News: CARPET POWDER CAN KILL... a Vacuum Cleaner

Article Date(s):09/28/2016

Old-time vacuums ( which are still sold new ) could handle carpet powder much better than most new ones –  When carpet powder gets in the pores of your filters or bag, it cuts off airflow, which makes the motor run hot as it tries to get air. Heat + plastic equal a melted vacuum, and/or a burned up motor. If the vacuum is bagless, the problem is much more pronounced, as you keep the same filters in for a long time, & changing them more frequently is cost-prohibitive. P.S. – since carpet powder is so fine, it can’t be too good to breathe in either, and if your vacuum isn’t removing it, you are doing just that.
