How Do I Reduce Dust In My House?

Reduce Dust

Anyone who suffers from allergies can tell you: they’re for real. And the allergens inside the house, like molds, house dust, dust mites, and pet dander can be just as intense as outdoor triggers like springtime pollen. To help allergy-proof your home, prevent dust and reduce the symptoms of hay fever and allergic asthma, The Mayo Clinic recommends a weekly house cleaning routine.

Cleaning Tips to Prevent Allergies

  • Damp-mopping hard floors
  • Removing dust from all surfaces including easy-to-forget ones like ceiling fans, windowsills, window frames, and the tops of doors
  • Use a damp microfiber rag to collect the dust; feather dusters just redistribute the dust
  • Vacuuming carpet, furniture cushions and pillows. Use a micro-filter vacuum bag or a HEPA filter
  • Shaking out rugs and give pillows a good whack (outside!)

Other Allergy-Reducing Cleaning Tips

  • Replacing your HVAC air filters every two to three months with HEPA air filters
  • Inspecting air ducts for dust build up on the duct walls and clean if needed
  • Steam cleaning carpets every six months
  • Washing drapes and curtains
  • Run a HEPA air purifier in the room
  • Clean air vent registers with the brush attachment on your vacuum
  • Keep your house cooler (70⁰ F or below) and drier (relative humidity at 50% or below) to create indoor conditions that are less hospitable to dust mites and mold spores
