4 Quick and Easy Tips to Save Time Vacuuming

Folks in Erie, CO know how much of a chore vacuuming can be, especially after you’ve been shut in for a while thanks to another hard Colorado winter. While vacuuming certainly isn’t what you’d call fun, there are a few things you can do to make the job a bit easier and less of a chore every time you have to make the rounds with the vacuum cleaner again.

Tip #1: Clean Up As You Go

We all know you have to vacuum every once in a while to get the dust, crumbs, and other things that happen as a part of day to day life, but one way you can make that a chore a little easier is just to pick up trash and other things a little at a time as you go.

Having toys, food containers and other things in the way only makes it harder and more time consuming once you’ve gotten the vacuum out and you’re ready to go, so a simple way to save some time is just to pick up a little in your spare time.

Tip #2: Use Your Attachments

Most vacuums nowadays come with a variety of extra attachments, brushes, and cleaning tools. The trick to efficiently vacuuming your home is to use these for their intended purposes.

A brush attachment is good for getting dog hair out of furniture and fabric and the hose attachments make cleaning in hard to reach places a lot easier.

At Household Solutions Erie we know that attention to those little details can make all the difference when it comes to cleaning your home. Using all the tools you have available can take your home cleaning to the next level.

Tip #3: Keep Your Vacuum in Great Shape

Nothing’s worse than trying to vacuum and realizing your vacuum cleaner just isn’t picking up like it should. What many people may not realize, is that maintaining your vacuum is surprisingly easy.

All you have to do is check the canister, the hoses and brush from time to time to make sure they are clean, free of blockages and working properly. For the hoses, make sure they are clear of debris and able to suction properly.

For the canister, make sure to empty it out regularly and that any connections are secure and free of blockages so that all that dirt you pick up stays where it should. Lastly, the brush on your vacuum tends to collect hair and debris as you vacuum. A simple solution is to remove this debris every so often before it builds up and causes your vacuum not to perform. A simple pair of scissors can cut hair free from a roller brush and cleaning out from where the suction happens will keep things running smoothly.

Tip #4: Keep Your Furry Friends Groomed

Anyone living in Erie, CO who owns dogs will know just how quickly dog hair can build up inside your home. Even for smaller dogs as well as other pets, hair buildup over time is a thing, particularly if they are kept inside during the colder parts of the year.

One way to lessen the amount of vacuuming you need to do is to brush and groom your animals regularly. This will reduce the overall amount of pet hair and make it so that you don’t have to vacuum as frequently.
