Vacuum Cleaner Maintenance

The job of the vacuum cleaner, whether in a home or office, is to pick up dirt, debris, particulate soil, hair, dander, virtually anything that lands on the carpet and must be removed. In the process, your vacuum cleaner eventually ends up needing a little cleaning attention itself.

When you empty the vacuum collection chamber or replace the vacuum bag, all of that dust, dirt, debris, and hair went into the port that contains the beater bar, and then through a hose, and most likely also through a filter or two.

Keep your vacuum cleaner in great working condition with these simple maintenance tips. Keep it safe and anytime you are working on your vacuum, make sure it is unplugged.

The bag or bin
Some vacuums have a chamber or bin that collects the dirt. If you have that type of vacuum, remove it and empty it frequently, even after each use. Wipe it out if you can and if the type warrants it, rinse it out with water and detergent. If you have a vacuum with a bag, keep an eye on how much dirt it is accumulating. It’s best to replace it when about half full, never more than 2/3 full. If your vacuum bag gets too full, the efficiency of the machine is drastically reduced.

The beater bar
Turn the vacuum over and inspect the beater bar and vacuum inlet assembly. This is where things might get a little gross as you have to physically pull and remove all the hair that has rolled up on the beater bar. Wear gloves. Pull the hair off and keep turning the beater bar until it is completely clean. Use scissors or a small, sharp knife if the hair is difficult to remove with just your bare fingers.

The filter(s)
You may need to refer to your owner’s manual for this. Find the filters and inspect according to manufacturer recommendations. Some filters need to be replaced; others can be cleaned. Air must pass through the filters so keep them in good condition. High-efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) might need more attention than typical filters.

One great way to ensure vacuum cleaner efficiency is to have your favorite cleaning company inspect it the next time they work in your home. Call them today. After all, it pays to call a pro!

Pets and your carpet

As we get into the dog days of summer lets talk about pets and carpeting. From time to time a pet may have an accident on the carpeting. In the summer months with humidity high. You can get odors coming fro the rug. Humidity can reactivate odors. Carpet cleaning with some deodorizer rinsed through the carpeting can help. We have number of different deodorizers that we can use depending on the situation. odors can be difficult to totally remove. Why?

Odors are not just a carpet problem, odors also exist in the pad below the carpeting and in the wood floors below. Urine can damage the wood floors irreparably from time to time. Urine can penetrate into the wood where sanding will not elevaite the problem. If the urine penetrates the wood too deep then the wood will need to be replaced which can be a very expensive undertaking.

Cleaning the carpeting can remove odor from the carpeting but not necessarily from the other 2 areas - wood and pad. Other methods that can be used are a soaking process. This process can be used for concentrated areas. The area is wet down with a deodorizing solution. The area is allowed to dwell and then is extracted with a water claw. This can be very effective for concentrated areas but not whole rooms.
