When you hire Zerorez, you can be sure you’re hiring a carpet cleaner that loves what they do.  Clean carpets are our passion and we want to make sure all of our customers experience the special kind of deep-clean that comes from our patented Zerorez cleaning technology.  But just because we love cleaning your rugs, that doesn’t mean it should be your favorite job.  In fact, for people with busy lives and never enough hours in the day, vacuuming can be a pain.  That’s why it’s important to do it thoroughly and correctly when you do get the chance so that you can justify not vacuuming as often as you probably should.

Tips For Vacuuming Effectively And Efficiently

Vacuuming isn’t rocket science; it’s basically pushing and pulling a machine across your carpeting that does all the work for you.  There are a few things you should know, though, to make sure you get the most from your vacuuming:

  • Prepare the rooms you’re going to be vacuuming to make the job go faster.  Look under furniture for toys, loose change or anything that can potentially clog your vacuum.  Also, you should move extension cords, area rugs or any other impediments that can slow down your vacuuming.  
  • If possible, vacuum your carpeting in two directions.  Vacuum the whole thing back and forth in one direction and then repeat but in the direction that is perpendicular to the first (think of a grid).  This will lift and twist the fibers of your carpets in two directions, which will make the dirt easier to suction up.
  • Choose the right vacuum and attachments.  You don’t have to buy a $500 vacuum cleaner to get good results; you can buy one that is significantly less expensive that has the same features as the expensive ones, including HEPA filters and a variety of attachments.  It is important that you use your attachments to get every part of your home clean.  Crevice tools and nozzles of varying sizes will allow you to clean areas of carpeting that are dust collectors, including where baseboards meet carpeting and on stairs.  

Tips For Prolonging The Life Of Your Carpeting

Vacuuming isn’t all there is to carpet care.  There are some other things you can do to make it look good and last for as long as possible.  Keep curtains closed when you’re not using a room to keep carpeting from fading prematurely.  This is especially important in southeastern Nevada, where the sunshine can be pretty intense.  Use furniture coasters under heavy pieces of furniture to keep them from making permanent dents in the fibers.  Don’t roll or pull heavy objects across your carpeting.  Try not to use harsh chemicals on or near your carpeting, especially chemicals that can bleach or stain.  And, most importantly, call the best carpet cleaner in Las Vegas, NV, Zerorez, for a twice-yearly deep carpet cleaning.
