Not everyone enjoys cleaning, but did you know there’s a right and wrong way to vacuum your home? In this article, we’ll discuss how you can perfect your vacuuming technique and ensure your carpet stays clean all year round.
How to Vacuum – The Correct Way
There are a few tips and tricks you can follow when it comes to vacuuming. In this section, we’ll touch on some of the most important and how to ensure your carpets remain as clean as possible.
Take Your Time
Vacuuming is often seen as a chore many homeowners endure, so it may be tempting to rush through the process. But if you want to be thorough and save yourself the time of doing it over and over again, you’ll want to slow down.
Be methodical and take your time when vacuuming. Not only does this ensure you cover every inch of your carpet, but also prevents damage.
Move Furniture & Loose Items
Furniture and loose items often get in the way of your vacuuming. Before you start, ensure the space you want to vacuum is clear of any obstacles such as light furniture and toys.
Familiarise Yourself with Your Vacuum
All the little attachments, nozzles and hoses that come with your vacuum have a purpose and using them incorrectly (or for something they’re not suitable for) can damage the equipment and your floor. That’s why it’s important to familiarise yourself with your machine before starting.
Clean Your Equipment
Vacuums often become full of dirt and grime. When you start vacuuming, you want to do so with a clean machine to get the best results. This means emptying the vacuum bag and maintaining your equipment between uses.
Face the Right Direction
For the ultimate clean, you need to face the right direction. Experts such as those at Sun Dry suggest starting from the corner of your room and working your way to the exits. Where possible, avoid walking back over your carpet to unplug the machine when you’re finished. This may mean plugging your machine into an outlet in a separate room.
Arrange Professional Carpet Cleaning
Of course, if you really want to ensure your carpets are well looked after and maintain their integrity, you’ll need to have them professionally cleaned on a regular basis.
