These microparticles, accumulating on the floor and furniture, spoil not only the appearance of your home. The main harm is caused by dust mites that live in house dust. They can provoke asthma, allergies, atopic dermatitis and other diseases.
60% of the dirt is brought into the house from the street. And the main part we bring on our shoes. So take off your shoes immediately at the entrance.
DUST CLUB | Under the influence of static electricity, dust particles are attracted to each other. The effect is amplified due to air circulation when you walk, open doors and windows.
1 Destroy invisible enemies Put rugs, pillows, soft toys and curtains in the washing machine, turning on the dryer for 15 minutes (excellent if your machine has a program for drying down products). To destroy a dust mite, wash products at a temperature not lower than 60 ° C, if the fabric allows. 2 Do not use a feather panicle This accessory looks very nice, but it is useless in dust cleaning, as it carries dust around the room.
3 Tools • A clean paint brush will well remove adhering dust from lampshades, wooden chairs, handrails, or picture frames.
• Rubber gloves moistened with water will quickly remove pet hair from sofas and armchairs.
• A clean white sock is suitable for cleaning dust with horizontal blinds.
4 Let us clarify the endless debate about which is better:• Wet or dry cleaning? A wet rag collects and holds dust, while a dry rag carries it in all directions. In addition, dust particles are the tiniest abrasive. So, wiping the furniture with a dry rag, you scratch the surface. An exception is equipment that is incompatible with water.
• Apply polish to a rag or furniture? It is more correct to spray a cloth and then wipe the furniture with it. By applying polish directly to the furniture, you will spend more money and will wipe longer. If it doesn’t work out completely, sticky coating will remain on the furniture and dust will accumulate faster.
• Vacuum or dust first? Dust tends to settle, so you need to start from the highest surfaces, gradually moving down. You can vacuum the floors at the end of cleaning (modern models of vacuum cleaners pick up particles of house dust, so do not be afraid that it will settle on the shelves again).
5 Remember furniture Upholstered furniture is a favorite habitat of dust mites. Vacuum the cushions on all sides and the upholstery under them.
