Make Vacuuming Easier

Before I drag out the vacuum and start vacuuming, I do a quick walk through and pick up toys, throw rugs, blankets, office supplies, anything noticeable on the floor that needs to be picked up and moved.

This way I’m not going to have to worry about damaging my vacuum cleaner when it sucks up a paperclip or some other small object.

Vacuuming is the last thing I do. Not only do I want to pick up stray items, I also dust, shake out and air out floor rugs then put them back when I'm done.

Before you start, also check the bag and make sure it isn’t full. A full bag is not helpful to efficient cleaning. It just doesn't suck enough dirt out of the carpet.

Not all vacuums will butt up to the edge of the wall to pick up dust bunnies, little pieces of paper, etc. Here are a few things you can do:

• Before you vacuum a room, use the wand and get the edges first.
• For carpeted areas you can also use a stiff broom to run along the edges then vacuum the mess.
• For hard surface areas, you can use the wand tool; you can use a damp rag to run along the baseboards, or a dust mop to clean first.

Vacuum rooms first, then do the halls and stairs. Start vacuuming in the back of a room, working your way out.

In bathrooms, start behind the commode, close the door so you can get behind it. In the kitchen don’t forget to get behind and on the sides of the fridge and under the stove.

No matter the kind of carpet you have, regular vacuuming is a must to keep it looking its best.

Benefits of a Regularly Vacuuming

Below are a few vacuum cleaning tips to get the most out of your carpet.

  1. Keeping the carpets cleaned and vacuumed regularly will help to extend the life of the carpet and cut down on the amount of dust and allergens. Ground in dirt can also wear down the carpet fibers and the resilience of the carpets nap.
  2. For the most part, you should vacuum at least once a week, more depending on family size, pets, your job, etc. This is also important if you have young ones in the home.
  3. Don't be in a hurry and use overlapping strokes.
