How to Keep Dust Out!

It’s one of the most frustrating things… moving an item on a bookshelf only to see a clear outline of dust where something was sitting.

Or how about moving a piece of furniture and discovering a herd of “bunnies” has taken up residence.

Dust happens to everyone, even those who attempt to keep their homes spotless. While you can’t keep every last speck of dust out, you can greatly reduce the amount of dust that finds its way into your home.

Here are just a few ways to create a healthier (and more dust-free) home.

Run the HVAC

While you may enjoy having open windows when the weather is nice, using your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is actually better for keeping debris out. As long as you make sure your filters are changed on a regular basis.

Door mats

While dust can become airborne, most soil comes into the home from shoes. Having quality door mats to catch the dirt means less build-up of soil and debris in the home, reducing these particles as well. Leaving shoes on the door mats or at the door is another smart idea, but wear socks or slippers as oils from your feet can make your carpet soil quicker.

Cleaning

Yes, you clean on a regular basis, but some extra effort with the details will help keep the dust out. When dusting tables, desks, bookshelves and other surfaces, use microfiber cloths to better grab the dust. When sweeping the hard floors, follow up with a damp mopping. It will really grab the dust sticking to the floor. Be sure to vacuum not only the top of your area rugs, but also turn them over and vacuum the backs. And for your wall-to-wall carpet, vacuum several times a week, especially in high traffic areas and entryways.

Floor Coverings
Carpet is best for trapping and holding airborne particles, but if you prefer hard floors then make sure to clean them daily using a microfiber type dry mop or a vacuum with a hard surface attachment.
