The best way to keep your carpets clean in between your regular professional carpet cleaning is to run your vacuum on a regular basis which should be daily depending on the amount of traffic that comes through your house. The vacuum is an appliance that all homes across America has and uses suction to pick up the dirt, dust and debris that is brought in and on the carpet. All the dirt and debris makes its way in the house on peoples shoes or pets paws that come through the door. Depending on the amount of people or pets you have in and out of your house will depend on the amount of vacuuming you might need. Even if you don’t have a lot of traffic you still have debris that is circulating in the air that can be landing on the carpets. Vacuuming is the best way to get rid of it, but can it be making you sick in your own home?

Leading Carpet Cleaning explains how vacuuming can make you sick and what you can do to prevent it.

How does Vacuuming Cause you to get Sick

When you use a vacuum, you are stirring up the dust, dirt, debris and bacteria in the carpet and sending it in the bag or canister depending on the kind of vacuum you have. The air that is being sucked up also has bacteria in at like the kind that causes the flu. The way that most people assume this is being taken care of is through a filter. The filter is supposed to stop the majority of the dust and bacteria from spreading around the home. The problem is that most people overlook the cleaning of the actual vacuum and the filters. When the air is dirty and bacteria filled, it can cause the viruses and bacteria to spread among the family. It can also send dust into the air that can cause people who suffer from allergies and asthma to have flare ups and breathing difficulties.

How to Stop the Vacuuming from Spreading Through the Air in your Home

Make sure you clean the bag out and replace it with a new one or clean out the canister. You also want to be sure that the filters are cleaned with water and left out to dry all the way before you use the vacuum again. This is to ensure that the dust does not get thick and block the filter. You should also be sure to have your carpets cleaned by a professional to get a good deep clean to the carpets that is beneficial in removing the excess dirt debris and bacteria.
