Again, it all starts with prevention. You may start to notice a theme on my blog! Before we talk about how to maintain, we need to talk about the right machine for the right job.
The first thing to consider: Is this a vacuum cleaner that is easy for me to use? If it is not, you will use it much less often, making it work harder and therefore, causing more problems or wear. The second thing to consider if what, how much you have to clean and how often you will be using the vacuum cleaner. Warranties are also different, according to how you use a machine. You may think that "commercial machine" can work harder and it can, but sometimes has a shorter warranty period. So, do your research, or, better yet, talk to a vacuum expert at a vacuum shop. Then you can get the machine in your hands and see how it feels.
Once you've decided on your machine, find out what maintenance is recommended. Do you need to change, clean, wash the filters? How often do you need to have it serviced? How do you know when it needs a belt change? Buying something that fits your lifestyle and that you know how to maintain, will protect your investment.
