Spring Vacuuming

It is that time of year again! With spring comes the urge to open up all the windows in your house and clean everything in it! Nothing takes a beating over the winter like your carpets. Whether it is the wall to wall carpeting in your bedroom or the area rug in your dining room, they are all filthy and need cleaning. Cleaning your own carpets are time consuming and can be a never ending battle. And, professional cleaning services although nice, are not so nice on the budget. You can go with the rental variety, but those are tough too- having to navigate through the shampoo, the cleaners, and the chemicals. What to do? Read below for the best ways to care for your carpet without all the services, the equipment, and the expense. The most important step in caring for your carpet is vacuuming it thoroughly and frequently, particularly in high-traffic areas. Walking on soiled carpet allows the soil particles to work their way below the surface of the pile where they are far more difficult to remove and can damage the carpet fibers. Frequent vacuuming removes these particles from the surface before problems occur. For rooms with light traffic, vacuum the carpet traffic lanes twice weekly and the entire area once weekly. In areas with heavy traffic, vacuum the carpet traffic lanes daily and the entire area twice weekly. Up to three passes of the machine will suffice for light soiling, but five to seven passes are necessary for heavily soiled areas. Change the vacuuming direction occasionally to help stand the pile upright and reduce matting. Use a quality vacuum: An inexpensive machine may remove surface dirt but will not effectively remove the hidden dirt and particles embedded in the pile. Invest in a good vacuum cleaner to get the dirt you can't see and prolong the beauty and life of your carpet. If you want to go with a cleaner program, choose wisely. A good recommendation is to use a vacuum with a rotating brush or combination beater/brush bar that agitates the carpet pile and mechanically loosens soil for removal. Carpet with thick loop pile construction, particularly wool and wool-blend styles, may be sensitive to brushing or rubbing of the pile surface and may become fuzzy. In addition, shag (or cabled) styles with long pile yarns tend to wrap around the rotating brushes causing damage to the yarn. Whatever you choose, be sure to test a vacuum with a beater/brush bar in an inconspicuous location before regular use, to make sure it doesn't produce excessive fuzzing. Good luck cleaning those carpets! ---------------------------------------------------- Are you looking for a great vacuuming tool?
