A clean home is not only better looking but is also more hygienic. Every home-owner’s vacuum cleaner is their go-to option to acquire a cleaner home that promotes a dust-free environment which ensures cleaner air at home.
When it comes to cleaning floors the vacuum cleaner is a real life-saver; however sometimes it is possible that this wonderful creation of man is not being used to its full potential which denies you much more than you are settling for.
Below are 13 pointers enlisted just to make sure you are using you vacuum cleaner to its full potential providing you with the best results and lesser labouring.
Make cleaning easier
The most important thing to remember is not to make things more tedious than they seem. Try to avoid getting your home dirty in the first place instead of going in for extra cleaning. This can be achieved by simple precautions like taking off your shoes outside your home to ensure you are not introducing your home to the filth from the outside world.
A door mat at entry and exit parts of your home can help promote the same so your guests can rub the extra dirt off their shoes before entering your home giving you more time to concentrate on enjoying time with your guests rather than just thinking of your vacuuming regime.
The first tip is, do not make it more difficult than it should be. If, for instance, you enter your home wearing shoes, chances are you will bring along leaves, dirt, and other elements from outside. This will make your vacuuming task all the more difficult. So, it will be best to make sure everyone removes their shoes before entering the house.
This will keep the dirt in one place, rather than being tracked everywhere in your home. You may even place a doormat at entry points so that people can wipe their shoes before entering.
The more the better
We all know how disgusting balls of hair or fur look especially when flying around in front of a guest. To make sure you don’t have hair and dust rolling from one corner to another with every bit of wind, it is essential to vacuum some areas at least a second or third time. This helps you make sure that you picked up every bit of hair and other fibres. Cleaning or vacuuming from different directions can also help promote better cleaning.
Cleaning timetables can be helpful
Creating a timetable can seem quite dull; on the contrary it can really help you make sure your house is clean on a regular basis. Sticking to a timetable to clean either on a particular day of the month or week helps you avoid forgetting and keeps you bent on your cleaning duties. Most of the time vacuuming once or twice a week is good enough as long as you thoroughly clean the most dirt accumulating in parts of your home.
Replacing the vacuum bag
It is easy to notice that once your vacuum bag starts filling up the suction power seems to be reduced and sometimes you need to go over the same particles of dirt to make sure they are all picked up. All these extra do-overs can be avoided by simply emptying or replacing the vacuum bag routinely.
Get rid of spots
It is impossible for vacuums to remove stains. Using a spot cleaner on the stain before vacuuming can provide quite delightful results and help you get rid of the distressing spots in your home. So the next time you see a stubborn spot while vacuuming you know the drill.
Cleaning the Filter
If your Vacuum cleaner does not have a self-cleaning filter, then you should make a regular effort to clean and if necessary replace the filters.
Little things have big importance
A quite obvious but fact worth mentioning would be to pick up the objects or litter on the floor before vacuuming. This results in avoiding little objects from clogging your vacuum or you having to be constantly interrupted in your cleaning to pick up objects while vacuuming. It also helps make your vacuuming duties less monotonous and laborious.
Shifting the furniture can be good for more than just a new look
Some areas can be difficult to clean if your furniture is always in the same layout or setting of your home. A change in the layout of your furniture once in a while ensures that every part of your home is well cleaned and not accumulating dirt in the long run.
Use appropriate attachments
