Home Care Tips: Making Vacuuming Healthier and More Effective

Home Care in East Haven CT

Home Care in East Haven CTHelping your parent keep their home clean and fresh is an important element of your care efforts. A clean home is healthier and more comfortable, providing an environment that is conducive to your loved one enjoying the highest quality of life as they age in place. No matter how important it is, cleaning your parent's house can also be extremely time-consuming and can take time away from other tasks that you may want or need to be doing. This means that you want to make sure that every cleaning effort you make is not only as efficient as possible, but also as effective as possible so that your parent gets the best results and you do not have to repeat the cleaning as often.

One task that is necessary for a clean house but that can seem daunting and tedious is vacuuming. Carpets can harbor a variety of contaminants including dirt, germs, bacteria, pollen, dander, and dust that can increase the risk of illness and infection, and irritate those with respiratory health issues or allergies. Removing these contaminants effectively will not only protect your parent's health, but it will also make their home look better and smell fresher.

Try these tips to help make vacuuming your parent's home healthier and more effective so that it does not seem like such an overwhelming task and you can feel confident your parent has gotten the most benefit from it:

• Use the right vacuum. If your parent has had the same vacuum for years, it might be time to upgrade. There are many different types of vacuums available and if you choose the one that is right for your parent's carpet or particular needs it will make the task easier and more effective. For example, there are vacuums designed specifically for high pile carpets, for removing pet odors and hair, and for those with allergies. Do some research and find one that will give your parent the results that they need.

• Clean it out. Remember that what you are sucking up out of the carpet has to go somewhere and the vacuum only has but so much capacity. Cleaning it out in between uses, or even in the middle of a heavy cleaning, will help to maintain optimum efficiency and effectiveness, and prevent what you already removed from getting put back into the air.

• Use a carpet powder. You do not have to invest in expensive, chemical-laden carpet powders to get a fresh-smelling, clean carpet. Instead, rely on simple natural ingredients to create a homemade powder that is highly effective. To make it, simply combine baking powder, borax, and your favorite dried flowers or colorless essential oils. Spread the powder evenly over the carpet and allow it to sit for 15 minutes and then vacuum it up. This combination loosens dirt and other contaminants, absorbs moisture, and removes odors.

• Deep clean occasionally. No matter how well you vacuum, carpets will occasionally need a more thoroughly cleaning. By doing this regularly you can ease the stress of feeling like you constantly need to vacuum and will get better results when you do because the dirt and other contaminants will not be as deep in the fibers.

Welcome to SYNERGY HomeCare of East Haven, CT. We are an agency that provides non-medical services such as companion care, homemaking, personal care , and respite care to individuals of all age groups. Our mission is to assist individuals to reach the maximum amount of independence they can achieve, and to improve the quality of life for those that are experiencing physical or mental disabilities. These disabilities may include, but are not limited to, stroke, Alzheimer's or other dementias, Parkinson’s disease, or cancer.

Hello, my name is Gordon Wall and I am the President and owner of SYNERGY HomeCare of East Haven, Ct. My wife and I have been in the medical field for 35 years as I am a Registered Pharmacist and my wife a Registered Nurse. Although SYNERGY HomeCare is a non-medical agency, together we have a long history of medical expertise that is beneficial in providing homecare services.

We understand the challenges, both physically and mentally, that are involved in caring for aging parents, as we have had our own personal experiences, and are aware of the demands it places on family members as they endeavor to maintain their own household/lives. We are very passionate about maintaining the integrity of the workers and the dignity of the clients. We strive to make aging and healing a beautiful part of life and realize the importance of staying in ones home to achieve this. Whatever age requires the service.....'There is no place like home'.

We specially train our caregivers/CNA's to meet the individualized needs per diagnosis. We instill in them the importance of treating each person with respect, compassion, and having empathy with their client. Each caregiver/CNA is CPR certified, they have evidence of negative TB testing, they are fully insured and a national criminal background check is performed. My wife works with each caregiver clinically before they are assigned to a client. Once assigned to a client, quality calls and visits are conducted to make sure the client/family is satisfied with the care they are receiving with their caregiver(s). There are times when a client is receiving medical care. We also can work side by side with a medical team in providing additional non-medical care.
