Who doesn't love the way a room looks when it is freshly vacuumed? Those vacuum lines spaced every foot that make a carpet look like a backgammon board are the tell tale signs that you should ask permission before walking into a carpeted room.
If the neat and tidy look of the room is not reason enough to convince you to make vacuuming a regular part of your cleaning regime, then consider these three reasons:
1. Your carpet will last longer!
Carets that are full of dirt and grit will wear out much faster than carpet than its dirt-free counterpart. When we walk on carpet (with or without shoes), we cause the dry particles of dust, sand and soil to cause tiny, microscopic tears in the carpet fibers. Over time, thousands of these minor abrasions cause the carpet to look dull and worn out.
By removing these carpet damaging particles on a regular basis, you will allow your carpet to last for many more years.
2. Clean Carpet is Healthy Carpet!
Pet dander, dust mite feces and pollen are just a few of the allergens that carpets help remove from the air of your home. To reduce the affects of allergies inside your home, and to improve your indoor air quality, use a vacuum with a HEPA filter system.
HEPA filters trap the microscopic particles that cause allergic reactions in many people that traditional filters do not capture.
3. It's a Mood Booster!
Want to get in a good mood? Then drag out that vacuum! There is research to support the notion that cleaning your home puts you in a better mood; from the sense of accomplishment of a job well done, not to mention the physical exercise associated with cleaning.
