Safely store tools
Clip accessories onto the storage posts on the side of the vacuum, so you've always got them to hand.
Wash the filter regularly
Rinse under a cold tap until the water runs clear – you don't need any detergents. Leave to dry fully (at least 24 hours) before refitting.
Don't overfill it
Keep one eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker to maintain suction.
