Proper vacuuming techniques

October 12th, 2017


If you have carpets in your home, you need to vacuum to keep your floors clean and dust free.  Vacuuming regularly is not only good for your carpets, but will also have an impact on the air you and your family breathe inside your home.

There are some great ‘how to’ videos on the internet.  Start with how to use a vacuum cleaner.  Here are a few easy tips:

  • Go slow and steady, don’t rush. A steady back and forth over the areas to be cleaned will do the trick.
  • Most vacuums don’t reach the edges and corners well. Detach the tools that come with most vacuums and use the proper one to reach those edges and corners.
  • When cleaning a room, start with dusting the higher areas and work your way down, left to right in the room. Then vacuum.   This will save you from having to vacuum again after dusting.
  • Remember to replace vacuum bags when they are two thirds full, clean any filters, and equipment regularly.
