Investing in a good Vacuum cleaner is a major step forward toward keeping up a clean home. The main choice is between an upright model, which is good if you have large areas of floor to clean, and a cylinder model, which is best if you have a lot of harwood floors and stairs. Choose a vacuum with a variety of attachments, then you'll be able to do a number of different jobs around the house very speedily. Many vacuum cleaners incorporate built-in storage for the smaller attachments. Dial-A-Maid cleaning service in Evanston, Il. always uses 2 different types of vacuum cleaners for the most efficient and effective way of cleaning all types of floors, carpeted or bare, an upright, with a beater, rotating brush for carpeting and a cylinder vacuum for any hardwood and/or tile floor. Here are some pointers to quickly and efficiently vacuum any type of floors.
1.Before you vacuum, pick up any pieces of paper, food, or other debris from the floor that might get sucked into your vacuum cleaner and block it.
2. Use the carpet floorhead or adjust your upright vacuum cleaner for use on carpets. Starting at the far side of the room, vacuum back and forth, using overlapping strokes.
3. Work toward the door, still making repeating, overlapping strokes. Go over dirty patches several times, the vacuum will pick up more dust each time.
4. When you have finished vacuuming the main area of the carpet, attach a crevice nozzle and use this to clean along the baseboards and in the corners.
When vacuuming the stairs, use the crevice nozzle 1st to clean thoroughly all the corners, then use the carpet floorhead or adjusting your upright cleaner for use on carpets, start vacuuming on the bottom step. Vacuum the tread, the horizontal part of the stair, then swivel the floorhead so you can run it along the riser, the vertical part of the stair. Repeat on each stair, continuing until you reach the top.
Every few days, vacuum areas of carpet that get a lot of use. Ground-in dirt will shorten the life of the carpet. Every few weeks, pull out beds, tables and chairs, and vacuum the carpet underneath. Once per year, especially if you have children or pets in the house, have your carpets professionally cleaned.
