5 Vacuuming Tips

Vacuuming can be repetitive and boring at some point. Don’t let this get to you. Your carpets should be vacuumed at least once a week. This can help to keep the dust and dirt out of them. Here are a couple vacuuming tips that could come in handy!

1. Dust it Off! Before you start vacuuming, dust your room from the top-down. What this means is to get started dusting your ceiling fan and then work your way down to the baseboards.

vacuum2. Move it! Be sure that small items are picked up off the floor. Don’t be lazy and try to vacuum around them! Also, look for small pieces which may be on your floor, like bobby pins or screws. This can damage your vacuum and who wishes to fix that or invest in a brand new one? Not us!

3. Work Backwards. Start in the rear corner of the room and work your way out of the room. This also applies to stairs, start at the top and work down.

4. Check the bag often. Bags should be changed after they are half-full. The vacuum becomes less efficient as the bag starts to fill up. It may also begin to leave an odor in your home when the bag becomes too full.

5. Once a Week. Make sure that you are vacuuming all of your carpeted areas at least one time a week. Even if you don’t ever go into your living room area, ensure that your vacuum it!

Consider What You’re Dealing With

Over the months you may forget about cleaning the couches and chairs or maybe you may just think they don't need a cleaning. Well, you're wrong! Nearly all people make the mistake of ignoring the upkeep needs of their furniture because they don’t think it needs to be cleaned. Alternatively, they spot clean and vacuum their carpets, and commit to regularly Chem-Dry cleanings for their flooring. But did you think about the couch cushion with the set in spaghetti stain? How clean can your favorite lounge chair actually be when months (or possibly even years) of pet hair, dirt and food stains have built up and set in?

The Functionality of Fabric Protectant

Just as your carpet is an investment, so is your loveseat, couch and reclining chair. Do you remember when individuals would cover their couches with plastic to protect them? These days, you will find there's a far better method to protect your furniture than uncomfortable, sticky plastic. Whether you’re more likely to dropping your coffee cup on your upholstery every so often, or simply tracking in dirt from the outdoors, protectant will help you keep those unwanted stains and spots away. Our solution helps to reduce stains from seeping into the fibers of your upholstery and carpet fibers. This protectant helps stains from becoming permanent in your upholstery. Our Protectant allows a few more seconds for you to grab that towel and get the stain up a little better. Ultimately, it helps save money, by easily helping you to remove stains each time you spill or stain your furniture.

Protect Your Furniture From Difficult Stains
