Cleaning the room or the carpet using a vacuum cleaner, it is practical. However, you must make sure it is used properly.
These are some common mistakes made when vacuuming.
1. Do not suck the carpet in two directions
If you just suck the carpet in one direction, you do not remove dust and dirt as a whole. Some of this dirt can hide behind the cloth.
Try to suck the carpet from different directions, top to bottom, bottom to top, right to left, and left right.
2. Allowing dust bag filled to the brim

Better yet, if you do not reuse the dust bag, because it can cut up to 50 percent efficiency.
3. Too fast
Use a vacuum to the maximum and slowly. By doing so, the engine can suck up more dirt and dust so your carpet cleaner.
4. Do not use the crevice tool
Each vacuum cleaner is usually equipped with a device that is able to reach the corners of the room or crevice tool. However, this tool is rarely used because usually people use the vacuum cleaner only for carpets.
At least, use it to clean the edges of the room twice a month. Dirt or dust in the corners of the room is often overlooked for years.
5. Not Adjust height
Be sure to adjust the height of the vacuum cleaner as you move from one side of the carpet to the other side. Some vacuum cleaners can do it automatically.
