So you just bought the best vacuum cleaner on the market and now that you went over the carpet, it is time to put it away, right? While you could keep it in the closet and let it collect dust until the next time you vacuum, there are plenty of other uses for these devices. As it turns out, there is a purpose for all of those attachments that came with the vacuum.

While dusting will remove a large portion of the dust, it will also push the debris around leaving some behind. Since vacuums suck up the dirt rather than pushing it around, they can provide a deeper clean. Here are some secret vacuuming tricks that cleaning companies in Bucks County use to get the most out of your vacuum.


Ceiling fans seem to be magnets for dust, no matter how long it has been since their last use. Many people will want to clean them with a duster, but one swipe is likely send the dust into the air and onto the walls and carpet. Instead, grab an attachment with an angled head and vacuum each blade to stop the spread of dust. When going to wash or paint the walls, after wiping them down, go over the area with any attachment to remove the dirt the cloth missed.

Bookshelves and drawers are also notorious for collecting grime and various debris. To quickly and effectively clean these areas, use the narrow crevice attachment to get in the tight corners of these areas.  You can keep this attachment on to remove all the crumbs out of a trash can without having to reach in there yourself. You can use the crevice or soft brush attachment to clean the dust out of humidifier vents to increase the air quality in your house. The same attachments can be used to remove the built-up dust from the coils behind a refrigerator to maximize its efficiency.

Many people neglect to clean their mattress and think that cleaning their sheets is enough. The bed can be covered in dead skin, dust mites, and other dirt that a quick dusting would miss. Whenever you wash the sheets, take a minute to vacuum the mattress, box spring, and pillows.
