How Do You Know When it's Time for a New Vacuum Cleaner?
Vacuum cleaners have a way of telling you that they are getting old, worn and in need of replacement. One indication is noise level. If a machine is noticeably louder than it once was, this can be a sign that the components are beginning to wear.
If you notice tiny particles of dust in the air as soon as the machine is turned on, this can be a sign of problems with the filtration system or with the casing of the machine, indicating wear on the machine.
While your vacuum cleaner may still be repairable, because of the cost factor, you have to decide if it is better to service or replace the machine.
