How to Cut Down on Dust in the Home

As many homeowners know, dust is everywhere. From your car and your office to our home, dust settles on surfaces and requires frequent cleaning to keep it at bay. Dust can not only be inconvenient, but it can also cause allergies symptoms and aggravate asthma, making your home a place of discomfort rather than enjoyment.  

In addition to irritating those with asthmas and allergies, breathing in high levels of dust can increase your risk of lung diseases such as siderosis, asbestosis, and hard metal disease. Controlling the amount of dust in your home is not only crucial to your comfort but is also essential in protecting you and your family’s health.

Methods for Removing Dust from Your Home

Because dust can be found anywhere in your home and comes back after every cleaning, it may be difficult to find the most efficient way to rid your home of dust. There are a variety of ways to help reduce the dust in your home including:

  • Changing bedding regularly
  • Removing clutter from floors
  • Dusting rugs and pillows outside
  • Cleaning surfaces from top to bottom to ensure you catch all dust

With these methods, you can significantly reduce the amount of dust in your home. However, the best way to reduce dust in the home and improve your home’s air quality is to prevent dust by using a quality air filter.

An air filter works by filtering particles, like dust, as well as pollutants, allergens, pathogens out of the air. This will not only reduce the amount of dust in your home, but it will also reduce bacteria, dander, and odors in the air, improving your home’s overall air quality.

Another way to help reduce the dust in your home is to have your air ducts cleaned regularly every three to five years.
