Dust is simply a build-up of tiny particles including anything from pet dander to dirt to skin cells. The end result is a gross looking gray fur ball that takes away from the clean look of your home. It can also trigger allergies for some people, making it a hassle in more ways than one. Nobody wants to have dust floating all around their homes so here are a few ways to maintain a dust free home.

Filter The Air

If you have a central air system, be sure to change the filters regularly. There are different types and qualities of filters so make sure you choose the best one for your system. Paper or pleated fabric filters are recommended to reduce dust specifically, as most of them will only filter larger particles in the air. In addition to this, purchasing an air purifier is a good option as well. They are made to trap dust particles, thus cleaning the air and reducing build up.

Regular Cleaning

A simple way to keep dust out of your home is to clean it up. No matter what you do, there are bound to be a few dust bunnies lying around at some point. To help prevent this, be sure to vacuum your carpets and floors on a regular basis. Make sure to change the filter in your vacuum frequently and also pick out a good quality vacuum cleaner. Sweeping and washing the floors also gets rid of a lot of the dust build up in your home. In addition, using dust cloths to wipe down the furniture can clean places that vacuums and brooms can not reach.

Clear The Clutter

Getting rid of the boxes you have stored in the basement and the pile of magazines you never took the time to recycle can really help with dust build up. This makes your home easier to clean and also gets rid of extra items that dust can get stuck in. Believe it or not, cleaning out your closet is also a great way to reduce the amount of dust in your home. Everytime you open your closet door, the small changes in air pressure cause fiber flakes to shed from your clothing onto the floor. These fibers eventually build up and produce dust. Maintaining a clutter free home is a good way to reduce the amount of dust in your home and makes it easier to get rid of the inevitable accumulation.
