Ensure that all the parts beginning with the inner ones click into place. Then carefully fix the outer parts. You are set to let the vacuum cleaner do its duties and relieve you of the dragging.
In sum, regular cleaning means improved efficiency. The 20 minutes cleaning power that lacks in most of the vacuum cleaners are largely attributed to how well you clean it on regular basis.
