Article - Carpet Cleaning Tips - HousekeepingChannel.com
I came across this article about vacuuming and carpet cleaning, and was a bit disappointed, as it is all about dirt! Not a word about the true nature of vacuuming!
Completely absent, is any mention of the nice stripes the carpet has afterwards, the feeling of renewal that is created as you suck out the grit, grime and dust and watch the dirt canister fill up with measurable accomplishment.
What about the relative peace and quiet that you get when you vacuum? No need to answer any questions hollered from three rooms away, as how can you hear them over the soothing roar of the vacuum cleaner? Just you and your thoughts! Even the dogs stop following you around and seek shelter in other rooms.
Vacuuming is an escape, an oasis in a chaotic world. Phone rings, can't hear it! Kids arguing, can't hear that either!
"It is good practice to vacuum your carpet regularly to remove debris. How often you need to vacuum will depend on how much traffic parts of your home receive."
Ha! How often I need to vacuum depends more on the traffic outside on the road than in my home, the lines in the supermarket and whether the dog just dug up my rosebush for the umpteenth time.
Readers beware: if you are expecting to gain further insight into the art of vacuuming, you will be horrified by the repeated use of words like "soil" and "debris". Save yourself the aggravation and just go vacuum the guest room.
