A clean home is a healthy home and this is why you want tools like your vacuum cleaner to work its hardest. When taken care of and used to its full potential, a vacuum cleaner can do more than just suck up crumbs on the floor. It can help rid your home of dust.
If your vacuum uses a bag, make sure you’re changing it when it’s about 90 per cent full. You’ll have to check it on a regular basis but all that takes is a quick flick of the machine’s door and it’ll be worth it. Not letting it get full will allow the vacuum to sustain maximum suction, which will maintain its cleaning power.
Consider buying a HEPA bag for your vacuum cleaner. HEPA stands for “high efficiency particulate air” and is designed to not allow fine dust particles to go back into the air. HEPA bags do not fit in all models but are a great option for families with asthma or allergies so you may want to see if it’ll work in your machine. Another possibility if you’re in the market for a vacuum cleaner is to buy one with a HEPA filtration system.
You can fully use your vacuum by taking advantage of any attachments it came with or even investing in separate ones, depending on your cleaning needs. There are tools meant to clean ceiling fan blades, ceiling corners and delicate wooden furniture. Attachments don’t simply move dust around but get rid of it. Tricia Devoe, owner of Sears Hometown Parry Sound, advises investing in a Dyson vacuum model if you like attachment options. Dyson provides a bonus cleaning package that comes with tools to clean blinds, mattresses and pet hair.
Keep your vacuum away from moisture. When it sucks up fine particles combined with moisture, they can clog up the machine. If you have a central vacuum system, make sure the tank is not in a moist area.
One simple machine can do a lot for your home so it’s important to choose the right one. For great selection and expert advice, head to Sears Hometown Parry Sound. Call them at 705-746-2191 or visit www.sears.ca.
