Ditch the Dust Mites: Tips and Tricks to Keep Dust at Bay

Ditch the Dust Mites: Tips and Tricks to Keep Dust at Bay

The fall and winter season offer your home a bit of an escape from dust. WIth the colder months comes the chance to seal up the windows and make your home nice and cozy for the season. That means you can begin ditching the dust for the season, and keep your home feeling fresh and clean. But the problem is, how do you get all of the dust that currently resides in your home out of it?

Start by dusting every few weeks.

Leading up to the holidays, it is important to eradicate dust from your home to keep the air quality up, and allergies down. Dusting the blades of your fans and any easy-to-reach surfaces is a pretty simple task that helps rid your home of dust. Every few months, a deep dusting of the harder-to-reach spots will benefit you as well.

Be mindful of what you use to dust.

Most feather dusters or other kinds of dusters do not actually lift dust; they just move it around. You want to be sure you use something that will effectively pick up dust from your home's surfaces. Microfiber towels are a great tool for dusting because of their clingy quality. They are cheap and reusable after throwing them in the wash, so keeping a stack of them in your home is one of the best and most affordable ways to keep the dust mites away.

Maximize your efforts.

Dusting sounds like a simple enough chore, but making sure you do things in order can help you make the best use of your time and efforts. Starting from top to bottom with dusting means that you will not have to go over the surfaces twice. Dust can fly around the room, and if you start with lower surfaces and then move to higher surfaces, then you may end up creating a bigger mess for yourself.

Play it smart.

When it comes to dust, it is hard to reach all of it. And if you put in the effort to eliminate dust once you close down the windows for the season, but then run your air conditioning system, you are likely spreading dust that has built up in your air ducts over the season. Hiring professionals to come out and clean your air ducts is one of the best ways to truly clean your home for the holidays. Zerorez® professionals are here to help. We are experts in the field, and we deep clean air ducts regularly to improve the air quality of homes.

Don't forget the carpet.

After dusting and cleaning all of your surfaces, it is important to get your carpets cleaned. Carpets hide dust and pollen that gets tracked in on your shoes, and no matter how many times you vacuum, the dust and pollen does not all get sucked up. Getting a professional carpet cleaning can make the biggest difference in the health of your home because we use a system that reaches deeper than the surface to flush out more of the dust mites than your own personal cleaning methods can. Call Zerorez® to ditch the dust mites and start living in a healthier, happier home this holiday season!
