What In the Dust Particle!

OMG dust is everywhere! Removing it will surely improve the air quality in your home or office. But what type of duster should you use? What can you do to reduce the amount of dust in your home or facility?

So many questions but we've got the answers!

Trust me we definitely understand. So let's talk dusting. What exactly is dust? According the Merriam-Webster dictionary, dust is fine particles of matter that exist in our home or office. The types of dust particles vary, but think dirt, hair, skin cells, insects, pollution; you get the drift. An excessive amount of dust in a place can cause hay fever, sneezing, coughing, or an increase in asthma attacks if you are asthmatic.

How often should you dust?

We at R & R Cleaning Services recommend that you dust your home at least once a month, unless you have pets. If you do have pets, it is recommended that you dust your home twice a month depending on the number of pets.

What are dusters?

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary a duster is a cloth or brush used for dusting. There are three type of dusters that are typically used when dusting. The Feather duster, Microfiber duster, and wool duster.

Feather dusters - Perfect for light dusting but can be used on all surfaces.

Microfiber dusters - Our recommended duster, best for heavy dusting and can be used on all surfaces.

Wool dusters - All-natural duster best for delicate surfaces but can be used on all surfaces

What is the best method for dusting?

We recommend dusting from top to bottom. As you begin to dust, R & R recommends that you start dusting in one area from the highest object, dusting your way down. Once you have dusted everything from the top to the ground, simply sweep all of the dust into the trash.

How to minimize the dust in your home

According to Endust.com, to help minimize the dust in your home, you should do the following:

  • Remove your shoes before entering your home.

  • Avoid sweeping when possible. Instead use a vacuum with a HEPA filter.

  • Dust with a new or clean duster or cloth each time.

  • Keep pets off furniture and sleeping areas.

  • Use quality air conditioning and heating filters and change them frequently.

  • Seal windows.

  • Clean vents annually.

Dusting can be a very tedious and time consuming task but, with the right equipment, products, and R & R Cleaning Services, dusting can also be very rewarding.
