How to Get the Most Value From Vacuuming

Regularly vacuuming your carpet is really important for the maintenance of your carpet and for the indoor air quality of your home, which affects your health. Asthma is one of the nation’s most chronic health conditions, affecting more than 26 million people in the US. Vacuuming is especially critical for these sufferers as it helps to reduce the number of irritating particles in the air. In order to get the most value from vacuuming it’s important to: 1️⃣ Choose a vacuum with a HEPA filter (want to make sure it’s a true HEPA, not just HEPA like or HEPA type), which are more efficient at trapping small particles in the air. 2️⃣ Vacuum over the same area as many as 8 times. 3️⃣ Change the bags when ½ full for optimum suction capacity (and definitely by the time it’s ⅔ full). 4️⃣ Vacuum often! The frequency can depend on your lifestyle but it’s typically recommended to vacuum at least once a week or twice a week if you live in a household with someone who suffers from asthma. 5️⃣ Keep up with regular professional carpet cleanings (every 6-18 months).
