How It Works:

This product can also be used for more than cleaning. You can use it to inflate balloons, mattresses, air beds and so much more! Sometimes you can also use it to suck up small items like coins or other objects. Make sure to always be careful when sucking up items so that you don’t accidentally suck up something that might be dangerous.
How to use it:
Before you can start using it, you have to make sure that the bag has been properly attached. Put the bag around the compartment where it snaps into place. The mouth of the bag should be a little bit wider than the opening where you will be placing items so that it is easier to suck everything up inside.
You then need to make sure that the filter is in place and ready to go. There is a special filter on the inside, which helps to trap all of the dust and debris that you are trying to suck up. Sometimes there might be more than one filter so you will need to check.
The hose should be pretty easy to place into the area where you want to clean. There is also an option available where the hose can be stored on the unit itself so it isn’t just left lying around.
You then need to plug it into an electrical socket. You are able to turn the unit on and off by pressing the button on top of the handle.
Your vacuum should be ready for you to use now!
You are going to want to clean your vacuum at the very least once a week so that it can continue to work properly. If you don’t clean it enough, it isn’t going to work as well and will lose suction.
Disconnect the hose from the inlet and the outlet and then detach the exhaust tube.
Detach the filter by unscrewing it from the compartment. Check if it needs to be replaced and if so, replace it with a new one. This will help to capture any remaining debris that wasn’t sucked up before.
Wash all of these parts in warm water. Let them dry off before reassembling everything.
You can also give the exterior of the unit a quick wipe with a damp cloth, but make sure that all parts are disconnected first.
How it’s Made:
This product is mainly made out of durable plastic. The main section is mostly made out of this material, however there are other parts as well. The hose is made out of a flexible plastic material that can easily be bent in half or twisted without being damaged. The main part of the unit is quite large and requires a lot of suction power to run properly. You will notice that when you start using it, the motor gets louder as it is working harder.
The filter is made out of a very fine gauze-like material that is designed to catch all of the debris and dust that you are trying to suck up. It is very important that you replace this before using the unit again. It is stored in a little compartment that is located at the bottom of the product.
There is also an exhaust tube to release all of the hot air coming out of the motor. This part is quite important as well since if it wasn’t there, then you wouldn’t be able to use the product indoors due to the buildup of heat and bad smells.
The last part is the hose and it is made out of a rubbery material that is very flexible and can easily be bent in half or rolled up without being damaged. It is connected to the bottom of the main unit.
The power cord is also made out of plastic and has a relatively large capacity for holding all of the wires inside of it. The product itself only uses electricity when it is turned on and plugged in.
The designers of the product had to make sure that it could handle a lot of weight when it was attached to an upright vacuum. It is also able to be cleaned with just soap and water which makes the maintenance process much easier.
Who Uses It:
The market for this product is mainly for people that own an upright vacuum cleaner. This accessory makes the cleaning process a lot easier and quicker so that you are able to finish other tasks. It is also good for people who have a lot of area rugs since it prevents the loss of suction due to all of the air flow barriers.
Since it requires an upright vacuum to function, this product is mainly used in households and is not very mobile.
