    How To Vacuum

    To maintain the look, feel, and appearance of your
    carpet you'll need to vacuum on a regular basis.  If 
    you are new to vacuuming, you'll find the tips below
    to help you when it comes to keeping your home clean:

    1.  Before you start, you should always inspect
    the area.  Pick up any objects that could cause
    your vacuum cleaner to clog up.  The smaller objects
    are fine, just as long as they will pass through the
    vacuum.  


    2.  You should check the vacuum bag to ensure
    that is isn't full already.  If it is full, you 
    should go ahead and change it.  A full bag isn't
    going to suck up much dirt, as the power will be
    greatly reduced due to the bag taking up a great 
    deal of storage and limiting the suction.

    3.  You should always vacuum forwards instead
    of going backwards.  Going forward will get the
    job done quicker and you won't wear your cord out
    near as fast.  When going backwards, you also run
    the risk of running back over your cord, which is
    something you don't want to do.

    4.  Be sure that you overlap your strokes
    to ensure that you get out all of the dirt and the
    residue.  You don't want to miss any of the carpet,
    which is why it is important that you overlap your
    strokes.

    5.  You should change your vacuuming
    direction on occasion to reduce any type of matting
    in your carpet.  You can change direction without
    any problems.  Doing this every time you make a
    sweep on the carpet or every other time you vacuum
    will be good.

    6.  On corners, use a damp cloth or a
    crevice tool attachment that hooks up to your
    vacuum cleaner.  This will ensure that you get the
    corners and tight areas good, and they don't 
    stand out from the rest of the carpet.

    7.  You can get rid of dust particles and
    dirt by waving a vacuum wand under your bed.  Doing
    so on occasion will ensure that your bedroom
    stays clean, and smells clean as well.

    For kitty litter on carpets or floors, you should
    use a lightweight vacuum cleaner.  To get deep
    into the fibers of the carpet, you should try
    an upright vacuum cleaner with a power brush.  Kitty
    litter can be a pain in the neck if it gets 
    crushed in the pile or embedded, which is why
    you should get it out as quick as you can.

    Give some thought to purchasing a vacuum cleaner
    with a rotating brush or combination beater and
    brush bar, which will loosen up the dirt in the
    carpet and then suck it out.  This will beat the
    dirt from the fibers and even embedded dirt, which
    will leave your carpet clean and smelling great.

    Whenever you vacuum, you should always be on the
    lookout for straw, thread, and string as it can
    trap debris in the vacuum hose and result in a 
    clog.  These types of hazards are also bad for the
    agitators as well, as they can clog up the suction
    as well, or get tangled up in the agitators and
    cause more problems.

    If you have pets, you should sprinkle some baking
    soda on the carpet before you vacuum.  Let it sit
    for a little while, then vacuum.  The baking soda
    is a lot cheaper than carpet fresheners and it
    does the same thing - only better.

    Vacuuming is very easy to do, and it's something
    that should be done on a regular basis.  You don't
    have to be an expert to vacuum, all you have to
    do is make an effort.  Your carpet will look good
    all the time, and your house will stay smelling
    great - which is reason enough to grab the vacuum
    and take a trip through the house with it.
