We are cleaners, we love to vacuum.  We like the sound of a fine running machine. We like the clean path made by a properly executed sweeping technique. And, as carpet cleaning experts, we know that pre-vacuuming is the first step a pro will perform in any quality professional steam clean. 

That said, we do understand that YOU may not view vacuuming with the same twinkle in your eye as we do!  That's ok, as most folks think of vacuuming more as a "chore" than a happy start to the day. 

Hopefully we can turn you around to at least liking your vacuum routine a little more if you know the skinny on how and why to vacuum.  Let us show you the way...

Best Techniques for Effective Vacuuming

What is the best way to keep your carpet clean? Of course, proper vacuuming!  A regular vacuuming regimen can have the largest impact on the quality of the indoor air you breathe as well as provide a lovely visual space.

Begin with a quality vacuum cleaner in good working order. HEPA filtration models are best as they filter the incoming air - trapping all those microdust particles and other pollutants - in its filter and exhaling, if you will, clean, filtered air back into your room.  It is worth the extra money to invest in a true HEPA filtration model.  You are getting two benefits - carpet cleaning and air filtration, so go for it. 

Check out your local vacuum cleaner retailer when you are ready to buy. They can offer good advice on the best option for your needs and the needs of your family. Many also office a repair service.  There is no need to purchase a cleaner from a box store and throw it out when it goes bad.  Utilize your local vac store - it's environmentally friendly to repair over replace.
