Vacuuming makes a room look instantly cleaner. Nothing gives a neat and tidy look like vacuuming does. You may not know this, but there are right and wrong ways to vacuum. Everyone would like their vacuuming to be productive and Carpet Care 2000 is here to share some tips to ensure yours is.
Always Vacuum Carpet in Both Directions
When you vacuum any room, don’t just vacuum in one direction and call it good. When you make several passes on the carpet fibers, in both directions, your vacuum will have the ability to suck up more dirt and debris that can damage your carpet and leave it less than clean.
Take Advantage of Tools Your Vacuum Cleaner Comes With
Don’t dismiss the power of the attachments your vacuum comes with. This is especially true with the wand attachment for the outer edges of the room. You don’t want to forget them. You should be vacuuming the outer edges or the hard to reach areas, with the right attachments at least once a month to keep the carpeting clean.
Don’t Vacuum Carpet Too Fast
Vacuuming will be much more successful when you take your time while doing it. Don’t rush the process, and vacuum slowly. When you are vacuuming quickly, your vacuum doesn’t have the opportunity to remove all the dirt and allergens in the fibers of your carpet like it does when you vacuum at a slower pace.
Don’t Let a Vacuum Bag or Canister Fill Up All the Way
You should always avoid allowing the canister or the vacuum bag on your vacuum fill up all the way. Your vacuum will work more efficiently if the bag or canister is halfway full or less. This gives it the sucking power it needs to get the job done.
Always Be Sure the Height Adjustment is Right for the Room
There are several vacuums that will adjust automatically to the height of the carpet fibers in your room. If you have one that doesn’t, you should always be aware of the height settings on your vacuum. If it is set too high or too low for the carpeting in your room, you aren’t giving your vacuum the chance to do a good job. This will drastically effect your vacuuming results.
Don’t Wait for Your Carpet to Look Dirty Before Vacuuming
If you are waiting for your carpet to look dirty before you vacuum it, stop. Vacuuming your carpets regularly will remove dirt and dust that you can’t see with your eyes, but is definitely present. Don’t wait for your carpet to be visibly dirty before you turn on the vacuum.
