Your vacuum, like your clothes dryer drum or anything that spins, relies on belts. If your belts
are old and have not been changed for years, they are in danger of snapping at any moment. While this is generally not dangerous, the beater bar will not function without belts, so your vacuum may be out of commission until these broken parts are replaced. Made essentially of rubber, vacuum belts become worn and stretched over time, losing efficiency and turning the bar more slowly, resulting in rugs that are less clean. Even if your belts are still functioning, they may be working at a seriously diminished capacity. If you are not sure if your belts need replacing, bring your vacuum into any of our locations, and our friendly staff members can help you determine if you need new belts and what kind you need for your model vacuum.
