Vacuuming is such an important part of home cleaning. This is because your floors tend to get dirty before any other area in your house does. But have you noticed a world of difference between floors cleaned professionally and the ones in your home after you’ve just vacuumed? Those subpar results are probably owed to common vacuuming techniques and lack of knowledge where attachments heads are concerned. Yes, there is a lot more to it than just maneuvering the vacuum cleaner over your floors aimlessly!
Your home is an exceptional place which needs to be maintained and respected; therefore, average cleaning just won’t cut it! It’s time you step up and start cleaning like a pro! Don’t worry; we’re not going to send you out into the wilderness without your camp gear. In other words, we’re going to tell you all you need to know so you can start cleaning like vacuum professionals do. Read on!
Don’t Be Hasty!
The first rule of cleaning like a pro is not to rush things. If you’re expecting practical results, you’ve got to put in the time. This applies in particular with vacuuming because it takes more than merely pushing your vacuum cleaner for a couple of minutes to pick up dust and dirt thoroughly. So, we suggest you set aside an appropriate amount of time solely devoted to vacuuming.
Clean Your Vacuum!
If you’re trying to vacuum with a full bag or clogged canister, forget about it. Your vacuum cleaner will be ten times less efficient than it could be if you emptied out the bag or dust container. So, before you begin vacuuming, check if your vacuum cleaner is clean and ready to go!
Back and Forth Rule
This means going over an area multiple times using a back and forth motion while changing the direction each time. Did you know that 99% of the time dirt and dust remain over an area if only vacuumed once? This is where we’d like to remind you that vacuuming like a pro takes time and effort if you want to get those unmatched cleaning results!
Make Use of Attachments!
If the attachments that came with your vacuum cleaner are still sealed and untouched, it’s time you brought out the manual and learned everything there is to know about these magical cleaning aids! These attachments indeed make cleaning easier and much more efficient when used correctly. In fact, there are tons of new vacuum head accessories on the market for different cleaning purposes, so we suggest you do a little research and purchase a couple of them for better cleaning.
When you try to vacuum around the legs of furniture, you easily miss out on dirty spots. What’s worse, if you don’t move furniture aside to vacuum, they leave rings of dust that are harder to get rid of over time. Hence, we suggest moving furniture around at least 3-4 times a week when vacuuming your floors.
To recap, vacuuming like a pro requires the assistance of your good vacuum head attachments, coupled with patience and a little more effort than usual!
