Time today is considered one of the most valuable currencies of our day. Every people have to face every day, especially those who live in big cities, it is important to speed up some steps, especially those that are not always the favorites. Take care of the house, for example. Although it is a pleasure to live in a clean house, it takes work and takes too much of time.
Not only to save time, but also to save money and resources. The vacuum cleaner is one of those consumer electronics that can greatly facilitate. The practicality of cleaning and the different types of surfaces on which they can be used are some of the reasons for the success of using the appliance in everyday life. To take better advantage of the functions of the device, No Fluff Tech sent 5 tips to help at the time of purchase.
More power, less dirt: Power is important to make the engine run, but the efficiency of a vacuum cleaner is measured by the removal of dirt. “The power measured in watts says more about the amount of energy spent than how much it will clean. Vacuums can have high cleaning power, which is measured by suction, with low energy consumption,” says Adriana Gimenes. It would be like judging the speed of a car by fuel consumption.
Tip: Cleaning the product is essential and varies according to the frequency of use and amount of dirt that is drawn. Remember that the fuller the tank is, the less efficient the performance of the product, since the suction capacity will be reduced. If it is a bagged vacuum cleaner, replace it whenever it is full and if it is a bagless vacuum cleaner, always empty the reservoir.
Attention to pipes and hoses: A good seal is the base of the vacuum cleaner. Therefore, if there is loss of air flow because the air escapes through the cracked hose or the broken nozzle, the suction decreases and the dirt removal as well. Therefore it is important that the tube and the hose have an efficient internal seal to prevent loss of suction and in optimal conditions of use.
Tip: Note that the nozzles that come with the product are ideal for your home. Do you have upholstery, cushions and fabric chairs? Look for the vacuum cleaner with upholstery. Are there many books at home? Enjoy the LIT21 that features a 2 in 1 nozzle for corners, cracks and delicate surfaces.
Filtration: Vacuum cleaners have filters to prevent dust from returning to the environment or spreading during cleaning. “Therefore, its use is more effective than that of brooms. When an area is swept away, some of that dust is thrown into the air and then settled on the furniture,” adds Adriana.
Tip: just like any other, the filter accumulates dirt over time and needs to be changed or washed. The indication is to wash it whenever it is with accumulation of dirt or every two months in running water with delicacy and to make the substitution when necessary.
Choose a model with HEPA Filter: The accessory is responsible for retaining 99.9% of mites, fungi and bacteria. The vacuum cleaner sucks out the dirt and needs to return the aspirated air to the environment. Without the HEPA filter, these microorganisms return to the environment, causing respiratory allergies.
Tip: HEPA filter cleaners can be used to clean dusty areas such as mattresses, pillows and curtains. The result is a purer environment, a more peaceful sleep and a better quality of life.
Long life to the best ally in the cleaning: Do not suck up flammable liquids or burning coals: there may be a risk of explosion. Never pull the plug through the cord as the strands of the cord may break and cause serious injury. Finally, be aware of sharp objects such as staples, pins, needles and glass: they can damage the filters.
No Fluff Tech recommends the use of original accessories so as not to affect the performance of your vacuum cleaner or cause loss of warranty.
