Use only mild soap and a damp cloth to clean the tool. Clean out any clippings which may
have accumulated in the Blower/Vac. When used properly with dry leaves the fan chamber
of your Blower/Vac should remain clean. If damp earth and debris are ingested some of the
particles may build up on the inside of the fan chamber. If this happens the performance of
the unit will decrease. This area can be cleaned out by gently wiping out with a damp rag
after disconnecting from the power source. Your Blower/Vac should be stored in a dry place.
