Vacuum Daily (or At Least Regularly)
Some people are concerned that vacuuming their carpet too often will lead to the breakdown of carpet fibers. One important thing to remember is the fact that the fine dirt and dust that settles into the fibers of your carpet are far more destructive than any quality vacuum would ever be. You should be vacuuming your carpet at least two times a week to keep up with the dirt and debris that accumulates in your carpet fibers.
Don’t Vacuum Fast
During the vacuuming process, when you rush through it, your vacuum simply can’t keep up. If you want to give your carpet a thorough cleaning, you need to slow down. Take your time and spend a little bit longer on each pass to allow your vacuum to remove the debris from your carpet effectively.
Vacuum High Traffic Areas More Often
Everyone has them; high traffic areas throughout their home where more foot traffic is the norm. These areas should be given a little more attention than everywhere else in your home. You may need to vacuum these areas more often to keep them clean. You should never wait until they look dirty to clean them. Vacuum high traffic areas every other day or so for maximum results.
Use the Right Vacuum Cleaner
Not every vacuum is created equal. Some vacuums will work much better at removing debris from your carpet fibers than others. One important thing to remember about your vacuum, is the height of the beater bars. You shouldn’t have them too low, or they could possible cause damage to your carpet. One the flip side, when they are too high, they won’t effectively clean. You should start with the beater bars as high as possible and continue to lower them until they are getting some resistance from your carpet.
