How To Rid Allergens and Dust From Your Home – A Mess, clean it up!
Different than most, I start my cleaning from the bottom up. Read on, I’ll share why!
Once a room is clean I then go from the top down.
See, clean freakiness lives in my home and I bet in yours too!
After all, you can’t be surprised, that I am like this, because I know you read my article on Shoes that keep your floors clean
Do I clean the house constantly? No. Daily? Yes.
How does one do this particular DIY? Baby Steps of course!
Remember, a New Year, New You, means small changes daily leading to a better quality of life.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, therefore, tackle small messes first, then incrementally progress.
Any change for the new year is a great way to start small and then go big!
Start with cleaning your floors. Then organizing a drawer, then a room.
Wipe off shoes when you go into your home.
Weekly, I clean hard, and I use a bit of the time as workout time. Yep! An arm workout without weights.
Truly it might sound crazy, but, giving my arms a day off from weight training is a good thing, yet, I still lightly work out!
Achoo – Rid Allergens and Dust Fast!
Dust. It’s a beastie like no other, and for some of us, a trigger to live in allergy hell.
Nope. No more. Not here.
Have you ever looked at your hardwood floors? Or maybe a leather or fabric chair you just sat in?
A culmination of dead skin particles, dust and dirt are waiting to attack. They are not getting me or my family!
Brush Head with a Dual Motor? Make it a reality in your home.
My cordless vacuum easily goes from carpet to floor with the press of a foot pedal!
Each head has 2 brushes and they both offer their own power for the surface you are cleaning. Cool right? Yes!
When I step off the carpet onto the floor, I just depress the foot pedal and keep on moving.
No stopping, which equals progress!
Food particles like bread crumbs, flour, sugar spills, etc are easily cleaned up on the hard floors.
A soft brush cleans up those nasty big messes life makes. Life is messy so clean it up!
I was doubtful about the cleaning power of the carpet head portion of this dual motor.
However, a heavy-duty main brush definitely deep-cleaned and the proof was in the cup!
Clean It Up Without Being Corded!
My Omni Power UV + Cordless Vacuum is charged in about 2 1/2 – 3 hours.
Cleaning time is going to vary for everyone, dependant on your task.
Battery power will function on TURBO suction mode for about 25 minutes, and then you will need to recharge.
There are three modes of power: normal, power and turbo (my personal fave), sucking the life out of dirt, germs, and bacteria on all modes!
Consider this Round ONE!
Yep, this is how I started out when I got my new Raycop!
In order to tackle the initial round of cleaning, I used the Turbo Suction mode. Why?
Carpet, hardwood floors, linoleum, ceramic, upholstery, fabrics, paddle fans all have met their match.
Cleaning on the first round, to rid my home of dust, dirt, germs and odd particles, with a REAL vacuum, required an intense beginning.
Turbo suction left me feeling great because I knew that once the particles entered the dust cup and washable filter, they were not getting OUT!
Once captured they stay captured!
Hot DIY Tip for Clean It Up!
When you wash the filter, do it outside!
DIY Step 2 – Clean It Up Deeper!
You might think after the Turbo Mode there’s nothing left to tell.
Not true. I was just getting warmed up.
To stay focused, I worked in ONE room, and I suggest this tactical method for anyone cleaning.
FOCUSED Cleaning is Everything. Remember I mentioned germs and bacteria?
Raycop gets me, and how crazy I am about cleanliness because it matters.
You are about to understand this DIY even more!
Visit someone in a hospital, a nursing home or go to a meal!
Now, come home with those clothes and sit on your couch, favorite chair, etc.
Bacteria travel from person to person!
BUTT the BACTERIA TRANSFER STOPS HERE!
Yes, this picture really happened. I was sitting in a restaurant with my family.
This guy sits down. His butt cheeks blazing for the world to see! All I could think of was this.
Get me home and run that UV Sanitizing Head over all my furniture. Bacteria and germs need Sanitized!
Sanitizing with the Omni Power UV+ is easy.
Just put the Sanitizing head-on, and turn the power on! In about 10 seconds, 99% of all bacteria is removed!
I started with all of the fabric chairs. These are infamous for hiding debris, but not an opponent for the Omni Power UV+!
Knowing that after 5 seconds, 99.9% of the viruses are removed made me feel more in control and better!
‘Going to the mattresses!’ – It’s not just a ‘GODFATHER’ thing! Clean It Up.
Keep the Cleaning Party Moving, traveling from the upholstery on furniture to the Mattresses upstairs!
Do you vacuum your mattress? Why not? It’s dirty.
It has germs, bacteria, dust mites and more.
Going to the mattresses is all about waging war on your rivals, dust mites, and bacteria!
Using the UV Sanitizing head on my Raycop Omni Power UV+ I headed to the mattresses!
Your germs are removed in seconds.
In fact, I kept this attachment head-on and moved to our carpet, and hard floor surfaces too! Boom-ba! Cleanliness lives.
Step 3: One Touch Easy & Getting Attached is Easy – Clean It Up!
Turning my Raycop Omni Power UV+ Cordless Vacuum on and off is easy.
One-touch is on, and normal power. While 2 touches are Power, while 3 touches are TURBO baby!
A favorite phrase I think of each time I go to use this power is, “How will you die today Joan Wilder?” from Romancing the Stone.
However, I am talking this out in my head and to the dirt, germs, and bacteria, lol. I know I am weird, but I own who I am!
Humor gets me through cleaning and keeps me moving.
Getting attached to Raycop Omni Power UV+ is easy.
Just touch the release button and the wand detaches easily.
Then to attach a new piece (head, crevice tool, etc) match up the openings and have at it!
Step 4: Paddle Fans – Clean It Up!
Look up. It’s nasty and you gotta tackle it.
The Omni Power UV+ Cordless Vacuum is so light, at just about 6 pounds that you can easily clean above you!
Remember I said, I use cleaning as a workout? Rather than my lightweights or no weights, I clean our 7 paddles fans.
I attached the crevice tool and aim my vacuum up. As it cleans I watch the dirt enter the removable dust cup.
Dirty Insider Secret No. 2
Be smart when you unload the dust cup, head outdoors, away from your home.
Keep the doors or windows closed. Take a plastic bag with you, and empty the cup outdoors.
After all, the dirt stays trapped in the Raycop but when you empty it, use common sense to keep it OUT of your home!
DIY Step 5 – Clean It Up, Keep It Up!
You are off to a great start. Cleaning. Sanitizing. Bacteria-fighting. Mattress-cleaning!
Truly you got this.
Day by day, add another room into your cleaning repertoire until you have tackled all the rooms.
At the end of each room, each mattress, floor, carpet, etc, you are one step closer to a cleaner home.
Since you own the Raycop Omni Power UV+ Cordless Vacuum, you can dig and clean any time.
I suggest a weekly once over and monthly deeper cleaning.
Do know, that no matter when you use this vacuum, you are getting a deep cleaning on any surface it touches.
Suction is strong and continuous. Charging allows you to rest in between cleaning sprints.
The Wall Mount makes being organized easy as you can maintain your crevice tool, combination tool, UV Sanitation head all in one place.
Charge it while it’s mounted!
New Year, New You. Life is messy, clean it up! Got Glitter?
I worked with this vacuum for over a month, and we’ ve had less sneezing and cleaner surfaces.
Using it daily is the best defense after all dirt happens every day as do germs and dust!
Lightweight, always ready for the next job and easy to use, make it my favorite appliance to ‘clean it up’ in my home.
(I am working on getting an image of this, as I failed to do so as I was just stunned by the results— stay tuned)
There’s no way to tell you how much I love this vacuum and its power other than this last example.
Glitter is something I love. Sparkling is happiness. However, happiness tends to stick to both floors and clothing.
I just so happened to pass an OLD stick vacuum over glitter. NOTHING. Conversely, I used my Raycop Omni Power UV+!
Wowza. Glitter on a hard floor, gone, with NOTHING behind.
That was my last defining moment and when I knew I would share this Cordless Vacuum with you!
The 4 stage filtration system, with washable filters, and a dirt cup to reuse over and over again, make it a dream cordless vacuum.
What are you waiting for? I wished I would have had this vacuum sooner and now, I cherish owning it! Thank you Raycop!
Your turn. Life is messy, clean it up! Get this vacuum and try our new year, new you inspired cleaning revolution! ~ Happy New Year. DANA XO
