Have you noticed that you seem to have less and less time available each week to complete your house cleaning chores? Whether it’s ensuring the trash cans are emptied, the bathrooms are clean, or the floors are vacuumed. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time.
And while this article can’t do much about freeing up your schedule, below are some great tips to help you make the most of the vacuuming time you are able to arrange.
One, Two, Three, Next!
If you can’t remove a stain from your carpet with three passes of the vacuum cleaner then move on and deal with it separately.
The reason not to pass it more than three times is for your carpet’s protection. When you are vacuuming, the carpet fibers are being pulled out of the root of your carpet and moved around in every direction in your efforts to clean them. If you do this too often, you can cause serious damage to your carpets and reduce their lifespan.
The Right Attachment for the Job
If you find yourself moving furniture to access hard to reach spaces or you have taken advantage of the Groupon Coupons page for Nordstrom Rack and have furnished your home with stylish rugs, it’s important to use the right attachment for the job.
Find out where you stored the bag of attachments which came with your clearer and find the ones which can help. For example, the long nosed attachment will allow you to reach spaces without having to move furniture, which an attachment without bristles will be best suited to cleaning your rugs faster.
Keep Dirt Away
Of course, the best way to keep your carpets clean is by preventing dirt from entering your home in the first place.
The best way to do this is to install a rule where there are no shoes allowed in the home, with them all being left at the front door. If you like, you can even provide guest and family members with slip-on temporary house-shoes.
If you don’t want to ask your guest to take off their shoes, install a hard metal shoe mat at outside your front door to encourage your guests to wipe their feet along with a softer mat inside your home to remove any rere duce dirt and debris.
That’s right! If you are vacuuming your home more than twice a week then you are wasting your time and reducing the lifespan of your carpets. Instead, utilize your time for other chores and stick with vacuuming your carpets no more than twice a week.
Of course, if you are preparing for a party then it’s a good idea to clean in advance and after to keep your carpets in good shape.
When it comes to cleaning, these are some great tips which can help you make the most of the precious time you are able to set aside for the chore to keep your home clean.
