“Our goal is to help you keep your home clean and looking nice for as long as possible. We will cover a few basic things like area rugs, air filters, and vacuuming.”
The best thing you can do is stop the dirt before it gets in your home. One of the best ways to do this is by putting down rugs at entrances to your home, as well as transitions from carpet to any hard surface. This will both reduce the amount of dirt getting in your home, and keep some of those heavy traffic areas from getting smashed down.
This is a good example of a heavy traffic area and entrance to the home. This is just inside the front door. This is also an intersection of the bottom of the stairs, the living room, and pathway into the kitchen. This is a great place for a rug. You can see the difference between the left side where the carpet has been cleaned and is lighter vs. on the right side where it is still dirty.
Replace Your Furnace Filters Often
On the left you cannot see the light through the filter, on the right you can see light coming through the filter. You can get a new filter at the hardware store.
You don’t need an expensive vacuum. If it works properly and is maintained it should do the trick. Be sure you change the bag or empty the canister when it is 2/3 full. Clean or replace filters according to the instructions that came with your vacuum. If you need help figuring some of this out, I am happy to help!
Regular vacuuming is one of the most important things you can do for your carpet. When carpet is not regularly vacuumed, dirt will work its way to the base of the fibers, breaking them down and wearing the carpet out prematurely. It is important to properly set the height of your vacuum. The brush should lightly touch the fibers separating them and allowing air to flow through pulling dust particles out of the carpet.
