Vacuuming is essential for maintaining your carpets, but did you know that vacuum cleaners can be a breeding ground for bacteria?
Particles can linger inside vacuum cleaner bags for up to two months and whilst your carpets and home may look clean, carpet bacteria stirred into your carpet and the air by your vacuum cleaner can become a worry.
Tip 1 – Empty your vacuum cleaner regularly
Replace your vacuum cleaner bag regularly to ensure that any bacteria picked up is removed from your home definitively. It can be difficult to decipher when to change a vacuum cleaner bag, but as a general rule, replacing when 2/3 full results in an efficient clean, every time. Try not to leave a vacuum bag in longer than two months. Modern bagless vacuum cleaners can be emptied after every use. However tedious, this ensures that dust and bacteria are no longer in your home. Empty the canister outside, and be sure to wash thoroughly each time with a safe non-toxic disinfectant.
