How to unclog a vacuum cleaner hose

My vacuum cleaner is clogged. What should I do?

If you need to unclog your vacuum cleaner hose, please check to see if something has become jammed in the vacuum cleaner hose. It’s often easier said than done as the vacuum cleaner hose is quite long. Try to detach it and look through it. Still can’t? Then try pushing a broom handle through the hose. This will usually clear the clogged vacuum cleaner hose.

If that doesn’t help, please get in touch with us. You can reach us around the clock, 7 days a week on our customer service number 01450 2655. We’ll be happy to help if your vacuum cleaner is clogged.
