How to repair vacuum hose leakage?

One of the common problems with vacuum cleaners is a leaking vacuum hose. If the hose leaks, the vacuum will not be able to effectively collect dust and debris. This may keep your home from being cleaned well and you will be annoyed. Usually the damage to the hose will be small and may not be easy to spot.
