5 Tips to Get Rid of Dust in Your Home


Dust. It’s something we all live with and can’t seem to get away from. So what can you do to limit the amount of dust in your home? Here are our top 5 tips:


1) Upgrade your furnace filter:

Installing an electrostatic-charged furnace filter, which attracts and (the most important part) captures dust particles, can greatly reduce the amount of dust floating in your home if you have forced air heating.


2) Rotate your bed and bedding:

Your treasured bed can be a magnet for dust. One way to counter this is by changing your bed linens on a weekly basis and washing them in hot water. Furthermore, you should also flip and rotate your bed every season (four times per year) if you have a box-spring mattress.


3) Keep your closet floors clean:

Along with your bed, your closet can also be a magnet for dust. Fabric, hair and skin particles all like to settle at the bottom of your closet. So if you keep a tidy closet (especially the floor), this will help you better manage the dust in your home.


4) Vacuum. Vacuum. Vacuum:

Vacuum the carpet, your furniture, your closet floors (see tip 3). Basically anything that is carpeted or upholstered you should vacuum.


5) Dust:

It sounds so painfully obvious but dusting will help get rid of the dust in your home. You just have to do it the right way. Feather dusters don’t do the trick. You need to actually gather the dust and not just push it around. Use a microfiber cloth instead and you will see better results.


6) BONUS! Groom your pets:

Regularly brushing your furry friends (in the yard or outside the home if possible) can help contain some of the dust, dander and hair your pets can leave behind.


Hopefully by following these tips you can help get rid of the dust floating in your home – helping you breathe easier.
