Remove dust from furniture and floors

It’s definitely not the most pleasant activity of the day, but it should not take more than a few minutes. Wiping dust on furniture and floors should be a common activity such as washing dishes.

Replace those large rugs

Carpets are some of the biggest sources of dust in the house and no matter how much you vacuum, they will still continue to retain dust. If you want to reduce the amount of dust in the house simply discard them or at least replace them with smaller rugs that are easier to clean and wash.

Wash curtains

In case you didn’t know, curtain gather a lot of dust in a month. Therefore, if you want to prevent the accumulation of too much dust in the house, we advise you to wash curtains once a month. Use a gentle detergent and let them dry for a couple of days before hanging them back.

Opt for a humidifier

When it comes to getting rid of dust, it’s advisable to keep the humidity in the room between 40% and 50%. A dry room attracts dust and makes it harder to erase. In order to do so we recommend installing a humidifier in your house. The main purpose of humidifiers is to increase the level of humidity to a normal level.

Remove dust from decorative items

Remove dust from the ornamental pieces, especially in rooms where you sit the most, the living room and bedroom. Wood, metal and plastic are harder to erase with just dust cloths. If you own many canvas and picture frames around the house, take them down first and then clean them with a vacuum cleaner.
