Cleaning
and Disinfecting
the
Wet/Dry
Vac
To keep your Wet/Dry Vac looking its
best, clean the outside with a cloth
dampened with warm water and mild
soap.
To clean the drum:
1. Dump debris out.
2. Wash drum thoroughly with warm water
and mild soap.
3. Wipe out with dry cloth.
Before prolonged storage or as needed
(i.e., waste water pick up) the drum
should be disinfected.
3. Empty drum after 20 minutes. Rinse
with water until bleach smell is gone.
Allow drum to dry completely before
sealing the motor on the drum.
Storage
Before storing your Vac, the dust drum
should be emptied and cleaned. The cord
should be wrapped around the handle
and the hose should be stored as
described in this manual. Accessories
should be kept in the same area as the
Vac so they can be readily available.
The Vac should be stored indoors.
To disinfect the drum:
1. Pour 1 gallon of water and 1 teaspoon
chlorine bleach into the drum.
2. Let solution stand for 20 minutes,
carefully swishing every few minutes,
making sure to wet all inside surfaces
of the drum.
