Vacuum cleaners are the most demanded cleaning products worldwide because they are considered useful and simple when doing any work of this type. It is common to find them in homes, especially in those that have carpets and rugs since their use is essential for the maintenance of these decoration elements. Nonetheless, despite being a device widely used and known by people of all ages, it is appropriate to ask the following question:
Do you know how to use the vacuum cleaner effectively?
Many people answer with a “yes” to this question, however, it is quite common to use vacuum cleaners inappropriately when cleaning the house. Most of those who are dedicated to housework ensure that its correct use is based on turning on the machine and move it around the room, but it’s not as simple as it seems.
Usually, people thing that the best way to use vacuums is by following a “W” pattern, it means, they are moved backward, then forward and then backward again forming an angle, but this practice represents a problem considering that this type of machines are not designed to suction when moving forward, so the “W” pattern is only effective with half of the area. For this reason, it is advisable to vacuum front-to-back, as this movement allows a greater amount of waste collection.
Another aspect to consider is the speed with which the cleaning activity is carried out, a hurried use of the vacuum cleaner can leave an incomplete or half-finished termination, it is important to dedicate the necessary time to the work to obtain better results. In turn, it is pertinent to check the condition of each vacuum before each session, to check that its parts are installed correctly or its bag is clean, doing this is vital before performing the process. For example, it is necessary to replace the bag when it is half full, when this limit is exceeded, the device begins to quickly lose the suction power, so it is prudent to keep it empty and have spare parts at hand.
It is also very important to establish the height of the brush, if it is set too low, it won’t turn on, and if, by contrast, it is located too high, it will not work properly. Its position must be implanted in such a way that it barely touches or rubs the upper part of the surface to extract the unwanted particles from it.
In summary, the most effective way to use vacuums for cleaning chairs, carpets and other decoration elements is based on the following points:
Movement: Turn the vacuum cleaner on and push it forward quickly (this only serves to position it) and then slowly move it back to start the cleaning tasks. Repeat this process the necessary number of times.
Time: Going slowly and dedicating the required hours to this activity is essential since the smaller particles take more time to be collected and, in many cases, it is necessary to execute movements repetitively.
State of the device: verifying the good condition and correct installation of the vacuum cleaner and its parts is fairly significant; you should always remember to check the condition of the container as this can directly influence the performance of the machine.
Vacuums are great allies for anyone who likes cleaning and its correct use can extend the life of our products and ornament!
