You want your carpets to look as nice as possible, and a main part of maintaining healthy carpets is in the type of vacuum cleaner you use. We all wish we could hire a carpet cleaning NYC company more frequently, but you have to do your part on your own as well. Dry dirt is one of the leading causes of wearing down your carpets, because dirt acts like razor blades and cut into the carpet fibers. If you have a vacuum cleaner that not only doesn’t pick up the dirt but causes its own damage to the carpet fiber (with a brush that is too aggressive) then you can simulate a year’s worth of foot traffic within a few weeks of vacuum use.
There are three factors you should consider when you purchase a vacuum cleaner:
- The percentage of dry dirt and soil that it picks up. In order to pass the CRI test, vacuum cleaners need to pick up at least 18% of dirt, while some pick up as much as 82%. Look at this list of CRI approved vacuum cleaners to find one that meets your requirements.
- The damage done to the pile fiber by vacuum brushes that are overly aggressive. Brushes can permanently damage fibers by fraying and disentangling them, so you want this level to be low.
- Health attributes of the vacuum cleaner, such as benefits to indoor air quality and allergen reduction. Sometime these claims are hard to verify, so make sure that your vacuum cleaner doesn’t sacrifice its dirt pick-up for claims of being an allergen reducer.
You want a vacuum cleaner that can do all three well, rather than a cleaner that can do one task but not the other. To keep good care of your carpets, it is important that you vacuum regularly, and hire a professional carpet cleaning NY company to periodically do deep cleanings.Comments (0)
