Tips for Getting Rid of Dust

There is not a single person in this world who likes walking into their living room and seeing dust covering every inch of their furniture. And sometimes it can seem as if all your cleaning efforts are for nothing because the dust just keeps coming back. Well, we want to give you a few good tips to help get rid of that dust once and for all and keep your home beautifully clean.

Invest in Welcome Mats

You don’t have to get elaborate mats with your family’s monogram or a cheesy saying, but you should add two mats to every entrance of your home — one outside and one inside. These mats help catch and trap dirt and dust before it has the chance to get into your home in the first place.

Groom Your Pets

It doesn’t matter if your pets hate the groomer or run from bathtime. Their fur can hold onto a lot of dust and debris, and once they run and roll around your home, the dust can (will) fly off their coats and onto your floors, walls, rugs, and furniture. Make sure to brush and bathe your pets regularly to keep your home dust-free.

Get Rid of Trinkets

It makes sense that the more surfaces it has to cling to, the more dust you’ll notice in your home. Well, if you have wall-units or shelves covered in photo frames and little trinkets, you’re giving dust plenty of places to settle. Put away some of the knick-knacks to get rid of some of that dust.

Change Your Air Filters

Dirty HVAC filters don’t catch as much dust and debris, so they’re able to simply float around your home instead. To remedy this, change your air filter each month so it’s always clean.

Invest in an Air Filter

If you really want to get rid of dust and ensure your home’s air is pure and clean, consider investing in a whole-home air filtration system. It will remove almost all of dust, pollen, and other particles from your air to give you near-perfect indoor air quality.
