Knowledge
It’s important to ensure you’re using your vacuum cleaner the correct way in order to make sure you’re getting the most out of it.

Here are five common mistakes people make when giving their floors a clean.

1. Watch out for technique

You may have never considered the technique you’re using when vacuuming but this can make a big difference to your cleaning routine – especially in terms of how quickly you get things done! Firstly, be sure to use a tool that is best adapted to the surface you’re working on, for example the 2-in-1 Kobold SP600 for all your hard floors. This machine strives to cut cleaning time in half, vacuuming and mopping hard floors in one working step. As well as this, consider the technique you’re using to vacuum your house. Be sure to follow a pattern, strategically cleaning to ensure you don’t vacuum the same places multiple times.

2. Posture

Ensure that your cleaning technique and tools benefit your posture. The Kobold VK200 Upright Vacuum Cleaner is purposely upright, with an easily adjustable telescopic handle to help you clean more easily. This design also stops you from needing to bend down as often, helping your vacuuming to become more comfortable and enabling you to get the job done much faster.

3. Is it time to change your filter bag?

Many vacuum cleaners are left for months and even years without the filter bag being changed. This can have a negative impact on your vacuum, meaning it doesn’t clean your house as well as it should. There’s no need to worry about when you should change your filter bag with The Kobold VK200 Upright Vacuum Cleaner as its LED filter bag level display lights up completely orange when it’s time to swap bags.

4. Does one size really fit all?

Your upright vacuum cleaner might be perfect for lots of different floor types, from hard floors to carpets. When it comes to more delicate cleaning, however, have you thought about using a different type of vacuuming tool? If you’re looking to clean your delicate upholstered furniture, or inside your car for example, why not try the Kobold PB440 Electric Upholstery Brush? This tool is much easier to use on your furniture and helps you to clean those hard to reach, dusty spots in your house or car!

5. Clear the area

Before you even think about getting our vacuum cleaner out, be sure to make sure you have a clear floor space. Having to pick up books, magazines, shoes and plates along the way will only slow you down, so be sure to start off by doing this. Once you’ve got a blank canvas to clean and no obstacles to vacuum around, you’ll be done in no time at all!
