How to clean your vacuum cleaner
Your new vacuum cleaner will help keep your home sparkling clean, but you also need to keep your vacuum cleaner clean. Luckily, cleaning your vacuum cleaner from vidaXL is easy. Simply follow these steps:
First, check the manufacturer’s manual for recommendations. There will be instructions on your new vacuum cleaner, so always follow them when you are going to clean your vacuum cleaner.
For bagless models, empty the waste bin and clean the canister with a cloth.
Depending on the manufacturer’s recommendation, clean the filter and canister with warm water. Replace the filter and canister only when they are completely dry.
Clean the outside of the vacuum cleaner with a damp cloth.
You don’t need to clean your vacuum cleaner every time you use it, but it is recommended that you clean it regularly in order to keep it working optimally.
Factors to consider when buying a vacuum cleaner
A vacuum cleaner is a must-have in every home. Whether you live in a tiny flat in the city or a big house in the suburbs, a vacuum cleaner is an absolute must-have to remove dust and other residues from floors and surfaces. However, it is important that you purchase the right vacuum cleaner for your home and needs. Therefore there are a few things you need to consider before purchasing your new vacuum cleaner. Some things you first and foremost need to consider are:
Key technical specifications to account for
There are also some technical features you need to consider once you have identified your needs. These are some of the technical aspects you may wish to consider:
Motor power. The motor power will be indicated in watts, kW or in HP, and two types of motors are usually used: 1-stage and 2-stage. 1-stage motors are characterised by greater airflow while 2-stage has a greater vacuum.
Vacuum power performance. When it comes to vacuum power, you need to look for two indicators: water lift and airflow. The water lift represents the suction force, while the airflow represents the air volume intake.
Noise level. You probably have come across some very loud vacuum cleaners. However, you can also get some vacuum cleaners that practically make no noise. The noise level in vacuum cleaners is expressed in decibels.
Design and structure. You also want to consider the design and structure of your new vacuum cleaner. For instance, we recommend you look at the weight and dimensions, maximum reachable distance and how easy it is to manoeuvre.
Filtration. It is important that your vacuum cleaner has high-efficiency filters that prevent the collected dirt from being released back into the environment. There are different types of filters, so choose one that fits your needs the most.
Supplied accessories. Your vacuum cleaner usually comes with a variety of accessories that can perform different types of suction.
Once you have considered all of these factors, you will be able to choose the perfect vacuum cleaner for you and your home.
Bag or bagless vacuum cleaner
One of the major differences between vacuum cleaners is whether they are bagless or they use a dust bag. For most people, it is a personal preference whether the vacuum cleaner is bagless or uses a dust bag. However, if anyone in your family has an allergy or asthma or you are a bit concerned about the quality of the indoor air in your home, then we recommend choosing a vacuum cleaner with a dust bag. If you choose a bagless vacuum cleaner, you will most likely be exposed to more dust, which is why people with allergies and asthma probably want to avoid bagless vacuum cleaners.
Which shape should I choose for my vacuum cleaner?
When it comes to vacuum cleaners, you usually have two choices when we are talking about shapes: canister models and upright models.
Canister models are the most common types of vacuum cleaners. They lie parallel to the floor and have a flexible hose connecting to the canister. Canisters are generally easier to use on stairs and under furniture, and they are also ideal for vacuuming the car.
Upright vacuum cleaners have a built-in power head, and they are great for cleaning carpets, so if your house has carpet everywhere, an upright model could be a good choice.
Got pet hair on your carpet?
If you have a dog or a cat and a carpet, you probably have had the headache of pet hair that is stuck in the carpet. If pet hair is a problem, then you probably could need a turbo head or perhaps even a power head. Powerheads have a small electric motor in the head unit in order to turn the brush, while a turbo head uses a turbine in the main airflow. It is also a good idea to check the pet hair removal score before you choose your vacuum cleaner.
A power head is also great for generally keeping a dirty carpet clean, as it scrubs the carpet much cleaner than a standard head is able to. Powerheads, on the other hand, can be a little bit too much on your carpet and they may cause too much wear over time.
How to deep clean your house
Deep cleaning your house can feel like an overwhelming task, but it doesn’t have to be too hard or time-consuming. Just pop on your favourite playlist, and your home will be clean in no time. You don’t need to deep clean your home every time you clean, but even the tidiest home needs a good clean from time to time. Let’s take a look at some helpful tips and tricks for deep cleaning your home.
Declutter. First of all, you need to declutter before you start deep cleaning. Make sure you tidy up every room.
Work from the upside down. When tackling surfaces, we recommend starting high. You can start dusting the ceiling, light fixtures, the top of cupboards etc., and then work your way down. A microfibre cloth is great when you’re dusting.
Windows. Next up is windows. Clean both the window frames and the actual windows.
Dust off all surfaces. Next, you will want to dust off all surfaces in your house - from shelves to bathroom sinks to cupboards.
Vacuum. Naturally, you also want to vacuum the entire house. We also recommend that you vacuum furniture as it can collect quite a bit of dust.
Don’t forget the toilet and shower. Give both the toilet and the shower a really good scrub.
Deep clean the floors. Make sure you deep clean the floors with an appropriate cleaner for the surface.
These are just the very basic cleaning tips. Another good tip is moving all furniture to the side so you can really give the house a good scrub, and you probably also want to air duvets, blankets and rugs and wash all the bedding. Naturally, you can also deep clean your oven and other things. But if you follow the above basic steps, you will have a sparkling clean home in no time.
