The Art of Dusting Well

Written by 

Dusting seems like a straightforward task: take cloth, wipe, remove dust. Unfortunately, like most things, it’s not as simple as you think to do it well. After all, the last thing you want is to spread more dust around the house while you clean.

There’s an easy step-by-step way to clean up the dust in your house for good and turn you into a housekeeping ace. 

Dusting Tips

Step 1: Turn off fans. As you dust, it’s going to fall down. Keep it from blowing all over the house by turning off fans and the air conditioning.

Step 2: Work from the top down. Start at the highest point you plan to dust, and hit the whole room at that height—shelves, entertainment center, top of the TV—dust everything at that level before moving down. Do this for each level of surfaces.

Step 3: Don’t miss multi-levels! If you’re dusting a bookshelf, for instance; make sure you dust each level, not just the top one.

Step 4: Clean the floor. The dust has to go somewhere, and hopefully most of it has ended up either on your cloth or on the floor. Grab a dry mop for hard floors or a vacuum for furniture and carpet and clear the floors and furniture of dust.

When you’re done, you should have a nearly dust-free house, which is better for everyone in your home. Don’t forget to use door mats at the front and back doors to minimize dirt and dust coming into the house.

If this level of dusting is too time consuming but you still want the results, find a maid service with this kind of dedication to cleanliness in your home.
