Vacuuming for Health: An Easy To Follow Guide

Vacuuming is one of the most important things you can do for your health. By removing dust, dead skin cells, pet dander and other allergens, vacuuming makes it possible for you to breathe easier, rest better and even boost your immune system.

Below is a step-by-step guide to vacuuming like a pro. Be sure to watch the video too. I hope you employ these tips the next time you vacuum.

The keys to vacuuming are to develop your own methodical system so no area goes unvacuumed and to use all the tools at your disposal.

Once you have your system down, you’ll notice your vacuuming time dwindle.

For instance, when I vacuum a room, I start with the edges of the room first. I’ll take my crevice tool, go around the room–vacuuming all the tight spaces as I go along. That way I won’t have to pull out the same tool later in my process, slowing me down.

One of the most important yet rarely used tools on the vacuum is the crevice tool.

The crevice tool makes it possible for you to vacuum between the floor and baseboard or wall.

The crevice tool also helps get into those small or tight areas like between your fridge and cabinets or behind your entertainment center.

Next, I’ll take the brush attachment and use it to vacuum blinds, around windows, baseboards, vent registers and other items whose surface can take gentle abrasion.

From there, I’ll use the upholstery attachment to vacuum things like the sofa and mattresses.

Vacuuming the sofa and mattress with an upholstery attachment to remove all those dead skin cells left behind really makes a difference in allergy relief.

When you have sheets in the wash, it is a perfect time to vacuum your mattress.

Finally, all the attachments are put away and the main brush head of the vacuum is used. Just like I used to as a kid when coloring, I outline first, going around the room and furniture. In order to be even more thorough, you may want to move some furniture if you are able to.

Outline the room, then fill in a slow, methodical manner.

After outlining, in a very systematic manner, I vacuum the rest of the floor being careful to move at a slow pace–about six inches per second. At this pace, the brush head has a chance to hit each fiber several times while suctioning, making for cleaner carpet.

Happy vacuuming!

Home Allergy Relief

HOME ALLERGY RELIEF

Allergy symptom relief is just a click away!

“Cleaning” is to remove soil, dirt, debris from a surface or the air. If you look around your home, do you see soil, dirt or debris sitting on anything? If you do, just know that it’s much worse in areas you can’t see. Perhaps your current cleaner forgot to get that area or they simply never get that area. The lack of thoroughness is contributing to your allergies. Luckily, with Germz Be Gone, allergy symptom relief is right around the corner.

Pro Tip: Most cleaning companies you hire will only clean or wipe things at shoulder height. Depending on the height of the individual, you could be looking at no higher than 5-5 1/2 feet. Be sure to specify the height in whatever agreement you have with them or you may end up disappointed in their results.

The problem is when areas are neglected they become hotbeds for dust and other allergens that will persistently trigger your allergies. Walk through the doorway, and the little bit of wind you create actually disturbs “resting” allergens on the lip of the doors molding, sends them airborne and eventually end up in your respiratory system. A similar concept can be applied to your floors, mattress, sofa and any where else you spend your time. See for yourself: rub a cloth on the top of your door and doorjamb and notice how much dust you knock down (consider it free allergy testing).

Pro Tip: Cleaning companies will not move furniture to dust or vacuum behind or underneath. Sometimes they may have equipment to reach certain areas, but to thoroughly clean an area, the piece will need to be moved. If you want specific areas cleaned, be a good customer and move the furniture yourself. Who knows, you may find that priceless earring, favorite bookmark or remote control if you do. Otherwise, hire Germz Be Gone and we do the heavy cleaning.
