It sucks up dirt and zaps away dust bunnies but is your vacuum cleaner clean itself?
If you empty your vacuum’s filter by tapping it into the trash can, you probably aren’t alone.
Most vacuum owners will commit this common mistake when cleaning house.
However, you might be adding more dust to your home with this technique.
Instead, try taking the vacuum outside and cleaning the pleated filter with a shop vacuum.
This will ensure the canister is completely void of residue.
Make sure to do this regularly and replace the filter every three months.
If you own a bagged vacuum, invest in high-quality bags so your device can trap dirt effectively.
Regardless of what kind of device you have, vacuuming horizontally and then vertically is the best way to reduce dust.
