There are so many cleaning chores that you need to do on a regular basis and dusting is definitely on top of the list.
But there are so many things you can do to prevent dust which will make your life so much easier. These tips I am about to give you will completely change your dusting game! How am I so sure? Because I know they changed mine!
Always clean top to bottom
One of the oldest tricks in the book is to start cleaning from the top and working your way to the bottom. This means that you always need to clean the highest surfaces in the room first and work your way to the floor, of course, leaving the floor last.
Just think about it – why would you clean your floor first and then dust off your kitchen table? All of the impurities that are sitting on the surface of that table will fall straight to the floor you just cleaned!
Change air filters on a regular basis
You always need to make sure that your air filters are functioning properly because otherwise they will get clogged with all sorts of debris, dirt, and dust.
Usually, it is recommended that they last anywhere between a month to three months.
Place an entrance mat
Probably the smartest way to reduce the amount of dirt and dust in your home is to simply use an entrance mat. In fact, I recommend you even have two – one outside the front door and one inside the front door.
That way they will be able to catch the dirt and dust on your shoes without you bringing them into your home.
And make sure you clean and vacuum them often.
Change your sheets often
Do you know the amount of dust that your sheets are absorbing? That is why you need to change them at least once a week!
Consider buying an air purifier
These amazing machines are designed to catch dust. I can’t recommend them enough!
Don’t forget to deep clean your upholstery
Your upholstery, as well as your carpet, absorb a huge percentage of the dirt and dust in your home. That is why it is recommended you have them professionally deep cleaned twice a year. Everything from your curtains, your couch, even your mattress are packed with dust.
