No one wants to live in a dusty home. Not only is it unsightly, but it can also cause allergy symptoms to flare up and worsen, and it is just plain unpleasant when you think about the fact that it is made up of dead skin cells as well as pollen, material fibers, and so on. It’s also not a lot of fun to have to be constantly dusting your home, I’m sure you will agree!

The good news is, that although you can never eliminate dust from your home 100 percent, there are lots of things you can do to reduce the amount you have to deal with, including the following:

Change your bedding more often

If you want to get a handle on the dust in your home, then the bedroom is a good place to start. Changing your sheets at least once a week will help to minimize the number of dead skin cells, dust, and dust mites in your home significantly. It will also ensure that your bed is always fresh and inviting, which should make it much easier for you to get a good night’s sleep too. 

Replace older windows

Old windows tend to let a lot more air, and therefore, dust, pollen, and dirt, into the home than newer windows – especially those that offer between-the-glass blinds. Therefore, booking a Renewal by Andersen window replacement is definitely a good way to dramatically minimize the amount of dust in your home, while also adding value to your property and improving its curb appeal too – what’s not to love?

Reduce the clutter

If you have a lot of clutter in your home, you have a lot more things that will collect dust and it will be a whole lot harder for you to effectively clean and remove that dust from your home. Taking some time to declutter and get rid of anything you do not truly love or truly need, will mean that your home has less potential for collecting dust, and you will be able to open up the space and make it more useable for you and your family too.

Invest in an air purifier

Air purifiers are great little gadgets. Although they will probably not get rid of all of the dust in your home, they are able to filter quite a lot of it, and if you have allergies, this can be particularly useful, but even if you don’t and you just want to reduce the amount of dust in your home, they are a valuable addition to any place.

Clean it thoroughly

Many of us think we are doing a good job of keeping our homes clean and tidy, but we are only actually cleaning the parts that are visible to us and our guests. If you are serious about keeping clutter under control you need to be serious about cleaning your home from top to bottom too, That means cleaning under the couch and dusting those high ceilings, even if they are not easily visible and even if it might be more effort to reach them effectively.

Clean with microfiber cloths

If you want to reduce the amount of dust in your home, then switch to using microfiber cloths, if you aren’t already. Why? Because they are far better than most alternatives at picking up dust particles, which means you can more easily remove dust from your home without having to work so hard at the cleaning. When you’re using microfiber cloths, you absolutely will not just be moving the dust around, you will be picking it up and eliminating it!

Groom your pets

If you have pets, they can be a huge source of dust, dirt, and dander, which can make your home look untidy. There is not much you can do to eliminate this mess completely, but you can definitely minimize its impact on your home by ensuring that your pets are regularly groomed, The better groomed they are, the less likely to shed they are, and the cleaner they are, the less first, pollen and dust they will bring into your home in the first place. Whether you do it at home or take them to the poodle parlor, keep them clean and tidy if you want your home to be the same.

If you want to spend less time sneezing and less time dusting, then put some of these tips into action in your home and you are sure to see a reduction in dust in no time at all!
