Respiratory Infections and sinus problems are also common complaints in dusty homes in Warrenville. New homes in Warrenville can also be filled with dust and debris left behind from construction. This dust can be in the air ducts and pushed out into the air system of your home or office.
Dusting The Interior
It is important to dust your home often to prevent the buildup of dust, and the way you dust is important as well. When cleaning your home, it is best to clean from top to bottom, this way, all dust that falls from high up to the floor will be cleaned as well. Start with fans, blinds and high windows and end with floors. It is also important to not dry dust. Using a dry cloth or mop to dust only pushes the dust to other parts of your home. A wet cloth, or a cloth with specialized dusting cleaner will trap the particles to the cloth and prevent them from spreading.
