Take Control of Dust with Smart Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning presents a great opportunity to take control of dust and dirt accumulation in your home and provide a clean slate for the season to come. Take the time to do some serious battle against dust now and make it a part of your regular cleaning routine to make it more manageable. You’ll find the air in your Deerfield, Illinois, to feel a lot cleaner and fresher.

Clean Your Fans

Ceiling fans accumulate an astonishing amount of dust. Since they’re up and out of the way, it’s easy to overlook cleaning tasks associated with your fan’s blades. An effective and trouble-free way to clean the blades is to spray the inside of an old pillowcase with dusting spray or just moisten it with water. Place the entire case over the fan blade. Gently wipe the fan blade off, using the pillowcase to catch all the particles as you go.

Clean all Surfaces

Go through the house and thoroughly clean all surfaces, including those hard-to-reach shelves and cabinet tops. Instead of simply stirring up dust with a feather duster or cotton cloth, use an electrostatic or a microfiber cloth to capture dust as you clean. This holds the particles, so you can dispose of them easily.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Much of the dust in your home hides in your air conditioning unit. Schedule an annual tuneup to clean your HVAC system thoroughly and prepare it for the season ahead. Combine your annual maintenance visit with regular filter changes once every one to three months for optimum dust control in your home.

Dust Thoroughly

Pull your washer, dryer, fridge, and other appliances out, so you can access the hidden dust and spills that accumulate beneath and behind them. Unplug your refrigerator and vacuum the coils on the back to eliminate dust and increase this appliance’s efficiency. Clean around and under your dryer properly as lint and dust from laundering your clothes can quickly and easily accumulate in this area.
