Vacuum cleaners are such an understated item in the home however when it comes to cleaning we'd all be lost without it! Whether we're cleaning our homes, schools or work places a vacuum cleaner is always the best appliance for the job. From the small domestic 9L vacuums to the larger wet & dry 15L machines there can be so many different ways to do the job however we'll share with you 5 handy tips to ensure you get the best results.
As much as we don't like to admit it vacuuming once isn't enough for a deep clean. Vacuuming the floor to remove dust and hair can be a tough task, especially if pets have been in the room. This means you need to vacuum the floor multiple times to remove dust and hair from the floor and avoid chances of allergy. Use the vacuum cleaner in a crisscross pattern when vacuuming to remove dust and pet hair from the floor.
Though an obvious cleaning tip, many people tend to avoid changing the bag of the vacuum cleaner. If you don’t change the bag regularly, you will have a tough time vacuuming. If you have a bagged vacuum cleaner, ensure that you change the bag when it is 3/4th full. If you wait too long to empty the bag when vacuuming the hose may get clogged and reduce the efficiency of the machine. If you have a bagless vacuum cleaner, start with an empty canister to get the best results.
An important point that you need to remember is a vacuum cleaner can’t remove stains. As a result, you need to spot clean if there is any spills on the carpet or surface. In addition, if you can make sure that you treat the spill immediately so that you don’t find it difficult to remove the stain later. If you notice any spills when vacuuming, ensure that you clean the stain with a spot cleaner. This will enhance the vacuuming results and also keep the carpet surface in a better condition.
A very effective tip that you need to follow when vacuuming is to choose the right setting. Vacuum cleaners come with different settings which you need to adjust depending on your specific requirements. The setting of the vacuum cleaner needs to be changed depending on the height of the surface. As the height of the surface will change will change depending on the location your cleaning therefore you need to change the setting of the vacuum cleaner accordingly.
When vacuuming the floor, ensure that you remove small objects from the floor. Clear all the clutter so that it gets easy to clean the floor. Clearing the clutter ensures that small objects don’t get stuck into the vacuum cleaner and ruin it. In addition, if small objects are scattered on the floor, it becomes difficult to efficiently remove the dust and dirt.
