Effective Home Vacuuming.

Carpet Beater | Carpet CleaningWhen vacuuming a hard surface like tile or linoleum, suction power alone will work. With nothing for the dirt and dust to cling to, suction removes it easily. This is also the case when cleaning rugs or furniture made of silk and cotton or hook rugs.

But when you are vacuuming normal indoor carpeting, especially the type with lots of different lengths and textures of thread, suction power alone just isn’t enough.

Before the invention of the vacuum cleaner, people use to hang their carpets on clothes-lines and hit them repeatedly with a beater. Eventually all the dust would be knocked out of the fibers, and the carpet would be clean.

Current models of vacuum cleaners have rotating brushes located in the power head that agitate the carpet pile much like the old fashioned beaters. This action loosens the dirt which is then sucked up into the hose.

To keep carpets clean and in top shape, daily vacuuming is recommended, but in today’s busy world there often isn’t time for that luxury. In response, vacuum cleaner manufacturers have developed different types of beater brushes and bristles for Dyson Vacuum Cleanerdifferent types of carpets.

Interior of Sew & Vac StoreOver thirty years ago, I first began repairing vacuum cleaners. I’d find machines that no longer worked or were discarded, bring them home to my garage, take them apart and then rebuild and repair them. Once I had them running like new, I’d sell them at the flea market on the weekends. I saved the money I made on these refurbished machines, and in 1985 I bought a small sewing machine and vacuum shop.
