How To Reduce the Amount of Dust in Your Home

You’ve got a life to live, and the last thing on your mind is dusting. I get it, y’all—I feel the same. Still, dust is the gift that keeps on giving, and once it’s out of control, you may need a chisel to remove it. Via pets, a family, and the front door opening to guests, dust easily creates a home in the corners, covers the HVAC vents, hides on the mantle, and lives anywhere else it feels like landing. Follow along as I discuss how to reduce the amount of dust in your home so y’all will no longer be afraid to turn the ceiling fan on.

Vacuum Often

To keep dust at bay, vacuum—then vacuum some more. Vacuums are great at picking up dust particles that we can’t see. Set a schedule that includes vacuuming at least once a week to keep the dust at bay.

However, a dirty vacuum cleaner only spreads more dust. Most vacuums are pretty simple to take apart and clean; there’s no need to go at it with a screwdriver. Simply change or wash the filters, and keep the dirt-collecting container emptied.

Groom the Pets

Yes, sweet little Fluffy is creating more dust for y’all to clean. That’s okay—keep adoring your pets. However, keep them groomed as well. A well-groomed animal sheds less and spreads less dander. Put a regularly scheduled grooming time on the books for dogs, and keep the cat brushed.

Purify the Air

Place air purifiers anywhere you can in the house. They catch dust particles, mold spores, and other air impurities that we never see. As a bonus, air purifiers help relieve seasonal allergy symptoms, which dust often aggravates. Filtering the air in bedrooms and living spaces where you spend a lot of time is a great place to start. You may eventually like a full-house filter to seriously cut down on dust.

Wash the Bedding

How often do y’all wash your bedding? You may be surprised to know it’s best to wash it once a week to cut down on dust. When you do get it in the wash, clean the bedding with hot water to kill dust mites. I don’t know about y’all, but the thought of dust mites is enough to make me want to wash my bedding every day.

Declutter Your Home

Decluttering is a cure for many ailments, including dust. Dust loves to hang out in the nooks and crannies of all your stuff. Less stuff equals less dust—or at least fewer places for it to hide. Make dusting easier and quicker by keeping clutter to a minimum.

Cleaning is a must in life, but there are ways to make it more tolerable. Follow these tips to reduce the amount of dust in your home, and you’ll have more time for the good stuff in life.
