Wet/dry vacuum cleaner operating instructions: Here's how it works

A wet/dry vacuum cleaner is extremely easy to operate. So that you can still get the most out of your device, we will share some instructions for the various uses of this all-purpose vacuum cleaner.

Instructions: Thorough upholstery cleaning

Whether in the car or in the living room: crumbs and stains on upholstery, seats or the sofa are always annoying. Dirt, crumbs or pet hair can be easily vacuumed away with the upholstery nozzle specially designed for upholstered furniture. If you need to get into hard-to-reach corners and nooks of your sofa, you can also use the narrow crevice nozzle.

However, when using the upholstery nozzle, keep in mind that you should not use it for wet vacuuming. If you want to remove stains from your couch, you should either use liquid cleaning agents and a cloth, or - if you want to use a wet/dry vacuum cleaner - a powder cleaning agent that you can vacuum off the sofa after a certain amount of time. Here, depending on the type of fabric, baking soda is often recommended as a helpful home remedy.

The perfect vacuum cleaner for allergy sufferers

Advanced HEPA pleated filters ensure that Einhell SACL wet/dry vacuum cleaners only expel virtually sterile air. This makes them the perfect choice for allergy sufferers or anyone sensitive to dust.

In addition to the replaceable filters, the vacuums can also be equipped with a paper bag or, depending on the model, a fleece bag that holds dust and dry dirt. The bag can be disposed of quickly, cleanly and safely after the work is done.

Maximum freedom of movement with cordless wet/dry vacuum cleaners

Imagine being able to use your vacuum cleaner all over the house, in the car or on the building site without having to pull an annoying cord behind you. With the cordless wet/dry vacuum cleaner from the Power X-Change family, now you can!

Get ready for cordless working and maximum suction power thanks to powerful and durable batteries. Wherever you need to remove dust or wet dirt, a cordless wet/dry vacuum cleaner is always at hand and can be used anywhere.

The Einhell wet-dry vacuums are perfect helpers for cleaning your car.

Instruction: Reliable removal of wet dirt

Whether it's spilled drinks, rainwater or ground water on the building site: Wherever liquids or wet dirt need to be removed quickly and thoroughly, a wet/dry vacuum cleaner is the ideal tool.

Simply remove the paper bag or fleece bag from the collection container, replace the pleated filter with the foam filter and activate the vacuum cleaner's suction function. The powerful motor and the perfect design of the suction nozzles immediately create strong suction power to remove water, moisture and dirt.

You can dry out your building site within minutes, remove standing water on the terrace or clean your floor thoroughly and efficiently. When your work is done, simply empty the water from the container and wipe the collection container dry. And you're done!

Wet-dry vacuums are also suitable for cleaning wooden floors.
Tip: With a wet/dry vacuum cleaner you combine the benefits of a wet vacuum cleaner and a dry vacuum cleaner. The perfect 2-in-1 device!

Instructions: Removing dust and dry dirt

For dust, hair or small amounts of building rubble: An Einhell wet/dry vacuum cleaner is the perfect vacuum cleaner when it comes to removing stubborn or large areas of dry dirt.

All dry vacuum cleaners from Einhell can be used without bags, but are also supplied with a dirt collection bag. For particularly easy operation, the dry vacuum cleaners can also be equipped with a large, robust and particularly tear-resistant fleece bag that absorbs dust and dirt. This keeps your vacuum cleaner itself clean and you can remove the debris in the bag in one easy step. 

Advanced filters ensure the exhaust air from the wet/dry vacuum cleaner is hygienically clean. This makes them the perfect choice for allergy sufferers.

Removing dust and dry dirt becomes a breeze with the wet-dry vacuum.

Instructions: Powerful use on building sites

Many types of dirt can occur on the construction site. Dry building rubble, damp spots or rain getting in must be removed quickly so as not to slow down construction work. A wet vacuum cleaner and a dry vacuum cleaner in one: A wet/dry vacuum cleaner is the perfect device for removing all kinds of dirt from building sites.

To ensure that your vacuum cleaner can withstand the high dirt and dust loads of a construction site, you should choose an Einhell SACL wet-dry vacuum cleaner, because these meet dust protection class L thanks to the HEPA pleated filter. This means that they also reliably filter fine dust.

In combination with the integrated automatic socket, the wet-dry vacuums are also suitable for extracting power tools. If you are working on a building site, for example, with a drywall grinder or a wall groover and connect the tool to the automatic socket, all you have to do is connect the hose to the suction adapter of your tool. When you start up your tool, the wet/dry vacuum cleaner activates automatically and extracts the dust. In this way, the automatic socket serves not only as a power source, but also for synchronous dust extraction, which switches on with your tool and switches off with a slight delay. Perfect for tradespeople, bricklayers or builders who want to keep their site clean and tidy!

The right accessory: Get more out of your wet/dry vacuum cleaner

Even with the normal scope of delivery, the Einhell wet/dry vacuum cleaners are versatile devices for cleaning wet and dry dirt. These accessories make your device even more versatile:

Battery for cordless wet/dry vacuum cleaners: With an additional battery for your Power X-Change wet/dry vacuum cleaner, you can significantly increase its usage time. The best way to do this is with the 18 volt, 2.5 ampere-hour batteries available in Einhell's Power X-Change range.

Paper bag for the collection container: Clean bags: With a bag for dry dirt and dust, your vacuum cleaner will stay clean and working at full power even after long periods of use. The strong paper sacks can be removed from the vacuum cleaner in one simple step.

Foam filter for wet vacuuming: You use your wet-dry vacuum cleaner very often to vacuum up liquids and your foam filter is dirty after frequent use? You can find new foam filters in our range as practical sets.

Replacement filter: Even a pleated filter will reach the end of its service life at some point - but the wet/dry vacuum cleaner is far from it! You can find out which replacement filter you should look for for your device in the operating instructions of your vacuum cleaner.

Fabric filter: Instead of pleated filters, certain Einhell wet-dry vacuums can also be equipped with a fabric filter. The fabric filter is put over the filter basket and fastened with a rubber band. This protects the motor from contamination and the dust remains in the container but is not collected in the filter.

Nozzle set: Have you lost a nozzle or are you looking for a specific nozzle that was not included in the delivery? In our range you will find a variety of nozzle sets, including a car cleaning set specially designed for cleaning car seats and the interior of your vehicle.
