You spend an hour dusting and hoovering, but a few days later the surfaces are covered in dust again. Why? Because all of your hard work did nothing to remove the large amounts of dust from the air.
Removing dust from the air is important to protecting your health, especially if you have asthma or allergies. Here are three tips for removing dust from the air.
1. Use an air purifier
Air filters work by passing the air through a filter to remove dust particles as well as allergens such as pollen. You can get an energy-efficient air purifier which will plug into the mains and quickly remove dust from the air. Check out some of the best air purifiers for removing dust here.
A HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter will remove as much as 99.97% of the airborne particles in your home, meaning it will remove practically all of the airborne dust.
2. Change your bedding often
Bed sheets quickly accumulate dust, so you should change them often and wash them in warm water to keep dust mites in check.
3. Dust with a damp cloth
A damp cloth will work much better than a dry cloth for picking up dust. The less dust you have on surfaces, the less will be in the air.
