Maintaining a clean home is an ongoing process and it takes work and dedication, but it doesn’t have to consume your free time either. Today, we at Nadia’s House Cleaning would like to share some tips, hacks, and recommendations to simplify dusting and lessen the time it takes to get it done while making it more efficient.
How Can I Be Better at Dusting?
1) Dust Prior to Vacuuming. Bits of dirt and dust will fall to the floor as you dust. You won’t have to vacuum the same floor twice by dusting first and vacuuming second.
2) Work Top and Down. Begin at the top when dusting wall units or shelves. First dust all objects on the surfaces, and then dust the shelf, both underneath and behind the objects.
3) Use Microfiber Cloths and Dusters. Use a damp, clean, microfiber cloth for best results. Hold the cloth by a corner and lightly mist it with clean water from a spray bottle to dampen the cloth. Without leaving moisture streaks behind on surfaces, you want the cloth to be damp enough to pick up dust. In in a safe and green way, using this method will ensure that your home’s surfaces and furniture are cleaned. Also, when feather dusting, opt for the microfiber duster instead of the traditional feathers.
4) Clean Air Vents, Ceiling fans, Baseboards, Walls, and Door Frames. The ventilation system is one part of the house that probably doesn’t get enough cleaning. According to the manufacturer specifications, you should be cleaning out your air filter and changing your air filter. Also, the vents need cleaning regularly. This may mean taking off the vent covers and wiping them down as well as hiring someone to clean out the entire ventilation system once or twice a year. Air duct cleaning helps control dust from spreading around the house and will make the air cleaner for easy, healthier breathing.
5) Dust Frequently. Dusting doesn’t happen frequently enough in most homes. You should be dusting at least once a week if you want to keep the dust levels down. Dusting a few times, a week is not a bad idea, though there is a lot of foot traffic in some houses. Since dust can build up over time as you don’t want to leave any room uncleaned, make sure that the entire house is dusted regularly, as well. If you own a commercial building or offices as well is especially true. Why most business owners hire office cleaners to do the job properly and regularly, commercial buildings tend to get dusty very quickly. To make sure everything is cleaned properly and no employees are suffering from pollen or dust allergy, these office cleaners make sure to get the air vents & all the areas in the office.
6) Vacuum Often and Change Vacuum’s Filters Periodically. Vacuuming should be done daily, if possible, to manage the dust. As per the manufacturer guidelines, replace or wash your vacuum filters. As you vacuum, a dirty vacuum filter often causes the vacuum cleaner to spew out dust back into the air. Since clogged filters are unable to trap dust, this makes your dusting efforts redundant.
