Didn’t think you’d hear “dusting” and “easy” in the same sentence, did you? Dusting is one of the least favorite of cleaning chores for many people. It often involves hard-to-reach places, and no one likes the runny nose and sneezing that follows. But it is possible to make dusting easy. Take a look at the following tips for getting the most out of your dusting.
Forget the dusting wands.
When a homeowner is dusting in films or TV shows, they are often depicted using a feather duster or other type of dusting wand. While dusting wands are commonly associated with, well, dusting, they make it a lot more difficult than it needs to be. Here are some great alternatives:
- Dust wipes
- Dust cloths (microfiber and chenille are the best materials)
- Multi-surface dust spray
Feather dusters and wands simply don’t get as much dust as wipes and cloths, and they spread the dust everywhere. A cloth used with a multi-surface dust spray or wet dust wipes will both remove and trap the dust.
Tackle the dust at its source.
Have you ever stopped to think, “where does dust come from?” Most of it comes from outside, and it makes its way indoors through people and vents. Your dusting will be a lot easier by preventing the majority of it from entering your home.
On pollen-heavy days, remove and wash your clothes as soon as possible after coming inside. Door mats can help stop dust tracked in on your shoes. And regular changing of air filters in your HVAC or other air circulation systems will help prevent dust invading your home through vents.
Without regular dusting, it’s hard to get a hold on dust and pollen that may irritate lungs, throats, eyes and even skin indoors. We don’t blame you for not wanting to do it—so give us a call and we’ll take care of it for you!
