With the enormous range of vacuum cleaners on the market, how do you choose what is best for your needs?
Is the price the best way to determine? What else should you consider?
Is it enough to get one that sucks – or will it suck?
How do you know?
In this video, I explain what to look for when you are considering vacuum cleaners.
Research was done by Dr Peter Dingle who found that a quick vacuum over your floors was not enough to get a good clean happening.
It is important to spend good minute on every 1m square of carpet. By doing this just once every six weeks, you will be cleaning your carpets far better than if you did a quick vacuum over the house every week.
That is a lot of time in one small area, and if your house is fully carpeted, then you will be spending a LOT of time vacuuming.
What I recommend:
- Create a list which sequences the carpeted rooms in your house
- Each week, vacuum one room “in detail” – and lightly vacuum (as you used to) the other rooms
- Rotate the focus room each week
In this way, all of your carpets get a thorough vacuum, and you don’t spend every waking moment vacuuming 😉
