Question about Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum
Since this is a 12 amp motor, it's going to have greater suction. You've got to consistently clean all 3 filters or you'll get clogs as the suction is lost.
If you or your husband don't like taking the entire vacuum apart so often, the alternative is clean it thoroughly once a month, including ALL the filters.
FYI, if you stick a garden hose in the vacuum hose, you'll have some of the worst mildew stink coming out of it that it will be unusable for quite some time.
If the hose clogs, you can get a $12.00 drain pipe cleaner used to try to unclog plumbing pipes and twist a coat hanger around the end piece and push it through the vacuum hose.
I just clean one up thoroughly and it works fine now.
Clog free=clean thoroughly
If your rugs are really, really dirty, you'll need to clean it after one pass through all your rugs.
