Dust may be a fact of life, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it on a daily basis. Controlling dust in your Calgary home simply takes a bit of hard work, and we’re here to give you some great tips that will get you started.
Replace Your Filters
Your home’s HVAC system utilizes an air filter that will help prevent dust from being distributed throughout your home. This filter will clog up after a while, so make sure you’re replacing them, as needed.
Purchase an Air Purifier
Air purifiers stop dust from circulating and can be especially beneficial to household members who are especially sensitive to the dust in the air. Just be aware that you’ll need one for each room you want to keep dust-free.
Vacuum on a Regular Basis
Many homeowners complain about what’s in the air, but don’t take the time to tackle it in the most obvious way possible. Vacuuming two or three times a week can do wonders to controlling dust in your home.
Dust with Microfiber Cloths
If you use a feather duster in your home, what you’re really doing is stirring up most of the dust instead of getting rid of it. Microfiber cloths use an electrostatic charge that will capture the dust, instead of spreading it around.
Wash Your Bedding Weekly
You may not want to think about it, but the truth is that our bedding is a nesting ground for dust. If anyone in your household has been suffering from respiratory problems, washing the bedding on a weekly basis can help.
The more “stuff” you have sitting around your home, the more places for dust to collect. Remove piles of books, boxes, and anything else that might be making your home a safe haven. It’s an easy solution that will definitely improve your home’s air.
