Tips for better cleaning of your house
Here are some of the most useful tips that will surely help you in the vacuuming process.
Saving excess work:
It is one of the most important steps involved in reducing your hard work. If you allow footwear inside your home, then it will lead dirt, dust and other such elements to spread everywhere in your home. Thus you have to vacuum everywhere daily. This situation can be avoided if you restrict footwear to a particular place and have a mat over there, where they can be wiped. This will stop the dirt from spreading, thus instead of vacuuming multiple times, you can easily clean the collected dirt at once and at a single place.
Keep an eye on bag/canister:
Before starting to clean always check that how much the bag/canister is full. If it has reached to three-quarters of its capacity, change or empty it depending on your cleaner. While it’s not mandatory to start with an empty canister or bag but starting with one makes cleaning much more effective. Also, waiting for you bag/canister to full may lead to clogging of hose and other parts. Thus it reduces the suction power of vacuum, and the cleaner does not work up to its maximum efficiency. So always keep an eye on the level of your canister/bag and change it timely.
Dust your home before vacuuming:
While it is a habit of most of the people to dust off their home when they are done the vacuuming. This is completely wrong as when you dust all the dust which was settled on surfaces of blinds, baseboards or books won’t be captured by rag or duster and will fall on the floor. Now this will end on the ground and make the vacuumed floor look dirty, so to avoid this situation I recommend you to dust your home before you start cleaning, as this can eliminate the chances to vacuum your floor again.
