How often do you empty your vacuum?

You will probably be like most people who don't actively empty the dust container. Instead, wait until the dust in the dust container reaches the fill line or overflows the bag before remembering to clean it. If you do this every time, something bad will happen. Assuming you want to keep your vacuum at peak performance, or give you the best cleaning experience, then you should empty the dust container frequently.

What happens if the dust container is not cleaned regularly?

Dust and dirt can build up over time if you don't clean it for a long time. Too much buildup can clog its filter, which can cause the motor to overheat. Also, if you don't clean it for a long time, the vacuum can get heavy. It can also become a hassle if you push it around, and it can become a little difficult to clean the floor. If you understand these reasons, you know how important it is to empty your vacuum.

How to clean your dust collection container?

Depending on how often you use it, determine how often you should empty the dust container. Some vacuum cleaners now have some Indicator light on them. It can tell you when the dust box is full and when it needs to be emptied.

If you are a bagged vacuum cleaner, then you need to replace the vacuum bag in time. If you are a bagless vacuum, it is important to empty the dust collection tank after each use. After the dust is disposed of, you can rinse the jar itself with clean water. Also take out the filter in the dust collection container for cleaning, remember that only clean water can be used for cleaning. Dry it before reassembling it. Otherwise, a wet dust collection container can cause bacteria to grow inside the vacuum cleaner.


How often you empty your vacuum depends on how often you use it. If you use it every day, you need to empty it at least once a week. But if you don't use it very often, then once every two weeks is enough. But if you have pets at home, you need to empty your dust container more often.
