How to effectively vacuumclean a carpet without spoiling air at home

Vacuumclean outside

Vacuumclean in the yard or somwhere else outside!

Also note in the picture the filter, which is taken out of the exit. This filter is not necessary if you vacuumclean outside. Air exit door is left open, which makes it easier for vacuumcleaner to operate. Chicken on the picture are just for fun.

I had a problem, that vacuumcleaning at home created an unpleasant “atmosphere”. Emptying or changing vacuumcleaner bag at least once a month helped a little bit. Then one day I saw a place where vacuumcleaner was built in the wall and all air just went outside of house. This made me think that having vacuumcleaner outside of room would be nice. Then I realized that it is easily done, if carpet is also taken outside.

I would like to note that I found it possible to empty and use again even single use vacuumcleaner dust bags. That helps to save budget and environment (if vacuumcleaner bag is not biodegradeble). Vacuumcleaner works the best with an empty bag. Even if the dust bag seems not to be full, it is adviced to empty it. This is also best done outside during windy weather to avoid breathing in some dust. I empty my dust bags into fireplace outside, since in my case dust is mostly wool, dog hair and sand. Having synthetic carpets would require emptying the dust into trashcan, since burning such dust would create toxic smoke.
