Regular vacuuming is one of the best ways you can maintain your carpet between professional carpet cleanings. There are a lot of different types of vacuums to choose from, however. What kind you choose will depend on your particular needs. This post will introduce you to robotic vacuums. Robotic vacuums are designed to run by themselves, sensing areas of the floor that need attention. These vacuums are ideal for people who have a hectic schedule, or who just struggle to get the vacuuming done. These vacuums come with a charging base and usually have at least one virtual wall. You use the virtual walls to section off an area for the vacuum to clean—it will not pass over the invisible wall created by the virtual wall. When it needs to charge, it then returns to the charging station. If you block it into an area where it cannot get to the charging base, it will just end up stopping in that room. The people that I know who have a robotic vacuum choose a different room each day and then start the vacuum before leaving for work. When they return, the room has been vacuumed, and in the course of the week, the whole house has been vacuumed. Give us a call when you are ready to have your carpets professionally cleaned. Until then, keep vacuuming!
