Spring has arrived!! It's time for spring cleaning. How to best vacuum your home, using the attachments properly.
So it has been a long cold winter here in Montreal, and I am confident to say that spring has finally sprung. I have been holding off posting this series of articles to the blog as every time I have thought about posting it's either below zero or I can see snow flakes from my office desk. But now that winter finally looks over, I will share my spring cleaning tips on how to best use your vacuum cleaner. Here in Montreal we have quite the winter, and lots of salt is poured onto our streets causing some very dirty carpets and homes. I can not tell you how many times I see a 15 to 20 year old vacuum and the attachments are brand new because they are not being used! Often times it's because people have not been properly explained how to use each piece. So here is a rundown on how to use each piece for your vacuum cleaner.
Before I begin, I would suggest you take a look at Martha Stewart's printable checklist for a comprehensive list of spring cleaning tips.
If you thoroughly vacuum your home using all of these pieces properly I am certain your home will be on the right path to being as clean and healthy as possible. For people with allergies and asthma I would certainly suggest purchasing a vacuum with True Hepa filtration. Perhaps, I can recommend the Guardian Platinum from Aerus, or even a Central vacuum as dust is siphoned off to a canister often located in a garage or furnace room.
I'll be back later this week on cleaning tips to clean the air inside of your home. Happy Spring Cleaning.
