In the summer heat, fans are a welcome relief but kick up dust and pollen that has been laying dormant all through winter and spring.
Do you wonder where all your dust comes from? Household dust is often made up of paper products, lint, skin cells, insects, and other organic material. While fans cool they also create a tornado of potentially harmful particles.
A couple simple steps go a long way to reduce the dust in your home. Use a high quality microfiber rag and possibly a dusting product like Pledge. Use a hand held vacuum to help reach the corners. Open curtains and turn on all the lights while cleaning to expose dust that is otherwise hidden.
Pay special attention to high surfaces: exposed cabinet tops, beams and ceiling fans. We recommend dusting decor as well, and even plants like the rubber tree!
