Vacuum repair is repairing America

In a time where the economy is slowly on the rebound, and large production assembly jobs are shipped overseas, the vacuum industry is bringing it home! American Companies like Oreck, Hoover and lesser-known Riccar all have manufacturing plants in America. Additionally, Swedish-owned company, Eureka and Sear’s Kenmore (owned by Japanese company, Panasonic) all manufacture in the states. The beauty of buying American-made products is that you are making an investment in yourself and the economy by keeping profits and jobs at home.

Riccar is based in California and has its main manufacturing facility is in Missouri, but it wasn’t always that way. In 2003, the company made the commonly unpopular decision to move manufacturing from Taiwan to the states. The organization prides itself on selling world-class vacuums with an emphasis on quality over quantity. Riccar vacuums are only sold through Authorized Retailers, each of which the company has vetted and found that they hold up to the standards of excellent service and ethics. The company does use some parts imported from China, but every box comes with a large “Made in USA with globally-sourced components,” and each vacuum is assembled here.

In 1908, the first upright vacuum was invented in Canton, OH by a cousin of the Hoover family. Hoover, which is owned by Maytag, was started in Ohio and continues to thrive there today. In 2007, they ran with the marketing campaign, “America loves its Hoovers.” Three of their five plants are still in Ohio, one is located in El Paso, TX, and admittedly, they do have a plant in Mexico, so be sure to check your labels to make sure you’re Hoover is made in the USA!

Although we have left the era of door-to-door vacuum salesmen, there is still a thriving business for vacuum service and repair here in the United States. Many companies will offer a 5-7 year warranty on their products, but after that, consumers are on their own. No one wants to buy a new vacuum every seven years, so you do not have to look far to find a vacuum service shop.

All Ray’s Vacuums, a family-oriented company located in Denver, CO, is a multi-service vacuum repair and sewing machine repair shop where “Service Still Counts!” With over 40 years of experience, All Rays Vacuums is dedicated to providing the highest level of vacuum sales and repairs.

Vacuum-oriented websites suggest getting your product serviced or repaired before buying a new one. Many shops will fix your vacuum, even if it isn’t american made, which saves you a significant chunk of change that you would spend on a new one, and also keeps local small businesses working. Additionally, at vacuum stores you can often by used or refurbished vacuums, including premium products like Dyson! So even if the Dyson isn’t America-made, you can still get your hands on one and feel good about re-investing money locally.

I need to take my vacuum to get repaired

vacuum repair

I have a very long “to do” list of things I need to get done before I leave for my teaching abroad adventure. It is a teacher exchange program so I will be going to live in England in another teacher’s home and they will be coming to live in mine. For that reason I am going through my house with a fine toothed comb to see what things I could improve on and what things need to be removed or replaced. One thing I’ve noticed while doing my final run of cleaning is that the vacuum cleaner is broken. So, seeing as I know nothing about repairing a vacuum cleaner and I don’t have any mechanical ability whatsoever, I need to call a vacuum repair store and have them come and help me out. I don’t know if they  make house calls but if they did that would be amazing because my car isn’t running so well at the moment either.

I just don’t want to leave the incoming teacher without a means to clean up the place when she feels fit. I have loaded a bunch of other cleaning supplies into a plastic bin under the sink so she will have convenient access to them whenever she needs them. I just can’t forget to take care of this vacuum repair before I get too busy and it slips away from me. The last time I did that I forgot to clean out the oven before Thanksgiving and it turned out to be a mess.

Vacuum cleaner revenge

It is not normal for families who do not live together to have weekly dinners but that is exactly what my family does. Every week it is some twisted mess that no one is particularly excited about but neither is anyone particularly damaged by the events. At least so far no one has been forced to begin therapy. The big spill of last weeks dinner was my sister’s husband making some stupid, sexist remark about how he was going to buy her a vacuum cleaner for Christmas. Vacuum cleanerIt wasn’t so much what he said exactly but rather how he said it. It was laced with connotations of a woman’s place in the home type of thing. With Christmas coming up fairly soon I figured instead of blowing up at him at the table like I wanted to, I would start in with some planning to make my point in a bigger, and hopefully funnier way. So a few days later I went down to the vacuum store and searched for admittedly too long trying to find the perfect vacuum cleaner to fit my brother-in-law. It has been such a long time since I had bought a vacuum cleaner that honestly I forgot just how many options there are. Finally, I decided that since this is more of a prank gift than anything, the functions don’t so much matter so I just found the ugliest one I possibly could.  Now it is wrapped under the Christmas tree just waiting for my sexist brother-in-law. Hopefully now he will think more before he disrespects my sister.

Is it worth taking your old vacuum to a vacuum cleaner repair shop?

I had a sewing machine that I was getting fixed and so I took it to my local sewing machine/vacuum store.  There are not very many of those around anymore.  I had been having problems with my sewing machine for a long time and decided to take it in.  I did not realize how bad it was until I started sewing with it again.  It was amazing how much better it worked.  While waiting for my sewing machine I was talking to them about my vacuum cleaner as well and they mentioned how important it is to keep that maintained.  vacuum cleaner repairSo in the next couple of months I took my vacuum cleaner in to be serviced by a professional technician.  WOW!  I didn’t realize how bad it was working.  I have to be so careful now.  It sucks up everything that gets too close.  It’s wonderful and amazing!!  I can’t say enough about it.  I use my vacuum cleaner a lot more than my sewing machine.  I just always figured that after you had used a vacuum for a certain amount of time and it started not working very well you would get rid of it and get a new one.  Not this time.  It wasn’t that expensive and it works just like new, maybe even better than new.  So glad I took the time to get it serviced at a nearby vacuum cleaner repair shop.  It’s made the entire difference in the world with cleaning the carpets and how clean they are.

A Dyson For Christmas

Dyson vacuums DenverSally Robertson had a strange request for Christmas last year. She implored her husband, Tom, to get the one of the Dyson vacuums in Denver she’d seen when she was in the city. The vacuum cleaners have a great reputation for quality, and the store she visited downtown was having a great sale on some of the older models. Sally knew it was a great opportunity and began dropping hints immediately. Tom may have seemed oblivious to everything, but he had already picked up one of the vacuums when she first mentioned it to him. He hated Christmas shopping and was happy have it out of the way.

You wouldn’t think people would get excited about a vacuum cleaner, but with a Dyson it’s more common than you probably realize. When Sally unwrapped her Dyson on Christmas more, she flipped out. She was so excited that she ignored the rest of her presents and started vacuuming the house! Talk about excited. Tom had to yell at her to get her to turn the vacuum off and join the family to open the rest of the presents.

As you can see, people get pretty serious about their vacuum cleaners. With a Dyson, at least it makes a little bit of sense. They are truly great cleaning machines, fit for any mess. There are very versatile too, since you can use them to vacuum almost any surface. If you’re like Sally, you probably already know all about them. Why not start saving a few extra dollars now and buy ones as soon as possible. It’s a quality investment.
