Dust is literally the worst, right?
It’s always there, shows up the day after you clean, and if you do anything that involves moving air around, there it is, dotting your furniture and surfaces – mocking you.
Dry climates like Colorado’s, especially with so much pollen from trees and grasses, make for a horrible time dusting. Also: because dust is so pervasive, if you have any hint of seasonal allergies, just pushing the dust around can make your sniffles and sneezes so. Much. Worse.
Nobody wants to be miserable in their own home.
When we dust for clients, we focus not just on the easy to see areas:
We also bust dust on the harder-to-reach areas, like:
- Wall fixtures
- Tops of Books
- Under/behind beds, cabinets, and really any upward-facing surfaces that have airflow
- The tops of light fixtures in bathrooms
Vacuuming softer surfaces helps to keep them dust-free:
- Duvets/throw pillows and blankets
- Couches – especially in between cushion cracks and backings.
Because dust lingers and grows on every surface, we like to make sure to capture it rather than release it back into the air or push it around. A Swiffer duster is important for home dust-busting, but a slightly damp microfiber cloth can do the trick, too.
If you happen to have one of those handy-dandy mopping robots, you can stick them on hardwood floors to clean under beds (an area that becomes SURPRISINGLY DUSTY!) – and we recommend moving your couches at least once each season to vacuum (any space that has airflow can collect dust!)
If you’re getting frustrated or overwhelmed with dust and allergies this season, please, please, please give us a call. We can clean the dust out from top to bottom when you’re ready: (970) 215-2224
