Mum Empties Carpet Cleaner To Show Why It's Important To Hoover Regularly

A mum has shown just how important it is to make sure you clean your carpets regularly.

With most of us stuck at home for the foreseeable, we've got a bit more time on our hands to keep on top of the housework.

And taking to social media, one mum shared a video of the kinds of dirt that can accumulate in a person's carpet after just a couple of weeks.

In the clip posted to Australian Facebook group Mums Who Clean, the mum empties the container of her deep-clean vacuum, pouring out a dark brown liquid into her sink.

And though it's only recommended that you clean your carpet in this way around once a year, the mother said she has to do it more regularly because her daughter struggles with asthma so uses her heavy duty cleaner to get rid of the dirt.

She then asked others in the group how often they choose to do a once over.

Commenting on the post, one mum said: "Well that makes me feel like a grot. My carpet is five years old and I just vacuum one to two times a week, though have been thinking to have it professionally cleaned soon."

While another added: "If I had a kid with asthma, I would definitely pull [the carpet] up and replace with floorboards."

However, the mum who shared the original post said she rents her home so is unable to make such a drastic change.

Another member then offered their own piece of advice, claiming that maybe her regular hoover just isn't good enough.

She said: "I would say that your vacuum is not picking up enough dirt, that's why you need to shampoo so often."

Katrina Neathey has spent years of her life clearing up after her kids, 19-year-old Hayden, 18-year-old Joshua and 13-year-old Olivia.

So she agreed a contract with each of her three children that lays out in black and white the standards they're expected to adhere to at home.

To be fair, most of the rules are pretty simple stuff like putting washing away, emptying the dishwasher or not having make-up or food in the bedroom.

But, if the older two break the rules, they're fined £5. If her younger daughter drops the ball, she has her phone taken off her.
