In our household, we never have any vacuum issues because each time we finish vacuuming the entire house, we will remove all the hair stuck underneath the vacuum. By removing the hair, you will put less stress on the motor of your vacuum. Plus this will allow the brushes to spin properly and not get stuck. This is a very simple tip to help maintain the life of your vacuum. It only takes an extra minute to pull out the hair, as much as you can.
