There are also vacuum cleaners designed specifically for pets, children, or people with allergies. Carefully consider your needs and choose the right equipment for your home and lifestyle. If you’re overwhelmed by the vast number of models, styles, types, and brands, our experts can help you determine the best option for you to use between our professional carpet cleaning visits.
Keeping your vacuum cleaner clean as a whistle and well-maintained
If you have a bagless vacuum cleaner, it probably has some type of canister and filter system. Those pieces of your vacuum cleaner need to be cleaned periodically. If you ignore them, the vacuum can clog as the filter stops doing its job. Failing to empty out the canister after every vacuum, or after every room, can also cause damaging clogs. When the filters aren’t working as they should, your home isn’t really getting clean.
The biggest, most common mistake people make when vacuuming
One of the worst things ever invented is carpet powders. They really shouldn’t even be on the market. Using a carpet powder breaks down your carpet and clogs your vacuum. If you use a bagless vacuum cleaner with a filter, the carpet powders can ruin your vacuum in just one use.
If you want to remove odors from your carpets, stick to a light sprinkling of baking soda. Baking soda is natural, doesn’t break down your carpets, and vacuums up more easily. And, it’s cheaper and can be used for other things around the home.
How wear and tear affects your ability to keep carpets clean
When carpet fibers wear out, it allows dirt and debris to work deeper into the carpet. That makes it almost impossible to cleanse with a vacuum or home rug cleaner, and it can take a professional cleaner to get the carpet cleaning at that point.
