Tips For Using The Wet-Dry Shop

Wet-dry shop vacuums are a reasonably common household item, but most users do not know how to use it effectively, sometimes when misused, it is easy to cause a motor fire. The article summarizes the usage tips as well as shows the illegal use to avoid damage to the device.

Do not wait for the dust container to be full

Although some vacuum cleaners have a “dust bag inspection” indicator, you should check and replace the new dust bag yourself (new wet-dry shop vacuum using the dust bag) or take it out (with the machine using a box) when it is found to be about 3/4 full. This will help the wet-dry shop vacuum more efficient, more power-efficient, and more durable because it will not have to exert effort when vacuuming. You can verify this: when the dust bag is full, the air in the machine is hard to circulate, and the device is hot. Using a bagless vacuum cleaner is easier to clean than a bag type.

Pay attention to clean the dust filter regularly

You will not adequately remove dust particles as well as dirt if the dust filter is clogged with dirt. You do not need to change filters as often as with dust filters but require frequent cleaning.

Some wet-dry shop vacuums use disposable filters, meaning that when the screen is dirty or torn, you will have to change another. The reusable filter, you can wash it with warm water mixed with some dishwashing liquid to remove dirt and film.

It would help if you bought the machine that comes with a HEPA filter or S-class filter. This type of filter has a high antibacterial effect and has excellent dust filtration quality, limiting dust back to the environment.

Proper use of different nozzles in different suction areas

Usually, the wet-dry shop vacuum comes with a set of suction heads, so you should change the nose to suit the location where you are vacuuming. Most vacuum cleaners have a combined floor suction table, which allows vacuuming on hard floors or carpets, press the pegs on the suction table to select the appropriate suction mode. See the notation on the floor suction table for the suction mode to use: when sucking hard floors, the fibers of the brush will be extended on the back of the suction table, which will shorten when vacuuming.

Small brush-shaped nozzle often used to vacuum the corners and walls, on items such as bookshelves, TV shelves. You can also use this nozzle to remove dust from the wall.

Another nozzle with a narrow tube format can also be used to suck openings or tight places where suction tables cannot be inserted. This nozzle can also be used to suck hard objects but take care not to pick up large, sharp objects.

Note that always turn off the machine before replacing the nozzle.

Collect the power cord properly

Wet-dry shop vacuums usually have quite long electrical coils so that users can easily pull the machine away from the electrical outlet. When using the device, you should unplug all the wires. If left in the engine will cause heat for both the motor and the cord. When retracting the cable, you do take care to hold the short piece of string with your hand and press the button for the receiver to slowly, to avoid having holes.

Do not use the wet-dry shop vacuum for more than 2 hours

Every time you smoke, you should only turn on the machine for 3-4 minutes, turn off the computer for a while, and then turn on again to avoid continuous smoking. Doing so will cause the motor of the device to overheat, resulting in an electrical leak. In the process of vacuuming, seeing signs of vacuum nozzle clogged should disconnect the power, disassemble the nose, clean, and then clean the machine to continue.

Do not use the vacuum cleaner malfunction

You do not abuse the features of the vacuum cleaner, but use heavy vacuums such as gravel, wet concrete pebbles will clog the straw, making the machine inoperable, so long longer susceptible to fire. As well, you do not use a wet-dry shop vacuum that often comes out to suck mud or liquid.

Vacuum cleaners have a small capacity, so you can only vacuum in an area, some machines only vacuum dry, also want to suck up the liquid on the floor you have to buy a wet-dry shop vacuum with both dry and wet. If the dry vacuum cleaner costs from 1.5 to 3.5 million VND / unit, the dry-wet vacuum cleaner costs from 3.3-18 million VND / unit.

Choose a wet-dry shop vacuum with a large suction capacity

When buying a vacuum cleaner, you should be aware of the suction capacity of the machine. Most electronics stores usually only record the power consumption, not the suction power. For families with a moderate area only used to vacuum regularly, you can choose machines with a capacity of 1000W – 1600W. For houses with a larger area, the selection that selects the power of the device ranging from 1800W – 2200W. Primarily, you should also test your suction power before buying. We should pick a tool with a suction capacity of 300W or more.

Limit dust to the house

To limit the amount of dust that gets into your home, you do place a doormat at the entrance of your home and change it often. Separate indoor slippers should be used on each floor; do not wear a pair of sandals throughout the stories because it will collect dust and dirt from one area to another. Moreover, it would help if you vacuumed furniture, drapes, and windowsills regularly.

Schedule a wet-dry shop vacuum

A weekly vacuum schedule is required for the entire house. Areas where many people have gone frequently access and common space more often. If you have pets, such as cats and dogs, you must vacuum daily. It would be best if you used a combination of a handheld vacuum and a regular vacuum. The handheld vacuum cleaner will help you quickly and easily clean in areas that need daily cleaning. Otherwise, you will be very “afraid” to remove the vacuum cleaner. The large-capacity vacuum cleaner will be used weekly or every two weeks to vacuum the entire house.

Handling stains before smoking, do not sweep on small objects

With stains sticking to it, you have to use a brush to clean it. If you want to sweep in any minute, fragile items, do not use a machine with a large capacity, because it can roll small objects into the machine. When the engine runs, it will create a breeze, if vacuuming clinging to electrical circuits or computers, piano, organ … you do not let the nozzle touch the machine.

In conclusion

Above, I have introduced you to some tips on how to use the vacuum cleaner to make it durable, beautiful, and most effective. Also, I show you how to preserve the vacuum during use. Hopefully, through this article, you will gain more useful experience for using a wet-dry shop vacuum in your work.

ENCHANTING WINTER STYLED SHOOT

As snow softly falls from above, the beauty of winter captivates our souls. The kiss of the cold ignites goosebumps on our skin and the light reflecting off of the white dances a little differently. There’s an undeniable aura of romance that the season provides, and this enchanting styled shoot, captured by Behind the Sea Photography, beautifully marries the wonder of a wedding with the majesty of wintertime.

“For this shoot, we set out to create a warm and moody indoor environment that would lend itself to a intimate winter gathering. Lush florals by Jordan Moll topped off the style with a rich, moody color palette of crimson, berry hues, gold, and a touch of dusty blue.

The Summit at Snoqualmie gave our series a final, dreamy touch as the light snowfall highlighted an original gown by Phuong Minh Nguyen and a sparkling headpiece by Melinda Rose Design.”

MELINA AND MATT’S OREGON ENGAGEMENT

The promise of a new year is exciting, but what’s even more thrilling is the promise of sharing a lifetime of new years with the one you love. To celebrate their engagement, high school sweethearts Matt and Melina took to the charming riverside in Wilsonville, Oregon.

The two of them grew up together, sharing a journey from their prom nine years ago to their beachfront proposal in Cabo. Their portrait session pays tribute to the place that holds some of their favorite memories, from fishing to boating to relaxing with family.

What’s so special about photographs is that they never change, and Jamie Rae Photo beautifully captured Matt and Melina’s effortless connection. Their portraits are real, romantic moments that will stay constant, just like they have been for one another:

“Over the course of our relationship, we have experienced wonderful times along with incredible loss. Broken relationships in our families, people we care about struggling with addiction, and death of loved ones to name a few. We have been a constant in each others’ life within the chaos it has brought at times.I am so thankful that I have found someone who is the first person I want to celebrate with on happy days and cry with on sad. He is my family. ”

KAYLA AND CORBIN’S BELLINGHAM WEDDING

Some might call Kayla and Corbin’s first encounter a lucky strike, as they first met eyes in a bowling alley in high school. “When I first saw Corbin, , he was a mystery and a breath of fresh air. He had a charismatic smile and a friendly demeanor about him, so when he walked into the bowling alley I was immediately drawn to him.” The two started dating their sophomore year – a result of a distracting text message in the middle of a test. Their first official date was the classic combination of dinner and a movie, but Kayla couldn’t tell you much about the plot. Instead, all she could think about was when he was going to make the move.

Over the years, the two had the pleasure of growing up and growing together. “There wasn’t ever this goal to be married. We just enjoyed being together, so we traveled, moved in together, went to college, shared a similar work ethic, and continued to grow as individuals but within our relationship. We just knew we loved each other and wanted to journey through life with one another.” Kayla shares. It was on their eight year anniversary that Corbin popped the exciting question. Enlisting the help of Kayla’s boss to encourage her to take off work, Corbin orchestrated a day trip with friends to Fort Worden. Though there were plenty of signs that something special was going on (from seeing Corbin’s parents to noticing a video cord), it took a suggestion from friends to pose for a picture for Kayla to catch on. Corbin then led with, “It’s not really a coincidence that everyone is here today,” and Kayla’s heart beat began to quicken. He asked her the big question, and it took a while for it to sink in. “It was absolutely surreal actually being in that moment. I couldn’t imagine spending my life with anyone else, and I’m lucky to have found such a fun, loving, easy-going partner to tackle a marriage with.”

Courtney Bowlden was there to beautifully capture their Bellingham wedding that was brimming with joy. Their ceremony was the most memorable factor of the day.  “I rarely took my eyes off his face the entire ceremony, but occasionally I would look over at our officiant and directly behind her was this beautiful windowed dome. We had started our ceremony shortly after the sun set, so I could see a softened reflection of the audience in the windows.” Kayla shares. Being surrounded by loved ones to celebrate the start to “officially forever” made their wedding unforgettable.

KENDAL AND MITCH’S BACKYARD WEDDING

They say that love is blind, and blind was exactly what Kendal and Mitch’s first date happened to be. With a great deal of encouraging by Mitch and Kendal’s best friends, a shy senior girl and a recently-graduated gentleman agreed to meet each other for a rather nerve-wracking first date. “My first impression of Mitch was how genuine and funny he was. I remember being so nervous to meet him for the first time. We spent our first date laughing the entire time.” Kendal shares. Mitch was also anxious , but once he laid eyes on her, all of his nerves seemed to dissipate.

Their first solo outing was an evening spent  along the Vancouver waterfront. The date turned out to be not only full of chemistry, but also a little friendly competition. The two played putt putt golf and a lively game of H.O.R.S.E. before Kendal decided to shoot for a first kiss. She scored, and after that, the ball was in Mitch’s court.

Once they began dating, the age-old “absence makes the heart grow fonder” saying proved to be true. The long distance that they experienced while away at college brought them closer to the realization that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with each other. When it came time for Mitch to officially state his desire, Kendal couldn’t have been more thrilled. “While I was in California, Mitch told me that the night I fly home, he was going to take me out for a date night. He made sure I knew to be dressed and ready as soon as my plane landed. He picked me up from the airport around 6:30pm and we went straight to dinner. After dinner, he told me we were going to watch a movie at his parents. Little did I know, he had set up the entire yard perfectly for the proposal. As soon as we got to the end of the driveway, I noticed a cute lit up pathway, and I instantly knew. The tears had already started flowing! The pathway ended in a gazebo with a table of pictures and a little black box. He then got down on one knee and asked if I would be his forever. This happened just in time for our family and a few close friends to come running outside after witnessing the whole thing. It was so amazing to have the people we care about the most with us witness this perfect proposal!”

Their rustic, backyard wedding was a testament to the natural ease of their relationship.”I wanted our day to be effortlessly fun, simple, and beautiful. I tried to keep things simple and ‘us.’” They also made sure to focus on fun, as they spend a great deal of their time together laughing. When Kendal saw her groom for the first time, she could hardly believe she wasn’t dreaming. “He looked more handsome than I could have ever imagined – what I could see between the tears, of course! I kept saying ‘Is this for real?’” Mitch was also in disbelief when he saw his beautiful bride. “In that moment, it was pure joy. An image I will never forget.”

One of the most special moments of their wedding day was when they took the time to step back and soak it all in. As they looked around the dance floor at all of their friends and family, they couldn’t help but agree that it had been an absolute dream wedding. Their  dream is only just beginning, too. “No matter what kind of day I have had, I always get to come home to Mitch.” Mitch agrees, sharing that the best part of marriage is being able to finish each day with his best friend.

KATIE AND KYLE’S SALMON LA SAC ENGAGEMENT

KATIE AND KYLE’S SALMON LA SAC ENGAGEMENT

IMG_0849

An engagement marks the beginning of the most beautiful journey, and there’s no better way to capture the spirit of traveling together than with a sweet exploration-inspired engagement shoot set in the beautiful surroundings of Salmon la Sac. From the sweet cabin-side shots to the adorable save the date map, the adventurous spirit of love fills each of the images captured by the talented Samantha McFarlen. As if that didn’t sound charming enough, the couple even brought along their dog as an additional guide.

Any time a couple wants to go on an adventure for their engagement session, I get really excited. Katie, Kyle and their dog met me, my husband and our dog out at the campground and we just took off into the woods, stopping at cool spots to take photos. We hit a few different locations, let the dogs play, and then had beers together at the world famous Brick Saloon in Roslyn. It’s cheesy, but I really enjoy my job because I get to share in these special times in my clients’ lives not only as their photographer but as their friend. Katie has such an amazing vision for her wedding and I can’t wait to photograph it in just 5 short months!” – Samantha McFarlen

 

LOCAL LOVE: PACIFIC NORTHWEST STYLED SHOOT

If you’ve ever questioned if the Northwest is truly best, this locally and sustainably sourced styled shoot by Lightworks360 Photography is sure to remind you why fell in love with the place you call home. We’ve got a lot to be proud of in the upper left, and collaborative talent that shines through these images is no exception. This Pacific Northwest styled shoot is rich with inspiration to make your wedding not only only a celebration of your love, but of all the creativity and beauty that the region radiates.

Learn more about the story behind this styled shoot:

Being born and raised in the incredible Pacific Northwest, with mountains as a headboard, the beach as a pillow, and the forest as a blanket… it makes a girl pretty spoiled. As I assembled my dream team for our end-of-season styled shoot this year, I had two strong visions: I ONLY wanted a locally-based, female-led team for our vendors, and I wanted to display as much of the crazy-beautiful variations on the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest.

 

We get a bad rap for only having rain, when really it’s a photographer’s paradise and a bride’s dream– there is so much creativity and spark flowing out of the upper left corner of the country!
From flower arranging to menu design, every aspect of the shoot was designed to point toward local, sustainable options couples have when planning a wedding in the greater Seattle area. This collaboration exclusively features sustainable products and services from female-owned local businesses.

The menu– with its focus on fresh oysters, wild berries and honey, local herbs and vegetables– is a study on sustainability and our love for keeping weddings as rooted in their own locality as possible. Even the drinks, with sparkling wine from Washington wine country and a unique gin distilled only five minutes from the shoot location, are delicious representations of what the Pacific Northwest is capable of.

The Pacific Northwest bride prioritizes personal style over big-box trends, and her wedding day is a chance for her to create a heartfelt, genuine experience that speaks to her personality as well as the incredible environment of the Pacific Northwest. Also, the women business-owners here are pretty incredible.

KARA AND RYAN’S SWEET SNOHOMISH WEDDING

No amount of rain could dampen the love and joy that filled Kara and Ryan’s Snohomish wedding at Thomas Family Farm. The images by Betty Globa Photography captured not only the darling details of the occasion, but the undeniable chemistry between the bride and groom. Once you read through their story, you’ll see why Kara and Ryan put the “sweet” in high school sweethearts.

It began with a question. Kara, who had barely spoken a word to the cute boy she believed to be “way too good for her,” had been somewhat forcefully convinced by her friends to ask Ryan to their tenth grade Tolo. Little did Kara know, Ryan had shared the same sentiment before she offered the invitation. “I thought she was way out of my league and that I didn’t have a chance!” The following night, Ryan asked Kara to sit next to her at their friend group’s outing to see Dear John, and feelings began to flourish.

“I know this seems crazy, but I was barely sixteen at the time and I knew then.” Kara shares. Six months into dating, the two of them agreed to share coffee and an important conversation. “I remember meeting at Starbucks and being so nervous to say out loud that I was in love with Kara,” says Ryan. “We both decided that our feelings were mutual and that we were in it for the long haul.” she adds.

Their proposal was nothing short of a dream, but it wasn’t without a fews bump in the road. “Ryan and I went to Europe with my sister and her husband for three weeks and the first country we went to was Norway. My sister and I are of Norwegian descent so we had planned to see our family’s farm in Sognfjord. It was several hours from Oslo so we took a bus, and long story short, everything went wrong. We arrived at 10:30 pm, we didn’t eat for over 36 hours, and “slept” outside in the rain on a park bench.” After they finally found some sustenance, they had more of an appetite for appreciating the beautiful country. That’s when the magic happened. “Ryan picked out the perfect spot, and asked to take a photo before we headed back into town. We were in a rush, so when Ryan started fiddling with his pocket I got a little impatient and told him he needed to hurry up… I immediately regretted it when I saw the tiny little Shane Co. bag. I was completely overwhelmed and shocked! He got down on one knee, talked about how long we have waited for this day, told me he loved me and asked me to be his forever. And of course I said “YES!” followed by an “I’m sorry I was a brat just before.” I still think about our proposal story and wonder how it was even real. It was better than anything I could have ever dreamt of as a little girl.”

While Ryan’s secret year-long proposal planning was the most romantic thing he’s ever done for her, Kara also provided Ryan with a year-long display of love. “Kara cut up 365 tiny pieces of paper by hand and wrote reasons she loves me on each and every one of them. She put them in the jar so that I could pull one out and read it each day for a year.”

Their wedding day was not only a celebration of their love, but of those who had been there along with them for the journey – their best friends were their bridesmaids and groomsmen and they were even married by their high school youth group pastor.

Both of them agreed on the first look as their favorite moment of their big day. “I about died when I saw how gorgeous Kara looked. I was honestly blown away. I had to step back and say, ‘Wow, I’m actually here getting married to my best friend.’”

Congratulations, Kara and Ryan!

JESSICA AND TOMMY’S ELEGANT WALLA WALLA WEDDING

Some time ago in the city of Pullman, two Washington State Cougars named Jessica and Tommy crossed paths. Despite having a few classes and a dorm building in common their freshman year, they didn’t truly to know each other until they were sophomores. “I thought she was the prettiest girl on campus, but the butterflies in my stomach made it hard for me to muscle up the courage to ask her out for a little while.”  Jessica’s shyness began to soften as she admired the gentlemanly ways of Tommy. “He held the door open for me every single time.”

Their first date was a little on the scary side, as they went to see A Nightmare on Elm Street. “I picked out the movie and it was a terrible choice…I found out later that Tommy hates scary movies. We were so awkward. It gives me the butterflies just thinking about it. ” Tommy was grateful to be getting a second chance after he’d thought he’d blown it. “We held hands like middle-schoolers,” he recalls.

Tommy was willing to sit through terror for Jessica, because he knew that she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with from the start. “I knew right away.  I could just tell.  I put that Randy Travis “Forever and Ever, Amen” song on repeat.  It took a while to propose only because I wanted it to be the right timing in both of our lives.” Jessica knew he was the one after she saw the space where Tommy lived. “He is very organized and keeps a bulletin board full of goals and quotes. One of his goals was to be a good dad. I thought it was cute. Then once I met his family it solidified it for me. I got the whole package!”

When it came to the wedding day, Tommy was surprised by his reaction to seeing his bride. “I would always bust my brother’s chops for crying when my sister-in-law started walking down the aisle. But when the doors opened up and I saw Jess, I felt like doing the same thing.” Jessica, though filled with nerves,  was calmed when she saw her groom.

The two also made a point of incorporating their love story into their wedding. “We had our wedding in Walla Walla, which put us in the rolling hills of Eastern Washington where we first met.  We also had our dog, Pete, at the wedding.  He is a symbol of Jessica’s adventurous side.” Jessica adds, “Our wedding day was as much about family as it was about us. We both have been living away from family for a while, so we treated our wedding as a big reunion.” From the majesty of their cathedral ceremony to the charm of their reception, Jessica and Tommy’s Walla Walla wedding was a beautiful representation of their sweet story, while the talented Alexandra Celia was there to capture their tale on camera.
