Services for Real Estate Pros with Pro Services

Most homeowners use vacuums to maintain the cleanliness of their home. Many of them believe that they can use their vacuum properly by simply plugging in. If you think like this, then you need to learn proper vacuuming techniques to use your vacuum in the best possible manner. Below are a few methods to boost the power of your vacuum.
Proper Vacuuming Techniques - Keep Your Carpet Dust Free
Follow a Routine
If you use your vacuum to clean your dirty carpets, then you need to change your approach. When the stain and debris will get inside of your carpet fibers, you will need a deep clean. You can avoid this condition by following a routine cleaning schedule. Set a time and follow it dedicatedly to clean your carpets and to maintain your indoor air quality. Dirt and dust can pollute your indoor environment and that can cause breathing problems.
Don’t Rush
You should always set a correct speed to ensure proper cleaning. In addition, you should not work quickly. Simply running over the carpets will not serve the purpose. Take your time and move the vacuum forward and backward to clean all the debris and dust.
Give Extra TLC for High-Traffic Areas
Your living room, foyers, hallways, and mudrooms will need more attention than other places of your home. You will find a larger amount of dust and dirt in those areas. You can vacuum these areas every day to maintain the cleanliness. If it is not possible to clean every day, you can consider vacuuming on every alternating days, or at least twice a week. Otherwise, the dust and dirt will settle into carpet fibers making it difficult to remove without deep cleaning.
Maintain the Cleanliness of Your Vacuum
You need to clean your vacuums regularly to get a better cleaning every time you use your cleaner. With proper cleaning, there will be enough airflow in your device to operate smoothly and efficiently. Also, you will have to empty the vacuum after every use to boost the performance of your vacuum. Changing the bag regularly will serve the same purpose.
Choose the Correct Vacuum Cleaner
You will find different types of vacuum cleaners in the market. All of them come with some specific features such as beater bars. You should choose the one suitable for your flooring. Some area rugs and carpets are made from natural materials such as silk and wool. For natural materials, you should not choose the one that comes with beater bars. In addition, you need to ensure that the cleaner is well accessorized to meet different types of your cleaning needs. You will need some specific attachments to clean hard to reach areas.
In Conclusion
These are proper vacuuming techniques. Following the techniques in this article will help you get the best out of your vacuuming. You will have to focus on some key factor such as the right vacuum cleaner, routine cleaning, and proper cleaning method.

Good tips! I learned about vacuuming slowly when the central vac person was showing me how to work the vacuum when we built our home. Until then, I was one of those people that raced the vacuum over the carpet thinking it was working well.
