How to vacuum properly


Before you jump in your car, drive over to or Head Office and smack me over the head with your vacuum cleaner spout – just hear me out. Yes, you have vacuumed your carpets more often than I have had cooked dinners, but between myself and the rest of the team I think we have you covered.

Carpet cleaning can be trickier than you think. The one thing that we have seen is that our customers are very diligent in going backwards and forwards with the vacuum head, but to get the maximum impact you need to go North, South, then East and West. It makes immediate sense now that I’ve said it right? Dirt and grime can hide in a 360 degree angle around the carpet fibre so going backwards and forwards some grime is protected by the underside of the fibre. Work the room north to south, then once complete rotate 90 degrees and repeat the clean East to West. Apply this method to upholstery cleaning too.

Yes, we’ve doubled your work, but your carpets will repay you with years of extra life. It would also be beneficial to get the professional carpet cleaners in occasionally to give your carpets, rugs and upholstery a deep clean and remove any of those unwanted stains.
