Dust-Free Home

September 19, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Having a dust-free home isn’t difficult, but it takes a serious commitment and a housekeeping strategy that addresses the dust and its causes. Whether your motive is cleanliness or to eliminate the cause of some allergies and asthma symptoms, it will be worth it.

• Try to dust your home at least twice a week. Dust the tallest items and work your way down. Dust picture frames, blinds, baseboards and anything that stands out from the wall.
• Feather dusters can spread more dust than they collect compared to microfiber cloths that attracts dust because they have an electrostatic charge.
• Filters on heating and air-conditioning systems should be changed often not only to remove dust from the air but to increase the efficiency of the units themselves. Special HEPA filters can improve the overall indoor air quality.
• Frequently changing the bag or emptying the container in your vacuum is helpful in eliminating dust.
• Vacuum the floors at least once a week. Vacuum under furniture and periodically, move appliances to clean behind and underneath. Use the proper attachments to vacuum upholstered furniture and under cushions.
• Eliminate dust magnets like carpet, heavy drapes and upholstered furniture. Consider hard surface flooring like wood or tile instead of carpet.
• Keep windows closed to keep dust out.
• Clean your pillows and drapes.
• Damp mopping and dusting with plain water helps hold the dust and is environmentally friendly.
• A humidifier can eliminate static electricity which holds dust.
• Air purifiers circulate are and capture dust and other pollutants.
