Whether you are a homeowner or a business owner, routine cleaning can add some wear and tear to your vacuum over the years. When something breaks you are usually left with two options. Do you get it repaired or do you get it replaced. Here at Vacuum City we want to provide a brief guide on repair vs replacement costs and which we recommend. Obviously, every unique situation is different. If you have specific questions about your vacuum cleaner we would love to talk with you in person or over the phone. We service Oreck, Bissell, and Miele vacuum cleaners.
What Is The Value Of Your Vacuum
The most general rule of thumb in the repair vs replace question is simple cost comparison. Will it cost you more to repair or replace your vacuum? A good way of looking at this is you should never pay for repairs that cost more than half what you spend on your vacuum cleaner. If you bought a vacuum for $200, you should consider getting a new vacuum if the repair service costs more than $100. However, there are other factors to consider.
How Long Have You Been Using Your Vacuum?
Just like with a car or a phone, the longer you have had your vacuum the more likely you should consider replacing it. As your vacuum ages, issues and damage will accrue over time. You might be able to get a replacement part for a relatively good price, but if your vacuum is gonna fall apart in a month, it might not be worth it.
What Condition Is Your Vacuum In?
Not all vacuum brands are equal in quality. More durable models can successfully last years without showing signs of damage, while some cheaper knock-offs can take damage quickly. If you notice a lot of issues with your vacuum, it might not be worth getting the repairs. While repairs might be able to hold it together for a few more months or years, you should consider investing in a long-lasting durable vacuum.
Are You Satisfied With Your Vacuum?
Another thing to consider is; do you enjoy using your vacuum. Are you lugging around a heavy vacuum, is your vacuum is versatile, or does it only do one thing? A big reason to get a new vacuum is to upgrade. You might find a better model that is more maneuverable, has a better cleaning path or has attachments that make it multi-use. If your current vacuum frustrates you, consider getting a new one.
