3 Forgotten Areas of a Home That Need Vacuuming, Seymour, Connecticut

While most people vacuum their carpet on a weekly basis, other parts of the home get less attention or go untouched altogether. If you want to eradicate allergens and increase comfort, then you need to tackle these lesser-known areas just as frequently. Here are three examples to help you clean your living space like a professional. 

3 Areas to Use a Vacuum Besides Your Carpet

1. Furniture

Whether you have a large family or simply like to enjoy popcorn on the living room couch, your furniture can benefit from frequent vacuuming. Likewise, if you notice your allergies pick up when settling into your favorite chair, pet dander may be lurking in the fibers. Use a long, narrow attachment to remove lint, dust, and food particles stuck in the crevices of armchairs and sofas.

2. Fireplaces

vacuumDuring the colder months, you’re probably taking full advantage of your fireplace. As a result, soot and ash could have gathered around the area and may be so small you don’t even notice them. Luckily, you can use your vacuum to suck up these particles and avoid dust inhalation. 

3. Curtains

Airborne cat and dog hair can cling to window treatments due to static electricity. If you often open your windows during the warmer months, dirt and other allergens can also stick to the back of curtains. Use your vacuum on a light setting with a soft brush attachment when cleaning curtains so the suction doesn’t consume the fabric. Also use a crevice tool for hard-to-reach spots, such as the recesses of pleated drapes.
