The average home collects over 40 pounds of dust a year. Dust in homes contains small amounts of plant pollen, human and animal hairs, textile fibers, paper fibers, minerals from outdoor soil, human skin cells, and materials that may be found in homes.
Dust can also cause diseases, colds, and general poor health. It is vital to the cleanliness of your home to reduce dust in your home. Here are tips on reducing dust in your home.
- Change Your Furnace Filter: Checking your furnace filter can help your furnace run clean and reduce dust pushed out in your ducts. Installing an electrostatic-charge furnace filter helps captures dust particles and can greatly reduce the amount of dust floating in your home.
- Change Your Bedding: Beds can be a magnet for dust. Changing your bed linens on a weekly basis and washing them in hot water can reduce dust. You should also flip and rotate your bed eery season if you have a box-spring mattress.
- Clothes Closet Doors: Keeping your closet doors closed can reduce fabric, hair, and skin particles to settle at the bottom of your closet.
- Vacuum Your Carpets: Vacuuming the carpet can reduce dust and keep your air clean. Vacuums with Hepa filters reduce dust and keep your carpets looking fresh.
