Vacuum Regularly

Vacuum at least once a week. This will help to remove dust and allergens from your home, which can aggravate allergies. Vacuum the furniture and upholstery, as well as the floors. This will reduce the amount of dust in your home. If you have a pet, vacuum once a day, especially around their bedding.


Don't Use the Same Brush for Different Surfaces

Don't use the same brush for different surfaces. For example, you should not use a brush with a long handle to vacuum your hardwood floors. This will just pick up all the dirt and dust and carry it back onto your hardwood floors. You should use a brush with a short handle, or even better, a broom.


Consider a Vacuum with a HEPA Filter

Vacuums with a HEPA filter can help you avoid breathing in allergens and other debris that may be in the air. If you have allergies, this is especially important, because vacuuming can cause an allergic reaction. The following vacuums are Certified HEPA:

    If you have a cordless vacuum, it's important to charge it after each use. If you have a corded vacuum, unplug it when not in use. Vacuums can also be used as an air purifier. If you have a vacuum with a HEPA filter, it will remove allergens and other particles from the air. You can also vacuum your mattress and pillows to help keep dust mites and other allergens at bay.


    Keep your vacuum clean and well-maintained.

    Vacuum cleaners are like cars. They need maintenance and should be checked for dust, dirt and debris. Vacuum cleaner bags should also be changed periodically to avoid any buildup of dirt in the vacuum cleaner. Dust and dirt can clog the vacuum cleaner or cause it to lose suction. If your vacuum cleaner is not picking up dirt, it might be time to get it serviced. We service the following brands:
