Suction is one of the most important features to look for when you’re shopping for a vacuum cleaner.
Unfortunately, though, many vacuums will lose suction as you clean - either due to the amount of dirt in the bag/bin, or due to loss of power with some cordless models.
Here we explore some of our most popular vacuum cleaners with *no loss of suction, allowing you to clean your home without worrying about a drop in power!
Why has my vacuum cleaner lost suction?
There are a number of reasons why you might experience your vacuum losing suction. These include:
Your bag/bin is too full
As the bag/bin on your vacuum fills up, you may feel performance drop as a result. The easiest way to solve this is to empty your bin, or replace your bag, and check that power returns to normal.
Power supply issues
With some cordless vacuums, suction power may drop as the battery loses charge. This means your vacuum will need to be returned to its charging cord/station.
Your filter needs replacing
Some vacuums contain filters that help to trap fine dust, particles, and allergens in your home. These filters can become clogged, which may lead to a loss of suction in your vacuum cleaner. If you experience this, then the filter will need cleaning or replacing.
Your vacuum hose is jammed
When debris get caught in your vacuum hose, the cleaner itself may lose suction as a result. Check that there are no large objects or dirt buildups in your hose.
