Attention! These are the 10 biggest mistakes when vacuuming


 Vacuuming is one of the things we do without thinking. And that's exactly what takes revenge! Here are the biggest mistakes in vacuuming. Please avoid immediately!


Are you one of those people who find it extremely satisfying when the vacuum cleaner noisily sucks in dust and dirt? I'm sure I'm not alone in this. Vacuuming is simply one of the most efficient household chores. Provided it's done right. And this is exactly where some traps lurk. Because as simple as vacuuming looks, things can go wrong.


That's why I took a closer look at the matter for you and discovered fatal mistakes when vacuuming that should definitely be avoided.


# 1 Just vacuum

Do you just start vacuuming and vacuum everything that's still standing around? Or worse, you vacuum before you dust?


Stop it! If you only suck around chairs and the like, you won't catch a lot of bugs at all. Not to mention the dust that falls on the floor when you wipe the surfaces. The consequence of your premature drive: the room is full of dust faster than you can pull the vacuum cleaner through the apartment.


The first step in vacuuming is therefore: First dust everything that is on top. The dust clouds that trickle onto the floor can then be sucked away. Before vacuuming, clear the floor first.


Means: Chairs on the tables (you can also vacuum the undersides of the feet) and clear up plants that are on the floor. If possible, you should first knock out carpets outside and then vacuum them.


# 2 Pull on the vacuum cleaner (cord)

I'm definitely one of those people who push the vacuum cleaner cord to the limit. I pull and tear at it to get to the last corner. Although I actually know that the cable length is no longer acceptable. I am doing nothing good for the vacuum cleaner or the socket.


Therefore, from today on: Change the socket in between and make sure that the cable always has enough play. If you don't have a socket nearby, you need an extension cable.


Or: You buy a cordless vacuum cleaner. This finally puts an end to the cable problem. 


# 3 Push the vacuum cleaner instead of pulling it

Go inside for a moment: How do you suck? Do you listlessly push the vacuum cleaner in front of you or do you lovingly pull it towards you? The former is wrong! Because that's how you keep pushing the dirt and dust. The right thing to do is to pull the vacuum cleaner towards you, because then it will also vacuum thoroughly.


This is particularly evident with carpets. When pulled, the vacuum cleaner really sticks to the surface and can fully utilize its suction power. When pushing, however, he only stumbles over the carpet.


# 4 Use wrong attachment

Speaking of carpets - this is where the next mistake lurking when vacuuming: You are using the wrong attachment. With high-quality vacuum cleaners, there are various attachments for carpets, upholstered furniture or other surfaces. There are also small corner brushes that you can use to clean up narrow spaces.


So don't be too lazy in the future to change the attachments, because that's the only way to vacuum clean.


# 5 Wrong order when sucking

Before I thought about vacuuming properly, I did the following. I went into the room with the vacuum cleaner and sucked in front of me until I got to the corners. Then I changed the room. Only now do I know that this is not the best way to really remove all dust.


It is better to start in the corners and then, as described above, gradually pull the vacuum cleaner towards your body. You won't miss a single job.


By the way: You should first vacuum places that are often forgotten, such as the space under the cupboards. Experience shows that this is where most of the dust mice live.


# 6 Change vacuum cleaner bags too rarely

Your vacuum cleaner sounds weaker over time and somehow doesn't seem to vacuum as thoroughly anymore? It's not his fault, it's yours! Because usually a bag that is too full is to blame for the loss of suction power.


You should change the vacuum cleaner bag every 3 months in a small apartment. If you vacuum a lot or have pets, you should replace the bag more often.


In between, just check how full the vacuum cleaner bag is. If it is full, then out with it and in new!


# 7 Do not replace vacuum cleaner filters

The loss of suction power cannot be due to the bag that is too full? Then an overly contaminated engine filter could be the problem. In many vacuum cleaners, the filter is located underneath the vacuum cleaner bag, so it has to be removed before changing. If it is completely dusty, it must be replaced. Important: pull the plug first! By the way, you can order replacement filters for your vacuum cleaner model online. The loss of suction power cannot be due to the bag that is too full? Then one could too strong contaminated engine filters can be the problem. In many vacuum cleaners, the filter is located underneath the vacuum cleaner bag, so it has to be removed before changing.


# 8 Incorrect height adjustment

Do you have back pain after vacuuming ? Then you have most likely not set the height correctly. Many vacuum cleaner tubes can be adjusted in height like a telescopic rod.


Before you start, you should check which altitude is comfortable for you. You shouldn't have to hunch back when vacuuming, you should be able to stand upright. Before you start, you should check which altitude is comfortable for you. You shouldn't have to hump when vacuuming.


# 9 Going too fast

There are a lot of black streaks in our apartment because the vacuum cleaner thundered against it when I was vacuuming. Are you feeling the same? Then you should use the device a little more gently in the future. Make sure that you don't pull the vacuum cleaner too quickly and forcefully.


This way you avoid that it hits the walls or even tips over. Careful handling extends the life of your vacuum cleaner.


# 10 Having the wrong model

Do you hate vacuuming like the plague? Maybe you just don't go together. Personally, for example, I don't get along very well with my friend's vacuum cleaner model. I like mine very much. If you want to buy a new vacuum cleaner, you should do your research beforehand and define what is important to you.
