My brother-in-law called me last week for help finding a new vacuum cleaner to buy. His vacuum cleaner had died. He insisted that it died because of his wife and daughter's hair. i asked him how often he cleaned the brushroll off. He asked me what a brush roll was. Hmm. I think I can understand what happened to his other vacuum cleaner. If you want your vacuum cleaner to last, there is a little vacuum cleaner maintenance that will need to be done.
