It is definitely worth the investment to purchase a good handheld vacuum. While it may not be ideal to clean your large carpeted areas with your small vacuums, you will find it extremely useful in other areas of your home. Here are 7 ways that your rechargeable hand vacuum will come in handy:
Using your regular vacuum on your stairs can be not only tiresome but ineffective. It is nearly impossible to hit all the corners or crevices on the stairs with the large machine. A handheld vacuum will allow you to get this chore done quickly and effectively. Use your crevice tool to get an even deeper clean. This job is easy enough for a child to do it with a lightweight handheld.
Window Sills, Door tracks, and Baseboards
It is easy to overlook cleaning these areas, however, they can often become extremely dusty and dirty when overlooked. Use your handheld vacuum equipped with its crevice tool to clean these hard to reach spots. You will be amazed at how much dust and dirt your small vacuum can suck up in these spots. It will make all the difference in the cleanliness of your home.
Blinds, Curtains, and Window Treatments
Your window treatments need cleaning regularly. They are a breeding ground for dust mites, spider webs, and dirt. By attaching your brush attachment to your hand vacuum, you can clean these areas very efficiently.
Nothing is more unsightly than having dust or spider webs hang from your lighting. Use your hand vacuum with the brush attachment to quickly clean these areas. Some vacuums even come with extensions that will make it easier to reach those lights just out of reach. If you must use a ladder, make sure you have someone who can help hold it steady for safety purposes.
While there is absolutely no substitution for washing your sheets regularly, you can use your handheld vacuum to pick up those crumbs from the late-night cookie snack or the specs of dirt you brought onto the bed when they forgot to take their shoes off. Also, when it is sheet washing day, use your handheld vacuum on your mattress pad to remove any dust or grime.
Under or Behind Appliances
We recommend using a microfiber cloth on your appliances. However, a handheld vacuum is the perfect way to clean those hard to reach spots under or behind your appliances. These areas are home to crumbs, trash, and who knows what else. Just be certain the areas are dry before vacuuming. Use your crevice tool or brush attachment to get the deepest clean.
Shelves and Inside Cabinets
Dusting is not difficult but it can be arduous to remove everything on a shelf. Using your handheld vacuum between dusting can be a great way to get rid of dust or mites. This works best when your brush is attached to the handheld vacuum.
Use your handheld vacuum as a way to extend your deep cleanings. If your home needs a more thorough cleaning, contact our North Atlanta Cleaning Service to schedule an appointment. We will do the dirty work so you don’t have to.
