Dust has a way of showing up uninvited, even when it seems like you just cleaned your Manassas, Virginia, home. But if you’ve noticed more dust than usual lately, it might be time to take things to the next level. From investing in an air purifier to scheduling duct cleaning, here’s how to eliminate dust from your home.
Stick to a Cleaning Schedule
Occasional tidying certainly helps keep dust manageable. But if you want to eliminate this sneeze-inducing substance from your home, you need a defined cleaning schedule.
Once a week, use a soft cloth to capture and remove dust from surfaces. And use a microfiber mop to eliminate dust from hard floors. Vacuum carpets and rugs thoroughly while also remembering to wash bedding, pillowcases and duvet covers. Sticking to a weekly schedule will prevent dust from settling and help you avoid major messes.
Invest in a Whole-Home Air Purifier
You may already know that an air filter keeps dust and debris out of your HVAC system. But did you know that a next-level air cleaner is often necessary for substantial dust problems?
A whole-home air purifier removes almost every speck of dust before it lands on a surface, effectively preventing allergy triggers and keeping your home clean. Since these devices work with your HVAC system, they cover every room in your home, cleaning the air multiple times per hour.
Consider Duct Cleaning
Several issues can contribute to a sudden increase in dust, but at Brennan’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we know that dirty ductwork is often the culprit. Naturally, if a few inches of dust have already accumulated in your home’s ductwork, dust can more easily disperse through your home. Duct cleaning can help eliminate it.
Stop letting poor indoor air quality decrease your quality of life, and start finding a smart solution to eliminate dust. Call Brennan’s Heating & Air Conditioning at 703-783-0145 to learn more about effective IAQ solutions for your home.
