Save time by tackling two cleaning tasks at once! Sprinkle a carpet deodorizing powder all over the carpet, then allow it to sit for 15 minutes. Bonus: carpet deodorizing powders come in several scents, so your home will smell great too! After the deodorizer sits for 15 minutes, vacuum as usual, sucking up the deodorizing powder as you go.
Tackling dirt, dust, and debris head-on, your vacuum is sure to get a little dirty. Rolling a filthy vacuum cleaner across your rug or carpet will do more harm than good; so give your vacuum a little TLC and keep it clean! Otherwise, all your hard work will go to waste.
We’re over halfway through our 5 tips on how to properly vacuum, you’re almost done!
Do yourself a favor and vacuum all high-traffic areas on a weekly basis. But first, you must understand what defines a high-traffic area. As a good rule of thumb, you can safely consider the path from the front door to the couch, kitchen, hallway, and bathroom, and bedrooms high-traffic areas. If you’re thinking to yourself, “wait, isn’t that everywhere?” you’re not totally wrong. While high-traffic areas encompass most areas of a home, low traffic areas include a variety of spaces, such as:
Rarely Used Spaces (i.e. Formal Dining Rooms, Guest Bedrooms, Finished Basements, etc.)
Corners & Small Spaces Behind Furniture
If you’re in the market for a new rug or carpet, for whatever reason, keep in mind that low-pile, synthetic rugs and carpet are the most vacuum-friendly. That doesn’t mean that wool or shag rugs and carpet can’t be cleaned, it simply means that they require more attention. If you’ve got a wool or shag rug that needs a serious cleaning, leave it to a professional cleaning company.
See, learning how to vacuum properly, or how to make vacuuming simpler, is pretty easy to do!
