Is vacuuming your home often important? At least once in two months, because, well, healthy people like clean homes (even if the very act of cleaning can be tiresome to most of us) and we all crave to live a healthy life. Basically, it makes your home more presentable and welcoming to you, your family, and friends too.
After each cleaning, you can use a carpet sanitizer or a deodorizer to help eliminate offensive odors from pets, smoking, and cooking. After this sanitizing exercise, your carpets and rugs smell refreshing, leaving your home inviting.
Now… the big question is
How often should I vacuum?
Choosing whether to vacuum your home is dependent on the following factors:
Your household circumstances
Most times the amount of time you vacuum depends on your household circumstances…
Normally a regular area should be vacuumed roughly every week. Moreover, if it’s a high-traffic area, like an entrance of people walking through, stinky shoes and dust from outside coming in, it may be advisable to vacuum every other day.
Another instance is, if you keep pets, then you’d have to vacuum every other day.
Basically, how often you vacuum depends on the amount of dirt in your home. The more people, dirt, and pet you keep, the more often you will have to vacuum.
If you spend more time at home with your family, you also would have to vacuum more often. Because if you and your household are all at work and school then they really won’t be any need to vacuum often.
Your floor type
Most times wooden floors are easy to vacuum because they don’t store dust particles as carpets, so cleaning a little less is okay. But if you use rugs you would have to vacuum, at least 3 days. You may ask, why so? as stated earlier, carpets absorb more dust particle and all kinds of bacteria due to the texture used to make carpets.
Your vacuum type
One important thing to take note of is, what can of vacuum do you have. What I am stressing here is, how powerful your vacuum is?
A vacuum with an excellent suction power, powerful motor, and a good filtration system will do a better job cleaning than a regular bagged vacuum with a poor power motor.
It’s that simple, either you spend a shorter time cleaning more often with high quality, or you spend more time cleaning with a low-quality vacuum, which will you choose?
Finally categorizing what you deem to be daily or weekly cleaning tasks are important.
Moving your furniture should not be seen as the vacuuming task itself. Because this task is only based on the present need, which should not result in daily cleaning. Although having a set time each year, to do the heavy vacuuming duty would be helpful.
Benefits to vacuuming often
The health benefits of vacuuming regularly are really amazing. Normally floor, carpets, rugs hold a lot of dirt that is harmful to the air, leading to allergies which affect the household both man and dog.
A number of these bacteria in the air can be toxic and choking to a human in general. For example, it often creates offensive smell, congested air making it hard to breathe. This is not healthy, especially when you’re using a strong vacuum removing all the dirt from any floor surface.
People with allergies/allergy sufferers would benefit from regular cleaning. Dust particles and air bacteria can cause allergic reactions, asthma reactions, with these defects, your breathing can be easily and negatively impacted. With less dirt and allergies in your home, thanks to your regular cleaning, the lesser chances of these dirt particles affecting your health or enlarging allergic tendencies.
Vacuuming often is vital if you particularly keep pets, but if you have little children. If you have both in your home, then vacuuming often is important for your child’s well-being and health. Just as little children and pets spend most of their time on the floor, especially carpets.
Once you follow the tips suggested above, you should have no problem vacuuming. Ensure to be vacuuming often in your home, so as to keep your family safe and healthy.
Normally after vacuuming your home, it turns out looking clean and sparkling, but not until everybody comes in with enough dust to get you upset. But never to worry you have to have odd day or an even week to vacuum often. Remember it’s only dust particles! Not big stones.
