buy a wet and dry vacuum cleaner, which also has many benefits. If you want to use a normal vacuum cleaner to vacuum liquids, you will face the risk of electric shock.

On fire

Fires exist in any electronic device, and vacuum cleaners are no exception. If you use your vacuum cleaner properly, there will be no problems to a large extent. But overheating and clogging of the vacuum cleaner can pose a risk of fire. If you don't clean it regularly, dust and debris can build up inside the vacuum cleaner, which can increase the temperature inside the machine.

Prolonged operation of the vacuum cleaner can overheat the motor, and a clogged filter can overwork the motor. When the vacuum cleaner overheats, the risk of fire reappears.

When cleaning your car or garage, be aware of flammable liquids around you. Turn on your vacuum when you make sure there are no liquids or flammable particles around.
