Let’s face it, dust is unavoidable. But that doesn’t mean it has to take over your home. Check out these tips for keeping dust under control.
Use a microfiber or electrostatic cloth rather than an old rag or duster. These cloths capture the dust rather than move it around on the surface.
Use a vacuum with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. Empty your vacuum canister and bags often. Change belts when needed and keep the brush wheel free of hair and foreign objects.
Replace the air filter on your heating and air vents according to the filter recommendation. If you have pets or allergies, you may need to replace filters more often to ensure optimal air filtration.
Use an angled, synthetic-bristle broom for tiled or uneven floors. This will allow you to more easily pick up smaller particles. After sweeping, finish off with a damp mop. • Be mindful of the textiles in your home. Drapery, upholstered furniture, and carpet are magnets for collecting dust.
Avoid clutter as much as possible. The less clutter you have, the easier is to keep your home clean.
