Studies suggest that a person should vacuum high traffic areas within the home twice a week.
How often do you vacuum your home? What motivates you to vacuum? Are your floors cleaner after this?
Addressing vacuuming and what it is doing for your floors is important when considering the cleanliness of your home.
Here, we discuss if vacuuming is enough for your floors.
Let’s say that you have a thick carpet. When you vacuum, you are only removing the dirt or dust that is on the top layer. Anything that is lodged a few inches below the surface may not get picked up, depending on the vacuum.
A room can look nice after you vacuum it, but it might not actually be much cleaner than it was before. Realizing that a vacuum only accomplishes surface cleaning is important, because you will need to learn how to clean beneath the surface or hire someone that has expertise in this area.
We use water or steam to penetrate the carpet fibers deeply so that we can thoroughly clean the carpet. This can help it last longer and even have restorative effects on some carpet that has never been professionally cleaned.
While vacuuming seems like a simple cleaning act, there are many ways to go wrong.
The first way is that you wait until the carpet appears to be dirty prior to vacuuming. This allows the dirt and bacteria to sit on the carpet for days or weeks, making it more difficult to remove. Setting a regular vacuuming schedule and following it will prevent this from happening, regardless of how much or little it is used.
Trying to vacuum quickly can be an issue as well because pushing the vacuum quickly will not allow it to suck up as many particles as if you were pushing it slower. This is important because rushing through this activity is not much better than deciding not to vacuum.
It is clear that vacuuming alone will not completely clean your carpets. A deep clean is needed in order to fully wash the floor of any dirt and bacteria over time.
Our team looks at the best cleaning techniques for each surface and will make a plan on how to clean your carpet based on that. Each home and carpet are different and require a different cleaning approach.
Deep cleaning your carpet should be a routine service that you get done in order to maintain its new, clean look over time.
