What is the best kind of vacuum to use to get all the fuzz and small bits
around the edges from a newly laid carpet? This is just for the very 1st
vacuuming. A shop vac? Would an ordinary house vacuum get all clogged up
from the fuzz?
Just use the crevice tool along the edge. Good for later dust
accumulation, too. An ordinary vaccum takes up dust and fuzz as part of
normal cleaning. The stuff that clogs vacuums is usually stuff like
straight pins or other objects that get stuck in the hose. If the hose
has spiral wire support, handle with care so the wire doesn't kink -
that can cause clogs as well.
It took multiple, multiple vacuumings before all the fuzz quit coming up
from my new carpet a few years back. Me being the cheapskate I am, I
pulled all that fuzz out of the vacuum cleaner bags and reused the same
bags. They fill up fast from that fuzz.
