I've always liked vacuuming.
It's like the quick fix to any messy room disaster.
Just push stuff aside and vacuum.
You know those times when company is on the way...
and the house isn't quite ready?
That's when I quickly pull out the vacuum!
A quick vacuum and fluffing the pillows
makes the house look 99% better!
In the last year, I've purchased 3 disappointing vacuums.
Our vacuum of nearly 8 years died, but I think it really died a year early...
because it had done such a terrible vacuuming job for a while.
so, I bought a cheap vacuum online.
It was small but still sucked a little. :)
And then 3 months after we had it, it died!
So, I tried again...and again. I was ultimately disappointed.
Well, BISSELL has rekindled my faith in vacuums!
The PowerGlide Pet Vacuum with Lift-Off Technology is amazing!
We don't have pets, but the owners of this rental did...
and we ALL have pet allergies.
So getting a vacuum that is powerful has helped us to breathe better,
and not to swell up or itch when we lay on the carpet. Yay!
How often do you vacuum?
I've heard a good rule of thumb is to vacuum as many times per week
as the # of people that use the room. So, there's 5 of us...
so vacuuming 5 days a week in the shared family room seems
like a good idea. But bedrooms only 1 or 2 times a week.
If you have crawling babies...I always vacuumed daily.
But I love vacuuming! Favorite chore ever.
Besides vacuuming the bulk of the carpet or rugs...
here are 5 places I never would have thought to clean with a vacuum!
#1 Edges of carpet and floor base boards with a crevice tool,
even around those electric outlets...you know how dust can build up on them?
Oh yeah, that carpet needs it bad!
#2 Air vents.
Let's get real. Our vents are on the ceiling...and I never
bust out the ladder to scrub them clean.
But a vacuum can suck all the fluff out of them easy!
(and in the dryer vent too!)
If they are on the floor, just pop off the vent and suck out the entire thing.
Now, maybe no one will notice and say "my my, your vents are positively radiant!"
But, they are likely to notice if there is a fuzzy science experiment growing on them.
#3 In and around furniture.
I take the hose and crevice tool and vacuum out the upholstered chairs regularly!
And the hose is long...so that means, I can vacuum under nightstands,
beds, tables, desks and other heavy objects!
#4 Windows, crown molding and door frames!
Yes, same as the floor boards...all that dust settling.
And...windows get filled with little insect carcasses around here. Gross right?
I'm not touching them...in comes the hose to save the day!
#5 Lift off technology for stairs or even the car, which desperately needs a cleaning!
Here's another killer feature.
There's a "brush" button...meaning, you can click it and the roller brush wont roll.
Therefore, it transitions beautifully onto wood, tile or laminate flooring!
I've always dreamed of one machine that would do all the floors! Dream come true.
