Be careful where and what you vacuum, too — damp surfaces and debris with moisture (like food) collect inside the vacuum hose, causing dust to stick and potentially clog the pathway to the holding receptacle. Once inside, damp material can also mold, which may cause a mildew smell when you vacuum later.
