Hi. This is Travis on behalf of Expert Village talking to you about vacuuming, and what I want to talk to you about now is how do you vacuum a room? Where do you start? Do you back yourself into a corner? It's almost like painting, you know...painting a floor. What you want to do is when you come into a room, depending on whether it's your living room or your bedroom, what you are going to want to do is you are going to want to make sure that you probably end up at the entrance door into that particular room. What that's going to do is it is going to allow you to hide your footprints after your vacuuming. You know, a lot of people are tedious about...say you've got company coming over, and you want them to know that you vacuumed. Well, you are going to want to start on the outer edges of the room and pull yourself back to that doorway. That way, you leave no footprints. You leave no track marks and you can see that the room has been freshly vacuumed. And so, in this particular case, what I would do is I would start over towards the corner and back my way out. And I'll just show you what I mean by how...what we can actually do is put a couple of feet marks in the carpet. I'm not sure if that's going to show up real good on the film, but we'll do that and then I'll show you how we can disappear that and give it that freshly vacuumed look. So you can see how nice that looks when you actually pull the carpet back and there's no footprints, giving you a nice, fresh look.
