No matter how much we try to clean dust, it always keeps coming back! It’s almost unavoidable to remove completely. We can clean our homes from top to bottom every week, but it will never stop the amount of tiny dust particles that settle all over our things.
While we wont ever be able to get rid of the dust completely, there are simple cleaning tricks that can help us prevent it from taking over our homes.
Change Your Bedding
Dust loves to live in our bedding. Our pillows, sheets, mattresses are full of it. Often, we don’t wash our bedsheets as much as we should but cleaning our bedsheets can help limit the amount of dust. Wash your sheets at least once a week to help keep those dust particles at baby.
Keep a Clutter-Free Home
Don’t let your home build up with piles of clothing, toys, books, and more. Cleaning around them won’t ever take care of the dust that has settled on them. Items, such as throw pillows, and blankets can produce lots of dust, so perhaps consider limiting the number of accessories in your home.
Clean from Top to Bottom
Cleaning from the top surfaces first and working your way down is a very important trick to keep in mind to limit the dust in your home. You’ll be able to capture most of the dust by cleaning this way.
Use an Air Purifier
An air purifier can help prevent the dust in your home from settling on the surfaces. It can also help limit the amount of cleaning you need to do. An air purifier can clean the air from chemicals, bacteria, mold, and pet hair. It also helps those with allergies or asthma symptoms.
Upholstery furniture can be magnets and produce dust. The fibers in the upholstery can be produced every time someone sits on the furniture. Regularly vacuum the furniture to keep the loose fibers in check.
Forget Feather Dusters
Using feathered dusters can create issues of causing dust to move and settle elsewhere in your home. Use a damp cloth or moist towelette instead to wipe down surfaces when dusting.
Use the Right Vacuum
A vacuum with a HEPA filter can make the all the difference in your home. Vacuums with this type of filter is great for sucking up dust and keeping it trapped. If you want to further limit the dust in your home vacuum carpets and rugs twice a week, especially if you have pets.
Change Your Furnace Filter
If your home has a furnace, then you are equipped with a great air purifier. Of course, this means you have been changing the filters regularly. Replacing the filters can help stop any dust particles from entering your home area. It’s important to replace or clean it every year so it works properly.
