You hate dust.
No matter how hard you clean, it just keeps coming back. It sends you into allergic fits and prevents you from relaxing and enjoying your home.
While there’s no guaranteed way to rid all the dust from your house, you can take steps to ensure that it stays to a minimum so that your home continues to look and feel its best. Read on to learn more about the harm dust causes and ways to remove and prevent dust buildup in your home.
Harmfulness of Dust
You may have never realized that dust can pose a serious hazard to your health. Most people are allergic to dust mites, which can trigger mild to severe reactions such as itchy eyes and a runny or stuffy nose. Not only can you suffer allergies from dust, but it can also trigger asthma attacks, cause dermatitis and eczema and even interfere with brain development.
Dust also affects the functionality of your electronic devices. It can get in between keyboard keys and remote buttons, and it can even slowly kill your computer by affecting the functionality of the tower’s fans.
Overall, both you and your home will benefit from the removal of as much dust as possible.
How to Properly Dust Your Home
Dust tends to extensively build up on TV screens, computer monitors and keyboards, landline phones and other household electronics. And with the growing number of electronics in an average household, it’s becoming even more important to check each area thoroughly. You should also regularly check countertops, windowsills, tables and other household surfaces — especially areas that you don’t often use or clean.
Use a reliable cleaning spray and a microfiber cloth to remove dust along surfaces and in between electronics’ keys and buttons. For an exceptionally deep clean, rub a used dryer sheet along stands, keyboards, mice and other surfaces to both wipe away dust and repel future dust and dirt with the sheet’s anti-static properties.
It’s also crucial to know steps for properly cleaning electronic devices. For televisions, computer screens and delicate fabrics, check the manufacturer’s directions before applying any cleaning product. Never spray any cleaners directly onto a surface, but rather spray onto the cloth and wipe gently.
Preventing Dust With Regular Cleaning
Unsurprisingly, surfaces like windowsills and unattended knickknacks tend to harbor dust that builds up over time. A scheduled cleaning routine minimizes the risk of excess dust settling on surfaces or in crevices.
Pick a room in your house to thoroughly clean each week. Check fans, air conditioning and heating units and other overlooked items throughout your home to prevent buildup. Thoroughly scrub the areas with cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth.
