Everybody likes to believe that they have mastered the art of housework, but what if there were vacuuming tips you didn’t know which could save you time and effort? Read this article to learn more. When it comes to your household chores, vacuuming is likely to be the one which you have been doing for years. You likely started when you were younger completing your chores, which then moved up to vacuuming for your allowance. Of course, in those days, vacuuming was almost enjoyable because you were able to join in with your family on the chores or you were getting paid! Of course, once you become an adult, your mindset towards vacuuming changes.

Make the Most of Your Vacuuming Time

However, just because you have been doing the chore for a number of years doesn't mean that you can’t benefit from a few professional tips to help you get the most out of your vacuuming time. To get you started with such tips, Pima Cleanpro has the following post to share.

Nobody Wins When You Become Stressed

Would you believe that it’s possible to spend too much time vacuuming your carpets and your floors? Well, before you start to think that this means you never have to clean, it simply means that many homeowners spend too much time focusing on one stain that they end up hurrying through the rest of the vacuuming. Here’s a rule to consider: If you can’t remove the stain with your vacuum cleaner in three go-overs or less, stop trying. In addition to wasting precious vacuuming time going over the same area without any results, it can also damage the quality of your carpet and reduce its lifespan. You see, each time that you run your vacuum cleaner over your carpet you are moving the fibers around and causing them to age. This is normal practice and is how the carpet ages. However, if you spend too much time vacuuming stubborn patches around your home then your carpet will begin to age disproportionately, leading to bald spots and frayed carpet fibers. If you have come up against a stain which has the better of you, help is at hand to exact your retribution! Well, have the stain cleaned at least! Give Pima Cleanpro a call at (520) 954-2119 and find out how their ION exchange cleaning system can not only bring your carpets back to life but can also leave them ready to be walked on in a matter of hours, not days!

Use Your Accessories

Do you remember the box of vacuum cleaner attachments and accessories that came with your vacuum cleaner? While you may have immediately stored it in your attic, the items included have a range of benefits which can help you with your vacuuming. As an example, the long tube with a flattened end is great for reaching up to your ceiling or for vacuuming between large pieces of heavy furniture. Wherever you have stored your box of accessories, take it out and sift through it to see what options you have. Your owner’s manual will be able to tell you their designated uses, however, if you can see that one accessory would be a good fit for a hard to reach space in your home, then by all means, use it!

How Often Are You Vacuuming?

If you are running the vacuum cleaner over your carpets every day then you aren’t doing your carpets any good and you certainly aren’t going to get a good lifespan out of your vacuum cleaner. While there may be other chores which you need to complete more than once a week, vacuuming is not one of them. Instead, plan your vacuuming time after all of your other chores have been completed, so that you can suck up any debris or dirt which made its way onto your carpets as you cleaned.

Keep the Bag as Empty as Possible

Nobody likes to empty the vacuum bag into the trash, but there’s no getting around it. However, if you want to get the best suction from your vacuum cleaner and reduce the time it takes to vacuum your carpets, then this is exactly what you should be doing. Each time that you finish your vacuuming, be sure to empty the bag so that it’s ready to go for the next time.

Your Vacuum Cleaner Isn't a Spot Cleaning Machine?

If you spill some food, don’t vacuum it up. If some chips fall on the floor. Don’t vacuum them up. Instead, get down and remove the items yourself and then spot clean the area with the appropriate method. The reason to avoid using your vacuum cleaner for these types of spills is that the act of vacuuming can actually cause a stain to develop and be pushed into your carpets. Instead, leave your vacuum cleaner for the heavy work.
