Most of us don't have the time to spend several hours thoroughly cleaning our carpet. We barely have time to run the vacuum a few times a week. That is why it is so important to maximize the results with effective solutions that save us time and effort. Today at Cleanpro Portland we want to share a few of our best vacuuming tips to clean your carpet faster and better.

Real Carpet Cleaning Solutions

While for some, vacuuming two to three times a week may be enough to keep their carpet clean,  the reality is, that for the majority of the population, that is not enough. Over time, the carpet becomes filthy looking and deteriorated even if we vacuum regularly. The fact is, although vacuuming is necessary, it cannot sufficiently maintain your carpet on its own. This is especially true when it comes to carpets that are in constant use and that experience regular traffic. If you have children or pets in your home, chances are, you fall into that category.

Don't Over Stress About the Stains

The number one thing you should keep in mind before vacuuming is to not to stress about stains. It is a very common mistake to get overly preoccupied with the stains and large spots of soot that are hard to get rid of. If you do this you might end up spending so much time centralizing on the stains and focusing solely on getting them out, that the rest of the carpet gets overlooked and by the time we get to vacuuming it, we rush it.

Stains Are Best Dealt With Through Patience

Soak the stain with a stain remover, and wait, it may take a few hours or even a day or so but let it soak. There are many different stain removers, most of which you can make yourself. Check our blog for a few ideas on different homemade stain removers and for older stains you can use this recipe.  Remember that there are stains that definitely need more expert solutions, in those cases don´t stress, and leave them to a professional.

Use the Vacuum Accessories

Vacuuming your carpet regularly is essential, and doing it correctly is even more crucial to maintaining your carpet in great conditions. Although you have probably vacuumed millions of times, it is still helpful to get a friendly reminder on how to vacuum and when to use what tools. Usually, vacuums come with a few accessories, if you use them correctly your carpet will look better and cleaner than if you just do a regular vacuuming round. One common tool that vacuums have is a long tube known as a cleaner crevice. This long tube is perfect for cleaning the corners and edges of the carpet that are against the walls. These areas are usually filled with dirt and other powders that accumulate in the crease, created between the carpet and the wall. Another very handy tool that vacuums normally have is a flat or inclined piece that can either be adjusted into the cleaner crevice attached to the vacuum itself. This tool is very helpful for cleaning under sofas, desks, and other furniture that has hard to reach spots under it, where grit and dust bunnies usually build up.

Vacuum Correctly

Now, when it comes to vacuuming correctly, the best way to make sure you suck up as much dirt and filth out of the carpet is to start at the wall opposite from the entrance of the room and vacuum from left to right, then from top to bottom in that same section, before moving on to the next. It may seem like it takes longer to vacuum this way, but it is a greatly effective way of making sure you thoroughly clean the carpet, and that as much dirt as possible is absorbed so that it does not accumulate and create an even harder to clean, filthy looking carpet. If you don't have much time to vacuum, then  dedicate at least one day a week to vacuuming using this more intense method, and vacuum how you normally would regularly at least 2-3 times a week.
