How to Vacuum your Carpets

Home/Uncategorized/How to Vacuum your Carpets

Many take vacuuming carpets for granted! Vacuuming is the obligatory activity that needs to happen once a week or whenever one sees crumbs or dirt on the carpet, right? WRONG!

Your carpet is more than an expensive part of your home décor; it provides function as well as potential danger if not properly cleaned. Carpets are dust magnets, and can become home to dust mites. Many people are allergic to dust mites, and once they die we wind up breathing in their remains, which potentially lead to skin rashes among other more serious problems. Additionally, dirty carpets possess health issues including athletes’ foot.

So, you will need to vacuum efficiently and frequently . . . but how?

How to Properly Vacuum

Interestingly enough, the first step to vacuuming is to do other household cleaning first! Start high and work low. Dust ceilings, clean walls, get all of the clutter off of the floors, sweep out debris from non-carpeted floors, and you’ll be on the right track for the deepest and most effective house cleaning.

When you are ready to vacuum, remember these tricks to ensure you obtain the best possible cleaning.

  • Clean out your vacuum’s dirt collector, filters, and brushes
  • Work in one particular direction
  • Vacuum slowly, moving forward in a straight line, and then slowly backing up directly over that same path
  • Complete vacuuming the entire room, paying attention to the edges, even though they might be less traveled
  • Empty the dirt collector or bag and repeat the process going the perpendicular direction.
