Is your Oreck vacuum not picking up like it used to? Don't throw it away! All it needs is a little TLC. A new agitator/ brushroll can bring you Oreck back to life. The bristles over time break off on a brushroll. We don't realize this because we never look. But it makes a lot of sence. That beater bar has been working hard for years! Now it's bristles that once reached the carpet just perfectly to clean up our messes are worn away and missing. This is causing it to not pick up like it used to. Easy fix. Swap out the old brushroll with a new one. Just like getting a new toothbrush. You will wonder why you didn't do it sooner. You might as well change the belt too for a new vacuum feel.
