Carpet Cleaning Services LondonYou know that carpet vacuuming is a needed chore, especially when you consider the benefits. It helps you get rid of annoying allergens and preserves your carpet in good condition for time to come.

However, vacuuming is not just a simple chore you should mindlessly go through. Whizzing around with the vacuum cleaner should be done in a more thought out manner. It is necessary to pay attention to some of the most forgotten areas of your home, such as:

  • Windowsills – the window area is full of pollen and a variety of other contaminants from the outside. Especially in spring and summer when you keep the window open most of the time. Vacuuming the windowsills ensures that the air coming in your home is allergen-free. To avoid scratching the surface, you should use the brush attachment.
  • Blinds – much like the windowsills, blinds also develop a lot of dust. When air flows into the blinds, it will blow dust inside the rest of the room. Vacuum the blinds up and down to ensure minimal dust on them. If you have a crevice tool, it will come in handy.
  • Drawers – vacuum-cleaning drawers is not a weekly chore, but they are not spared dust accumulation either. You should be vacuuming them every so often to minimise dust in there. It doesn’t matter if the drawers are in your kitchen or your bedroom. Dust is going to get inside and you don’t want to find your items covered in it the next time you reach there. Add this chore to your big clean-out in order to keep your home spotless.
  • Keyboards – you probably spend a good time on the keyboard every single day. Especially, if you are working from home. According to recent studies, computer and laptop keyboards contain more bacteria per square inch than toilet seats. You should make it a habit of vacuuming these items and wiping them with antibacterial wipes. Use the brush attachment over the keys and then use a cloth to remove the grime.
  • Broom – vacuuming the very cleaning tool used to remove dust may seem like a weird thing to do. However, the broom accumulates plenty of dust particles. Not taking care of those means you will only be redistributing them around the next time you use this tool. You may not even need to use the vacuum cleaner because a quick shake outside is all you need to do.
  • Mattresses – vacuuming the mattress is the best way to reduce dust mites on your bed. Use the upholstery attachment and give the area a good vacuum the next time you are doing your carpet cleaning rounds. Don’t forget to address dust in all the nooks and crannies as they are not protected either.

Do keep these areas in mind the next time you are vacuuming. Make sure you pay some attention to them as well.
