Vacuum cleaners pick up a lot of dust and dirt. Even though you work your hardest to maintain and clean your vacuum, there may come a time when it begins to smell really bad. When this happens, it might be time to deodorize your vacuum cleaner. There are homemade solutions as well as store-bought ones. Either way, you should check any warnings or instructions before using a vacuum cleaner deodorizer.
Type of Vacuum
Vacuums are meant to pick up messes, not create them! Old-school bagged vacuums can be smelly and messy, and can trap odors rather than remove them.
Depending on the type of vacuum, the likeliness of smells might be lowered. Water based vacuums are a safe bet for removing odors from your home rather than adding them. However, no vacuum is odor-free and you will need a vacuum cleaner deodorizer to keep your vacuum fresh and clean. Whether the vacuum cleaner is bagged or bagless, you will need to deodorize it at some point.
No Need For Standard Filters
The vacuum cleaner filter is one of the dirtiest parts of any vacuum. Replacing it is also unfortunately sometimes forgotten by customers. This causes the filter to get clogged with pet hair, dirt, dust, and stinky particles.
If you do regularly replace the filter and it smells but it is not time to change it, some vacuums have washable filters that you can wash instead of totally replacing.
To wash a filter you need to prepare a gentle solution from soapy, warm water and then wash and rinse the filter. The filter needs to be left to dry for one to two days before you can place it back in the vacuum.
While you can clean the filter, it’s much easier to buy a vacuum cleaner that has deodorizing capabilities such as the Sirena vacuum cleaner. It can easily be used to deodorize the air when our liquid Ocean Breeze deodorizer is added to the water before vacuuming. You can also get this benefit when using the Sirena’s air purification function. It will freshen the air and keep the vacuum cleaner smelling pleasant at all times.
Avoid Unpleasant Smells Caused by Attachments
Attachments, especially rotating power attachments can get clogged when vacuuming carpets and rugs. You should routinely check the power attachments to ensure that fur and hair did not get stuck in a ball or that there is no caked-on dust. This can all contribute to vacuum smells.
To clean this, you will need to get a pair of tiny scissors and cut through any hair or fibers. Next, you will need to make sure that there is not anything stuck in the vacuum tube.
With a Sirena vacuum cleaner, there is very little chance of clogging since all the debris picked up collects in the water basin. You can easily pour this basin outside when it gets full. That said, cleaning the roller brush inside the power nozzle is still necessary.
Vacuum Cleaner Deodorizer From Sirena
Once you have thoroughly cleaned your vacuum it is time to add a little vacuum cleaner deodorizer. Adding a fresh scent or deodorizer (such as our ocean breeze deodorizer) helps to keep the air in your home smelling nice and not stinky.
