We all know that dust can be a major culprit in homes. Dust build-up can even contribute to a variety of health and allergy problems. Let's take a look at some of the ways you can effectively rid your home of dust:
De-Clutter Your Home
You know all those old clothes and shoes you've been meaning to throw out? Items such as those can collect dust over time if they are not getting any use. For seasonal attire, stow away any clothes in a plastic bin that you don't plan on wearing until the appropriate season comes around.
Clean From the Top Down
By wiping down shelves or other objects from the top first, you'll ensure that you'll be able to clean up any other dust particles that fell down to the bottom. Also be sure to use a damp cloth or paper towel instead of a feather duster, which can cause dust to shift around rather than trapping it.
Change Your Bedding Every Week
Dust mites are often attracted to bedding such as sheets and pillows. It is recommended to use allergen-proof covers and to change out or wash your bed covers and pillow cases once a week.
Vacuum Your Carpets Regularly
Vacuum your carpets at least once a week (preferably more) and use a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA certified filter to prevent dust from circulating back into the air. In addition, a professional carpet cleaning is highly effective at removing dust mites from deep within the fibers of your carpet.
