This episode, we’re gonna be talking about vacuums and the importance of vacuum on a regular basis. A lot of times people dread doing the vacuuming throughout their house because they look into the vacuum vacuuming process as an entire house thing and it’s kind of an all or nothing approach. And, uh, you know, if you do go to try to vacuum the entire house, it could take you 20, 30 minutes, maybe an hour to get around and do everything.
00:56 But as far as your routine maintenance, vacuuming goes, um, you should be doing that every couple of days. Uh, the large bulk of vacuuming you can do maybe once a month or every other month to get the, all the side areas, all the other areas. But if you’re vacuuming your first couple of a main entry points into the house every other day or so, and just like maybe spend two, three, maybe four minutes vacuuming, that is about all that it takes to try to maintain the dirt. Because the first five to 10 feet of carpet going into your house is like a wastebasket. It’s going to catch the dirt that’s coming into your home and keep it from going into the rest. But once it gets full, then that you’re going to walk onto that area, pick up dirt and move it into the next area. carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998.
01:40 And we are complete carpet. And the important part of vacuuming is that you’re trying to remove the grit dust and grime that’s in your carpet. Dust is the universal sandpaper for your carpet. Uh, that dust gets down into the carpet in between the fibers and it kind of a bed itself down into that nylon and each time you step on it, it rubs against the other pieces of nylon. And the dust is stronger, the grit is stronger, the sand is stronger than the nylon fibers. carpet stretching Tulsa And so it slowly starts to rip through. It slowly starts to shred it, and it’ll start to puff and bloom quicker than normal. This causes madness. The little tufts of fibers start to unravel and they’ll start to mix in with the other testified around them and they end up looking somewhat like the back of a poodle instead of being the nice fluffy individual fibers of the carpet originally was.
02:29 So the, uh, more often that you vacuum and keep that dust and debris out of the carpet. The longer it will look fresh and new for you and the slower it will take before it starts to mat down, bloom and fluff out carpet stretching Tulsa. Since 1998, we are complete carpet. And I get asked this question quite often is, uh, what is the best of vacuum to use and there’s not really one set answer to when is the best vacuum to get. Um, it’s more what is the function or the form that you’re going to use your vacuum for a, if you’re looking for a long lasting vacuum, you’re going to have to spend a little bit more money. You’ve got to looking for the 400 to $600 vacuum range. Um, if you’re looking for something that’s got a lot of attachments or do dads for other functions besides just vacuuming a that I’d look at those specific functions that attachments, when you’re looking for your vacuum, pretty much anything from about a hundred to $300 is about the same vacuum.
03:26 They just, as the price goes up, they add more attachments to the vacuum itself. The core vacuum doesn’t change very much through that price range. The reason you want to get into the more expensive vacuums to have longer time or distances that the under $300 vacuums, most, all of them are made as a disposable vacuum. They’re only designed to last four to five years because they only have a 10, 15, a dollar motor in it, and it’s not designed to last for an extremely long amount of time. It’s designed to give you a good high performance for a short period of time at a very cheap, affordable cost. A lot of people try to keep a $100 vacuum for more than five years and it just slowly starts to wear out. carpet stretching Tulsa. Since 1998. One of the things that we noticed or I’ve noticed many times is that people are the two things that will wear a vacuum out is a dirty filter and setting them too low of a setting.
04:15 If it’s down and this really grinding against the carpet, then they will wear the vacuum. I put in the constant strain on the motor. The other thing that also were a vacuum out is having a dirty or clogged filter. A lot of times people don’t realize that there is an exit air filter on their vacuum and so they only clean out the visible filtered, whether it be a bag or were there have a little container in the front. They’re psych loan type technology and they’ll dump that out as it gets full of debris, but they never underneath that will be a little air filter that keeps the dust from being blown back into the room as it sucks it up and that filter can get filled or dirty. A lot of times people will have it and I’ve never really cleaned it out since they bought the vacuum.
04:54 Very few vacuums tell you right off the bat that there is a filter down there that needs to be replaced every three to six months. One of the ways that you can tell that the filter needs to be replaced is one, they’ll try to suck something up and it will just shoot it across the room and you try to pick up material and it just spits it out. Instead of sucking it up or to. When you vacuum something, it’s smells like what you vacuumed and it’s starting to smell like what you’re vacuuming. That means your filter has gotten clogged and has gotten full of dirt, debris or whatever it is that you’re wanting to starting to create heat and that heat is warming up the smells that are in the filter and it’s blowing it out because it’s drawing. It’s sucking hard, but it’s not getting air through it because it’s clogged and so it’s really creating a lot of extra energy, a lot of wear and tear against that motor.
05:35 It’s going to be worn out quickly. Typically those motors do not quit working. They slow down, they don’t spin as fast as they used to, and so they become 50 percent effective or 30 percent effective as opposed to just completely dying altogether. It just slows down and it doesn’t suck up as much as it used to. carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. We are complete carpet. Give us a call today at nine.
