Is your home overwhelmingly dusty? It seems like no matter how much you dust and clean you never really finish the job. From dusty ceiling fans, leaky HVAC units, and dusty tables and chairs, your home is constantly under a constant barrage of dust and dirt. A dusty home can cause you and your family to experience allergies, respiratory conditions, and other health issues that are completely avoidable. At Nevada Pure Air, we believe that every home should have high indoor air quality and a clean and dust-free home. Here are a few easy fixes for dusty houses.
Don’t Dry Dust
One of the biggest mistakes that people make when they are dusting their home is dry dusting.
The thing about dust, that many people tend to forget or ignore, is that in order to clean it, you can’t just brush it off of a surface. Many people will take a duster or a cleaning rag and merely wipe the dust off of their ceiling fan, curtains, and dressers and let that dust hit the floor.
The issue with this is that the dust that you just wiped away will stick around and coat your home again. The solution? Clean surfaces with a damp rag. Dust will stick to the rag which you can rinse off and clean for use later. This prevents dust from falling on the floor and making its way through your home again.
Avoid Tracking Dirt In
Don’t want dirt and dust in your home? Easy. Don’t track it into your home. This means that you need to have a shoe-free zone in your home, preferably near doorways. If you don’t have a mudroom in your home, you can leave a storage bin near the door to neatly place your shoes in to limit how much dirt you track in your home.
Mop and Vacuum Frequently
Additionally, a great way to prevent dust in your home is to make sure that you frequently clean your home. Mopping and vacuuming multiple times a week will keep dust and dirt from settling in your home which will help make your home cleaner and improve your indoor air quality.
Schedule A Duct Cleaning
One of the biggest culprits of a dusty home is a leaky and dirty air duct and HVAC unit. Your heating and cooling system cycle air throughout your home and as a result carry dust and dirt around your home. Having your air ducts cleaned by a professional air duct and heating vent cleaning company a few times a year can keep your home clean and clear of dust.
