Vacuum Cleaners | 4 Must-Have Features For Tackling Hard-to-Reach Carpet Corners

Home & Garden Blog

If you have carpets in your home, then you'll know how vital vacuum cleaners are for keeping them clean. But even the best vacuum cleaner is rendered useless when it cannot tackle a hard-to-reach spot under furniture or on the corners of your carpet. If you don't know what to look for, let this guide help you identify some must-have features to help you tackle tricky carpet corners with your vacuum cleaners.

Crevice Attachment

A crevice attachment tapers to a lean end and is especially constructed to reach tricky spots and corners for vacuuming. This tool is ideal for vacuuming under furniture, inside upholstered furniture, in tough corners and along edges of walls. The tapering crevice attachment design is meant to suck in as much dust, dirt and debris as possible to clean hard-to-reach spots on your carpet.

Variable Power Settings

This is an ideal feature for tackling hard to reach spots because you will be able to remove resilient dirt from corners more easily when you set the vacuum cleaner to the highest power. You won't have to worry about high power damaging the delicate areas of your carpet thanks to variable power settings, allowing you to benefit from the best of both worlds. Customising power is an excellent setting when you need to vacuum diverse areas in your home with different cleaning requirements.  

Dusting Brush

A dusting brush is an excellent feature for tackling stubborn dirt that refuses to leave the carpet fibres. Dusting brushes are angled to force and sweep dust from the carpet into the vacuum hose. The brush first loosens the dust on the carpet before the vacuum sucks it up. A dusting brush is a good addition to vacuum cleaners when you need to tackle delicate areas and difficult spots.

Brush Rolls

Brush rolls are bristled plastic or wood cylinders that rotate at extreme speeds for extracting dust and dirt from carpets. This makes it easy to target corners, edges and spaces below furniture. Keep in mind that brush rolls reign supreme on carpets, but they can damage other hard floor surfaces. Make sure you have the choice to turn off the brush roll if you're using vacuum cleaners to clean other non-carpeted spots in your home. Ideally, the vacuum should have a button to turn this feature on or off.

While stubborn carpet dirt may require professional steam cleaners, make sure that daily-use vacuum cleaners are equipped with these features for the carpets in your home.

Improve your Bathroom

Hello. My name is Tina and this is my home improvement blog. The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. My mother used to always say that you could discover a lot about a person by how clean their bathroom was. Because of this advice, I have always been very worried about the state of my bathroom. Last year, I was convinced that the bathroom was too old and grubby so I contacted a team of contractors who came out to work on it. They re-tiled the place and installed a new sink and splashback. I really love me new bathroom and I hope you like my new blog.
