Vacuuming is a household chore that used to be time-consuming and seemingly simple. There was only one style of vacuuming and not much thought had to be placed on safety as there was only one use for these devices. Now, there are many different styles of vacuums on the market with many different features and purposes.
Your vacuum can do more than just pick up dust from a carpeted living room now. With these additional features and options, you must now also consider safety. There are a few safety tips that you must consider even when using the best vacuum cleaner.
Our first tip may sound out of the box, but accidents have happened and you should do anything you can to avoid them. When you are vacuuming, you should always wear slippers or some kind of footwear. What can occur is that your toe can get stuck in the vacuum cleaner’s nozzle causing injury. You also do not want to get your feet dirty while vacuuming and wearing slippers is a good way to avoid that.
Keep Children And Pets Away
Children and pets can be very curious and they may want to investigate and see what the best vacuum cleaner is all about. If left unattended they may try to climb or stick their fingers and paws into the machine, leading to possible injury.
In other cases, children and pets may be scared of the vacuum. It is best to keep them out of the room you are vacuuming so as not to scare them or let them be injured.
Avoid Large Objects
Even the best vacuum cleaner is not made to pick up large objects. Although some vacuums have stronger suction than others it is still not advised to try and pick up large items.
Vacuums are meant to pick up small particles, dust, and dirt that you cannot see or pick up yourself. If there is a large object on the floor, move it out of the way or pick it up with your hands.
Avoid Flammable Items
Flammable materials can cause the vacuum to catch fire. Vacuums run on electricity and when you combine that with toxic or flammable items it can quickly get out of control. Check the space you are about to clean prior to using the vacuum.
Store The Cords Properly
Trips and falls can be harmful to anyone and can also be avoided. When storing or leaving the vacuum unattended make sure it is turned off and that the cords are out of the way. Check the cord for knots and tangles and avoid stretching out the cord. An unsuspecting person may trip over the cord causing serious injury.
Always Use The Vacuum Handle
Many people make the mistake of pulling on the vacuum cord when they are making their way through a room. Pulling the cord can actually cause the wire to loosen and cause a shortage. Always use the handle to guide the vacuum around the home.
