How to Clean a Water Based Air Purifier

In this video, Kyle teaches us how to easily clean almost any water-based air purifier!

 

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your machine.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your machine, please don’t hesitate to contact us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 

 

Instructions

 

For our demonstration, we’ll be using a Prolux water-based air purifier.

 

As you can see, the bowl has a lot of hard water on the inside.

 

We’re going to submerge the bowl in a bucket of hot water. If you’re at home you can use a sink.

 

Once it is completely submerged you’re going to add a cup of distilled white vinegar and let it soak for 30 minutes.

 

After 30 minutes you can remove the bowl and wipe it down. You can rinse it with water if you’d like, but it’s not necessary. It should look pretty much brand new!

 

Here’s another trick to cleaning not only the bowl, but the underside of the motor. Fill the bowl to the fill line with a mix of warm water and vinegar. The put the top portion back on.

 

Then plug it in and let it run for about 12 hours. Then, just empty the water bowl and wipe everything down!

How to Clean a Brush Roll

Sometimes, when vacuum cleaners start to lose suction or just aren’t picking up as well it’s because the brush roll has too much hair wrapped around it. It is a good idea to regularly check your vacuum’s brush roll and remove hair as it builds up.

In this video, we show you how to clean almost any brush roll using our amazing technique!

 

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your vacuum.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your vacuum, please don’t hesitate to contact us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 

Instructions

 

In this video we show two different brush rolls – one from a Kirby vacuum cleaner and the other from a Rainbow. They both have quite a bit of hair wrapped around them and we’ll be using a straight razor to remove it. A hook blade works best, but for this demonstration we’re using a straight one.

 

Remember: never cut toward yourself! Just take your blade and cut the hair away from yourself. It may take a few passes to get all of the hair.

 

When you’ve cut through the hairs you can start grabbing handfuls and pull it from the brushes.

 

For the Kirby brush we’ll demonstrate a new specialty tool, which will be available on our website soon. It was designed to remove hair from brush rolls!

 

To use it, just slide the hook under the hair and slide it along the surface of the brush roll. As you do, the hook will catch the hairs and the blade will cut through them.

 

Same as above – as you cut through clumps of hair you’ll be able to pull it from the brushes and discard.

How to Attach A Tool Caddy to A Central Vacuum Wand 

When you purchase a new Central Vacuum Tool Kit, the number of tools and attachments can be overwhelming. In this video Kyle demonstrates how to attach and use the 3-Peg Tool Caddy.

 

 

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your vacuum.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your machine, please don’t hesitate to contact us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 

  

Instructions

 

This process work for either the GV or Prolux central hose kit. We will start the process by demonstrating it on the wand. You’ll notice two things: your wand has a button lock and none of your tools have a hole to accept this button lock. It’s okay, because the tools are friction fit and will still fit on the end of the wand. All you need to do is slide the tool on while pushing down the button lock.

 

The hose works the same way – just slide the tool on the end while pushing down the button lock and friction will keep it in place.

 

To attach the tool caddy to the extendable wand start by extended it out.

 

Take the tool caddy and firmly push it onto the wand. You’re done!
