If you are sneezing, wheezing or have watery eyes in your home then you may have dust mites. Here are a few handy tips for getting your home dust and dirt free and help you breathe better, too.
Dust is everywhere in your home, even in the unlikeliest of places. So, to keep the dust and dirt out of your home sometimes you need to do more than the basic cleaning. We have a few handy tips to help you with the challenge of keeping dirt and dust out of your home.
Sweep and mop your floors
To keep the dirt and dust out of your home, you need to sweep and vacuum regularly, especially in the high-traffic areas of your home. Sweeping and vacuuming alone doesn’t get all the dirt and dust so mopping afterward can help collect the dust that is left.
Clean your furniture
Your couch cushions and rugs are another place that hoards dirt and dust. Beat your cushions and rugs using a broom handle or a carpet beater until you no longer see dust coming out of them. For best results, you can clean your upholstery to remove dirt and dust that has built up over time.
Dirt and dust accumulates when your animals come in from outside or when they shed. Regularly brush and wash your pet. When you do wash or brush them, try doing it outside or in a tub to avoid getting loose dirt, animal dander and animal hair into your home.
Keep the dirt outside
A doormat really helps to keep the dust and dirt outside. Some of the best kinds of doormats are those which are made of rubber. They keep mud and dirt from being brought inside. When people enter your home, you may want to suggest that they remove their shoes. Taking your shoes off at the door prevents excess dirt and dust from being dragged further into your home.
Clean your vents, filters and airducts
Dust collects when air travels inside your home. Regularly cleaning your air vents and your air conditioning or heating filters can prevent dust and dirt from collecting within your home. However, sometimes you can forget that your air ducts need to be cleaned to prevent microscopic bacteria, debris and allergens from getting in your home, too. Dirty air ducts will also reduce the energy efficiency of your air conditioning or heating unit.
Dust travels with Air
When you open your windows, you are not just getting incredible fresh air but you are also getting the dirt and dust that travels with it. Limiting the amount of time you leave your windows open can prevent dirt and dust from gathering in your home and getting into the nooks and crannies that you don’t see.
