How to Keep a Dust-Free Home

Dust can really be a nuisance especially when you want to sell your Hoboken home and you need to keep it spotless. It can be a never-ending battle since dust can come from so many places. It has been said that the majority of dust in homes comes from outside, carried inside on shoes and clothing.

Surprisingly, there are also many inside sources of dust, including our own bodies, which shed hair and particles of skin. Fabrics also create dust by shedding bits of material. Forced-air heating and cooling systems and pets also contribute to the volume of dust in your home.

To take control over dust, the most important thing you can do is vacuum on a regular basis. A vacuum equipped with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter will reduce the amount of dust in your home. It’s important to regularly vacuum floors and rugs, but don’t forget about upholstery and bedding.

Be sure to place door mats at all of the entrances in your home to be able to wipe your shoes before entering. Don’t forget about closet floors, they can be major dust collectors so be sure to keep them clean.

When you dust furniture, use damp cloths or special dust-collecting wipes. Try not to use dry rags or a feather duster, since they will just move the dust from one surface to another.
