Imagine a life where your only purpose in life is picking up dirt off a floor. Doesn’t seem very exciting, right? That’s how it feels to be your vacuum! And that’s a boring existence. That’s why you should try to spice up your vacuum’s life by giving it some variety for a more exciting daily life.
All joking aside, it is true that most people only vacuum their floors and carpets and neglect the other important areas around their home that also crave some vacuuming attention. If you’re not planning on hiring a reputable house cleaning service in Fort Collins anytime soon, it’s time to explore the other areas of your home, vacuum cleaner in hand.
What should I vacuum besides the floor?
So, if you’re looking for the next best place to make good use of your vacuum besides your floors and carpets, you’re in luck – we’ve got several! Are you ready to shake things up and take your vacuum to where you’ve probably never taken it before? Here’s a quick list of 5 places around your home that you should be vacuuming:
Between pets and toddlers, our couches tend to attract everything from clumps of dog hair to crushed up goldfish crackers. A vacuum will suck it all right up and leave the same aesthetically appealing vacuum lines that it leaves on the floor. Now, if that’s not a win-win, we don’t know what is.
We’re not advising that you suck up all of the soot and ash leftover from winter, but you should consider vacuuming the wood, stone, or bricks around your fireplace. These can really gather some dust, and since vacuums have extensions and attachments, they make a fantastic enemy for that pesky fireplace dust!
It doesn’t take long for dust to settle on your baseboards. When you have kids, you probably spend most of your time wiping… noses. It’s probably been a while since you’ve wiped your baseboards. You guessed it – it’s the vacuum to the rescue again!
Run your vacuum along the baseboards to remove most of the buildup. Then do a quick swipe with a microfiber and you’re all done! This will turn your unappealing dirty baseboards into the new stars of your home!
Vacuums really know their way around a kitchen. If you haven’t deep cleaned the inside of your cabinets and drawers lately, a vacuum makes a great helper! You’ll still need to wipe any spills with a damp cloth, but the vacuum will snatch up all of the crumbs without them ending up on your floor where you’d eventually have to vacuum them up anyway. So why not act first?
Door / window tracks
That track at the bottom of your patio doors and windows tend to swallow up truckloads of dirt. It’s enough to ask yourself where all that dirt even comes from and if your kids just shove sand in there while you’re not looking. Open the windows, use an old chopstick to loosen the dirt, and vacuum up the clumps as you go for maximum effect.
