How to Troubleshoot Loss of Suction in a Vacuum Video

A major part of my weekend is spent on housecleaning chores, and I try to get through it as quickly as possible so I can go outside and play. I have two pet cats and a rabbit that each shed a full coat of fur a day, so I dread vacuuming and leave it for last. A loss of suction in my vacuum is the last thing I want. This video from Bissell shows what to check if your vacuum cleaner experiences a loss of suction. While the vacuum shown is a Bissell, the tips shown apply to most brands of vacuum cleaners, and these are the tips that I follow.
