Vacuuming is a vital task for keeping any carpet healthy, but why exactly do we do it? Not only that, but what are the exact benefits to vacuuming, even if there is no large mess on the floor? Well, we have the answers to these questions and more, all in our latest blog!
First and foremost, vacuuming does the job that most people cannot do with a standard broom—it takes care of all the individual particles in your carpet that you cannot see with your eyes. For example, humans can shed up to 1 million skin cells per hour, which will inevitably fall onto your floors when people move around. In a family of four, this can mean that your carpet can become absolutely littered with skin cells without you even noticing— just because it looks clean does not mean that it is! With this said, vacuuming picks up all of those cells, leaving your carpet free and able to breathe again.
Not only that, but if you have pets, regular vacuuming also does a great job of picking up what they brought in, even if you cannot see it. Things ranging from pet hair and dandruff to mites and fleas can come in via your pests, which can make for a very filthy carpet. Thankfully, vacuuming can take care of all of them in one simple cleaning job.
In addition, regular vacuuming can also improve the air quality in your home. Think of your carpet as a giant air filter, trapping all impurities in the air throughout the day. Well, this filter gets filled up from time to time, and must be cleaned in order to work properly again. The more you vacuum, the more you will notice that the air in your home has become much fresher, leaving you in a blissful aura of self-accomplishment.
Vacuuming may be essential for your carpet, but it does not have to be extensive. Just one, 10-minute vacuum session per week will leave your carpet looking great and you feeling good.
