Have you noticed that your vacuum is starting to lose its power, and it’s not very old yet? If you’re like most, you probably reach for your vacuum to clean up any little mess in your home. Vacuums are great cleaning tools, but they have limits and do lose power over time. 

At Delta Chem-Dry, we understand the importance of keeping your clean house, and vacuuming is absolutely necessary to achieve this, but no one wants to compromise the life of their favorite vacuum. Luckily for you, we have a couple of great tips to help you keep your house clean while still maintaining an efficient vacuum!

Don’t Vacuum Moist Carpet

Vacuuming moist carpets is a death sentence for your vacuum. While it may not seem like a big deal, the moisture from your carpet can cause erosion, mildew build-up, and mold growth inside your device. From small spills to major floor leaks below the surface of your carpet, this type of moisture will cut your vacuum’s life for sure. If you do find yourself in a situation where the wet carpet needs to be vacuumed, wait until it is completely dry or contact Delta Chem-Dry to have their professional-grade equipment do the job.

Leave the Deep Cleaning to the Professionals

While vacuums are essential to keeping your home clean, they are not your only ally. Vacuums are great for getting a fair share of dirt and crumbs but are unable to get most of the invisible threats that enter your house. For instance, many allergens that cause your kids to sneeze and have itchy eyes can linger in your home regardless of how many times you vacuum. Vacuums also aren’t made to clean deep down in the fibers of your carpet, getting rid of pet hair and odor which has seeped into the crevices of your flooring.

Know when it is Time to Say Goodbye

It’s hard to say exactly how long a good vacuum will last, but if you felt like your device has lost suction power, don’t be afraid to replace it. While rugs, upholstery, and carpets often get replaced, your trustworthy vacuum can get overused. Even if you have a small family with no pets your vacuum surely gets plenty of wear and tear. Many people cause great damage to their vacuum by using it as their only form of deep carpet cleaning. Save your vacuum and call Delta Chem-Dry for the deep cleaning for every couple of months.

If you are looking to maintain a healthy home you need a vacuum, plus a professional carpet cleaner. Vacuuming is essential to keep your carpets looking great on a daily basis. But, for a truly deep clean that will eliminate all those “accidents” over time that you have forgotten about, trust Delta Chem-Dry to do the job. To expand the life cycle of your carpets and your vacuum, trust the world’s leading carpet cleaning professionals with the job!
