From now on, vacuumtester will support the Repair Café Foundation. Readers are informed about meetings in their area, if their vacuum cleaner turns out to be broken. With this, vacuumtester wants to contribute to reducing the unnecessary disposal of vacuum cleaners and to contribute to a better climate.
Every day vacuum cleaners are thrown away that most probably could have been repaired. That is not only a waste for your wallet, but also for the environment. Common vacuum cleaner problems can in many cases be solved easily.
Robbert Tigchelaar, owner of the vacuumtester: “We regularly receive questions about problems with vacuum cleaners. From a vacuum cleaner that suddenly makes loud noise, to a vacuum cleaner that is not sucking anymore.” The solution is often simple, but remote support for a repair becomes difficult: “We have written several guides with help with vacuum cleaner repairs, but it is impossible to take a look at it”. Tigchelaar continues.

Fortunately, there is a foundation that organizes accessible meetings to repair household appliances: the Repair Café Foundation.
Repair Café: Help with the repair of vacuum cleaners
The Repair Café Foundation organizes free meetings to repair appliances together. Tools and materials are available on site to get started. Repairmen with different skills are also present to support repairs.
“We see vacuum cleaners very often,” says Martine Postma, who conceived the Repair Café concept in 2009 and has been distributing it worldwide ever since. “They have been in the top 3 of most popular products in the Repair Café for years. Our volunteers have a lot of experience with all kinds of vacuum cleaner problems. In many cases, these can be solved well. So come by if your vacuum cleaner has a defect.”
How does vacuumtester support the Repair Café?
There are several relevant places on the vacuumtester website that refer to the Repair Café website. With this, the vacuum tester draws the attention of its readers to the possibility of having the vacuum cleaner repaired. In addition, vacuumtester made a financial partner contribution.
