The Vacuum cleaner is probably the most expensive tool a site team operative uses on a daily basis.
This tool is often abused and seen as a disposable item.
With the current cost of a standard Sebo BS36 Comfort being £239 + VAT it is not a cheap disposable item.
I have often seen Sebo’s abandoned in storage cupboards that have been decommissioned due to faults that can be easily and cheaply rectified.
Faults such as:-
- Power cables broken
- Plugs broken (moulded types)
- Handles broken
- Casing broken
- Knocking noises
- Burning smells
Or with reoccurring faults such as:-
- Motors cutting in and out when the extension hose is inserted
- Amber light on the brush head unit
- Flashing bag full warning light (even after new bag fitted)
- Brush to floor contact warning light
- Power switch in operational
Every single part of a Sebo Vacuum cleaner is available off the shelf and with a regular maintenance schedule a Sebo unit should give many years of service.
On occasions when parts such as motors or PCB (printed circuit boards) are required it may be prudent to consider a new vacuum.
However all the parts are interchangeable and an old vacuum can be used as a donor machine.
