Keep reading for tips to help you make the most of your vacuuming time.
The Right Tool for the Job
Do you remember that big box of attachments which you almost immediately stored in your closet or attic? It’s time to get it out and take a look at what it included. All of these attachments have been designed to help you clear faster and thoroughly.
For example, if you spend a lot of time moving furniture just to reach one hard-to-reach spot, swap your brush head for a the long-thin hose attachment and reach these spaces easily and quickly. Take a look through each of the attachments to see which can help you out around your home, remembering that you can use them for any vacuuming purpose. For example, if you are looking to get pet hair of a blanket or comforter you recently received from the Groupon Coupons page for Vera Bradley, look for a gentle brush attachment to do the job.
The Rule of Three
If you find yourself fighting against a recurring stain which doesn’t seems to get the better of you, it’s time to move on. In fact, if you can’t remove a stain of a mark within three swipes of your vacuum cleaner, move on and tend to the stain independently later.
Because your vacuum cleaner has been designed to remove these types of marks in two swipes. So three is giving it more than it needs. If it isn’t coming out in three, your vacuum cleaner isn’t taking it out.
The Right Time
On the subject of saving time, be sure that you do your vacuuming last. The reason for this is simple; if you do your vacuuming first then you will dirty it immediately with cleaning debris and simply walking around.
Instead, place your vacuuming at the end of your chore list.
Empty The Bag
Last, but certainly not least, is the tip to empty the bag. Every time that you finish your chores! Even if your bag is only half full, if you have the ability to empty it and continue using the bag, be sure that you do.
The level of suction which your vacuum cleaner can achieve depends on how empty the bag is, simply because if there is debris blocking the bag’s intake then air can’tflow through. For this reason, starting with an empty bag is the best way to maximize your vacuuming time.
When it comes to keeping a clean home, vacuuming is one of the most important tasks you can do. And, as you have just read, there are many ways which you can utilize to up your vacuuming game.
