An ongoing process that takes work and dedication is maintaining clean home, but it doesn’t have to consume your free time either. A few hacks, tips, and recommendations to simplify dusting and lessen the time it takes to get it done while making it more efficient is what we at we at American Cleaning Service would like to share today.
How Do I Stop My Home from Being So Dusty?
1) Dust Before Any Vacuuming. While dusting, bits of dirt and dust will naturally fall to the floor. By dusting first and vacuuming second, you won’t have to vacuum the same floor twice.
2) Start at the Top and Work Your Way Down. When dusting wall units or shelves, begin at the top. Both underneath and behind the objects, then dust the shelf after you first dust all objects on the surfaces.
3) Invest in Microfiber Cloths & Dusters for Dusting. For best results, use a damp, clean, microfiber cloth. Lightly mist it with clean water from a spray bottle to dampen the cloth as you hold the cloth by a corner. You want the cloth to be damp enough to pick up dust without leaving moisture streaks behind on surfaces. Using this method will ensure that your home’s surfaces and furniture are cleaned in in a safe and green way. If you opt for the microfiber duster instead of the traditional feathers when feather dusting as well.
4) All Ceiling Fans, Baseboards, Air Vents, Walls, and Door Frames Need to be Dusted. One part of the house that probably doesn’t get enough cleaning is the ventilation system. You should be cleaning out your air filter and changing your air filter. The vents need cleaning regularly as well. This may mean taking off the vent covers and wiping them down as well as hiring someone to clean out the entire ventilation system once or twice a year. It will make the air cleaner for easy, healthier breathing with air duct cleaning, and it also helps control dust from spreading around the house.
5) Dust More Often. In most homes, dusting doesn’t happen frequently enough. If you want to keep the dust levels down, you should be dusting at least once a week. Though there is a lot of foot traffic in some houses dusting a few times, a week is not a bad idea. Make sure that the entire house is dusted regularly as well because dust can build up over time as you don’t want to leave any room uncleaned. This is especially true if you own a commercial building or offices. Why most business owners hire office cleaners to do the job properly and regularly, commercial buildings tend to get dusty very quickly. These office cleaners make sure to get the air vents & all the areas in the office to make sure everything is cleaned properly, and no employees are suffering from pollen or dust allergy.
6) Frequently Vacuum and Periodically Change Vacuum’s Filters. If possible, to manage the dust, vacuum daily. Replace or wash your vacuum filters as per the manufacturer guidelines. A dirty vacuum filter often causes the vacuum cleaner to spew out dust back into the air as you vacuum. This makes your dusting efforts redundant because clogged filters are unable to trap dust.
