    • 1
      Create a cover letter to use saying who the document is for and from as well as the intended fax number and your phone number. This alerts the office or home the fax is sent to who it is intended for. Place cover letter on top of your documents and insert them into the fax machine feeder facing in the direction the machine specifies.
    • 2
      Enter the fax number into the machine. There will be a number pad just like a phone on the fax machine. Carefully type in the number so you do not make any mistakes, as it is difficult to know when you have dialed a wrong fax number.
    • 3
      Hit the send key once you have properly entered all of the numbers into the machine. This will initiate the sending of the documents. The send key should be larger than the others and easy to locate. Traditionally, it is placed next to or below the keypad.
    • 4
      Wait for your documents to pass through the machine and collect them when finished. Whatever you are sending will pass through a series of rollers that feed it through the machine and copy it digitally.
    • 5
      Look for a confirmation page to print. This will tell you whether or not your fax successfully went through.

    • 1
      Examine the area of the vacuum where it deposits dirt. In older vacuums, this is a bag. In new ones it is often a removable and reusable canister. If the bag is full, you need to change it; if it is a reusable container it should be emptied as often as possible. If the deposit area is full the vacuum won't be able to pick up dirt effectively.
    • 2
      Check the vacuum's height. Most vacuums have an adjustable indicator for carpets of various lengths. If your vacuum has one, make sure it is set to the appropriate length for your carpet. If it is set too high it won't have enough suction and if it is set to low it won't have enough airflow.
    • 3
      Move all of the smaller items out of the vacuum's way. Even if you don't plan to move the furniture when you vacuum, such as ottomans and coffee tables, you can remove the smaller items easily.
    • 4
      Turn the vacuum on and push the vacuum forward and backwards over your carpet, in slow, even strokes. If you move the vacuum too quickly it won't pick up dirt as well.
    • 5
      Use the vacuum's attachments such as the simple hose with exchangeable ends, to clean corners and under the edges of furniture. Most vacuums have a series of attachments for these sorts of jobs. It is a good idea to do this extra bit of cleaning so the normal airflow of your room doesn't push unwanted dirt into your newly cleaned areas.
