Our Bissell carpet cleaners can help improve indoor air quality, but using them efficiently is important. Follow these tips when using your Bissell carpet cleaner to make your floors spotless while increasing the safety and health of your facility.
- Before running your vacuum, remove clutter from the floors and anything that can jam the cleaner.
- Take your time — rushing through the vacuuming process won’t give you the results you need. Go slowly so your vacuum can suck up the maximum amount of dirt and dust. This also gives the vacuum time to properly agitate the carpet and free more dirt for removal.
- Begin vacuuming from the corner of the room that is farthest from the door. Work your way across the room, vacuuming left to right and front to back. This will ensure that all dirt and dust is removed from your carpets, and no footprints will be left behind on your nice work.
- Don’t forget to clean the edges of the room! If the room is large, tackle this task first to get it out of the way. This work can be tedious, but it is important for keeping your carpet in tip-top shape.
- If you have wood floors, talk to our team about the best vacuums for your needs. We are happy to recommend vacuums that won’t scratch your floors.
- Adjust the height of your vacuum when moving between cleaning hardwood floors, rugs and carpets.
- Once may not be enough for high-traffic areas. Go over the carpet multiple times using a crisscross pattern to really ensure you pull up all the debris and dirt possible.
- Create a schedule and stick to it. Vacuuming should be a regular part of your cleaning routine. Low-traffic areas can be vacuumed once a week or daily, but high-traffic areas may need to be vacuumed more often.
- If you notice a stain while vacuuming, treat it with a spot cleaner immediately. This will enhance the results of vacuuming and keep your carpet or rug in better condition. Use a commercial carpet shampooer or commercial carpet extractor to tackle tough spots and stains.
