Regular vacuuming is an essential part of a clean and healthy home. Not only does it help rid your carpets and floors of dust, dirt, and allergens; however, oftentimes we forget about the hard-to-reach areas in our homes like under furniture, baseboards, blinds or window sills. Yet these are all places that benefit from regular vacuum maintenance too! Don’t forget to take the time and pay attention to overlooked areas of your home, for dust mites, dirt, and other allergens that accumulate in these spots can trigger health issues if left unchecked.


When cleaning, start with furniture that has legs or feet and pull it away from the walls so you can easily vacuum up any dirt or dust that may be lurking in those hard-to-reach crevices. Once each piece is moved out of place, make sure to focus on fabric pieces like couches and recliners; these spots are often forgotten but quickly accumulate dust without us noticing! Don’t forget to check underneath cushions as well—this spot is usually where pet fur and dander hide.


Next come the baseboards in your home. Baseboards are often forgotten when cleaning because they are low-traffic areas located above ground level—out of sight out of mind! However, just because we don’t see them doesn’t mean they don’t require regular maintenance; keeping your baseboards dust-free shows you take good care of your home! Ensure your baseboards remain spotless and avoid potential issues like mold or mildew growth by vacuuming them every couple of weeks. This simple task will ensure they stay clean and free from any dirt buildup!

Blinds and Window Sills

Lastly, windowsills and blinds cannot be forgotten. As they are unavoidably exposed to outdoor air currents when a window is opened or closed, both of these spaces tend to amass dust over time. To guarantee their cleanliness on a continued basis, it’s necessary to wipe them down with a damp cloth from time-to-time along with giving all surfaces—both inside/outside facing—a quick vacuum pass to rid any residual particles!

Vacuuming isn’t just about making a fleeting pass through our carpets every week; it’s also important to pay attention to all the forgotten places, like beneath furniture, baseboards, and behind blinds & window sills. Cleaning these overlooked areas can drastically reduce potential allergens and pollutants in your home – leading to more healthful air quality. For maximum cleanliness inside your abode, don’t forget to tackle those neglected spots next time you dust off that vacuum cleaner!
