  1. When you are first learning, don't move your arms and feet at the same time! This generally keeps those with orientation difficulties from getting lost.
  2. You need to be careful when you vacuum and not bang into the furniture, as it will damage it.
  3. Check for objects on floor (e.g., shoes and cords) before you vacuum. Some prefer to vacuum barefooted as it helps them notice debris.
  4. If you accidentally vacuum over something, turn the vacuum off immediately and get help.
  5. Divide room into sections, using furniture and walls as reference points. If room is large and there is a great deal of open space in the middle of room, a couple of chairs can be used to mark off a boundary line.
  6. Grasp handle with preferred hand and hold cord in other hand. Beginning at outer edge of first section, push vacuum in a back and forth motion across the floor as far as the arms will comfortably reach (right to left or left to right). Stop hand movement.
  7. Take a step sideways: repeat motion working towards destination.
  8. Step backward one or two steps; repeat motion working back to point of origin.
  9. Continue in this way until section has been covered. If the area is large and landmarks are far apart, then you may choose to clean the same section, the same way, in a crosswise pattern.
  10. Continue to next section, overlapping each area as it is vacuumed.
  11. Replace furniture as each section is finished.
  12. Replace equipment in storage place.

Vacuum under furniture carefully. The vacuum will only go under the furniture so far. If you have to push the handle down to make it go further under, you will be sucking air as the motor and roller will lift off the floor.

Banging into the furniture can leave marks on the furniture and may damage it.

* Make sure to vacuum along the walls - turn vacuum sideways in the area or use canister vacuum or use a damp cleaning cloth.

A damaged power cord could cause electrical shock and/or fire. To minimize this possibility, observe the following precautions:

  1. Do not run cleaner over power cord.
  2. Avoid closing doors on power cord, pulling it around sharp edges, or placing sharp-edged objects on it.
  3. Wind cord no tighter than necessary to retain it.
  4. When disconnecting power cord from electrical outlet, grasp the plug. Pulling it out by the cord itself can damage cord insulation and internal connections to plug. Also, avoid damage to insulation by keeping cord away from oil and heat.
  5. Whenever possible; plug the vacuum into a standard wall outlet. Use of an extension cord or light socket with inadequate current-carrying capacity could result in electric shock or fire hazard.
  6. Disconnect cleaner from electrical outlet before servicing, such as changing bags or belts. You could receive bodily injury from moving parts of machine should the switch accidentally be turned on.
  7. To avoid fire hazard, do not pick up matches, firewood ashes, or smoking material with cleaner. Check the area to be vacuumed for liquids, sharp objects, or burning substances before vacuuming.
  8. Store the vacuum cleaner indoors in a cool, dry area not exposed to the weather to avoid electrical shock and/or cleaner damage.
  9. The vacuum is designed to pick up dirt and dust particles. Avoid picking up hard or sharp objects with the cleaner to avoid bag breakage, hose clogging, or possible motor damage.

How To Use The Vacuum Cleaner:

Carpet should be cleaned regularly over heavily traveled areas, and once a week over the entire carpet, covering small areas at a time.

The Dust Bag:

The dust bag plays a very important role in the efficiency of a vacuum cleaner. The bag traps dirt and also allows air to pass through. Therefore, to keep the cleaner operating at maximum efficiency, change the dust bag frequently, and do not allow it to become full.

Flat Screen Television

When you want to clean the glass face of the flat screen television, first turn it OFF and unplug. Wipe the front and back with a lint-free cloth to remove dust. Avoid spraying water or a liquid cleaner directly on the TV screen. Periodically use a soft cloth dampened with flat screen television cleaner. 

CRT Television Set

When you want to clean the glass face of the CRT television, first turn it OFF and unplug. Wet a soft cloth in lukewarm water mixed with dish washing detergent. Make sure that no drops of moisture are squeezed onto glass. Don't wipe the glass dry. Let it air-dry before you turn the set back on again. If your television set is within a wooden cabinet, any good furniture cleaner and polish will help preserve the finish on the wood. Do not place objects that are made of rubber or plastic on top of the cabinet unless the cabinet is protected by a cloth or place mat. This is because a chemical reaction may occur, causing permanent damage such as color changes or warping. Non-wood cabinets should be cleaned with a mild soap solution. Use a soft cloth. Rinse with clear water before drying with a cloth.

  7. Flush a second time with brush in bowl to rinse the cleaner out of the brush.
  8. Tap brush handle lightly on rim to remove excess water.

  1. Sweeper should survey the area to be swept. Pick out specific landmarks (i.e., stove edge, table leg, corner of counter, edge of sink). Try to mentally break area into sections.
  2. Locate broom and dustpan. Put dustpan in a chosen spot; which is easily accessible and just out of immediate sweeping area. Feel the bristles on the end of the broom and identify the side with the longer bristles. This side should always be pointed away from sweeper.
  3. If sweeper is willing, she should remove her shoes and socks. This will make her much more sensitive to the dirt on the floor.
  4. Go to a designated starting point in room. Sweeper's side should be near the designated landmark (wall or counter).
  5. Grasp top of handle with preferred hand and middle of handle with the other hand. Now place sweeping surface of broom in corner (remember long end of bristle always goes away from sweeper). Be sure bristle surface of broom completely hits floor and is parallel to wall. This is done easily by loosening grasp on handle; the sweeper should be able to feel this.
  6. Now gently pull broom parallel to wall and just in front of foot. (A brisk motion would make dirt fly and it will then be harder for sweeper to keep up with). Be sure to have a landmark just in front of the sweeper's foot. This is very important, as sweeper will come back to this point in a few moments. (The landmark does not have to be permanent. The sweeper might put a can on the counter just in front of her foot).
  7. Sweeper's foot is also a landmark as the dirt is now just in front of it. Now take a half step or broom width step back, reach with broom to and repeat gentle sweeping motion leaving dirt in front of foot. Repeat this process 3 or 4 times.
  8. Now reach broom out directly in front of foot and gently pull broom towards your foot. There should be an accumulation of dirt in a line parallel to end wall and directly in front of foot. *Four or five strokes should be sufficient.
  9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 until sweeper backs up to end of room. Sweeper now has the option of picking up the dirt or leaving it in a pile. If dirt is left in a pile, be sure it is clearly land-marked.
  10. Sweeper should now return to spot where she marked her original stopping point. Repeat steps. (Note: there should be about a six-inch overlap over the area just swept).
  11. When picking up dirt, if student has difficulty using the dustpan; a damp paper towel or cleaning cloth works well. They can also use a Dust buster.

Use glass cleaner and paper towels, or fill sink with dishwashing detergent, using dishcloth to clean and dish towels to dry.
