New carpet? Check Your Vacuum First

New carpet? Check Your Vacuum First
Deep pile carpets and vacuuming

Luxurious, super-soft carpeting has recently become popular, but it comes with one huge caveat: Your vacuum cleaner might not be able to clean it. That's right, after you shell out thousands for new carpeting, you might also need to fork over more money for a new vacuum.

New carpets are quite often made with longer fibers (and more of them) than traditional carpets which you may have in your household. This makes them soft and comfortable underfoot (which we all love), but this makes them a real challenge to clean. For a vacuum cleaner to glide easily on a carpet, air must flow into the nozzle and through the machine. Block the air flow and the vacuum seals itself to the carpet and is hard to push. And, unfortunately, that's what many consumers have discovered when their new carpeting is installed. Before you buy, check the websites of carpet brands you're considering, like Mohawk and Shaw, to see which vacuum cleaner models are recommended.

Do You Have the Right Kind of Vacuum?

The best vacuums for plush carpeting are lightweight, have large wheels for easy maneuverability, and have adjustable speeds and brush height settings. Set the height so the rotating brush just skims the top of the carpet. You know you've got the right setting if the vacuum is fairly easy to push and leaves "clean" tracks on the surface of the rug.
