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 breath by removing dust, dirt, allergens, and particles. As a rule of thumb, you should vacuum at least once a week, but high traffic areas could require more frequent vacuuming.
What happens if I do not vacuum regularly?
Most carpets have a protective shield on them to keep dirt at the surface of the carpet and prevent it from working its way down deep into the carpet fibers. Once dirt gets embedded in the carpet it can act as tiny saws, wearing away and breaking down the carpet fibers every time it is walked across. Once the carpet fibers start to deteriorate, the carpet looses its resiliency, causing it to crush and stay matted. By sticking to a frequent vacuuming schedule you can prevent dirt from ever embedding into the carpet, and keep your carpet looking better and lasting longer.
To get the most out of your vacuuming regime, remember these tips:
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 up.
“Top-down” cleaning saves you the step of vacuuming again after dusting. Be sure to dust blinds, windowsills, and furniture surfaces 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.
Vacuuming in multiple directions will remove the most dirt from your carpet. For example, vacuum first from north to south and then again from east to west.
Along with regular vacuuming, we recommend that all carpets be professionally steamed cleaned with hot water extraction every 12 to 18 months, this will also help to maintain most warranties.
What vacuum should I use on my soft style carpet?
The Soniclean SF-7000 is the number one preferred vacuum for soft style carpets. The Soniclean SF-7000 is recommended to clean premium synthetic fibers as well as natural wool. It is the approved vacuum for Mohawk SmartStrand, Karastan, Shaw Caress, Soft Spring, Tigressa, Stain master, and more carpets.
What makes the Soniclean SF 7000 different?
Ultra-Soft Bristle Roll
While a brush roll is preferred it is not necessary. On conventional vacuums the bristle roll often does more harm than good due to the stiff bristles that can potentially damage your carpet’s fibers, but the SF-7000 uses soft nylon bristles to gently but effectively clean carpet all while maintaining the integrity of your carpet’s fibers.
EZ Push Vent System
The EZ push vent system allows the vacuum to be easily pushed and pulled across plush carpets with a pile length of 1” or shorter. When vacuuming soft surface be sure the vent is open, and when vacuuming hard surface be sure that the vent is closed.
Sonic Cleaning Technology
The SF 7000 is the only vacuum cleaner using patented sonic clean technology to effectively remove imbedded dirt from within the carpet pile through 200 vibrations per second.
