Keeping Dust Out of Your Home

Written by 

Dust accumulates so quickly that you might notice it collecting on some surfaces as soon as a week after even a good dusting. Dealing with dust is an important part of house cleaning, but there are ways to help minimize the amount of dust entering your home. This is especially helpful if someone in your family suffers from allergies.

Prevention

Use sturdy doormats. When you place heavy doormats at each door, you'll reduce some of the dust coming into your house on shoes and feet. If you addtionally instruct your family to take their shoes off and leave them just outside the door, you can reduce dirt and pollen coming into your home even more.

Change air filers frequently. The air filters on your air conditioning and heater collect dust from the air. If left too long covered in dust, not only will you see more dust in your house, but you run the hazard of overtaxing your units. By changing air filters ofen, you'll stay on top of dust accumulation in your home as well as keeping your air conditioning and heating units safe.

Reduce clutter. One of the best things you can do to keep dust out of your home starts with reducing the clutter in your house. The more items you have in your house, the more dust you produce and gather over time. Knick knacks, especially, attract dust, so check frequently and dust those items often.

Handling Dust

Check places you don't normally look. The less frequently you check an area, the more likely it is to collect dust unnoticed. Take a close look at the "out of sight, out of mind" places like the top of your appliances, on decorative moldings, and in light fixures.

Dust from the top down. When you dust, start from the higher places and work your way down. You're less likely to have dust settling behind the area you're cleaning when you work this way.

Clean frequently. The more often you clean, the less dust will accumulate between cleanings. It not only minimizes dust accumulation, it makes future cleanings easier. If you find you don't have time to clean regularly, cleaning services might be able to help.

When you reduce the dust in your home, you and your family will breathe more easily every time you walk in the door.
