How to Remove Summer Dust from your Home
Posted on July 11th, 2018
Believe it or not, your home is an easy target for dust all-year-round — including the summertime. From your kitchen to the living room, no space it safe from the buildup of these intrusive allergens. If you’re looking for the best way to rid of dust from your home, then here are some helpful tips to follow:
Open the Windows
Feel that the indoor air quality of your home has diminished over time? If that’s the case, then it’s best to keep the windows open. Nine out of ten times, keeping the windows open in your home will not only give you the fresh air that you so rightfully deserve — but it you will notice a difference in the amount of dust buildup in your home.
One of the best ways to open your windows it this: create a path of cross ventilation. For example, if you have a window in the front of a room and windows in the back of the room, directly across from each other, then it’s best to open them up. Reason? This will give you cross ventilation, making your home feel like a summer paradise!
Pro Tip: make sure your AC is turned off when you open the windows to save energy!
Rid of Clutter
Another prominent way that builds dust and debris in your home is with clutter. That’s right: the chotchkies from your world travels will collect dander as time goes by, especially if you don’t dust them regularly. The best solution to this problem? Declutter. Of course, you don’t have to throw away any of your souvenirs — but downsizing will help create less dust buildup in your home!
If you’re not sold on the idea of downsizing your collectibles, then it would be best to clean them thoroughly. Ideally, you’ll want to use a cleaning wipe — but that might deteriorate some of the souvenirs. Solution? Take a dry microfiber cleaning cloth and wipe each of them down. This will not only save time (and your chotchkies) — but it will cut down on the dust in your home!
Pro Tip: if some of your souvenirs can be put outside in your garden, as little statues, then place them around your flower beds for a whimsical look!
