If your home is like many relative households, its floors are often a mess. I mean, it’s not that these families never clean the house—they do it every year for our annual spring clean-up and they make sure to vacuum once or twice a week. But when you have kids (and pets) running around, sometimes it’s not just easier to get down on your hands and knees and vacuum instead of standing over an overflowing dustpan while trying not to let anything fall under the couch in one of our rooms. So, if you’re like these families and you are wondering how best to clean your home with a vacuum cleaner, keep reading!
The first thing you have to do is remove everything from the floor.
Remove everything from the floor. Remove any furniture, rugs, or other items from the floor that might be blocking the vacuum cleaner’s path. If you have an area rug lying on top of your hardwood floors and want to clean it up before vacuuming, make sure you remove it first!
Remove clutter from your home. At this point in our cleaning tips series, we’re going over how best to remove clutter from your home so that when you do get around to using those fancy new tools—like our favorite vacuum cleaners—they can do their job without getting hung up on anything else (or worse). So if anything is laying around that could potentially ruin their performance (and/or break), then get rid of it now!
Dust the room first.
Before you start cleaning your home with a vacuum cleaner, it’s important to do some dusting. Vacuuming will help pick up debris and debris that you missed when dusting. It also helps remove allergens and other particles from the air in your home.
Do a preliminary vacuum.
Use the hose attachment to vacuum lampshades, curtains, and another hanging décor.
Clean baseboards and corners with the crevice tool. Vacuum upholstered furniture with the upholstery tool. Vacuum carpets and rugs with the carpet/floor tool Clean lampshades and other hanging décor.
The lampshade and other hanging décors in houses are made of glass. These pieces are very fragile, so you want to be careful when cleaning them with a vacuum cleaner.
The best way to clean lampshades is by using an attachment that has a long extension wand with soft bristles on its end (this is where the Prolux 2.0 commercial vacuum with the deluxe 1 1/2-inch tool kit is most effective). This can be used for dusting both the surface of the shade as well as any dust that may have settled inside it during storage or shipping time (if you ever purchased an item online). You should also use this attachment if there are any cracks or chips in your lampshades because these will become exposed once they’ve been cleaned off properly! To remove grime from all surfaces, try using warm water first before applying soap directly onto them; this will help loosen up any stuck-on dirt easier than just using one product alone.
Vacuum upholstered furniture.
The first thing to do when cleaning your upholstered furniture is more than likely going to be to vacuum the floor beneath it. But if you want a deeper clean, then consider using an attachment that has a rotating brush head for dusting and other areas in your home. This will help get rid of any dirt that may have been missed by previous vacuums, which can make all the difference between having a clean house and not!
Work in a back-and-forth pattern
Vacuuming is a good way to clean your home, but it can be tricky. The best way to do it is by working in a back-and-forth pattern. This will ensure that you get all the dirt on the surface of your floor, as well as under furniture and other objects.
One way to make sure you’re covering all surfaces with this method is by moving at least three times around an area before starting again with another pass over it – this will allow for better coverage of smaller areas where dust has gathered (like behind cabinets).
Move on to carpets and rugs
Now that you’ve gotten the floors clean, it’s time to move on to carpets and rugs.
Vacuuming your carpets can be a little trickier than vacuuming the floor. You’ll need an attachment for this job (which is also useful for cleaning upholstery) and some crevice tool attachments as well.
When vacuuming your carpet or area rug, use the narrow head attachment on your vacuum cleaner first; then use an upholstery attachment on high power when you’re done with your main flooring area. Use these tools together so they don’t clog up each other; otherwise, they could get stuck in between cushions!
Get into corners and along baseboards.
The crevice tool is ideal for getting into corners, along baseboards, and upholstery. The brush tool is best used to clean hard-to-reach spots like light switches and outlets. Use it on furniture as well as walls, drapes, and floors around the house. The upholstery attachment removes pet hair from your sofa or chairs so you can stay stylish while staying clean!
Clean stairs and landings last.
It’s easy to think that the best way to clean your home is with a vacuum cleaner, but this is not always true. Many people find it harder than they thought to clean using a conventional machine. If you want to get the most out of your cleaning efforts and maximize their effectiveness, then use these tips:
Use special attachments for stairs or landings. These include brushes that can be attached directly onto the hose so they can reach deeper into cracks and crevices between floorboards; dusting brushes that are designed specifically for this purpose; crevice tools that help remove dirt from hard-to-reach areas such as under carpets or behind furniture legs; upholstery glovers which help pick up pet hair on furniture legs without getting messy yourself; lightweight vacuums ( portable versions) which are ideal for small apartments where space isn’t much issue but still need thorough cleaning now and again. All these tools have been available for you in your Prolux 2.0 commercial vacuum with the deluxe 1 1/2-inch tool kit.
To sum up, the best way to clean your home with a vacuum cleaner is to start at the top and work your way down, moving from room to room, and removing as much clutter as possible beforehand. This ensures that you’re vacuuming systematically so that all areas are cleaned thoroughly and efficiently. There’s no need for special equipment or expensive tools—just simply follow these simple steps!
