Let me guess, you just bought a vacuum and are frustrated already with it losing power. This is such a common thing! Most people grab a vacuum cleaner the second a mess happens in the home. However, it’s important to understand that vacuums do have limits and will start to wear out. Temecula Valley Chem-Dry knows the ins and outs of keeping your home healthy and clean and is a big supporter of consistent vacuuming. However, it’s hard not to feel frustrated when your new vacuum is already starting to lose its abilities. That’s why we compiled a few tricks to keep your home healthy and clean and make your vacuum last longer.

Never Vacuum Moist Carpet

The death of your vacuum begins with moist carpet. Seriously. Moisture can cause mildew build-up, mold growth inside your vacuum, and erosion. Some people will vacuum up over small spills, or even major leaks. Your vacuum will die much faster if you are treating it to moist conditions. The best thing to do if your carpet is in need of vacuuming while wet is to wait until it is completely dry, or call in the professionals at Temecula Valley Chem-Dry.

When to Get Rid of Your Vacuum

There are a lot of things that influence the lifespan of your vacuum. However, if you feel the suction power is lost it is time for a replacement. Some homeowners hang onto their vacuum for longer than they hang on to rugs, upholstery, and carpets! There is a lot of overuse and abuse on those poor machines. When your vacuum is the only source of deep cleaning that your carpet receives your vacuum will not last very long. To lengthen your carpet and vacuum life have your carpet professionally cleaned once every 6 months or so.

Leave the Deep Cleaning to the Professionals

Vacuums are perfect for cleaning up dirt, crumbs, and daily messes. However, there is more out there to keep your home healthy and clean. Invisible threats and mildew can grow deep within your carpet pad. Allergens can linger in your carpet causing your family to have itchy eyes or sneeze, even after you vacuum. Professional carpet cleaning handles pet hair, pet urine, allergens, and harmful dust that seeps deep into the fibers of your flooring.

Vacuuming is essential to keep your floors looking clean on a daily basis, and help your carpet last longer, however, a professional carpet cleaning is needed to lengthen the life of your carpet and vacuum!
