Vacuuming 101

Proper vacuuming is the easiest and most effective way to keep your carpet clean. Regular vacuuming can also have the largest impact on the air you breathe by removing dust, dirt, allergens, and particles.

To get the most out of your vacuuming regime, remember these few easy tips:


How Often Should You Vacuum?
As a rule of thumb, you should vacuum at least once a week with a Seal of Approval-certified vacuum cleaner. However, the more foot traffic over your carpet, the more you need to vacuum.

  • A quick once-over doesn’t do much. Slow and steady does the trick.

  • When vacuuming, don’t ignore those corners and crevices where dust builds.

  • “Top-down” cleaning saves you the step of vacuuming again after dusting. Dust blinds, windowsills, and furniture surfaces first and then vacuum away any fallen dust.

  • Remember to replace or empty vacuum bags when they are half to two-thirds full as this improves the efficacy of the vacuum.
